How to Make a Ballet Bun :)

1.  Brush hair until it is smooth and tangle free. Gather all hair into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Height is up to you.


2. Twist the ponytail tightly, and coil it around the elastic, securing with bobby/hair pins. Tuck the end of the ponytail under the rest of the bun. Be sure to use enough pins!


3.  Wrap a hairnet over the bun. Secure with some more bobby/hair pins, if needed.


4. Mist with hairspary, if needed.


5. For an Emerald ballet bun - add a touch of green!
