You’ve seen it on all the celebrities, whether they’re on the red carpet or running errands on a typical day.

It’s a hair do that’s been around for a while, and not just because it’s simple, polished, and beautiful — the sock bun is perfect because you can wear it when you’re all dressed up, and also on those days you’re running late and you need a quick hair fix. Or even on bad hair days when it needs a lot of fix, for that matter.

And the best part? Underneath that classic, elegant bun is nothing other than your very own, trusty … sock!

That’s right.

I found an easy-to-follow sock bun tutorial on Beautylish. Click here to check it out.

Below you can see the sock bun on AnnaLynne McCord from CW’s 90210.

So girls, pick a sock, cut the toe, and start rollin’ — a perfectly rolled ballerina bun is all yours to effortlessly rock.
