How To Make a Ballerina Bun - Step by Step

I learned how to make a Ballerina Bun for my daughter's dance recital. She received many compliments. Here is how I made it. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Things you'll need

Untangle hair. (Dirty hair is easier to work with - so don't wash hair before styling!)

Using gel, slick hair back and make a pony tail.

Divide pony tail in three equal parts.

Roll middle part up using a marker.

With marker still in place, secure loop with bobby pins and then gently remove marker. Repeat with other two parts of hair, rolling one to the left and the other to the right.

Close gaps between parts with bobby pins. Put some hair spray all over. If it's for a dance recital, put on a hair net that matches the hair color and secure with bobby pins (you can find hair nets at Sally's).
