The secret to the perfect bun: an odd sock!
Oversized buns have become something of a fashion must-have lately, with stars rocking the high chignon frequently in recent months.

This hairdo was first perfected by Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw but it can easily be recreated at home, with the help of an odd sock.

Firstly grab a clean sock, preferably in a natural shade not too far from the hair colour.

Cut the toes off to make it the fabric into a tube and then roll it up into a sock donut shape.

Wrap the sock tube around a high ponytail and then begin wrapping sections of hair around the tube, carefully tucking them through the underside of the sock.

Finally all you need to do is to secure the structure with a second hair band and then use a few hair pins to hold it all in place and create fashion-forward hair and a function for odd socks.
