Ballet Hairstyles for short hair

Hi all, I have been taking ballet classes for just over 2 years now (I went back to them after 20 years of being away), and I have just had my hair cut.

The thing is, I am used to wearing my hair in a bun. I am considering getting hair extensions for certain events coming up and was wondering about the use of hair extensions in a ballet class.

1. Will they be visible in a bun?
2. Are they likely to fall out during a grande jete or pirouette?
3. Do they make putting hair into a bun more difficult.

If hair extensions are not appropriate, can anyone tell me what is appropriate for short hair? I suspect my hair will fall in my face frequently if I don't use anything.

Thanks :)

How short is your hair exactly? Is it like a bob, pixie, or shoulder length?

Actually, seeing as i've had short hair such, SUCH a long time, I've collected LOADS of short hair dos on pinterest, if you're interested in having a look. Heaps of them work for teaching in, so would also be fine for class. www.pinterest.com . . .

Absolutely true. About a year ago I got my hair cut into a chin length inverted bob and this is exactly how I kept all the layers out of my face, and then used a bunch of snap clips to secure the ends at the back. After it grew out a bit I switched to double French braids until it was long enough again for a ponytail and baby bun.

My hair is in a chin length bob and I just wear a stretchy headband to keep it out of my face. It seems to work fine.
