    Default Turbans

    Hello I wish I had fairy hair too its not fair.....I have to wrap mine up in knots to get it to go curly....
    OK TURBANS...
    I use a strechy peice of material with sparkles if you want....long enough to wrap around my head and hair about three times....now depending on the look i am after i can pull all my hair back or only the front....
    then with the middle of the wrap (material) I put it on like a head band then keep wraping untill the ends meet at the back..... alll the messy bits of material gets tucked back into its self and there you go........now you can shimmy shimmy shimmy and the cane MIGHT not fall off your head...... just experiment with the wraping untill you find a look that suits and it adds ommph to a costume


    (look out mouse another thing to add to your shopping list lol)

    I have very long hair and it's dead straight. I have never been able to keep any styles in it no matter how much heat or product I use. Even teasing my hair into knots slides right out!!
    In our troupe, we wear our hair out for performances, which, for me is annoying because our cholis are of panne (crushed) velevt, and long hair like mine just rubs against it to become very statically charged - on a dry day, at the end of a performance, my hair becomes a really scary affair!!

    It's for this reason I tend to put my hairup for classes.

    Hey PhysicsFairy,

    I have long straight hair too (though as I'm getting older it's getting some weird texture/curl in the underside. Odd.) Anyhow, there are some things that I've found help with the static (and the accompanying look) straight hair can get. There are some "shine" and smoothing products work well to keep hair smooth and less staticy (I use one from John Frieda's Brilliant Brunette line, but there are a lot of different ones.) You smooth a small amt through your hair while it's wet--less than you think initially. Concentrate on the ends and the hair below the neck. Also I've found if I keep my hair trimmed and the ends moisturized, it helps it hang together nicer. If the ends start to get ragged (different lengths etc) they get more static prone and fly-away looking.

    *Resurrecting this thread because I'm considering a change in hairstyles*

    I'm considering hacking off my boob-length, terribly thick hair and going for something much cooler over summer. The thing is: when my hair is really short (like I'm planning), it turns into cherub-style curls. Cooler, and easier to maintain, but is it really a good look for a dancer? I've seen dancers with short spiky hair, but never curls.

    Aniseteph, I know you said earlier in this thread that you had short hair. Did you style it at all for dancing?

    Cherub-style curls? Why not? Sounds very Dina-esque to me, even if it's shorter... it's one of those things I would have loved to have, but know I never will. Oh well, it never would have worked with my face anyway.

    Default short haired dancer

    my hair is medium length, and i wear extensions when i dance, at least most of the time...cuz when i don't, i have nothing to toss, adn it looks a bit silly when i toss my medium-length hair around.

    My hair is very thin, straight and medium length (or long, I'm not sure about the definition of long hair... it's over shoulder length anyway but doesn't quite reach my waist), it won't grow longer no matter how hard I try... I normally braid it when it's wet the night before the performance and open the braids just before dancing, it's the only way to give my hair some volume. I may also add some small braids to keep the hair away from my mouth (not nice to spit hair out while dancing).

    People have told me that hair normally looks thicker when it's short or layered. I have tried both and it just makes it look even thinner, like I had no hair at all (and I don't feel like myself with short hair).

    Usualy thin hair looks better short, but not always, it depend on how the ahir sit on your head.

    Short hair is above the ears, medium length is from the ears and gown to the sholders, then comes sholder leng witich is aboute the sholders. Long hair is hair from sholders to halfway down the back and the rest is very long hair. Or alt least those is the definitions I have heard.
