In this video from stephenswodadancer we learn how to do a clipped bun on an American Girl doll. Start with your doll's hair in a pony tail. Right at about the crown of her head works. Take the piece of hair from the top and curl it and fold it under. Clip the part that you curled to her head. You can go all the way around until you get to the bottom and keep clipping. Repeat this process all around her head until it is to your liking. This will need lots of clips so make sure you have them!
