the dough nut bun...

i've noticed a lot of hype over the 'new' sock/doughnut bun hairstyle.  i have to say, i'm a huge fan.  i have long hair, but it's very fine, and layered.  normally i have to tease/back comb my hair like crazy to result in a voluminous bun on the top of my head.  the sock bun was such an easy fix to this!

you just take a sock, cut the toe off, roll it up (like a donut), put your hair in a ponytail, and roll it down.  i pinned mine in place with two bobby pins, but it was more for reassurance. i think it would've stayed in place on it's own.  for a more detailed tutorial, check this out. it's the one i used.  i tried to find a video on youtube, but was unsuccessful.  it seems all of the sock-bun videos are a different method, and i didn't like it as much.
