Wordful Wednesday - Ballerina

This is my Ballerina.

This is my Ballerina's bun.

I used to fear the Ballerina bun.  But not anymore.
I have learned the secret to getting really thick 
hair into a pretty bun.

My secret?  
Wet hair, two braids twisted in opposite directions, 
enough hair spray to cause global warming and no less than 15 bobby pins.

The bun is why we stopped with ballet (well, it's not the only reason).

Great job-- on the bun and picture of said bun!

Valerie said...

That is a very pretty bun! I don't see that happening with my dancer--too many costume and hairstyle changes during recitals. Her recent recital had her in a ponytail during the first routine, and a bun during the second--hairnet required.

And for classes--no time to do that :-)!

Kristi said...

Her hair looks great and so does she!

K said...

Five girls, you think I would have learned how to do buns by now... I'm great with the clippers on my dude though (uh, well, except that ONE time...) :-O

The bun is nice, but the ballerina is even MORE beautiful...

Blessings friend!!
