    Default Sock bun help for APL

    So, I've checked out the sock bun tutorial, but what do you do with your ends if your hair isn't long enough to do a braid to wrap around? Mine is APL.

    I did several smaller braids and wrapped those around, then secured with claw clips

    I should add that I have layers, so some pieces are pretty short.

    Hi. I used sock buns at APL and I would twist a little peice and add more twisting as I pinned it against the bun. I had layers growing out too so it was a bit messy but I thought it looked cute. There is a tutorial somewhere with a video of someone doing just that but I have not been here in so long I cant remember whos it was or where to find it . Try youtube.

    Good luck.

    You could use some gel and smooth the ends under the sock and maybe use hair spray. Or use a hair net over the bun and pin it in place over the sock roll.

    I'd just work my way around and pin the ends under with bobby pins.

    tuck the ends as best you can and wrap a long rectangular scarf around the base, making sure that the first go-round you sorta spread the scarf, so that it holds all the ends.

    That's probably the best way to cover all the weird sticky outy bits left from layers (not APL, but had the issue with layers for ages)

    I just try to twist tiny pieces and pin them underneath and if I'm too lazy or they fall out then I separate the extra into two larger pieces and just pin them to the sides of my bun.

    I have the same problem, not enough hair to wrap around the sock bun. I usually put a scrunchie around the base and tuck the pieces in. My hair is black, so a black scrunchie does not show.

    Although I put my hair in a sock bun a couple of days ago and DH said I looked like a librarian or a school marm. Who uses the term "school marm" anymore??
