Get the Look
Spritz your hair generously with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray and comb it through to spread the product and make your strands soft, smooth and shiny.
Alternatively, work in a tiny amount of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to control frizz and make your hair look plush.
Gather all your hair into a high ponytail as close to the crown as possible and secure it with elastic.
Spritz some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray all over your hair and use the back of your comb to tame flyaways.
Twist the ponytail neatly around the base of the elastic and keep tucking in bobby pins as you go to secure the ballet bun.
Spritz your updo with some more Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to set it for longer wear and wrap a hairnet around it to lend it a prim and proper finish.
Accessorize your ballet bun by sliding in a sparkly hair comb above or below the updo!
