Rosette Buns | Updo Hairstyles

What I love about maintaining this website on cute hairstyles is hearing back from all of you. I feel like many of you have caught on to how much fun doing your daughter’s hair can be… that it provides a few minutes of quality one-on-one time with them in the mornings. I particularly love reading that so many of you feel that your daughter’s confidence is boosted by all of the compliments she is receiving. I know, it is also a little fun for you, too!

Perhaps one of the most frequent hairdo requests I receive in email from moms is further help in how to create our Rosette Buns hairstyle (click link for step-by-step photos and instructions) from last year.

As such, I was able to film this hairstyle tutorial on my daughter last week.  (One YouTube commenter just said that you could simply use only two rosettes on top and the rest of the hair down in the ponytail and it would look very cute as well.  I hadn’t thought of doing that, but it would look super cute!)

This can be considered a flower girl hairstyle for a wedding, a ballet hairstyle, or just a simple and elegant updo for prom/homecoming or a formal night out…

Items Needed: Comb, brush, spray bottle, hairspray, and 6 rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

I hope this helps! Do you like the video tutorials? Do you feel that they are efficient? Let me know!

Happy Hairdoing!

    Love it!!! I look at a lot of hair websites but they only show the picture and I get so confused but this one is by far the best explaining website because a website just says ” oh well first you twist hair and make a bun and tie it and spray it and add accessories and enjoy your easy do”

  • Thanks so much for your tutorials! I try to do something different with my daughter’s hair all the time but we were running out of hairstyles. The ones you’ve posted are not only super cute but they are so quick & easy to do. I’m going to keep your blog on my “favorites” so we can continue referring to it for future “do”s. There’s even cute hairstyles for my short shoulder length hair I can do, which is a relief cause I never thought you could do much w/ this length hair. Appreciate it!

    I love your site. My little girl and I have long, uncut hair. We are apostolic pentecostals and do not cut our hair as the bible instructs. We have tried many of these hairstyles and loved them!! Thank you so much for sharing your styles with us. Styling our hair beautifully means so much to us. We are a part of the United Pentecostal Church Inc., and I know all of our women and girls would benefit if they see your site! I pray God continues to bless you as you work for him!

    LOVE your blog…I always look to it for examples for my daughters hair and even for myself! The videos are sooooo helpful. I am trying the rosette buns next time I wash my daughter’s hair. Adorable! Thanks for all of your help.

  • 3tiaras

    OMG! Her hair is short, so I couldn’t do her hair, but we found this website and have fallen in love with it! My daughter has been practicing on MY hair these styles! Great Job! Wish I had found this sooner!

  • LOVE the videos its the only way I can really see how to do the styles, and like another poster my daughter likes to watch them with me then she see’s how nicely your daughters sit to get their hair done and she tries to do the same its fantastic!

  • Lesley Robertson

    Thanks for the great hair videos. Love your family! As a Mom of 5 girls I love all the new ideas! Keep sharing! Lesley

  • Darlene

    My 5 yr old daughter loves to watch your videos. She has long thick hair, so she has enjoyed all the updo’s this hot summer. And I love them for school to keep other peoples hands out of her hair. Keep up the great work.

  • amanda

    I love these videos and use them obsesively, i am so grateful for you i have never really known how to do hair and since i had my dai=ughter i always wanted to do her hair pretty she is now only 2 but has long full hair so i just wanted to say thank you because of you my daughter always has very stylish hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! keep them coming!!!

  • I love the videos!! Not only do I love watching them, but you learn more that way. I have a hair blog, too, and sometimes it can be easier to just do a video then dowloading 50 pictures!

  • Angie Ward

    I love your video tutorials! I find them very helpful! Thank you! -Angie

    I don’t know if it’s my computer or not, but I thought I’d let you know that I can’t link to any of your catergories along the top. Every link tells me there’s an error on the page.
    It may very likely be a problem on my end, but I wanted to let you know in case it’s not.

    BTW- I LOVE this easy ‘do’. It is going to be a favorite of mine on those running-late school mornings:)

  • Amber

    I love all of your hair styles every morning my daughter and i come on here to find her a hair style.. We will have to start coming on here the night before when school starts.. Her hair is a little past her shoulders she can’t wait for it grow so we can try new hair styles.. You are awesome keep up the great work mindy..

  • Linda

    The videos are really useful, please keep them coming! It’s incredibly helpful to see it done in real-time for me.

  • Sarah

    That has always been a favorite! I love the video’s Mindy!!

  • shandie

    i love both! 🙂

  • Joleen

    Love the videos! Thanks!

  • LOVE the videos. I need the videos to pick up on the little things that my mom never taught me. THANKS for your blog. LOVE IT!

  • Carolyn Rhodes

    Video tutorials are key for me. I’m such a visual learner, and love the step by step instructions. Thanks for all the time you put in to making these.

  • Christy S. Lube

    I know I’m terribly selfish, but I like both the videos AND the step-by-step photos… lol. Sometimes I pick up a detail from one that I missed in the other, and sometimes with the craziness of the house, I can peruse pictures a lot easier than I can pay attention to a video. Either way, I absolutely LOVE your site, and my girls love looking through the hairstyles and picking out the ones they’d like to try 🙂

  • Isabel

    I saw someone do this but instead they did a lot more buns and they took WAY longer.

  • We love the video tutorials. Many times as we peruse the website for the next mornings hair, my daughter picks hair styles that have a video on them because she likes to watch them. Then in the morning she pretends we are recording our own video as well as I do her hair.

  • Jeannette

    Love the videos!! Keep them coming. They help me see it better as it is being done!
