diy: the doughnut bun

February 17, 2012


Looks like any old bun right? Wrong! I learned a little secret from my sister-in-law Rachel and I thought I’d share it with you. It’s this thing called the doughnut bun, or the doughnut sock, or the sock bun. You can choose any name you want but basically it’s a trick to creating the perfect full bun! I tried this in December {for this outfit post}, but forgot about these photos until now. So if you’re seeing this tutorial for the millionth time, I’m sorry! But if you’re seeing it for the first time, yay! Get ready to learn something new!
Have you heard of this trick before? Has it worked on your hair? As my hair has gotten longer it’s harder to hold a bun style, unless I use a ton of bobby pins, so this idea has been helpful! I love buns that will stay put all day with no maintenance. I hope my steps make sense. If not, leave a comment and I’ll address it!

I hope you all have a great weekend!!
Please ignore my wrist brace! It’s the result of too much computer use 🙁
