Rainbow Bun - Dance Bun With Ribbon

Ballet Bun With Ribbon

Here's a cute and unique hairstyle variation on the standard Ballet Bun from the other day.

hairstyle for dance
I thought this "Rainbow Bun" would be a cute hairstyle for a dance competition or recital. I could also see it working for gymnastics or even a Renaissance Fair.

  6. hey, just to let you know i love your blog :) also, i'm from irealnd and i had no idea Paddy's Day was so big in the States! i love this hairstyles, would never have thought of doing the ribbon around the bun :L xx

  7. I LOVE this bun! I am 13 years old, and love your blog!

    I dance 4 times a week (not including rehersals or shows) and have trouble keeping my hair up. I use very large, thick plastic pins which work great, but on turns and jumps my buns fall out! I use a bun warmer as well, and that helps a lot, but even still I end up with hair in my mouth and eyes, ew! (a bun warmer is like a bun net, but thicker).

    It needs to stay up durning class, I I need to be able to do it on myself.

    Any tips?

  8. I read these and see the pictures and think the hairstyles are adorable but man oh man I just do not have the patience or time for this. :)
