The ballerina topknot is perfect for summer since it's an unfussy updo that keeps your neck cool and hair out your face. The pretty trend works with fancy attire (if you're going to an outdoor, summer wedding) or casual clothes (for when you're out running errands). And as you'll see here, Taylor Swift was recently a dressy bunhead, while Kim Kardashian kept it more casual.

The bun can be situated on the crown or piled high in the center of one's head, so it's a universal style that anyone can wear.

Taylor Swift

Swift's ballerina bun was pretty and simple, and didn't compete with her blue eye makeup. Her bun also proved that this style works with a heavy, face-framing bang.

Queen Bey also rocked a bun with blunt bangs. (See? Anyone can wear this style, no matter what their hair color or texture.)



The 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant situated her circular, voluminous bun smack dab in the middle of her head. It ended up resembling more of a beehive than a ballerina bun.

Sandy's messy, effortless bun kept her hair out of her face while she dropped her kid off at school. As we said, the ballerina topknot is a look for all tasks.
