You don't need to know how to dance ballet to wear this bun. All you need is a hair tie and some bobby pins and you'll look like a prima ballerina!

After three different types of braids, we end this month's Back-to-School Beauty special with a classic ballerina bun. Watch the video to see Coleen do the hairstyle on herself.

  1. Gather your hair into a high ponytail and tie with a hair elastic. Smooth any flyaways by using a fine-toothed comb.
  2. Twist your hair around the base of your ponytail creating a bun. Flatten out your hair to create a bigger bun. Secure your hair with bobby pins under the bun.

Option: Wear a pretty headband to keep stray hair away from your face. Browse the slideshow below for hair accessories you can use.
