New Year's 2011 Hair: Here's An Updo That Involves... A Sock? (VIDEO)

Written by Stylelist Blogger Network Member Kailani Andrade of Kailani's Korner:

I am always on the lookout for a new hairstyle that is fast and fashionable. I have long locks and I am known for always having my hair off my face in a ponytail or a messy bun.

But this holiday season I discovered what is known as the "sock bun." I have to admit, the first time I attempted the sock bun it was awful. It wasn't fast or easy, but with practice came perfection. I sported my new favorite hairdo to church on Christmas Eve and after being asked many times, "How did you make your bun so perfect?" I decided that I should share my secret with the world. Make sure to watch my tutorial above.
