HAIR and BALLET BUN
All students must wear the hairstyle assigned to their class for the performance. Use gel to keep bangs back and stray hairs in place.
Hair nets, like the ones in the picture below, matching your daughter’s hair color must be used for all bun hairstyles. We have free hair nets in the office which we will be giving out to all dancers who will be wearing buns. Just stop by and pick one up.
