A do it yourself sock donut bun by request.

April 20, 2012

i Have gotten lots of requests on how i achieve this bun and i decided to do a video tutorial on it just to show you ladies how to do it. It´s actually quite simple and everything needed to make the bun is always readily available. This is a good alternative protective style to spice up your regular bun.

you will simply need:

  • some clean old socks, pick the socks according to your hair colour.
  • a clean  old pantyhose aka stockings in kenya. if you find one with a silky texture the better.
  • two hair holders.
  • optional: a larger hair holder to secure the hair. especially on shorter hair.
  • also optional : bobby pins to keep the hair tucked in.
For more detailed instructions on how to achieve this look, please watch this video.
