The Middle Part
Obviously, this is super easy. I have found that I like this much more when I curl my hair with a curling iron, or give it a little more body with velcro rollers. And when you implement the middle part, you instantly look like Carrie Underwood photoed above... errr maybe not. Whatever, moving on.
The Sock Bun
I'm addicted. Not only is this so clean, chic, and appropriate for nearly any occasion, it is SO easy to do. I have a little variation in the way I do mine in comparison to most of the how-to's I've seen. So, check out this lovely tutorial below.
First, cut the toe of a sock off. A gray snowman sock is not required, but it is strongly encouraged. Most people roll the sock up into a donut at this point, as seen above. This is where my version is different. I tried using the donut, but it just doesn't work on my hair. So, as you can see below, I roll the sock up with my hair as I go.
1. Put your hair in a ponytail.
2. Slide your hair through the sock leaving an inch or two to work with outside of the sock.
3. Begin rolling your hair outward along with the sock.
4-7. Continue to roll your hair and the sock down and out until there's nothing left to roll :)
8. Secure any fly-aways with bobby pins, and go rock your sock bun!
