The Golden Globes Red Carpet: The Ballet Bun

Stars like Chloe Sevigny, Svetlana Metinka, and Jada Pinkett Smith chose a classic and subdued ballet bun hairstyle for the Golden Globes last night. This simple hair look shows off their flawless makeup, gorgeous jewelry and fabulous dresses.

Not only will this look elongate your face and neck, but it will also keep you feeling neat and fuss free throughout the affair. It gives you one less thing to have to worry about. Hairstylist Campbell McAuley was responsible for creating the effortless look on Chloe Sevigny last night.

  • Start off by brushing your hair so that it is smooth and tangle-free and add a drop of Fekkai Glossing Cream, $19.50, to add shine to your hair.
  • Next, pull your hair back neatly into a ponytail at the back of the head or higher and secure it with a hair elastic. If you want a middle part, now is the time to determine that and brush hair back around the part. Also keep in mind where you would like the bun to be placed on your head. Wherever you make your pony, your bun will go.
  • Twist your ponytail as you wrap it around your hair elastic so that you make a coiled circular bun. Next, apply pins to keep the wrap in place. You will want to use about 12 pins per bun. Then, rub a little bit of Fekkai Technician Color-Protecting Glaze, $20, in between your fingers and gently apply it to your hair. This acts as a light gel and will hold your hair in place.
  • To finish, mist hair lightly with a gentle hold hairspray to eliminate any wisps. I like, Fekkai Sheer Hold Hair Spray, $23.
