Put a sock in it.

I've been asked to put this tutorial on the blog many times... so here we go.

My wonderful sister, blogged about this yesterday... and well, I stole the pics. It's what sisters are for!

Welcome to the world of my sock-bun. This is what I do when I want a big ballerina bun, or really when I am lazy/late for work...etc.

1. Take a sock and cut off the toe. Instead of being like me, choose a sock that is remotely close to your hair color. I know, I do not have zebra striped hair... but it was the closest sock when I first tried this.

2. Roll the sock, until it looks like a donut.


3. This is like a magic trick. Look - a zebra striped donut!


4. Roll-baby-roll. This is where you place your ponytail through the middle of your sock and start rolling the edges under, inside out. Keep on rollin', rollin', rollin'...


Whala... the Sock-Bun!
{* Disclaimer - For all the mean people out there who like to comment anonymously, yes... I know it's Voila, but Whala is more fun. And I'm going to leave it. Kwit being so ceerious.}

I hope you all try this... I like to wear it low and sophisticated or high for style and drama. Let me know what you thinky.

This is basically the most amazing thing ever! I am trying this immediately.

Sweet Simplicity said...

I have always wondered how people get such big buns. Thanks for sharing!!

Sasha said...

This is fab. Some trick better than the spin pin?
Oh my gosh. I'm getting out a sock ASAP.
Wonder if it works on baby fine hair.
I bet if I big sexy root spray it to death it will be teased
into sock bun submission. Hooray!

Jax said...

Ha! I love this! I wish I hadn't cut my hair so I could give it a shot!

Three Pink Dots said...

Bianca, you always have a great bun... but now it will be even easier!

Three Pink Dots said...

You're welcome Lindsey, I'd love to see when you try!

Three Pink Dots said...

Sasha- I know... I thought my life had changed forever when I met the spin-pin... now my life has changed again.. and this time over a sock! It's also a great party trick too. :)

Three Pink Dots said...

Jax - You can do it! Well... you just might need a smaller sock. Maybe try one of those slipper socks? Just kidding, I would love to try!

Heather said...

This is amazing!! I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for sharing!

Anonymous said...

I have been trying this till my arms hurt and I can't seem to get my hair to stay around the donut. I feel like I am missing part of the trick..haha How about a video?

Anonymous said...

I've had real success with this and LOVE it. It was hard to figure out how to roll the sock. I think what worked for me was to unroll the sock onto my pony tail (until it looked like my ponytail was wearing a sock) and then did the rolling. A few extra bobby pins secured the few strays I had. Overall this is a WOW!!! I've done both hi and lo buns and they look so cool!

Anonymous said...

I second the request for a video! I don't know why but I can't picture how you roll it the correct way to get such a perfect big bun. I'm hair clueless!

Three Pink Dots said...

I'm so glad you had success with it! I'm thinking about the requests to do a video on this, but I haven't done one before so I'm not sure!! :)

Katelyn said...

Oh PLEASE do a video! hahaha I can't figure out the roll part either. LOL not even the into a donut part. ahahaha But I SO badly wanna do this!! Get your video on girl! ;) LOL

Patricia Stuever said...

I had not seen it done this way. The way I'd seen before makes a really tight neat bun vs. this way is a little more loose and wispy. The difference is pulling the ponytail all the way through putting the sock close to your head then kinda place your hair all the way around the bun flat. Grab a hair band put it around the entire thing then you can gather the hair that's sticking out and either wrap and pin with bobby pins or braid and wrap. You can also put this on top of your head at night(spraying your hair lightly with water) and get "sock bun curls". I'm going to try it your way tomorrow though. :)

Miss Lindsay said...

I just found this on Pinterest... amazing! Pretty please do a video tutorial.

buying a donut in your haircolor at sally is always an option, too. that is what i use and they're relatively cheap.

It will also make pretty curls if you sleep in it. The more your hair is layered, the more curls you have.

