How-to Hair: The relaxed ballet bun.


this super easy bun is my all-time favourite hair style :) it’s oh so quick to do (just twist & pin) and i find it lasts all day without even the merest lick of hairspray! since my hair is silly thick (i was asked recently if i go through shampoo abnormally quickly because i have so much hair!) i don’t need to backcomb to build volume, but those of you with lighter locks may want to :) 
here’s how to do it:
1. gather up all of your hair, and twist it right to the end with the hair pointing upwards. don’t pull too tight, as you’re aiming for a soft and relaxed look.
2/3. wrap the hair round on itself in the same direction you were twisting (i.e wrap to the left if you were twisting in an anti-clockwise direction)
4. pin the bun in place using bobby pins.
5. pull out little wisps of hair around your face to soften the look of the bun. 
and that’s it! easy as pie!
