If you all already know this trick, I appologize. Also I dont have a digital camera so Im going to try my best to give clear instructions. If someone can figure it out and wants to add some pictures, that would be great. This is a bun that requires no bobbypins and is a very secure hold.

You will need 2 hair elastics, 1 scrunchie and a sock. First, cut the toe off of the sock and roll the sock up so that it looks like a doughnut. Set it aside.

Next pull you hair into a ponytail where ever you want the bun to sit. Then take the sock doughnut and slide it onto your ponytail, pulling all your hair throught the middle of the sock. Take the sock all the way up to your head.

Now is where I wish I had a camera. Take your hair and fan it out so that it falls over and covers the sock. Then take the other hair elastic and wrap it around the hair and sock. Now you have a bun with a bunch of hair hanging down.

At this point, you can either leave the hair hanging down and just put the scrunchie around the bun. or you can gather all the hanging hair, twist it and wrap it around the bun and secure with the scrunchie.

Hope I didnt confuse anyone to much.

When you first put your hair in a ponytail, before you put on the sock donut, do you secure the ponytail? Because you said two elastics and there's only one place where you mention it... so I'm guessing that you secure the ponytail with an elastic. Anyway, this looks really cool, the only problem is... which sock should I cut up?! Hehe :P

Love,

There are also cigar-shaped forms that you are supposed to use to roll your hair up with.

These forms were usually sold in "hair" colors.

Don't know if they still sell them. But I think this is general concept you are using.

... at least around here (Germany). I think they would be called artificial ratts (natural ones would be made from your own shed hair).
I have a sausage shaped one that makes the most dramatic french twists.

I'm about, oh two, years late replying to this, but better late than never, right? Just wanted to thank you for the instructions for this style. It's so easy to make! I've always wondered how people could make such perfect round buns, and now I can make them myself.

(p.s A sock in a similiar color as your hair is the best thing to use!)
