Pull up the hairnet part that is on your ears to it just holds the top part of your ears against your head. Make sure there are no loose ends. At the end it should look like this RWR® No Knot Hair Net | Dover Saddlery
I hope this makes sense lol you may need someone to show you or do it for you the first few times :p

When I put my hair up, I use two hair nets (as do many of the girls at my barn)

I use the first hairnet like others users described...putting it over my head and then making a low, tight pony tail with the hairnet + hair. Then I flip my head over and put the second hairnet on from back to front to help keep my extra ponytail hair tidy and tight against my head, twisting the front of the hairnet and tucking it under the bottom hairnet to make sure everything is secure. Then I flip my head over again and put my helmet on from back to front, making sure to get all of my hair in there :) Sometimes it takes a few tries before everything is comfortably settled but it works for me!

I do it because my hair is a bit longer and the second hairnet stops hair from poking over my forehead, haha.

I actually need to cut my hair again...my helmet is getting a tiny bit tight. :p

Ooooh nice tip! Guess I'll just have to play with it and find what works for my hair...hopefully I can even do it now, since I didn't order my helmet a size too large...

My hair is on the thin side so my helmet fits both with my hair up and with it down. It doesn't really compromise the fit. But yes, in the hunters, wear your hair up.
