Hi. My name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hairstylist, and I'm going to show you how to do a sock bun with thick curly hair. First thing we're going to do is we're going to take our sock and we're just going to cut the toes off. You're going to roll the sock into a little sock doughnut and just keep rolling. I like to roll from the toes to the end part where the elastic is because then it'll give a nice little lip and it'll hold on to your sock doing it really well. And we're going to start with a ponytail. You can place the ponytail on the top, middle, wherever you want your bun to be. And then you're just going to feed the hair through one time. If you have a lot of hair like our model it's good to work in sections. That way you can, it makes it just a little bit easier to work with. So I'm going to take this section first. It is about one third of her hair, so we'll probably do about three sections and just make it nice and smooth. And just feed your finger through the sock doughnut, grab the hair and pull through. And you're just going to continue to do that until you get all of your ends in section by section. OK. Take your next section and do the same thing. Just kind of pick up where you left off. Fingers through, grab the hair and keep feeding it through. And you can always separate the hair and spread it out to make sure that you cover the whole sock. It's good to start with a sock that's really close to your hair color to begin with. Keep feeding through, this is the last section. Almost there. And this just gives a really nice clean polished look. It's really easy to do once you get the hang of it. And you really just want to make sure to get your ends tucked in. You can always secure it with a bobby pin if it doesn't feel that secure. So everything's in there. And I'm just going to secure it. There we go. You can see from the back, from the front. My name is Claire Coleman, and I just showed you how to do a sock bun for thick curly hair.