Mary said...

i'm still confused, do i just roll the sock down my ponytail

Your's is my favorite sock bun of all online! I am pinning it right now to pinterest! Would you mind if I re-posted on my blog? Thanks!!! Also...following you as of...now!

Three Pink Dots said...

Thanks y'all! Emily, of course you can repost - thanks for stopping by, so glad to have you!! Fun blog you have!

Kristine said...

This just did not work for my thin, layered hair. I couldn't get enough hair to wrap around to cover the sick and little hairs were sticking out all over. :(

FullertonRegan said...

This is why I love the internets! I remember years and years ago having to look for a hair contraption called a rat, I believe. I never found one, so I, to this day mind you, just hairspray the beejebus out of my hair, rait it like I'm in a White Snake video, and do a notmal chignon that way. turns out poofy, but oi what a hassle. Cannot wait to try this one!!!!

SouthernMama said...

Thanks for sharing! This is so quick & easy! Plus, it holds my hair comfortably & securely all day.

Three Pink Dots said...

So glad it's working out. If you all have questions email or tweet me. There are tons of videos out there that can help as well.

Regan - I want to see the before and after... send in the White Snake look!

It's spelled "Voila" not "Whala" (Really it's Voilà if you know how to make an à)

It amazes me that so many people do now know this.

Three Pink Dots said...

I know it's spelled Voila, I was making a funny. Thanks for being so ceerious, oops I meant serious. And if you are going to make fun of my spelling, well you should probably say everything correctly in your comment.

"It amazes me that so many people do NOT know this", not now. :)

I am having trouble with this. It seems like there is a step missing...how do I roll the sock down..it's not catching my hair! :(

Brooke @ Inside-Out Design said...

Love this!! I just found you from Pinterest, and all because of this super awesome post I'm rushing up to click follow! Can't wait to read more cool tips from you!!

Jenny said...

OMG it worked. An attractive hairstyle on MY head, that I did myself. YOU ARE MY HERO!!!

Three Pink Dots said...

Yay, so glad it's working. Welcome Brooke, so glad to have you!

If you are having trouble rolling it down you have to start with your hair wrapping around and then roll from the inside of the sock down. Clear as mud? Keep trying ! Watch the videos on these comments too, they help.

Echo Starr said...

Instead of cutting up a sock, i've always just rolled up a leg warmer- it works great! :)

Anonymous said...

"Voila" I think is what you meant

SoShawna said...

Holy cow this was easy, even with my long hair. Tried this and also some of the other methods on some YouTube demos, but this was hands-down my favorite and easiest. NO pins required and I love the messy look...yet it's up outta my way and comfortably secured. "WHALA"!
You are the bomb-diggity. Thank you for posting! By the way, I ran across you on Pinterest :-)

Unknown said...

I first heard about this on pinterest from a youtube video and I gave it a try... however my hair is SUPER thick and layered and I couldn't get it to roll right with 1 bun so I ended up doing two and looked like a scary Princess Leia! :( And the buns weren't that great. Thought I'd see if anyone has a suggestion

Brittany said...

I'm new to your blog, and found this post on pinterest. Even though I'm realizing I'm WAY behind the times, I have to tell you, I love this! Worked on the second try (and the first try worked too, but not as securely), and it feels so comfortable! Yay for no pins! Thanks so much, I'm definitely going to be following along now!

Anonymous said...

This has been a military tradition for years. It's how we all are told to wear our hair from day 1 in basic training. More form fitted to the head though for a sleeker look . But if anyone is having trouble with it and know a female military member, just ask. That way you could get a more hands on experience. Just my 2 cents! :). Great post though!!

Mindy said...

Cool idea and looks great. Going to try it with my hair. my hair goes down the middle of my back but buns i make always look like they're lacking.
(oh and btw, its 'voila' not 'whala')

Paulette Fletcher said...

My hair is super fine and not too long so I use a toddler sock. Doesn't turn out as nig as yours but def. does the trick!

