How To: the Ballerina Bun

The bun has made a huge comeback in the last few years. But it’s not about perfection, this season we want a messy bun that has a stylish, yet effortless look. Here’s how to easily achieve the look.

1 Prep your hair with dry shampoo to get the right structure and texture, then tease the hair at the top of your head with your fingers and finish by finger-combing your hair and pulling it back to a high ponytail. Place it as high as you are comfortable with.






Use a bobby pin to fix your pulled back hair slightly and get it a little neater, without losing the messy feel. Next twine and turn your hair in the ponytail.





Roll the twined ponytail into a bun. Use your thumb to roll the hair around and then pull it out slowly and carefully not to ruin the round shape you have created.






Lastly pull out a strand of hair and wrap it around the bun and then secure the bun with as many thin bobby pins you feel your hair needs.



There you have it! Your perfectly chic ballerina bun!
