Balletcore is In and Here Are Three Easy Ways to Wear It, According to Sebastian Professional Artists

12/15/2022

While there is certainly no shortage of popular core aesthetics all over TikTok right now, one that has been hard to miss recently is “balletcore”. Characterized by pastels and feminine silhouettes, ballet-core takes major inspiration from the fashion and accessories of dancers. 

In terms of fashion, emulating balletcore can be done through tulle skirts, leg warmers, wrap sweaters, and ribbons. However, how can you take this trend to the next level through hair. Or, better yet, how can you use hair to cater this trend more towards your personal style?

Sebastian Professional Top Artist Angel Cardona  says, “Maybe balletcore is a bit too soft and feminine for your own personal style. There are so many ways to take this style and make it your own!” Sebastian Professional International Stylist Anthony Cole agrees, “You can adapt this aesthetic to your personal style by playing with the texture of your hair. Utilize your own natural wave or curl, keeping the look true to your own hair texture while still incorporating the balletcore aesthetic.”

Ahead, Cardona and Cole share a few ways to incorporate the balletcore look through unique buns!

To achieve this simple and sleek look, Cardona advises to first apply Sebastian Professional Potion 9 and Sebastian Professional Dark Oil throughout the hair. Then, secure most of the hair, with the exception of a few baby hairs or bangs if applicable, into a tight low ponytail. Create two rope braids from the ponytail, wrap them to form a tight bun, and secure it with bobby pins.

In order to further personalize your slicked-back low bun, Cardona suggests playing around with embellishing. For this look, try decorating the bun with a string of colorful rhinestones. You could also add Insert Name Here’s hair gems to the head to further add some sparkle and enhance the whimsical look.

For this look, Cole  recommends spraying Sebastian Professional No.Breaker  onto damp hair and brushing it thoroughly. Then, apply Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte onto the hair and blow dry in an upward motion, guiding hair where you want to ultimately place the bun. Secure the hair into high ponytails, and loosely wrap two strands around the ponytail to create a bun. Secure the strands with bobby pins, and finish by spraying a small amount of Sebastian Professional Shaper as well as pulling out a few hairs to further the messy look.
