Diy donut/sock bun

I've been a fan of top knots this year (like the one in Eleanor's blog) but this donut bun stays longer so, I switched to donut buns instead.
Este año, he estado un poco obsesionada con los moños altos (como el del blog de Eleanor) pero los de donut duran muchísimo más, así que son mi nueva obsesión.

I always thought this was a very popular DIY, but I keep seeing those donuts to make hair-buns in stores which made me think that maybe not everyone knows you can actually make it yourself. And all you need is two socks!
Siempre he pensado que éste era un tutorial muy común, pero no dejo de ver los donuts para hacer estos moños en las tiendas, así que supongo que no todo el mundo sabe que lo puedes hacer en casa. ¡Y sólo necesitas dos calcetines!

Start off by cutting the end where the toes go.
Empieza por cortar la parte donde van los dedos.

Insert one sock inside of the other one and start rolling both socks at a time creating your donut.
Mete un calcetín dentro del otro y empieza a enrollar los dos a la vez.

For this hairstyle you will need:
Para el peinado necesitas:
  • Your donut (obviously)
    Tu donut (obvio)
  • Two hair elastics
    Dos coleteros
  • Some bobby pins (I usually use one. But the more, the merrier)
    Horquillas (normalmente utilizo una, pero cuantas más mejor)
Put your hair in a high ponytail.
Pass your hair through the donut hole. 
Cover the donut with your hair. 
Place the other hair elastic underneath the donut, making the hair stay covering it. 
Wrap your remaining hair around the bun and secure with bobby pins. You can also braid it before. I added a little bun wrap to make it cuter.

Hazte una coleta.
Pasa el pero por el agujero del donut.
Cubre el donut con el pelo.
Sujeta el pelo con el otro coletero para mantener el donut cubierto.
Enrolla el pelo restante alrededor del moño y sujétalo con horquillas. También puedes hacer una trenza antes de enrollarlo. Yo he añadido un coletero para moños para hacerlo más mono.

I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know in the comments if you did and thanks for reading!
