  • All students must adhere to the specified uniform requirements for their respective genre and level.

  • Watches and jewelry should not be worn during class to ensure the safety and comfort of all dancers.

The Perfect Ballet Bun: A Step-by-Step Guide

Whether you're preparing for class or a performance, mastering the ballet bun is an essential skill for every dancer.

Step 1: Gather Your Tools

Before we begin, make sure you have the following tools handy:

  • Hairbrush

  • Fine-tooth comb

  • Hair ties (matching your hair color)

  • Bobby pins (also matching your hair color)

  • Hairnet (optional for added neatness)

  • Hair spray or gel (optional)

Step 2: Brush and Detangle

Start with clean, dry hair. Brush your hair thoroughly to remove any knots or tangles. A smooth canvas ensures a neat and polished bun.

Step 3: High or Low? Decide Your Placement

Ballet buns can be positioned either high on the crown of your head or lower at the nape of your neck. Choose the placement that feels most comfortable and aligns with your dance style.

Step 4: Secure a Ponytail

Gather your hair into a tight ponytail in the chosen placement. Use a hair tie to secure the ponytail, ensuring it is snug against your head.

Step 5: Twist and Coil

Take the ponytail and twist it tightly. As you twist, the hair will naturally start to coil. Continue twisting until the entire length of the ponytail is coiled around the hair tie.

Step 6: Pin It Up

Once you have a twisted coil, begin wrapping it around the base of the ponytail. As you wrap, use bobby pins to secure the bun in place. Tuck the ends of your hair under the bun and secure with more bobby pins. Cover the bun with a bun or hairnet. Place it over the bun, twisting the excess and wrapping it round the bun. Secure the edges with bobby pins.

Step 8: Smooth and Set

Use a fine-tooth comb to smooth any flyaways or stray hairs. For exams and performances spray with hair spray.

The key is practice – the more you create buns, the easier and quicker the process becomes.

Happy bun-making!
