When you go to your ballet classes, you will obviously need your hair nicely scraped back and away from your face. Most ballet schools insist that your hair is tied up, usually in a bun.
When you try to do your first bun, it's really tricky. However, the more you do, the easier it gets. Here is a 'recipe,' on how to tie your hair up in a bun.
You Will Need:
1) A hairnet that is the same colour as your hair. It should not be visable once in your hair. Also make sure that it has no holes.
2) About 10 - 15 bobby pins.
3) A hairband the colour of your hair.
5) Scrunchie the same colour as your leotard
1) Tie your hair into a pony tail in the middle of your head. Make sure that it is tight and secure. However, you don't want it so tight that it hurts.
2) Take the hair and twirl it around its self. Then, wrap it around the pony tail base. (The the pony is attached to the head.)
3) Once in this position, you can put the bun net on. You may need to twist the net around a few times to make it tighter.
4) Place bobby pins into the bun, all the way around. Leave a few over to secure any loose pieces of hair that didn't make it into the bun.
5) Spray with hairspray. And tie scrunchie around it.
So that's how you do a simple ballet bun! Of course, there are thousands of other types of buns that you can do, but that's the one most ballet dancers use. It's easy and very effective.
At the moment, I have got quite short hair. When I tie it into a pony, it would only be about two inches long. That doesn't stop me from putting it in a bun, though.
It's so easy, you can even do it with really short hair.
