Cut the sock-bun donut on one side to create a long roll. Divide your hair from front to back and clip back the front section. Create a very high pony in front of your crown area by brushing all of your hair up toward the crown, gathering the hair, and securing it with a hair elastic.
Release the section of hair in front and add it to the hair at the back, combing it forward toward your face.
Take the cut sock bun, place it at the ends of the hair, and roll it toward the hairline.
Continue to roll the sock bun until it’s tight to the head, creating a curved shape front of the face. This is the front of your pompadour.
Once the pompadour is in the place you want it, secure it with a few bobby pins. Finish off the look with a firm-hold hairspray.
