How to Make a Sock Bun – {tutorial}

How to Make a Sock Bun is easier than you may think.  My daughter made this quick video tutorial to show you how, and if you follow her easy instructions, you’ll be making a sock bun in no time!  I love that they look great without bobby pins, they are quick and easy, and they look much fuller than a traditional bun.  Plus, they look beautiful, don’t you think?
