Cute Teen Bun | Updo Hairstyles

I have received quite a few requests for me to show exactly how to do this elegant bun hairstyle, in the form of a video tutorial. Not a problem at all.  As you will see, this hairstyle does not appear as complicated as our Cute Tween Bun photo tutorial may make it seem…

You can see that this bun is very elegant, and is perfect for Homecoming hairstyles, Prom hairstyles, for ballet, or any other fancy occasion.  You may choose to accessorize it, or leave it as is.  Now, as you watch the tutorial… notice how the roll-ups take on a somewhat “floral” look after they are bobby pinned.  It is almost like the bun appears like a tropical flower whose petals are wrapping back.  It is beautiful, isn’t it?  As such, this hairdo would also be wonderful as a flower girl hairstyle.

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, one hairband, several bobby pins (large or small, depending on hair), hairspray, accessory (if desired.)

Time Requirement: Approximately 8-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Medium

If you like this style, be sure to let us know!  Happy Hairdoing!

  10. Oh my gosh!!! Thank you soooooooo much! I have three girls and had no clue about how to do their hair other than a plain pony tail, braid and a regular french braid. I just found your site and everything is soo easy to understand. I used this bun for my DD’s first daddy daughter dance. I looooved it, it was so easy. Thank you so much!!!

  11. We’ve done lots of your hairstyles but I’ve never commented before. My dd’s are 11 and 8. Today we did this hairstyle on the 11 yo. I was able to keep right up with the video, which is unusual for me! Anyway, she loved it and it looked great at church! Thanks!

  12. Hi, I love your hairstyles! My Mum isnt very good at doing hair so I tried this one on my own, When I showed my Mum I asked her to take a picture to show me what it looked like. I was really shoocked by the finishing touch, you see it did look quite good, so this shows that if a 11 year old girl, who is terrible at hair, can do it then anyone can…

  13. I used this as the “up-do” for my 6 year old, who was a flower girl. I was able to recreate it in about 15 minutes, having never done it before. The hardest part was starting the rolls. LOVED having the video. Thanks for posting. It looked professionally done and she received lots of compliments.

  14. Love this! What a wonderful mom you are! Love all of your pics and videos! My dd is 12 and we love your site. I’m not very good at doing hair but we love to look! Thanks for all of you hard work!

  15. Hey I love your hairstyles as you probably know! im 13 and I practice on my cousin (same age) all the time! I was wondering could you do a hairstyle where you could show us how to do flowers or how to make them.

  16. I love this style! I’ve known the theory behind it for a while, but it’s really nice to actually see it in action. Thanks so much for your videos, they’re very helpful!

  17. This is really pretty. I was able to do it when you posted it without the video. I have done it on my 10 year old’s hair and even my own hair. My husband actually commented that my hair looked cool.. LOL

  18. Hi,i’m Tia.I’m 9 years old and I love your hairstyles.I beg my mom to do them.I was just wondering,how do you get your girls’ hair so long,and in the family intro where did you get #2’s outfit?

  19. Thank you for your great videos!! I have loved watching how you do your little girls hair. It always looks so easy and super adorable. I have learned many simple tricks and tips! I hope you are able to keep posting lots of videos–they are fabulous!
