our 2013 hairstyle prediction blog we thought we’d give you a little
hand in creating one of our favourite hairstyles from the prediction so
we’re introducing the ballerina hair bun hair tutorial to you all!
look is really easy to recreate and can be worn a little messy or super
sleek. If you have little time on your hands then a messy ballerina bun
is perfect, if you’re going out but want to keep you hair out of the
way, a super sleek ballerina bun will ooze sophistication. So it all
depends on how you feel about how you want to rock you ballerina bun!
the difference between a ballerina bun and a top knot kind of bun? The
ballerina bun is worn much lower. This can either be at the nape of your
neck or the middle of your head or slightly at the top of your head so
they are a little high... They are just never directly on TOP of your
head. That is basically it my pretties!
all of your hair through before styling. If you’re wanting to create a
sleek bun be sure to straighten your hair beforehand. If you’re going
for the messy look it’s generally best to smooth over the top quickly
with some straighteners too; this is just to try and keep frizziness at
once your hair is prepped it's time to pull it all back into a ponytail
and securing this either at the nape of your neck or in the middle of
your head with a hair band. This will be the base of your bun!
how you want your bun (messy or sleek) there are different techniques
to each style. For the messy style you can simply twist your ponytail
and wrap it around your bun. Securing it in place with a hair band and
some bobby pins. For the sleeker look you can make use out of a donut
and place your ponytail through it, fanning out your hair to cover the
donut, securing in place with a hair band and using the remaining hair
to cover the hair band by pinning this around the base of the bun.
If you don’t have a donut you can use a an old sock! Yup, that’s right!
Cut the toes off, roll up and voila! You have a donut for free :)
quickly mess up your bun a little, shake your head! Not to vigorously
of course, just enough to let hair naturally fall out of place.
