HAIR TUTORIAL: French Braid Sock Bun


Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a cute, everyday hair tutorial with you that is a twist on your typical sock bun. This look incorporates a french braid into both the back of the head and the bun itself which gives it a more elevated look. The front is twisted into a retro-style fringe which brings the casual look together. Check out the look below!


PRODUCTS MENTIONED:


Here is the final look:


From the back you can really see how french braid lays against the head and up into the bun.


I'm so excited to share that I'll be partnering with Pantene over the next year to bring lots of hair videos to you so I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and let me know what hair tutorial you'd like to see next! 

Readers, have you tried a sock bun? What is your way of elevating a simple look? Let me know in the comments!

  6. When people can do french braids in their own hair - wow! For some reason doing one at the back of my head seems to be so hard for me haha this look looks great though!! Very unique! :)

    (Also, congrats on your Pantene partnership!!)

    You seem to do the hair so effortlessly, but I'm pretty I'll get a mess if I do it myself! : p
    Btw, what did you use for your lips in this tutorial?

  15. OMG, I've seen this hairstyle at the Birchbox event during NY's Fashion Night Out a couple of years ago, and I've always wonder how it was done. Thanks, Jen! Would you be able to do more retro hairstyles and makeup tutorials? Much appreciated!
