Yes you do have to wear your hair in a bun for class and at the show (more on that later). Don't know how? That's okay, that's what I'm here for!

I made this awesome video just for you; dancers, teachers, parents, dads, etc.


Here's the breakdown:

For ballet class

  1. pull the hair into a ponytail, making sure the ponytail is really strong.
  2. gently twist the hair and wrap it in a circle
  3. put some pins into the hair and press them under the ponytail so they stay in (bumpy side down!)

For performance
  1. dampen hair
  2. Brush with a tight brush or fine-tooth comb
  3. hair spray
  4. brush more
  5. hair spray
  6. brush again just to make sure.
  7. hairspray again. just to make sure!
  8. ponytail (in 1 parts or 2, depending on hair length)
  9. gently twist and pin
  10. add a hair net
  11. more brushing
  12. more hairspray.
Enjoy, and stay tuned for more hair tutorials coming soon!
