True Life - I Pulled off a Sock Bun

For serious. After all of my Pinterest lust, I figured out how to do a sock bun.

Preface - I suck at anything hair related. My hair is either down and straight, or in a ponytail. I have no clue how to use a curling iron. Rollers scare me. My hair is not fun. It is not a hair amusement park, it's just business.

This is why I'm surprised I even figured out how to do this, but if I can, you can too! My tips - I used Mr. Bee's sock. He has 5 million socks, and his just felt luckier. Also, I can only do the sock bun using my MacBook as a mirror. Silly? Yes.

The final result:

Learn how here:


  1. so so cute!! i think my hair is too short and fine for this look, but i love it on other people!

  2. Wow that looks great!! I haven't tried it yet but these pictures really makes me want to. You're adorable!

  3. That looks wonderful! Very flattering

  4. Love it!!! I resisted for the logest time but it really does look great if done right. I've also been curling my hair with the sock bun (roll damp hair into sock bun, sleep on it and voila - great results)

  5. Perfect sock bun, and I'm loving that striped dress.

    I just came across your lovely blog from twitter and thought I'd say hello!

  6. I've never heard of a sock bun before, but it looks cute! I LOVE your bangs too! :)