Stef said...

Your sock bun is wicked and I'm doing it TO-NIGHT. Been thinking about the bun all day lol

Did two people seriously still make comments about your whala? Sheesh!!!

On a better note, love this and I'm so happy w how my hair turned out!

aa385 said...

This is really cute! If you damp your ponytail then roll it before you go to bed and take it out when you wake up, it will be super curly!!!

mrstrishb said...

Many military women have been doing this for years. It really is amazing and simple! =)

S. Smith said...

Great idea! I wonder if a baby leg warmer will work so I don't have to ruin a sock! So gonna try this :)

Kelly said...

So I watched one of the videos with the funny unprepared girl and thought, "No WAY will this ever work with my little-shorter-than-shoulder-length-ringlet-curly hair". But seriously, I tried it anyway. The first time? Not so pretty. The second time? I was practically skipping arou d the house, squealing like a little girl because it was so fabulous!! My kids might think I'm a freak, but I have an awesome bun, so who cares?? They think I'm a freak anyway! :)

Kellie Alexander said...

Awesome! I'm trying it! :) Found you on meandjorge.com so props to her.

Anonymous said...

I love this too! I actually have one in right now, but I'm about to go to bed =) if you spritz your hair with some water before you put the sock in and leave it until your hair dries it creates really pretty curls!

Amanda Spearman said...

Ok, so I'm a hair dresser and I am dying to not only try this myself but I can't wait to show my clients!! Ubber creative!! LOVE IT, You RAWK. (I to like to spell things wrong on purpose :D)

At first I didn't think it would stay in & I'd have to keep pushing it back up. But it worked perfectly. I loved it & co-workers kept commenting on it. thanks for the tips.

Monique said...

I used to do this when I was in middle school and high school. Its a cheap way to make a bun with out buying one of those bun rollers from the beauty store. You can do it with shorter hair just make a smaller sock roll. To hold my hair down I used to put a hair tie over after pulling the hair down and over the sock roll and use add bobby pins. Now that I'm 28 I think I might go back to doing this.

Katie said...

Hahahaha, so, funny story: I kinda just skimmed the directions, so when I tried doing this, I just grabbed a sock and didn't cut off the toe, so I was so confused with how you made the donut.

Karen said...

Cool Idea!

Yay, can't wait to try it!

PS. I love your whala comment, but I think you meant "voila", not "viola". ;)

This is the best tutorial I've seen on this application for a hair bun. I just wish my daughter's hair was long enough for it; would have made for a better hair night at her dance recital last week. Thanks again!

Meghan said...

You need to do a Video about this because I'm lost

Kristy said...

This is my favorite quick style ever! I'm wearing one right now and its even super comfy because it requires no bobby pins :)

Parsimonious Mama said...

You guys should let your hair dry about 75% first, And then put it up...makes GORGEOUS waves when dry!!

*Amy* said...

I tried this with my hair a little damp and slept in it because I heard the curls you get from this style are amazing. My hair is super fine and never holds a curl so I was really skeptical about the curls it would produce afterward but they turned out gorgeous! It takes a few times to figure out how wet to get your hair so it's dry by the time you need to take it out but the curls last all day and if you brush them out you get beautiful bouncy waves!

In 1985 I was in 4th grade. I was going to have a birthday party and I made my own invitations, All By Myself (my mom wouldn't help me). I wanted to be funny and wrote You're Invited to my Pawty! And boy oh boy I caught hell! No one came and after that, I only had one friend the rest of my time until college...I was way ahead of my time LOL
Don't let the bullies wear you out!

Courtney said...

Just found this on Pinterest! I tried it on Thanksgiving Day and got a ton of compliments. Best of all, I sprayed my pony tail with just a little water and the next day I had curls!! I used a smoothing seurm so it wasn't frizzy!
Love how you wore it with a headband! I am a new follower!

Just found you via Pinterest! And I love the whala and the kwit being so ceerious. The English language is just ridiculous sometimes. :)

Cute and easy, I love this! I am totally doing this tomorrow!

