The ballerina bun remains a popular fashionista 'do, and the Braid Bun Bang tutorial shows you how to add an easy twist to this already effortless look. While the tutorial name is a real mouthful, the instructions themselves are quite simple.

Before pinning your prim updo in place, make sure to leave a bit of hair hanging out for the braided portion. After you have created your ballerina bun, braid the remaining hair and secure it with a clear rubber elastic. Take your plait and secure it around the base of the bun using hairspray and bobby pins.

The Braid Bun Bang tutorial lets you add a whimsical spin on this ever-so-popular look. The boho braid adds a Grecian goddess vibe to this otherwise prim-and-proper 'do, providing a more casual take on this formal style.
