The Cheat’s Way of Using the Donut for a Ballerina Bun

Ballerina Bun

Ballerina Bun

I did the hair dare a few weeks ago and on one of the days I had a ballerina bun on, using the donut. I have to admit I struggled using it at first, even when I was looking (read studying intensely) at Paula Joye’s video on how to do it. Somehow I could NEVER get my hair to swirl nicely around the donut. But, one day, as I was channel surfing…online of course, I found a new and EASIER way to do it. I call it the cheater’s way.Instead of the sausage donut, I’ve used the round donut. It was about $18 from Hairhouse Warehouse, but I found out in Singapore it only costs $1!! Urgh! Are we being duped in Australia?? Anyway, back to the task at hand – the demo!

Hope I’ve somehow managed to give you another, easier way of using the donut. Let me know how you go and feel free to ask any questions if you’re stuck.

    I would love to try wearing my hair in a bun, will give it a go, even though I’m hopeless at doing hair styles

    Ooh, is that like a choc-iced one, or pineapple? And then you could have a snack when you take it out in the evening!

    I haven’t worn my hair in a bun for a long time but that would sure have been helpful when my hair was long enough to do so!

      True. I couldn’t use it when my hair was slightly shorter. Needs the right length to use that donut.

    I have ordered one from Hong Kong on Ebay. I can’t believe how much they are overcharging in Australia!

    Have you signed up for the great Valentine’s Beauty Blog Swap? It’s open internationally!

      It’s ridiculous isn’t it?! And it’s only this round thing that feels like a scouring brush! Totally over priced!

    I bought a sausage doughnut thingy in HK…havent tried it yet tho…

      Bet you it was much cheaper over there though? Let me know once you’ve tried using yours. You’ve got longer hair than I do, so I think it might be easier too.
