Hair Do’s That Dance Well

The “up do” has never had it so good! This year’s in vogue coiffure centers around the “up do.” Look at any awards show or model runway shows and you will see a number of intriguing “up do’s” that are quite elegant and sometimes very elaborate.

That’s good news for dancers. Now there are more exciting hair choices for you then ever. It’s one thing to have clean, bouncy, shiny hair. And there are so many choices you have when it comes to shampoos, conditioners and styling products that help you to achieve this goal. But there’s nothing like an “up do” to frame your features and enhance your beauty and create classic elegance. Let’s face it, when your hair is up and away from your face, it gives you a nice clean line. It’s neat, striking and even gives you better posture. Having a stunning “do” can make your costume pop and give you that extra allure that is both artistic and professional in your dance demeanor.

There are some fun, creative and beautiful hairstyles out there. Don’t be put off if you can’t do it at first. It’s just like with your dancing, “practice makes perfect.” Also you can go online and watch tutorials on how to do different hairstyles on a number of sites.

Of course I’m not forgetting about you boys. You need to look every bit as poised and polished as your partners. Why not change things up once in awhile with a new hairstyle. A new look can give you a new attitude about yourself and your dancing.

Getting a hair cut or restyling your hair can get you noticed. Let’s say you are in a competition and it’s down to the last two couples. What do you want to bet that the couple that dances with the most confidence from “head to toe,” will be the ultimate winner. And head to toe means starting with your hair first.

A new and exciting “do” could make a winner out of you!!
