I never imagined I might be
doing a hair tutorial on this blog,
but after having my e-mail and Facebook inbox
flooded with questions about how I pull off this hair style,
I decided the most convenient way to tell
you would be to address it in a post.
The thing you need to know is that
my hair pretty much has the consistency of straw...
I bend it and it stays....literally...
so if your hair is amazingly silky and straight,
this particular version might not actually work for you.

Step 1: Start with not-so-clean hair...hehe...
This is usually a three-days-after-hair-wash-do for me...
so now you know that dirty little secret.
My hair is just too thick and curly to contain otherwise.
Step 2: Pull your hair up into a (really) high ponytail.
If you don't get it high enough, it'll just look like any
other bun on the back of your head.
The point of a ballet bun is for it to be on top of your head.
Step 3: Split your ponytail in half, left and right.
Step 4: Twist the right section just a little and twirl it down
and around to the top to form the bottom of your bun. Pin.
Step 5: Twist the left section and up and around
to the bottom to form top of bun. Pin.
Step 6: Add more pins to secure. Done.
