Ever since I started dancing, I would need to put my hair into a bun. As a child my mom would have to do it for me but of course, now it’s a part of my everyday routine and I have learned to do it in multiple styles. Most of dancers put their hair up for class and rehearsals to not have their hair in their face and really focus on the work.
Here I’m going to share with you, two of my favorite hairstyles for rehearsals step-by- step.
Let’s get started!
For every hairstyle you’ll need an elastic, U-shaped pins, bobby-pins, a brush and a comb.
We’ll begin with the classic bun.
- I like to untangle my hair at first.
- Then I do a side-part or a middle-part and a low ponytail.
- I make sure I don’t have any bumps and secure the ponytail with an elastic.
- Then I twist the ponytail into a rope and wrap the hair around the pony holder. The closer the better.
- Then I use 8 U-shaped pins to secure everything. I like to place them « 12 » o’clock position.
This hairstyle is very easy and quick to make, plus it always looks nice.
The braided bun looks very romantic and elegant. When I have more time in the mornings I like to do this hairstyle.
First, you need to braid your hair into a Dutch braid, which is a French braid reversed.
- You can start your braid on the top of your head by parting out the section that is closer to your forehead. You need to separate your hair into three equal sections. The secret of a Dutch braid is to keep this sections equal as you as you can while you braid.
- Take the left section and pass it under the middle one.
- Then take the right section and pass it under the middle one.
- Now we’ll keep repeating that and adding hair into the braid. Pass the left section under the middle one and combine it with a section of free hair on the left side.
- Do the same with the right side, always passing it under the middle section.
- Keep on doing that until the nape of your head.
- Finish the braid like a regular braid and secure it with an elastic.
- Take the remain of the hair and from the end of it roll it under the nape of your head
- Secure it with U-shaped pins.
There you have a pretty bun for your training 🙂
