Short hair?!


Recommended Posts

This past summer I went from long hair to a short, choppy cut. I am growing it out, as it was not the perfect choice, but my next performance is in April, and I am wondering on some tips to put up my hair, so I don't stick out! It can go into a very small pony tail, though! Thanks so much!

If that were my problem, I'd consult with a professional hairdresser, and see what's available. There are a lot more options these days in hair extensions, half-wigs - hey, even QUARTER-wigs. And there are technologies out there to help. I only know these from conversations with my sister, who has the beautician license.

I am not sure how she does it, but one of my friends that I dance with has super short hair. For performances, she wears a fake bun. I think she gels her hair back and puts the bun over her ponytail. You have to get a nice face bun or else it will look really fake.

But get advice on it from the pros! Many hair appliances aren't made for the forces that ballet dancers exert on them.
