Can anyone give me advice on how to achieve perfect results in doing a ballet bun?
My young daughter has an audition coming up and my hairdressing skills are atrocious. There must be a knack to it as I see other kids with sleek, elaborate styles, not a hair out of place. I'm getting very stressed already thinking about it, pathetic I know :o

This is the way I do it and they stay in nice and tight no matter how many pirouettes are turned!
Put the hair into a high ponytail and fix with an elastic. Hold the ponytail and twist until it's really tight. Now start to wind it around into the bun and using bun pins, fix to the scalp about four times. Cover with a bun hairnet (I use two nets as my daughter's hair is long and very thick) and fix more bun pins. I usually use about 12 pins. If the hair is really difficult to manager damp it first or use hair gel or spray with hairspray (I do this for performances)

Click on "search" in the upper right-hand part of the screen.

For "Search Words:" type "hair" and "bun"

For "Search Forum" select "Students' Questions and Experiences"

I tried this and a number of old threads on this topic came up that could be of use to you.

Here's a hint that you might not come across: instead of pointing the hairpins/bobby pins straight in toward the center, angle them slightly, crossing one over the adjacent one (by 2's). This anchors the pins better.
