Want to achieve that elegant ballerina bun without the struggle? Create a smooth style in 3 easy steps.

First, comb your hair completely through, we like Ouidad double detangler comb. Apply a small amount of serum to your hands, for thin fine hair, use about a dime size, for thick, texture hair use about a quarter sized amount. We love It’s a 10’s Miracle Styling Serum.

Secondly pull all of your hair back into a pony tail at your desired height, secure with an elastic. Brush back your hair along your scalp to prevent any bumps. Twist the hair around the base of the elastic to create a swirl like pattern, secure with an additional elastic for thick hair, or bobby pins for thinner hair.

Finish off your look by gently applying hair spray along the crown of your forehead, nape of your neck, and around the bun.  An excellent frizz fighting formula is Sebastians’ Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray. Run your hands along your scalp to evenly spread the product and then you’re ready to rock this sleek ‘do.

This is one of our favorite looks right now, and for some pretty awesome reasons! It's classy, it's quick, and the best part about it, you can wear this style with almost anything! Shall we get started! Let's go...

First, you'll want to use a 1-inch curling iron to curl all of your hair under. This definitely does not need to be perfect, so this is a pretty fairly quick step #1.

Next, flip your hair (back and forth) and gather all of your hair into a nice, high ponytail, brushing and smoothing your hair to rid any bumps and lumps

Now with that smoothing brush, back comb and slightly tease your hair in the ponytail for a more voluminous bun look.

Now onto the bun!

Twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create your bun shape. This is an easy step, think spiral.

Now, make sure this look stays with bobby pins securing the cute bun to your head

Spray with some finishing spray and smooth down any fly-aways.

When will you try this classy, ballerina-esque look?
