Ready for Recital
Any child who is performing in any class in the recital must have their hair pulled back from their face!
Your teacher will tell you if a specific hair style is required. Commonly braids, or hair pulled half-back are styles commonly requested (see pictures above).
If your child’s teacher requires their hair to be in a bun, then the bun should be on the back of their head, roughly even with their ears. It should be held in place with a hair tie so that there is no hair on the dancer’s face. It should be smooth, with no visible part. If your dancers has bangs, they need to be held back with bobby pins or rubber bands so that they are not visible. Buns are then held in place with bobby pins. If you need to, you can use a bun donut. The bun is then covered with a hair net so that no hair escapes during the performance.
A video tutorial of ballet buns is available here.
