One of the hottest catwalk up-do’s this season has to be the ballerina bun which can be altered and changed to suit your style. This hair trend works well for both day and night and will add a cool and on-trend edge to any outfit.

Wearing your hair up in a bun helps to show off your bone structure, whilst drawing attention to your make-up look. If you are the type of girl that likes to pile up your hair up and leave it, this trend is perfect as it requires minimal re-working throughout the day.

Models at the Christopher Kane, Phillip Lim and the Peter Pilotto catwalk show certainly jumped on board the bun trend this season with an array of styles from low and loose, to high and elegant, including some with extravagant volume.

Here are two ways to style your hair into a bun this season:

The Classic Ballerina Look

The classic Ballerina bun requires you to take inspiration from the professional ballet girls, as this style looks very well groomed. To achieve this look it’s best to scrape the hair back to the middle of the head and twist, whilst gripping it down until you get the right effect. Making the bun either too low or too high could be uncomfortable if you have particularly long hair, so make sure your bun is placed in the middle of your head.

The Evening Look

If you’re looking for an evening look, why not prep your hair using some volumising spray before you create a centre parting, tie your hair in a low ponytail and pin into a loose chignon. If your bun is looking too neat, loosen sections of your hair by pulling them slightly at the roots. If you’re hair isn’t thick enough to create this simple style, why not invest in one of the Hershesons hair pieces which will allow you to re-create the bun look as well as many other on-trend styles this season.
