Got two left feet? Good news: you don’t need to know how to do a pirouette to rock a ballerina bun.
What you’ll need
A lot of little girls (and even big girls!) dream of becoming a ballerina. Twirling across a stage in a frothy tutu just seems like so much fun…until you realized the amount of work dancers have to put through so they can be the best.
How to create the perfect Ballerina Bun
Start with clean hair.
Prep with serum
Comb your hair.
Tie it up.
HAIR HACK: Where you put your ponytail matters. A ballerina bun should ideally be at the crown of your head—you should be able to see a glimpse of it when you’re looking at a mirror straight on.
Do the twist.
Make the bun.
Lock it in.
HAIR HACK: Think the pulled-back look is too severe? Soften the style by pulling a few wispy locks of hair around your face.
Wear it proud.
