Natural Hair Carnival: Breast Cancer Awareness Month: How to- sock bun on natural hair

This month's hair carnival is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Get ready to see styles with lots of pink in the linkies!

I wanted to braid the logo but we ended up with x's lol. We actually did several styles and was unhappy with a lot.

We finally settled on a simple bun with two cornrows along the hair line meeting in the back and finished off with heart beads (pink of course!) at the ends.

Sorry for the lighting of the pics. It doesnt show the pink accessories well.

For this style we did a sock bun.

Items needed:
Old sock or stockings
Ouchless pony tail holder
Rat tail comb for parting the cornrows at the hair line
Boar brush for smoothing
Hair accessories

I followed these instructions from HappyGirlHair and got this:

Here is also another cool way to do a sock bun that I havent tried yet from Mainly Braids For accessories we used a cute light pink flower clip on top and heart beads for the braids.

Hope you liked our style! Please check out the other blogger's hairstyles in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Peep our Breast Cancer Awareness nail design as well.

This looks so pretty! I love the sock bun. I haven't tried one yet on JJ's hair, I keep thinking it's not long enough, but maybe I'm wrong? I love the flower clip.

@Mama M thanks! You can def try just make sure you use a small kid sock if her hair is short. I forgot to mention, the size of the sock determines how big or small the bun will be.

This looks so cute! Gotta love all that pink! And I love that this can be worn as an everyday style, but it would be perfect for more dressy events, too. Great job!
