Rachel Adler

Fall weather can occasionally wreak havoc on your hair with the wind and rain causing you to want to throw it back in a ponytail rather than dealing with it at all. Trying to get creative with different up-do styles is the key to surviving the upcoming winter weather, so we’ve started to stockpile different styles to try before the cold temps really hit. Xavier Silva from Mizu NY showed us how to get a romantic ballerina inspired bun for fall in just a few easy steps below.
