A Fancy "Ballerina Bun"
The Princess has worn this bun several times since we filmed the tutorial, and each time has received many compliments and lots of attention. I'm sure you will too! And, although this hairstyle looks quite intricate and difficult to create, it is actually very easy (which is always a plus.)
* 1 bun foundation, bun maker, hair donut, bun sock, or similar. (There are many varieties of these available.) We purchased ours at Sally Beauty Supply and I remember it being around $3-$4. I have also seen them at Walgreens and online at Amazon: Conair Bun Maker Set. For us, it was worth purchasing because we actually use it quite often. If you would rather not spend any money, you could always cut the toe out of a sock and roll it up to form the donut shape. I would recommend finding something similar to the color of your hair.
* 1 elastic or hair tie
* several bobby pins
* medium length hair (or longer)
* gel or pomade (optional)
* approx 10 minutes
Pinwheel Bun Tutorial:
(Be sure to watch the Princess and her Dad in a fun video ending on this one lol.)
This twisted pinwheel bun (or chignon) would be great for many occasions: Dance recitals, ballet, figure skating, gymnastics, Prom, Homecoming, sports, work, or school. Wouldn't this be a cute "Dance Moms" hairstyle? To see a very simplified version of a perfect ballet bun, click here: ballet bun
P.S. When you take the bun out, you will be left with waves (as shown below) which make a cute second day style. ;)
