Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé rock polished and elegant buns on the red carpet and while their up dos may look intimidating and time consuming, achieving this beautiful wrapped bun is extremely simple. Samreen Samad shows you how...
You need: A sock, a pair of scissors, two rubber bands and bobby pins.
Step 1: Cut off the toe of your sock and roll the fabric down into a doughnut.
Step 2: Pull your hair back into a high ponytail and secure it with a thin black rubber band.
Step 3: Place the sock doughnut at the end of your ponytail and pull strands through the hole in the centre. Try to disperse hair evenly around the doughnut.
Step 4: Start rolling the sock down along with your hair, towards your ponytail until you reach the base.
Step 5: As you roll, tuck loose strands of hair underneath the doughnut. When you reach the base, fill in the gaps by spreading your hair out.
Step 6: Tidy up loose ends and stray strands with bobby pins and tie a rubber band around the bun to secure it.
Step 7: You can add flowers or embellishments to your sock bun to dress it up.
