Make your bun big and bold with the help of a sock!

1.First, cut off the toe area of a clean sock and roll the fabric down into a doughnut.

2.Next, pull you hair back into a high ponytail and secure with elastic at the crown of your head.

3.Place the sock at the very end of your ponytail and pull strands through the hole in the center.

4.Then, starting in the front, smooth you hair over the sock doughnut, tucking the ends of your hair underneath it. Try to disperse the hair evenly around the doughnut.

5.Finally, when you reach the base, fill in the gaps in the bun’s structure by gently spreading your hair out. Tidy up the loose ends and strands of hair by pinning them around the base of your already tucked bun.
