I saw this style in a magazine earlier this year and I thought, 'umm...no, not for me'. But since I am wanting to experiment on more things now when it comes to fashion so I can share it with you guys, since it was raining today (so if I left my hair down it would be a disaster) and since I didn't get a chance to shower before heading to the grocery store (let's face it...when you're shopping with a two and a half year old, it's better to get there before 9 a.m. so as to have the store as empty as possible=no time for shower), today I decided to give it a try. And it was...so adorable!! I do not consider myself someone who generally looks good with their hair up. But this was chic and flattering, and it does seem that when your hair is up, the more volume on top there is, the more flattering.
Sky-high ballerina bun:
Step one: Pull hair up into a high ponytail, keeping sides and underneath smooth
Step two: loosely wrap hair around ponytail and loosely secure with another hair elastic
Step three: pin any ends sticking out underneath bun and use bobby pins to anchor bun to head...your bun should be lose but secure
Example of piece sticking out that you would need to pin under
Your chic new hair-do!!
