BUN MAKING 101

 

  1. Necessities  Brush, comb, donut, hairband (not a scrunchy) bobby pins, hairnet, hairspray

 

  1. Hair goes into a bun if it’s slightly dirty. If dancers’ hair is super fine, a hair gel may help.

 

  1. Brush hair into a ponytail either top of head, back or head or nape of neck depending on what has been requested.

 

  1. Pin bangs back or to side of head. Bangs are sort of like wearing a hat on stage, creates shadows on dancer’s face.

 

  1. Use a hairband to secure ponytail tightly. A scrunchie won’t work, they are decorative not hard working.

 

  1. For thin or short hair use a donut and slide pony tail up center of donut. Slightly backcomb hair, fold over and swirl around donut. Appy a hairnet twisting once to make fit better. These are cheap, usually come 3 in a pack for under $2. Well worth it.

 

  1. Pin the heck out of it, starting a one point on the bun and going around. I’d rather have too many pins than a wobbly bun distracting dancer.

 

  1. Spray liberally with hairspray. Old fashion Aqua net is fantastic.

 

  1. Hair decorations normally go on right side of bun.
