As much as I love sock buns for their magical volumizing and man-baffling abilities, when they’re tucked in a little too perfectly, they tend to look like … well … a sock on your head. That’s why I’m loving Sea of Shoes fashion blogger Jane Aldridge’s messier take on the style. By curling random sections of her hair first, leaving the bun itself a bit undone, and not pulling back all of her hair, she created a sock bun that’s still big and dramatic, but not overly precious (or overly sock-y, for that matter). Bravo! [Sea of Shoes]

I don’t have long enough hair to try it out, but it looks super simple to execute for a bun inspired by a concept that’s kind of hard to grasp. Nerdiest bun ever! See the full tutorial after the jump. [The Beauty Department] Keep reading »
