Hair

Women and girls of all ages are expected to have hair neatly pulled back for all classes and in a bun for all ballet classes. Younger girls will need assistance, but are expected to be able to do their own hair as they reach middle school age.

Here’s a great video tutorial on ballet buns by the Anaheim Ballet 


Men and boys should also have hair away from their eyes.
