Ballerina Hair Bun with a Twist

The ballerina bun is a hot hairstyle for the holiday season, and this chic twist on the sleek style makes it even more on pointe (pun intended).


Start this stylish updo by sectioning off the front of your hair. Leaving the sections that frame your face free, pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail and tease the pony. Next twist the hair around the base of the ponytail, like you would a normal ballerina bun and secure with a few bobby pins. Next, backcomb the free sections, and pull them back and around the base of the bun. Secure with a bobby pin. 'Tis the season for new takes on classic hairstyles!
