How To: Loose Bun and Sock Bun

     Happy “How To’s Day” everyone! At long last, here is the sock bun tutorial that everyone has been asking for.  I do mine a little differently than the ones that have been making their way around Pinterest, but it works for me.  I also threw in a loose bun tutorial for good measure.
     I apologize for the quality of the video, my computer and I were not getting along, and the computer won this round, but at least I got the post up.

     I didn’t do the upside down braid in the video tutorial because it is really hard to do a video tutorial upside down.  If you want to do the braid:
1) Flip your hair upside down and brush it towards the floor.
2) Start your french braid at the nape of your neck and braid in larger pieces as you work your way down.
3) When you get to the sides of your head, just above your ears, stop and put your hair in a tight pony tail.
*When I do the sock bun by itself I make my pony tail really tight, but when I do the braid with it, I poof the front of my hair up for volume because it’s hard to get the braid to look really clean and tight, and because I like a little volume.

Here is the Bun video:

I hope those were helpful.
