Hunter hair? Am I doing it right?

Hey, I was wondering how you're supposed to put up your hair for a hunter show. I experimented with my hair today and I came up with this process: Hairnet around all hair, tie in low ponytail (so the hairnet is around my head AND the tail), put tail up on top of head, put on helmet back to front. Also, I read somewhere that the hair should go over the ears?

Am I doing it correctly?

A much neather way is to braid or even better, freanch braid the hair. It really helps keep the hair out of your face. I just flip mine up once into a bun. not onto of my head.

It looks good, just be sure the hair net covers your ears

you're doing it GREAT! i don't like french braids (and HATE buns) because you can't get that little bit of hair over your ears. Which I admit, don't do myself, but when it comes down to other people looking good, is important. :)
