My first tutorial! I know that Instagram has lots of pictures on this (and the web), but anyway, I'm going to leave my version of the tutorial up here on my blog.
I decided to do this tutorial because I see a lot of scrunchies out there in accessory shops going at SGD$5, and it's really a rip-off if you can use the things you already have in the comfort of your own home. Why spend the money when you don't really need it? (This does NOT apply to me buying new clothes. HAHAHA)
PS. Excuse my shades and looks. It was another lazy day. Oh, and my camera was having a PMS day.
First off! What you will need:
Also, I suggest picking a sock color that's relatively close to that of your hair's, so it won't be too obvious if it shows.
After step 3, your hair should look something like this:
As you can see, the sock already adds extra height to the ponytail. If you don't like the height/width of your sock around your ponytail, change it because this is THE thing that gives your bun the structure it needs.
Ok. I know I didn't show you what I did in Step 5, but basically, I coated the entire sock with my hair by spreading my hair around the sock. The main thing you have to note is that there are no openings to show your sock underneath!
Then clip it or shove it in the rubber band, whichever works for you! Personally, I like to use the clip.
My outfit for the tutorial:
Bart Simpson Denim Outerwear from BUTTEREDGUN
Round Sunglasses from ASOS
Spaghetti Strap from Forever 21
Hope all of you enjoyed this tutorial! I really love this bun because it really adds to the whole indie, grunge, rock-chic look I always wear!
Till next time.
