Class is now officially in session across the majority of the country this week and now Fashionistas are looking for new and creative ways to do their hair and makeup for appropriate class attire. One style that's been popping up around campus is the quick, easy, low budget yet super trendy sock bun!
I instantly noticed how this Fashionista was rocking the end of summer casual look in her cropped top, high-waisted jean shorts and Michael Kors accessories. I also loved how she dared to wear cat-eyed sunglasses, which have been all the rage this summer as well! But the best part of the look was her volumnious sock bun, a new hairstyle that's been catching on fast this fall. The bun is versatile and an easy way to do your hair before that much too early 8 a.m. class. For those who may be interning, it can be done tight and clean, which gives it a dressed up and professional feel. As this Fashionista shows us, it can also be messy and loose for a casual yet trendy look.
Although actually creating the sock bun isn’t all that complicated it helps to have step-by-step visual instructions, which can be found here. Definitely make sure you spray your bun with a firm-holding, yet pliable hairspray to ensure it lasts all day and tames flyaways; try Redken's Quick Dry 18. Once you've mastered the sock bun you can experiment with numerous ways to embellish it. From headbands to clip in flowers, you can make your bun one of a kind. So when you're getting sick of doing your hair the same way day after day, just put a sock in it!
