How to do a ballet bun

  1. Pull the hair back into a neat pony-tail making sure the elastic is quite tight. No fringes please.
  2. Twist the hair and coil around the elastic to form a "bun" shape (or plait the hair then coil around).
  3. Put the net over the hair and shape the bun so it is neat, round and quite flat against the head Place several U-shaped hair pins around the bun to secure it (ensuring that the pins lie flat against the head)
