The ballerina bun has had a much needed upgrade, or should we say update – from uptight to laid back and we're loving it!
After years of straight up, serious bun business, the ballerina 'chignon' is taking it easy. With this much needed style revamp, a bun can be as funky or as wild as you like.
How so? Firstly decide how high it will sit. Then form a pony tail and twist in the usual bun-style. Now get creative! Depending on how tight or loose you wound the tail around, and on your original hair length you can achieve any manner of different laid back looks with this updo. Try to model the knot large and low or go for taller, tighter and leaner – both look sexy and give the old school demure ballerina style a run for its money.
