Messy Bun

  1. Make a high pony
  2. simply twist all or sections of the hair and pin in place
  3. use a lot of spray!
Used often in Jazz, Tap & Contemporary

Pre Primary & Primary Ballet

Part the hair down centre from front to back……..take care and get it right!

Loosely tie the parted hair into piggy tails just to keep hair out of the way
Start on one side and neaten piggy tail until it sits diagonally above the ear (roughly) get all the lumps and bumps out, the do the other side make sure it matches height and placement wise keep undoing and spraying and combing bumps out until it is neat and equal (I normally redo each pony tail twice to get it perfect).

Plait each ponytail right to the end and tie


Cross and pin the plaits down across the head, wrap the ends around the elastic bands to hide them and pock ends under plait.
Secure plaits with hair net, this will need to be doubled over

Pin with bun pins until it won't move

Finally add the flowers that I will give you on exam day - please remember to return all hair flowers and numbers!

Classical Bun

Video A very clear but doesn't talk about the high flat bun that is so important

Video B very clear about the large flat aspect, but not as clear in general (however, it is the better example of the bun you want to achieve)

Hair nets are best as you can twist them to go over the hair twice, providing much better shape to the hair.
