How to Do a Ballerina Bun

How to Do a Ballerina Bun

I never got into the sock bun trend because they just look too perfect. I prefer a more classic (but kinda messy) bun. I do my hair like this for my ballet classes, so I don't have to worry about hair flying all over the place. But I also like the bun for whenever I'm having a lazy hair day.

All you need is a ponytail holder and some bobby pins. I have several different sizes here. You can use any size, but I think the bigger ones or the U-shaped ones work best for buns.

First, put your hair in a ponytail—however high you want your bun to be. I usually like a higher bun. Sleeping pug optional.

Next, wrap your hair into a swirly bun shape.

Now, get out your bobby pins. With one hand, hold your bun in place while you use the bobby pin to poke through some hair from your bun. Then turn the pin back toward your head to secure it under your ponytail holder.

Go around your bun until all hair is secure. I usually use about 5-6 total bobby pins for my buns, and they are very secure.

And that's it—you now have a classic ballerina bun! You can see how the bobby pins are securing the bun to my head. If you want a messier bun, you can pull out a few pieces. For a neater bun, just use more bobby pins to secure any stray hairs.

This is a great way to secure your hair when you're working out, but it's also a great weekend look.

What's your favorite easy hairstyle? Are you a fan of the classic bun?
