The Dutch Braided Side Bun
The Dutch side braided sock bun is a fun hairdo to try, which speaks volumes of your feminine touch and highlights your lovely hair color too.

Comb all your hair to one side, and make an invisible braid from the ear lobe mid way to the lower half end of the flowing hair. Secure the lower end with a band and form a hair loop as shown. Through this hair loop, pull in the remaining hair and secure with a band to form a low Dutch braided side bun. You can use your own innovations on this particular sock bun with braid too.
The Tube Sock Bun
An easiest way to do the tube sock bun without spending much time would be to use a doughnut hair accessory. Start by applying enough of mousse on the hair for the setting to happen, and then comb all the hair backwards into a high ponytail. When you culminate the hair onto the crown of the head, put all the hair through the doughnut and form a ponytail. Tease and back brush the flowing hair to form beach waves, and then wrap it around the doughnut accessory to form a tube sock bun.
Lace Bun For Short Hair
Six easy steps for you to wear sock bun for short hair, and this would be the lacey one this time. Start by applying a generous amount of hair mousse for the hair to set with. Now comb all the hair backwards and from the nape of the neck with your head bent towards your knees, form a braid. Stop midway and gather the hair that remains, and stand up straight. Tease the remainder hair downwards towards the end point of the last braided strand, and roll the hair into the braid, tucking it onto the crown of the head. Secure the lace sock bun with bobby pins and hairspray.
