Step 01: Start by creating a middle parting for your hair. Next, leave two-inch sections on both sides and secure the rest of your hair in a sky-high ponytail with a thin clear elastic.

Step 02: Now, take about half an inch from the two-inch section at the front and split into two. Take another tiny section from your ponytail and start braiding.

Step 03: Continue adding more sections of hair from the ponytail, like you would to create a classic French braid.

Step 04: Next, wrap the braid you just created around the base of the ponytail to make a bun. Secure it in place with the help of bobby pins.

Pro tip: Gently tug on the bun to give it a fuller appearance.

And there you have it… your quick, simple and super stylish ballerina bun is ready in less than 10 minutes. Super simple. wasn’t it?
