While the classic ballerina bun has long since been associated with classic elegance, this understated yet chic hairstyle is receiving a rebellious upgrade for Spring 2017. If you’re wondering how to transform this refined bun into an edgy hairdo for the season ahead, look no further than the runway at Christian Dior. At Dior, a slicked-back bun was accessorized with tiny cornrow braids on the underside. The funky finish brought visual interest to an otherwise effortless style.

Meanwhile, the new ballerina bun has also been making waves on Instagram. If you’re a fan of bright springlike hues, you may want to pull your pastel-hued strands into a tightly plaited ballerina bun. The inclusion of magenta, sky blue and yellow shades can transform your regular locks into a colourful, eye-catching look.
