    Hi! There are lots of different kinds of buns..low, high, tight, more relaxed.. It all depends on what your doing. I find that either really high buns or really low buns are most flattering. When the bun starts to be just in the middle of your head it doesnt really look that great.

    i agree!! im a high buner :) they can make you feel a little taller and are totally flattering. i remember my teacher saying it should be on a diagonal line from your ear going up

    Ive heard that too and its true. When it goes up from your ear it does look good.

    I always wear hair nets on stage! In class I dont think its needed but definitely when you perform. With the lights, you can always see your fly away hairs and it does look professional.

    Thats very true. I have to wear hair nets even in class because its easier for me to do my hair with one but most of my friends dont. But we have to wear them when we perform.

    You can always look for videos that help with doing different hairstyles. It does take time to get used to making your hair look and feel good! Just try to make it look clean and eventually it will be easier and you can graduate to french twists and braids and all that fun stuff!

    I’ve been dancing for 7 years, and I still haven’t found a style I’m totally happy with. I generally do higher buns and use these big, kind of rectangular pins. My best advice is to constantly experiment. You will find something that works pretty well for you and you’ll use that for a while, then later, you’ll find something even better. Good luck!

    I Love doing a high bun but my teacher doesn’t like it! Instead I sometimes do a braid from the front and pull it into the back. A really pretty braid is doing it like this…seperate two sections of hair in the front of your head Pull the rest of the hair into a bun. Grab one section of hair that you didn’t pull into a bun and braid loosely. Then grab one of the three strands and while holding the other two strands pull the one strand upwards towards your scalp, this creates a lace like braid…do the same to the other side… then pull those braids to the back of the head and secure with bobby pins finish with a hair net to stop the fly aways. This technique works the best with medium/long hair.
