a dancer's hair


Recommended Posts

I have sported a pixie haircut for about a year now. My ballet teacher is fine with my short hair, but I am wondering if it is acceptable to be a ballet dancer with short hair this day in age? I am torn about whether to grow it out or not... Thank you in advance!

For class, short hair is fine, but it's at performance time that it becomes critical. You have to be able to display a style which is acceptable to the designer. Today you don't have to do it all as for Giselle, but if that's the ballet or the period, then you have to be able to achieve the proper look by wigs, appliances, etc.
