Knot Your Ballerina Bun

“This is the bun of that cool girl who just happened to easily twist her hair up and off of her face,” Rizzieri said. “It has natural pieces poking out so it’s not too perfect. It’s definitely graphic, different, but simple looking to match the details of the clothes, but not take away from the collection.”

Step 1: Spritz hair with Pure Abundance™ Style Prep™ to give volume and thickness in preparation for the hair to hold the finished style.

Step 2: Blow dry hair straight to help expand the volume while also creating sleekness; add a light mist of Brilliant™ Spray-On Shine for a touch of sheen.

Step 3: Create a solid center part before pulling hair tightly back into a ponytail that rests just above the nape of the neck, but below the center of the head; firmly secure with a bungee cord elastic.

Step 4: Taking two sections from the ponytail begin to strongly knot the sections tightly doing this continuously until the end of the ponytail.

Step 5: Coil the knotted sections up into the base of the ponytail letting random pieces poke out for a sculptured look and added detail. Secure the knotted bun with pins until it is tight to the head.

Step 6: Apply Air Control™ Hair Spray onto a small bristled brush and gently use on the top of the head toward the bun to smooth flyaways.
