    I can't stand wearing a hairnet, I always feel itchy I just tend to plaster my hair in hairpray or gel and don't take my hat off unless absolutely neccessary. It makes for a very entertaining hairstyle afterwards

    In an english class, you should definetely wear a hair net. It adds to the look, and keeps you nice and clean looking. Judges will appreciate it, no matter where you are showing. As far as the hair over the ears thing, your hair should be 1/4 of the way over each ear, secured under a hairnet. Not sure why people do it, but it is part of the uniform. Its not uncomfortable, as long as you buy the right hairnets.

    How long is your hair? I could give you tips on how to keep it in the hairnet.

    Also, if you pin it, then put the hairnet on, and take the pins out right before you put your helmet on, it keeps it neat up in your helmet.

    It's about an inch below my collarbone.

    Yes! The right hairnet is the key! I usually take two of the nice, thick, soft ones and layer them together. Very comfortable. If you get the cheap, rough lunchlady style with the knots on the sides, then yeah, you'll probably get itchy.


    I don't know either why we cover the tips of our ears. Hmmm...something to investigate! My old instructor said we do it so we don't look like boys! Haha


    Blossom, you said you can put your hair in a bun to wear under your helmet w/o a hairnet. Do you shove the whole bun in your helmet? That sounds uncomfortable to me. Or do you leave it sticking out the back? Around here it's the norm to tuck up all your hair for Huntseat (except of course, the ear flaps).

    Oh geez, no. It's at the base of my neck, but it's not a lot of hair.

    In the H/J world buns aren't really the most ideal way to do hair. (I don't know about english eq) Putting it under your helmet and holding it in place with a hair net is! :) I can actually get mine to stay under my helmet without one so I have a few but rarely use them. I put my hair in a low pony tail, lean over, flip my hair over my head, and gently place my helmet over it all.

    Regardless of the classes you enter or level you compete in, wearing a hair net make you look more put together and clean. I would still get one:)
