I have received a few comments that you can’t really see how to begin the ballerina bun (sorry!), so here is a quick 12 second clip showing you how to wrap your hair around the hair donut & create the first flip. 12 seconds glory. Ready? Go.
DIY-tip: If you want to style and don’t have a hair donut, you can use a sock! Follow the steps below:
– Take a long dress sock (steal from father, brother, husband or boyfriend) and cut off the toe
– Now, roll the sock outwards from the ankle end to the toe end, creating a doughnut shape
– Ideally you won’t see the sock but, just in case, use one in a similar shade to your hair color
PRO-tip: If you have mastered the ballerina bun then spice it up by leaving on piece of hair from the ponytail out of the hair donut / sock. Continue creating your ballerina bun and when you are done, braid that one piece and circle it around the bun. Pin in place! Voila!
