Materials: 1 sock (preferably the color of your hair), scissors, and bobbi pins

Step 3: Roll the sock doughnut (along with your hair) down the ponytail until you get to the base. Use the same technique you used in the first step to roll up the sock (flip the bottom side of the doughnut upward from the inside out) and as you continue tuck in loose strands. At the base, fill in gaps by spreading out the hair.
