Practice makes perfect — especially when it comes to the ballerina bun recently worn by celebrities such as Alicia Vikander, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rita Ora. Unlike other varieties — the topknot, chignon and looped knot — a ballerina bun’s structure is always sleek, with placement right below the crown of the head.
Check out our video for step-by-step instructions on how to exude the grace and charm of a dancer with a simple updo.
Here’s how to get the hairstyle: Fasten a ponytail at the crown. Braid hair (tip: Those with thin strands should back-comb before braiding). Take the plait and wrap it in a clockwise motion around the base of the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins. P.S. Accessories like jeweled bobbies, barrettes and clips add a special sparkle for the holidays!
