Gretl's Buns


This look was originally twin french plaits, to match all the other children.  However after someone pointed out to me that Gretl, (as the smallest and cutest of the Vontraps) should probably stand out from the rest. This meant the look was adapted into the traditional Austrian twin buns. I think everyone will agree how cute they look. 

The hair was parted in a centre parting from the front hairline to the nape of the neck.


The hair was gathered from each side and secured with a bobble or elastic band. This created two pony tails either side of the head.


Not forgetting I had the pesky microphone to contend with. Before securing the second pony i had to create a second parting from the centre of the forehead to the adjacent side at the nape of the neck. I then back-brushed through the parting and secured the microphone wire to the back-brushing using grips.  This meant the microphone was going nowhere as I brushed the pony into place.



Once the microphone was secured and ready to go, the ponytail was gently back-brushed to create the volume needed for the bun.  This goes to show you don't always need a bun ring to create a perfect, volumised ballet bun.


The hair was twisted loosely round the bobble to created the completed bun.


The bun was then tweaked and perfected to the eye before securing with grips and hairspray for the final look.


How cute does she look??
