Practice Makes Perfect

Below you will find videos on how to make a dance bun. There is the classical way, you can also use a sock or buy a donut at the hair supply store. Watch the videos and choose which one would be easier for you or your child to do. 

With all of them you will need either Hair Pins (secures longer/thicker hair easier) or Bobby pins, hair ties, hairnet, and hairspray.

Scrunchies, headbands or hairbands wrapped around are not acceptable for class or performance.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
