There is something to be said about the classic topknot bun. It’s been around for centuries.
The elegant, sophisticated look is making its way back into the fashion world. Inspired by celebrities such as Lauren Conrad, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Bosworth, the bun has become the popular and rising trend (as you’ve seen me sporting the look in my videos).
At last—you can achieve this chic, sexy, and sophisticated look in just a few short seconds! I call this the Sock Bun look.
What you will need:
- A sock or hair donut
- Hair Elastic
- A Brush
- Bobby pins… to ensure your bun is secure if you’ll be working out like ME!
- Hairspray (unless you want the ‘messy’ look—which works too)
Step 1 Brush hair into a high or low ponytail, depending on the look you want to achieve
Step 2 Place the sock or hair donut over the ponytail
Step 3 Wrap the ends of your hair underneath and roll the sock towards your head
My Tip: Gently backcomb your hair if you have layers
Step 4 Spread and tuck hair around the sock or hair donut
My Tip: Secure with pins if you’re doing an #FSS workout
Step 5 Finish with hairspray
