1. In order to do this braid, you will need to use a sock bun. Learn how to make a sock bun here: http://www.weddingchicks.com/2012/04/07/diy-sock-bun/
2. However, before you secure the bun with bobby pins, leave out a piece of hair, making sure it is thick enough to cover the base of your bun.
3. Once you are done pinning your bun, braid the leftover hair. Secure it at the edge with a thin ponytail that matches your hair color.
4. Wrap the braid around the base of the bun and secure it with bobby pins, and you’re done!
The braided sock bun is a great way to get your hair away from your face and still look great. A small tip we can give you is to make the hairdo a little more sophisticated by making the leftover hair into a fishtail. Don’t worry if the bun is a little complicated to make, just use bobby pins and try it more than once if you need to. Practice makes perfect!
