High Cheer Bun | Updo Hairstyles

A month ago I was in California with my best friend and her daughters, where I filmed a few updo hairstyles.  This one is perfect for cheerleading or ballet, since it is a bun hairstyle, but it is also perfect for occasions such as prom or other formal occasions!

I forgot to snap a few still shots of this style when I was in California, so I recreated the hairstyle on  my daughter last week.

What I love about this particular bun style is that you can finish it off in any number of ways. We show three options here… wrapping the bun with a braid, splitting the hair and then cross wrapping, and then twisting the hair strands and wrapping.  One that I forgot to mention is that you could fishtail braid the strands and then wrap the bun.  That makes four options you can use!

This tutorial is filmed on the daughter of my best friend, who can sometimes be a goof!  Check out her cheesy smiles anytime the camera focuses in on her directly!  She is a great girl!  Enjoy!

Items Needed:  Brush, comb, water bottle, 2 hairbands, 2-3 bobby pins, and gel/pomade/hairspray (if desired).

Time Requirement:  2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy



Happy Hairdoing!

    I am a teenager and enjoy looking at all your cool hairstyles. When I grow my hair out longer, I will definitely be doing this hairstyle because of how quick and easy it is. I love doing hair! 🙂

    Hey there, welcome to California! I really wish that I could meet you in person. Your website inspired me! I love all of your hairdos, and I practice them on my 4 year old DD. We got tons of compliment from her teachers, friends and classmates. Thank you so so so much!
    Enjoy your stay!

    Hi there,

    My 6 year old daughter is a dancer and we were told by her teacher that the way you measure where to place a dancers bun is by putting a ruler (or something flat) on the top of their head and place the top of the bun directly underneath…so if the ruler touches the bun, it’s too high. Maybe something to mention in your tips! 🙂

    I want to also say that I love your website and have used so many of the hairdo’s that you’ve put on here – my daughter likes to come on here now and pick out her own style for me to do in the morning. We get complimented on her hair all the time! So thanks so much for everything! 🙂
