Trend Forecast... Messy Ballerina Bun!

A trend I'm in love with right now is the messy ballerina bun! This is a classy hair trend that works wonderfully in the summer heat but can also cross over into the fall!

My camera made me look so pastey!...I'm not. ha
When I rock this hair style I like to do so with flowy pieces of clothing and/or lacey pieces. As for makeup I like to keep everything very neutral then add a bright pop color with a coral or red lip! I love the look of a pulled up hairstyle with a bright lip, I think it just looks so classy and elegant with a little bit of a sexy edge!

This is also a great transition from summer to fall hairstyle. I fully plan on wearing this hairstyle in the fall with over sized sweaters, sheer neutral blouses, and SCARVES! I'm already planning out my fall outfits and accessories I would wear when I have my hair in this style! I'm even thinking of nail polishes! Oh man, Fashion Nerd Alert!  So chic! Can't wait!

Here's How:
Step 1: Flip head upside down 
Step 2: Gather all hair at very top of head. I mean high so you will have a really high ponytail!
Step 3: Then loosely pull hair into a high loose ponytail
Step 4: Twist ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins 
Step5: pull out hair pieces to frame face...I like to do the hair right above my ears and my little baby hairs.
Step 6: Lightly spray all over with hairspray

P.S. Another hair trend while we're on the subject of buns, is the top knot bun. This was all over the fall 11' runways and I'm also SUPER excited for this because...well this is my lounging around the house in my pj's hair! Now I can wear it anywhere and still feel chic ;) whoop!
