The classic topknot or bun is one trick every Fashionista should learn to master. It’s the perfect style whether you’re heading to a formal occasion, out on the town or just looking to add a little sophistication to your look. The sock bun, which takes a bit more effort than your average topknot, is definitely worth the time. It adds volume and you won’t be busy fixing your hair throughout the day. It’s also one of the easiest ways to get a runway look at home.
Start by cutting off the foot section of a sock and rolling the remaining part into a doughnut shape. This is where you can play around, use a thick or longer sock to get an exaggerated bun like this Fashionista or keep it simple with a small sock for a more casual topknot. Once your hair is in a ponytail, wrap the ends of your hair around the sock and begin to roll the sock down, continuing to wrap your hair onto the sock until you’ve reached the crown of your head. Sound complicated? Luckily, there are plenty of tutorials online. Add some pins to keep it in place and tease various strands as you wish to fluff out the bun.
The best part about this hair style is it's versatility. You can make it messy if you’re running around to class all day, simple and neat for when you want a polished look or big and bold when you want to make a statement. Whatever your personal style is, you can be sure to find an outfit this topknot complements. This Fashionista was dawning a simple yet cute striped sweater with riding boots. Her bun added just enough elegance to her casual look. If you haven’t played around with this trick yet Fashionistas, now is the ideal time to perfect it so you can rock it this holiday season!
