The Foolproof Guide To Doing A Sock Bun Without A Sock

Sock buns are awesome, but it can be really frustrating when you can’t get it to work. And if you don’t have a bunch of hair or if you have fine hair, it’s probably not going to cover that sock.

I’m not the biggest fan of sock buns because I think it’s weird to put a sock in your bun. Don’t even get me started on those hair donuts.

That’s why I do the style of a sock bun without the sock! It can be done, I promise. I’m going to show you how to do just that today in a few easy steps!

    You could at least twist your hair and wrap it around and it actually works 🙂

      I doubt you’ll get what you want by calling someone a retard. How rude.

    • Your mom

      Thats quite rude. What the hell man? Un-braid “ya” hair and use bobby pins or don’t click on this and don’t bitch 🙂

      That was a very racist comment, Shontelle.
      You basically called all white people retards.
      Just take out your braids. The style won’t work with braids. Put your braids back in if you still want them.
      Did you even look at the directions?
      There are no “socks” or “Do-nuts” in the style.
      And if you still want to keep your braids, just google “buns with braids” or something similar. I hope you had fun offending people.

      That’s very mean and assuming. Not all white people are retards, and I can say that even though I’m Indian. Also, fyi, these instructions don’t require socks or donuts, and bobby bins are just to keep it in place. You can use thin hair bands (rubber (except not actual rubber) bands, whatev they’re called) instead. If you want to know how to do a bun with braids, please look it up online instead of demanding the author of this post who has been kind enough to give the rest of us this tutorial, which, I might add, is very useful and relieving for those of us with shoulder length and thick hair who don’t want to use a sock.
