Carrie Bradshaw - Sex in the City bun

The weather down here has been hovering in the mid 90's for the last couple of months so a bun has been my go to hair style lately. 

Inspiration 


I should have probably took a better front picture (fail), but I was rushing to get to work.


Some tips to get the best results are:
Use a sock that is long and thick
Pick a sock that is as close to your hair color as possible (I used a black sock)
Hairspray for flyaways (optional)
Hair pins to keep layers in place or to pin it down a little for extra security (optional)


 To do this bun I watched this video

I also found another video on an easier way to do the bun here, but the results are a little different. The first video looks more like the Carrie Bradshaw Sex in the City bun.


What's your go to hair style for the summer?
