- Hair brush
- Hairspray or gel
- Bobby pins or hair pins
- Hair net (same color as dancer's hair)
I found some helpful pictures from the Gulfshore Ballet website, which I'll add to this tutorial. Here we go!
Step one: Brush hair back into a ponytail. Use gel or hairspray to tame wisps and strands of hair that are not long enough to reach the ponytail. The ponytail should be in the middle of the dancer's head (not too high, not too low). Secure the ponytail with an elastic.
You can find all of these pictures and instructions at http://www.gsballet.org/content/how-make-perfect-ballet-bun. This may take a while to master, but practice at home before classes begin in a couple of weeks!
