How to make a perfect ballet bun



YOU WILL NEED

  • Hairbrush

  • Long handled comb

  • Hair elastic

  • Hairspray

  • Hair gel

  • Hair net

  • Hair pins

  • Bobby pins

METHOD




Brush all the hair towards the centre back of the head. Gather the hair into a tight ponytail and secure with an elastic band, ensuring that there are no bumps. To stop frizzy and fly-away hairs, apply a small amount of gel evenly from the roots to the ends of the hair, with your fingers or with the comb. If you have very curly, thick or fine hair may need to apply hair gel and/or spray before securing into a ponytail. If you have fringe make sure you also brush it back off the face and secure with gel and spray.




To make the bun shape, hold the ponytail at the end and twist it firmly until it is all twisted into a rope. You may need to add spray or gel at this pointe in the process if you have layered hair. Then coil the ponytail into a flat circle around the hair elastic, continuing the coil in the same direction as the twist in the ponytail. This will stop the ponytail unravelling. Tuck the ends of the ponytail under the bun. Then place 3-4 hairpins around the bun to secure it, without taking your hands off the bun. Next, place a hairnet over the bun. At this stage, you can make any adjustments to the shape of the bun. A finished bun should be round and even in shape, and sit smoothly and as flat as possible against the head.


HOW TO SECURE A BUN USING HAIRPINS




Hold the pin at the closed end, with the prongs facing the centre of the coil. Insert the prongs a little way into the edge of the bun, catching a small amount of the bun edge. Then turn the prongs in and back outwards to catch some of the hair outside the bun. Lastly, turn the prongs inwards again and push into the centre of the coil. Insert as many pins as you need to all around the edges of the bun, until it feels secure. Loose hairs can be gelled or sprayed to help them stay put.


P.S - An ideal ballet bun sits at the centre (crown) of the head and is not visible from the front view.
