What You Need:
Step 1 - Ponytail
It's as simple as it sounds. Secure the hair into a ponytail.
Step 2 - Twist and Twist
Take the ponytail and twist the hair clockwise.
Now, as you're twisting the hair, twist it again into a bun shape around the ponytail. You want to stay in a clockwise direction.
Step 3 - Pin
Secure the bun with as several bobby pins.
That's it! Quick and simple.
* Dirty hair stays in place better. We don't worry about this for dance class but if I need to dirty up the girls' hair, I use hairspray and then brush it out.
* If I need to tame wispy pieces of hair, I use hairspray. Nothing fancy.
* If you have more or longer hair, the bun can take on a cone-like shape. To prevent this from occurring, secure the bun with bobby pins as you're twisting it into the bun - not after you've twisted all the hair into a bun. Or/also, when you reach the hair at the end of the ponytail, don't twist it too tight or it will push out the hair twisted before it.