Hayley said...

I hopelessly failed...The rolling down my hair part didn't go so well. My hair is extremely thick, I couldn't get it all to roll together. Any advice? I so wish I could do this successfully!

Anonymous said...

To me the donut part reminds me a little of the donut you have to learn to make when getting your first aid card (it's used for head wounds in case anyone wants to know). Perhaps a washcloth or old dishrag might work just as well (The idea of putting a sock in my hair kinda grosses me out)...Regardless, an interesting idea indeed...

P.S. Whala sounds way cooler than Voila anyway (plus "Whala!" kind of brings back nostalgic memories of my childhood)

Tulip Row said...

I love this. I don't have enough hair for it, but maybe later, or even maybe with a fake pony?? I'm your newest follower, you can follow back at tuliprow.blogspot.com

I just attempted this with my shoulder-length, baby-fine, thin-ish hair and it worked out great. I used a smaller, less fluffy sock and also secured it all around with an elastic. For anyone with similar hair that is struggling, I suggest doing that.

This is Genius!!! Saw it on Pinterest and decided to give it a try pronto. Easiest hair-do ever. Literally took me less than five minutes, and that included finding a sock to use.

You make it look so easy! I hope I can get it to work in my thin hair. My daughter-in-law had to do hers for the Navy, and she does her daughters that way as well for ballet. But, to be honest, I think I enjoyed reading all the comments more, lol. It just amazes me how people will post a comment without fully reading what you wrote, and having the nerve to correct you, and then spelling things wrong themselves, haha. Come on people, quit trying so hard, and just enjoy IT. Thanks for posting this on pintrest!

I just tried a black sock with my red and black hair ad it worked great. My hair is really layered, and I actually used a men's business sock, so the donut was tighter and smaller. I love this!

Just did it on my young daughter's fine hair and it took me a couple tries to figure it out (I'm clueless when it comes to hair)...but I got it! Still, I'd have to secure it with something if she was going to wear it for a long time. Found this on Pinterest.

Now I understand why people ask me if I do the "sock bun" on my daughter hair and all I can answer was NO, that is all her hair (I am Spanish person and my Daughter have a lonnnggg an thick hair so is easy to put it in a bun when she is going to school! anyway now I now what people are talking about! great tutorial!!!!

Just tried the sock trick this morning and it is awesome! So easy...and fast too! Now instead of resorting to the messy bun on days when I don't have time to really do my hair or when I'm feeling lazy, I will use this...so much sleeker than the messy bun!

Hahaha, my husband asked what I was reading, so I showed him. He looked confused and said, "You girls are so silly. Pencils in your hair, socks in your hair... What's next? A cereal bar in your hair?

You could also place the donut at the base of the ponytail, then spread out your hair then use a rubber band to make the bun, the remaining loose hair just wrap around the base of the bun.

If you do it while your hair is wet and sleep on it, then you will have amazing curls the next day (:

To all you ladies with super fine hair like me -- I just used the leg of a pair of panty hose and it worked great! I found that with my thin hair, the most difficult and important step was the first roll of hair. Be sure to wrap it equally and evenly around the entire panty hose doughnut! From then on, it's happy rolling!

Great post, thanks!

I do this probably 3 days out of the week I LOVE it! BUT mine always look too perfect, no mess to it, just a smooth donut. It could be because my hair is long and I don't have many layers.
Did your sister tease the top to get a little poof to it, and mess up the bottom? or did she just roll it that fabulously?

Have you ever tried using a hair donut instead of a sock? BunQueen.com has them and they are really inexpensive!

I love the sock bun. I use it to make my hair curly. Before rolling the sock on your hair, wet your hair down enough so that it will dry by morning. Then put the sock on and sleep in it and in the morning you will have beautiful curls. I call it the lazy way to get beautiful hair.

u should put a video on here of u putting the sock bun in.
