I love this bun and it's VERY in right now! I don't use a sock though. I put my hair in a loose high ponytail and twist the hair loosely around. I pull the bun to loosen it a bit and voila! Perfect idea for Dorie's hairstyle!
Separate the top half of the crown and section off the bottom into a ponytail. Next waterfall the top braid and section that off. Then tease the bottom half putting it into a low ponytail. Last combine the braid into the ponytail.
A perfect deep side part, a great way to pin bangs out of face. I use this all the time at vocal recitals and competitions when I know my audience and or judges will be picky about seeing my eyes and face. Looks very classic!
