Ballerina Bun

With the success of Black Swan in theatres and at awards shows, ballerina-inspired style has shown up everywhere. In addition to the classic ballet flat and tutu pink nail polish, buns have made a big comeback – take a look below...
This is a quick and easy style, which is great if you’re like me and don’t have a lot of time in the morning. But, it also looks effortless and chic, allowing your face to be the focus.

Unlike a real ballerina, you want to keep it loose – tease the crown a little bit to add some volume on top, pull some pieces out and secure the rest high on your head with bobby pins that match the color of your hair. You don’t want it looking too slicked back or too perfect. I also like to add a drop earring, as Sienna Miller did above, for some extra drama.
