How to Do a Braided Ballerina Bun — The Cool-Girl WayAugust 06, 2020
Some things never go out of style — like red lipstick, winged liner and the iconic ballerina bun. For most of us, our ballerina dreams ended long before we got to pointe, but the aesthetic is forever in our hearts (looking at you Essie Gel Couture Ballet Nudes). With that in mind, we’ve created the ultra-nostalgic braided ballerina bun tutorial ahead, which you can dress up with hair accessories or rock on its own for a classic look.
What You’ll Need:
STEP 1: Create Your SectionsSection off a two-inch piece of hair from the front of your head. Pull the rest of your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band.
STEP 2: Begin the Braid
Pull a 1/2-inch piece of hair from the front side and split into two separate pieces. Pull a 1/4-inch section out of the ponytail and start braiding with the other two pieces of hair.
