Having been a dancer for all of those years really pulled off in so many ways. I learned how to apply false eyelashes by the age of 10, how to keep leotards from riding up your bum and how to get the PERFECT large and round bun.
When this finally became a thing, I was already years ahead of the game. And now you get my nuggets of wisdom:
You will only need bobby pins for this look! Do not worry if your hair is thick, my hair is extremely thick and I never use a hair tie or clips.
Before I tell you the steps I want to give everyone a tip to be able to tell where the bun should be placed:
Follow the line of your cheekbones with your hands, gathering the hair as you go, until you have made a pony tail. This will be high or low, depending on your bone structure. The key is to follow the line of your cheek bones, this is where your bun should be placed for the most flattering symmetry of your face.
If you wish to keep up with the trends, you are more the welcome to do the High Bun-whatever you prefer!
Once you have the placement sorted out, simply start to twist the hair and wrap into a circle, making the bun. I usually tuck any loose strands as I go and tuck the hair into the sides so that it is tight and will not budge as I pin. Using bobby pins, place at the base of the bun and pin in at an angle. This is to grab the hair from the bun itself and connect it with the root of the hair, at the scalp.
And there you go!
WITH THESE LOOKS YOU WILL BE ROLLING INTO WORK LOOKING PRETTY PUT TOGETHER, YOU’LL HAVE EVERYONE PEANUT-BUTTER-AND-JEALOUS!
