For the perfect bun, get a little help from your sock drawer. Here's how to get a glamor sock bun in a few easy steps. To start, cut off the toe of your sock. So, all your left with is the tube. The thickness of the sock will vary basic on how thing your hair is, the thicker your hair, the thinner the sock. Also choose a sock that matches your hair color. Next, bend forward and bring all your hair to a ponytail on top of your head. Secure your hair with an elastic band. Then, thread your hair through the tube of the sock. Begin wrapping your hair over the tube to hide the sock. Roll the sock toward your head as you wrap, continuing to tuck the hair under the sock. Do this until all of your hair is part of the bun and the sock is completely hidden. After the sock is completely hidden, secure the hair to the base of your ponytail with bobby pins. You can also try using a doughnut instead of a sock. Bobby pins can be inserted directly into it and it will hold your hair firmly in place. You can find doughnuts at any hair supply shop. Finish the look off with a light hold hairspray.
