A fancy twist on a bun (literally!)
Today's hair tutorial, the "hot cross bun" features woven criss cross twists accenting a standard ballet bun (or donut bun / sock bun.) The twisted lattice design adds an elegant touch.
This updo hairstyle would be perfect for dance, ballet, figure skating and other sports. But, could also be worn for more formal occasions such as the prom, homecoming, church, concerts, recitals, communions, weddings, flower girls, etc. I think this style also has a princess medieval look to it and would be fabulous to wear to a renaissance faire or play!
This hairdo is sort of a spin off of the star bun we posted last week and was actually filmed the same day. Love it when one hairstyle idea turns into another... and another!
- 2 hair elastics or hair ties
