The Classic Ballerina Bun

Buns have been around for ages and they aren’t going anywhere soon.  Whether you’re lounging around the house, at the office, or heading out for a night on the town, buns are simple, classic and look great with all different hair types!  Do you love the clean, smooth look you can get from a sock bun but don’t want to ruin your socks?!  Here’'s how you can create a polished ballerina bun at home sans-socks:

The Classic Ballerina Bun Step 1

Do you have fine hair that slips easily or coarse hair that attracts fly-aways?  Redken Quick Tease 15 is the perfect product to help give your hair some grip and hold it in place. Taking 1-2” vertical sections around your head, spray Quick Tease 15 from your roots through the mid-shaft.
