After many an inbox message on asking how I achieved my nerd-upstyle in the previous post, I felt I had to write on how to wear the ballerina/doughnut bun! This voluminous bun-style should perch atop of your head although I quite like the lower and side version too. It's chic, stylish and easy! Perfect for a bad hair-day or just a lazy one. The best part is that this chignon style is no longer limited to the thick-haired elite, the lucky ones. Thanks to the invention of the sponge doughnut (Eureka!) anybody can get this look. And just in case you were wondering, everybody's doing it...
Carey Underwood opts for the lower version
This hairstyle can be cute and quirky...
Or epitomize sophisticated, understated beauty...
So this is how you do it.
Step 1: Tie your hair in a tight, high pony-tail
Step 2: Pick a doughnut... any doughnut
Step 3: Pull your ponytail through the sponge
Step 4: Pull your hair tightly around the doughnut
Step 5: Tuck your hair under the doughnut and secure
And there you have it!
