Question Hair for shows

I'm showing for the first time off-barn on Saturday and I just realized I have no idea how to wear my hair. I have thick, LONG (like ends past my shoulder blades long) hair and its so hard to keep in ponytails and no one in my family knows how to braid :( Any hair tips? I have hair nets, but I'm more concerned with keeping it IN my helmet and still being able to WEAR said helmet.

*I also do not have time to get a haircut before the show

I would say wear a hair net and tuck all your hair in or if you have/can borrow one of these ( Velvet Bow | Dover Saddlery ) or something like it they give a very nice look.

Pull your hair back together at the nape of your neck best you can. Now put on a hairnet {matches your hair color} from under the hair gathered at the base of your head, up & over the front. Some hair spray now applied to keep the wisps stuck inside the net. Once you put the helmet on...leave it on till done with your classes. The less on and off the better your hair will stay put.

Remember no dangling earrings or hoops... post style, simple & plain as possible....

Have fun and SMILE...

Enjoy and Good Luck!!
