The Secret to the Carrie Bradshaw Bun

I don't know about you, but I loved when Carrie on SATC wore her hair in a huge ballerina bun. So pretty. So I gave it a try a while back, and unless you have ungodly amounts of hair, this style is a no-go. Or so I thought...

Until I learned the secret. An ordinary sock. Thank goodness for hair tutorials on youtube! Can't get enough of them. Here are my inspiration photos, my take on the sock bun, and my new fave video that taught me the the sock bun.

Enjoy!

Oh. My. Gawd. The sock bun is pure genius, Lauren! I have GOT to grow out my hair - great way to make it look like I have more hair, too!

What an amazing idea! And I loved so much Carrie's buns, she looked so chic! Too bad I have cut my hair!:(

Following you now on bloglovin and Google, I would love it if you followed me back!
