Ok so when this trend started I was so keen to try it out because I think it looks super nice! But with my super fine Scandinavian baby hair there was a problem…
When using the classic hair bun (bottom picture), the first type that came out and very wide spread type, you could actually see the difference of colour and the actual “bristles” of the bun. So I upgraded to a fake hair covered bun but it didn’t have the same colour as my own hair and it was very heavy.
I gave up, I had sad puppy eyes when looking at various tutorials of girls with dream hair saying how super easy this is to do and their buns look perfect.
But I then saw the sock bun idea and thought I’d give that a go. I had no expectations, other than maby another failure. But what do you know!
It works! I still don’t get that massive bun but I get a covered and even bun!
Because instead of just “laying” your hair over it like the classic bun you actually roll your hair as you go along and it automatically spreads around.
