    I just discovered sock buns. They look super cute and are easy to do. I do them like in the vid–minus the brush and with a much smaller bun form.

    I made a satin-covered bun form following this tutorial: ( It works well and should lessen breakage while allowing for moisture retention.

    Here's another sock bun how-to video: (

    well brushing is damaging to the hair in massive amounts. a good boar bristle brush is the best thing to brush ur hair with since it natural fibers..plastice burshes can just rip ur hair. I am an avid bunner…if thats what u can call it! lol since high school …as long as u take the time to not make it really tight and in the same exact spot all the time ( let ur hair breath from any style) you should be okay. I do a sock bun but i do it with a dress sock because they are usually a smooth material or silky which helps with hair breakage.

    I make my sock bun the same as Sam I am. Take a pair of socks and cut the foot off and roll the sock down. the larger the sock the larger the hole to bring the hair through. I heard brushing wet hair is bad for your hair too.

    I've tried and tried the sock bun, and it just doesn't work for me. What I've discovered that does is the banana clip! I have fine, BSL wavy hair. So, it's never thick enough to fully cover the sock bun and then I have all these ends to tuck under. But, with the banana clip, it creates this really wide base and I just loosely wrap and pin my hair around it! I get this huge, messy bun. Love it! Also, the banana clip can be used for so many other things. My other favorite thing to do with it is make a curly faux hawk.

    Nothing against this young woman, but I have never liked these types of "buns". They look so fake and disproportionate to me. When a bun is that thick and the rest of the hair is not, it looks really bizarre and unnatural to me. Like someone just stuck a chocolate donut on the back of their head.

    When I used to make them I would cut the foot off of an black sock and roll it down (into the doughnut shape). I used to buy the foam bun makers from Sally's but then I got smart.

    I know from personal experience that brushing is not good for your hair. For me, it shredded my edges.
    The style is super cute, but I wouldn't do it as a protective style because it's stressful on the edges, and it can cause traction alopecia where the bun is located if it is pulled too tight.

    im almost to the pont where i can sock bun my hair..only about two more inches and im in there!!! super excited…and yes i did hear that brushing your hair while wet is a no no because of frizz and breakage.

    when I was relaxing my hair this was my all time favorite style. I cant wait for my hair to grow out so I can start bunning again. You can adjust the size of the bun according to how many socks you use or the thickness of the socks you use.

    QUESTION: I heard or read somewhere that brushing is not good for your curls. Anybody else heard that??
