Start with a ponytail. You can add a part or go for the sophisticated slicked back look, depending on the occasion. Twist your ponytail around your fingers until it beings to coil. That's when you know it's time to start wrapping. As you continue to twist, wrap your ponytail around itself at the base. Before you tuck the tips, shape your bun by slightly adjusting the form. Use bobby pins to keep it secure. For a bigger ballerina bun, tease the ponytail before you pin it.
