Hi, my name is Claire Coleman. I’m a hairstylist, and I’m going to show you how to do a sock bun with long hair. First thing we’re going to do is we’re going to take a sock, and you just cut the toe part off, and you’re going to roll it down to create kind of a doughnut. And, I like to roll it from the toes to the top, because it has elastic at the top, so it’ll keep it nice and tight. And then, just fold it over. Little doughnut. And, we’re going to start with the hair in a ponytail. You can put it anywhere on the head that you’d like, depending on where you want the height of your bun to be. And then, you’re just going to use the sock as the base. And, if you have a lot of hair, you’re going to want to separate a couple of sections just to make it a little bit easier to work with. So, I think I want to do two, maybe three sections with this one. And, you’re just going to start wrapping your hair around the sock bun – or, around the sock. And, just use your fingers to kind of feed the hair through, like that. And, just keep wrapping and make sure that you’re covering all of the sock. And, really try and make sure you get your ends in there, because this is going to be a nice, clean, tight, look. And, just work section by section. It doesn’t have to go all in one shot – you can adjust everything pretty easily. Just make sure that you’re covering everything in there. And, I really just stick my finger through the sock and then pull the section through. Makes it easier that way. And, just keep feeding through until everything’s covered. I think we’re going to do one more section. And, just keep working in the same direction that you’re going in – it’ll just make it look nice and smooth, it’ll cover everything. And then, you can pull it and make it tighter. Almost there. And, once you get your ends in there, if you feel like it’s a little loose, just secure it with some pins. You can also spread it out to make sure that everything’s covered evenly. Here’s the back, you can see. And, from the front. My name is Claire Coleman, and I just showed you how to do a sock bun with long hair.
