DIY Ballerina Bun

Ballerina buns take little practice to perfect and are a great way to elegantly put your hair up.

1.First, flip your hair over and gather it into a high ponytail, securing with an elastic or ponytail holder.

2.Using a smoothing brush, lightly tease your hair. Teasing will help the bun look more voluminous.

3.Next, twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create your bun shape.

4.Insert bobby pins along the base of the bun, securing it to your head. Shake your head from side to side to make sure the bun is secure.

5.Finish by spraying all over with a firm holding hairspray and smooth down flyaways.
