Hey DDNers :)
I have been doing comps for just under a year now and i am in novice with 2 stamps. my hair IS long enough to put in a bun but not long enough to put on top of my head. I was wondering for when i go into intermediate/premier and i'm doing the hornpipe are you aloud to have your hair in a ponytail for other dances or does it have to be in a bun.

Thanks :)

The general rule is that there should be no adornments in your hair (ribbons and bows etc) and that the hair should not be a distraction.

You do not have to have it in a bun but having a ponytail flopping back and forth could be distracting. If you have your hair in a ponytail, make sure that you keep it securely under your hat or pinned back somehow. A big, long pony swinging from side to side is not the best look to go for.

Personally, what I do is I take my hair out of the bun right before the Hornpipe and just stuff it in my hat. My hat is tight enough on my head that my hair won't fall out at all. It's saved me a lot of trying to squish a bun into my hat.

^Yeah, I do that too. It's a LOT more comfortable, and you can't tell at all that it's not a bun underneath.
