Do you wear your hair up inside or outside of your hat?

I noticed yesterday that most of the dancers had their hair tucked up inside of their hats. I have always done a low bun on hornpipe days, so the hat band could sit on the bun to hold it in place. I just like the look. Is there any regulation about this? Thanks for answering!

My DD's have either had their hair in a bun up inside the hat or when their hair was layered i french braided it with the braids pinned up below the hat. I have seen girls with a bun below the hat and in knowing a couple of them this is done as their hair is long and thick and a bun would be impossible to fit under the hat. All have placed well at the premier level regardless of which they have chosen.

I've almost always tucked my hair inside my hat. When wearing a bun I always make sure the bun is high enough on my head to go inside the hat. There are a few times when I was younger that I had a french braid and there was no need but I prefer a bun to a french braid anyway.

I keep my bun (wearing it really quite high) and I put my hat over it. If I'd wear the bun outside the hat, I'd have to wear the bun low and I just don't like that look much.

we can't seem to fit my daughters hat on if we keep her hair in a bun, so we keep it in a pony tail and just wrap it around.

Wow, I wasn't aware there were so many options to this. Thanks for the info!

I have seen both hairstyles for the hornpipe, but when I am dancing I have my hair in a bun inside my hat. Normally when I dance the hornpipe in competition it is almost always the first dance, so as oppose to struggling to put my hair in a bun right after I dance, I put my bun as high as I can to make my hair fit inside my hat.

I have always put my hair inside my hat. It just stays out of your face and looks neat. I dont think I have ever seen a dancer with hair down for the HP- for jig yes... but not hornpipe. :)

I think it depends on the length and thickness of your hair, either way works though.
