Cool Girl Ballerina Bun



We all love a good ballerina bun.  And with the help of Byrdie, our favorite hair guru Jen Atkin shows us an easy way to achieve just that.

  1. Start with dry hair. Beginning with freshly-washed hair will leave you with a sleeker, more polished look, while second-day hair will give a more textured finish.
  2. Next, put your hair in a ponytail and smooth any bumps with a brush (Atkin used a natural boar bristle brush ($120) by Mason Pearson).
  3. After your ponytail is secured, brush it out. If your hair is prone to frizziness, you can add a smoothing serum, like Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($38), to your strands.
  4. Pull the ends of your hair through a bun-making hair tool (Atkin used ‘The Wrap Up’ Hair Styling Sponge ($12) by Sarah Potempa).
  5. Roll the hair tool towards your head, all the way to the base of the ponytail.
  6. Twist the hair tool in a circle so the ends touch (some tools may require you to tie or clasp the ends together).
  7. Make sure all the stray hairs are tucked into the bun, then use French hairpins to secure the bun in place.
  8. And there you have it—a chic, modern update on your classic ballerina bun!
