Spotlight on: The Ballerina Bun
There’s a grace and poise ballet dancers gain that is timelessly beautiful (and let’s face it, enviable). Long, lean muscles and perfect posture are just some of the traits that come with the territory, but there’s also an air of effortless beauty that these dancers wear so well: the ballerina bun.
Utterly irresistible, the ballerina bun is ideal for creating the illusion of a longer neck. And it’s not just a one-trick pony either. Hassle-free rather than sumptuous, the bun can be created in endless variations – a modern twist or daring accent can transform something classic into a reemerged influential hair trend – that’s the beauty of it. And yet they all manage to look wholly chic in their renditions.
Admittedly, this won’t help you pirouette or plié, but throwing your hair up will make you appear inches taller and a tad more graceful, whether or not you’ve ever set foot at the barre.
