Trends: Messy Ballerina Bun
Lately everybody has been rocking that high-fashion super-model top-of-the-head bun. It is a chic, understated & elegant look that is effortless yet put-together simultaneously. The best part about this trendy look? It takes about 2 minutes, and is my favorite way to wear my hair on a bad hair day, or on a day where my hair isn't freshly washed (like on the way to the supermarket to pick up soup & advil after a night of partying).
This style will look differently depending on your hair type. I have thin, medium length hair. So my hair looks somewhat slicked back and my bun is pretty tiny. But if you have thicker hair, you will have a more voluminous look. If you have longer hair, your bun will be bigger. You can also tug hair around the secured band to loosen up your hair and use bobby pins to push up your hair, making a bump or just bigger hairline in general.
Here is how I make my messy ballerina bun, in less than 2 minutes:
Also, I will be announcing the winner of the Xmas give away shortly, the Christmas weekend kept me busy, so I apologize to anyone who is on the edge of their seats waiting to hear about the contest :)
