Im so excited after spending the last 2 hours researching and watching video after video about how to do a sock bun I made one and DD12 helped take pics....were gonna do hers too. (it will probally look better, she has longer hair and no layers..
and since this pic was taken in natural sunlight without flash it is the exact (fading) color I see when I look in the mirror....I love this bun and my hair will probally be in one quite a bit from here on out THANKS LHC I ♥ YOU!!!!

Hey looks good!

I wrapped nylon around my sock bun by cutting up some brown pantyhose. I then cut some 'bands' out of the extra to wrap around the bun to secure the hair.

That's a really nice summer hair style: it looks cool and sleek, but also casual, with the bandanna.

There ya go! That really works for you. Now you have a nice summer 'do' to keep your hair out of the way.

Oh that looks PERFECT!!! The sock bun was my favourites when I first started growing, it makes you look like you have so much HAIR!! I still like it because my hair is so thin normal buns are teeny tiny LOL

waw, your sock-bun looks great! :o
I like the idea of putting a bandana-thing around the bun, I'm surely going to try that one..
Thanks a lot!

That bun looks perfect, and as though you are hiding several feet of hair in there.

Now I shall have to try that, wonder where all the socks in this house are?

Your sock bun looks flawless! It's beautiful. wow... flawless...thanks!!!


Hey looks good!

I wrapped nylon around my sock bun by cutting up some brown pantyhose. I then cut some 'bands' out of the extra to wrap around the bun to secure the hair. I used a nylon around a sock also...heard its less drying to the hair


It looks great and camouflages the two toneness well!...I love how it puts the two tones together like highlights


Thank you to everyone else also.♥♥♥♥ since I just couldnt quote you all. I'm so happy to have learned this...its a perfect summer style and it makes me look like I have TONS of hair. And the fact that its one style that you can still use when the hair gets waist and longer. I will have to go get more bandana/wrap thingys and maybe try it with a hair stick or two....:cheese::cheese::cheese::cheese:

Congratulations, Angie, the sock bun is terrific! Very nice, I am wearing one myself today, seems as if several folks decided this is the style of the day. Makes your hair look long and I love the bandana idea!

I love it! It makes you look like you have a ton of hair!:)
What do people with longer hair do with the ends?

I think they wrap it around, tuck it in, braid it or let it hang down undernieth...


Again thankyou everyone who commented ♥

That's odd; I can do them, and my hair clumps like crazy. HAve you tried one on damp hair?

And the bun does look nice.

That is absolutely astonishing redneckprincess. I simply wouldn't believe that you hair was only 18 inches long and layered from this beautifully done sock bun, you give the illusion of having THICK, WAIST length or longer hair! Definitely when you have time to yourself wear you hair in this style, it looks magnificent!

Wow, so pretty. Your hair is fading nicely and looks great too.
