This week we are adding another "dance bun" technique to our collection! The princess's standard dance team hairstyle this year is a classic donut bun / sock bun. And, I'm sure many of you who dance are required to wear this hairstyle from time to time for competitions and recitals as well. It seems to be the standard "go to" style for many teams as it is very simple and looks polished besides.
We have shown several different methods for making this type of bun in the past and are always up for trying something new. Each technique we have tried seems to have its pros and cons. A lot of deciding which bun is best for your dancer is going to depend on her hair texture and length. We both liked this "perfect bun" kit (made by Remington) and think it is one of the easier methods for wrapping up long hair into a bun. The first time we tried it we were slightly worried that it may unroll itself (since there is really nothing visible holding it together) but luckily we have not had a problem with it coming out mid-dance yet! I would definitely recommend using bobby pins all the way around the bun (as demonstrated) to be sure though.
One of our favorite perks to wearing this bun is the cute no-heat curls you will be left with when you take the bun down.
We purchased our "perfect bun" maker at either Walmart or Target (we have had it for awhile and I don't remember which!) If you are having trouble finding one, they also are sold online. Link in our blog post here: princesshairstyles.com
