    Default ain't no bun like a sock bun!

    Just wanted to share that, although I've had long hair most of my life, it was only since joining this forum this month that I've been exposed to the wonder that is the SOCK BUN!

    I did a high sock bun on Friday and my husband was like, "Wow, that looks really elegant!" I couldn't wait to show him the trick.

    And I've tried a low bun for work. Way better than the sad little natural bun my fine hair makes.

    Thanks!

    they are certainly one of the best things i learnt from LHC - (the fully wrapped version - for some reason the normal version just doesnt sit right on my head)

    Found it! I'll have to try it when my hair is dry... which will be in a couple hours . It looks kind of tricky, but worth the effort.

    First few times I had a disaster, but it really is easy after you get the hang of it.

    I totally agree, its so neat and tidy, and relatively easy, no wonder so many in the military use it. I may be biased at it was the sock bun that led me here! Notoriousnoee has a good video on You Tube on the very subject:

    I so agree, I can't wait for my layers to grow out so that I can try it myself, the fully wrapped one. I can do the "normal" one, but I don't like the way it looks, it's too obvious maybe.
