The GUARDian

Notes specific to the Jaguar Guard

SHOW Hair and Makeup

Mr. Duffy has informed the team members that they are to come up with their characters and their character's story for the "Young Person's Guide to the Neitherworld" show. The character and the story that they come up with should provide the inspiration for their hairstyle. Chosen hairstyles must be an updo but can vary in style and can include hair pieces that match the style of the show - think Victorian Steampunk. As was shared by the officers in the team text, if someone cannot figure out a hairstyle, a safe fallback is a bun!

This will be the look they use for all performances (games and competitions) starting with next Friday, 9/24 @ Lehman game.


In hopes of helping the members figure out their hairstyle, we have started a Pinterest board that you can see at

Guard members (and/or their parents) will need to learn how to style their own hair for future game days and upcoming competitions. In order to help parents and/or students who do not have hair styling experience learn how to style their child's hair, Maya's mom - Rebecca Ojeda, owner of Salon One 12 - will host a clinic on Saturday, Sept.18th @ 5pm. (see event below)

For older students that feel that they can already style their own hair, they can either come to the clinic with their hair already done or style at the clinic. We will also invite the members with hairstyling experience to assist other guard members with their hair.

Please make every effort to be there! If you cannot make it but would like help with learning how to style your hair:

  1. Team members can reach out to their older team members for assistance, and/or
  2. Parents who would like help with learning how to style their child's hair can reach out to guard moms at

Guard members should bring an image of the hairstyle that they have selected and would like to learn, and all hair products including rubber bands, bobbie pins, combs, and hair spray. (and potential hair accessory?!)


A list of eyeshadow colors and a video showing how to apply will be sent out to guard members soon. Until then, please make sure your guard member has the basic makeup needs: foundation, blush, eyeliner and mascara.

Competition Hair CLINIC

Saturday, Sep. 18th, 5pm

4260 Farm to Market 967

Buda, TX

Rebecca Ojeda, owner of Salon One 12, and her associates will host a CLINIC for moms and daughters on how to style competition hair.

This clinic is for guard members - moms are encouraged to attend (especially for cases in which the moms will be doing the hairstyle and not the guard member).

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Names must be placed on all uniform items

Please make sure that your child has his/her name on clothing and shoe items. We do not have an inventory of jazz shoes, sneakers, capris, black shirts, or their soon to be issued body wrappers and new summer uniform outfits. They will also soon receive their competition costume and those are irreplaceable!

If your child misplaces a uniform item without a name on it, chances are they will not get it back and then will impact the performance of the guard as a whole.

We recommend using a paint pen (silver or gold shows up well) or a silver sharpie. Write initials on the inside instep or side of foot of shoes (if you write on the bottom it will get rubbed off by their heels), inside gloves, and inside clothing items.

Guard member dismissal = 1) turning in uniform, and 2) cleanliness of guard and dressing rooms

Please know that from now on, guard members will not be dismissed to go home until:

  1. Uniform is properly hung and turned in on game and competition days, and
  2. They have picked up all of their items (and trash) from the guard and dressing rooms. Please see the pictures below that shows the guard room and the dressing room after the last game. The pictures make it apparent that the items left belong primarily to guard members. Names will be taken and will result in demerits.

We know everyone wants to go home as quick as possible so please encourage your child to make sure to clean up after themselves as the only way to ensure they go home quickly is for everyone to clean up after themselves.

Thank you!
