How Do You Do a Good Ballet Bun?


The perfect ballet bun is a classic style that every dancer needs to master. It looks neat, polished and professional, and can be used in any type of dance performance.

Whether you’re performing a traditional ballet or something more contemporary, having a good bun is essential. It’s also important to remember that there are many different styles of buns, so it’s important to figure out which one works best for your hair type and face shape.

The first step in creating the perfect ballet bun is to brush your hair. This will help remove any knots or tangles and make it easier to style the bun.

Once your hair is brushed, section it off into two parts – the top and bottom sections. If you have long hair, you may need to divide it into three sections.

Once you have your sections separated, use an elastic band to secure the top portion of your hair in a ponytail. Make sure to use a band that is strong enough to hold your hair in place for the duration of the performance. After tying off the top portion of your hair, take the bottom section and twist it until you have reached the desired look.

Now that you have twisted your bottom section, use bobby pins and an elastic band to secure it around the base of your ponytail. Start by wrapping the elastic band around the base of your ponytail two or three times until it is tight enough. Then start using bobby pins around the circumference of your bun starting at one side and working around until all pieces are secured.

Once all pieces are secured in place spray some hairspray on top for added hold. This will help keep everything in place throughout long performances or practices.


Creating a good ballet bun takes practice but once you get the hang of it you’ll be able to create a professional looking style with ease.

Start by brushing out any knots or tangles before creating sections and then using an elastic band and bobby pins to secure them in place. Finally finish off with some hairspray for added hold throughout performances or practices. With some patience and practice anyone can achieve a perfect ballet bun!
