Need Hair Advice!

My OTTB and I will be in our first hunter show in two weeks. I have long hair, one length. Under my velvet hat, how do I properly get it into a hairnet? Do I make a ponytail and then wrap the hairnet around the ponytail? Do I put the hairnet over my entire head, or just the ponytail?

Thanks.

Put the hairnet over your whole head & tuck in your hair. Then put your hair in a pony tail (over the hairnet) and when putting your helmet on flip your head forward and put ponytail in your helmet. Make sure you put your hair over the tips of your ears, and the hair net as well. The ponytail should be tight enough to stay in place, but lose enough to go over your ears and everything. Good luck at your show :)

Haha I had long hair down to my butt when I first started putting my hair in my helmet. It's complicated. It works! You just have to flip it in half sometimes . Just practice. That's for hunters and jumpers though, if you're doing dressage, I know they do a much different way.

I braid my hair in french braid pig tails and then bobby pin them up as low as I can get them on the back of my head. I criss cross them and tuck the ends in. I use small and large bobby pins....then load myself up with hair spray. I do it so well that the Moms at our schooling shows always approach me to get their girls hair done. It has never fallen out, but it does make your head sticky if you sweat in your helmet. Lol

I used to do this when I used to show, way back when, as well. My only problem is I was in CA showing in 100+ degree heat and the hairspray would get into my eyes. I used to use a black sweatband (I know what a geek) around the edge where the helmet was, or at least so that it wrapped around my forehead but hidden by the helmet to keep the hairspray from running down so bad.

I just meant that my helmet would stick to my hair. I didnt have issues with it running down my face, but great tip! How do you get the headband to stay? When I use them, they just slip out....

I would clip it in or sometimes you can take your bangs..if you have them or two sections of your hair in front or you can even do it in back too and make sort of a swirl or tiny bun with that section and put in place with a bobby pin. Then attach the band to those little buns with a second bobby pin being sure to cross over the first pin...they should make an X. I actually learned that trick when I used to have to pin on wigs for dance recitals....but it works great for the sweat band.

Then you can hairspray like a maniac ha ha!

Is the goal in a hunter show to have no hair showing under the helmet?

You really are going to want all hair to be absolutely under the helmet, Especially in more competitive shows.
I look so ugly in a helmet... any tips for that?
