A few of you requested me to show you how I do the sock bun.  I took some pictures to document the process.  Make sure to start off by moisturising your hair.

Begin with an old (clean) sock.  The size (and thickness) of the sock will determine the size of your bun.  I used the leg of a pair of opaque tights.

Cut of the toe of the sock so it is open at both ends.

Roll up the stocking to make a ‘doughnut’.

Comb your hair back and tie it into a ponytail.  Position the ponytail where you want the bun to be.

Place the rolled sock over the ponytail so that your hair goes through the hole in the sock.

Spread your hair out over the sock, make sure there are no gaps where the sock is showing through.

Place a ponytail holder or band around the hair and sock to hold everything in place.

Tuck in any hair under the bun to hide away the ends of the hair.

It takes a few minutes to do.  Give it a try!  If your bun looks frizzy you can cover it with a hair net to make it look neater.

How awesome is this protective style? 'Bunning' is a great way to keep the ends of your hair protected, while still being able to moisturize daily or every other day. Will you guys be trying the sock bun from Tendayi of African Hair Blog? Let us know in the comment section below.
