How to Get the Cheerleader Look

Learn how to get the cheerleader look from UCA instructor Ashley Cowan of in this Howcast video.


Getting the look of a cheerleader takes a few steps, but ones that make all the difference. Here are a few tips to obtain the All American cheerleader look. For your makeup, I suggest applying eyeshadow, lipstick, and mascara. But don't overdo it with crazy eyeshadow colors or really heavy eyeliner. But, you also want to remember to apply enough so it stays on all day. On to your hair. Half-up, half-down always looks great, either straight or with a nice wave. But, if you can't do half-up, half-down, try a poof pony. Always make sure that you use hair spray and never have wet hair. Bow placement. For the game day look, you want to make sure that your bow is on the back side of your head and that the tails of the bow are pointing downward. To get this, you want to make sure that your ponytail is not at the top of your head. When you're gathering your hair behind you, try to keep your ponytail at eye level. Uniform fit. Getting the perfect uniform fit makes all the difference. Your uniform shouldn't be too baggy or too tight. Now you're ready to hit the sidelines on game day.
