Ballerina Buns

With the recent announcement of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestants, we’ve found ourselves thinking increasingly about the perfect dance hair-do’s and in doing so have reignited our love of the staple bun.

Simple, elegant and perfectly practical, the bun is one of the easiest styles to achieve and can be dressed up or down as much as you like. Ideal for days when your hair just won’t behave, for days when you need all hair sweeping chicly out of your face and even glamming it up for the races or weddings.

One of our favourite elements of the humble bun is that it’s so easy to elevate from simple to spectacular. To give your bun a touch of ‘je ne sais quoi’, why not incorporate a braid down one side. This can be as textured or neat as you like to go with your personal style.

Don’t forget to tell us all about your favourite bun styles on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and in the meantime, get plenty of hairspiration over on our Pinterest page.
