Hairstyle for dancing?...
Dec 4th, 2009 at 11:02pm
 
Hi!

Just wanted to know if anyone had a really good hairstyle for someone who dances a lot (salsa dancing mostly) and has to keep her hair tightly done up and close to my head (which I have not been able to find a style that will accomplish this). My dance partner gets annoyed when I hit him in the face with my hair.  Roll Eyes

My hair is fairly long (to my waist) and is very thick. So far, my mother has been putting it in a french braid and looping it under. I would like to find something better as, after a while, this begins to get loose and look a little sloppy.
Any recommendations?

Thanks so much!
Goldie

Hello Goldie!

When I was salsa dancing regularly, I would put my hair up in two cinnabuns with hair pins.

Michelle also linked me a very cool style that is part Italian hair taping and part Heidi braids. You make two English braids and then wrap them around your head like a crown. Using a plastic ribbon needle, you "sew" the braids in place instead of using hairpins.

Hope that helps!  Smiley

Hi, Goldie.  I agree with KNS, I'd go with two buns.

An alternative to the two buns could be a lace braid across the front that you wrap around a low bun.  If you braid the bun (3 strand or rope braid) it will take up some of the bulk.  Get yourself some Amish hair pins-they don't weigh a lot and can really secure your hair.  They're the only hairpins I use on my thick hair.
