    Yeah, it's a bit OTT, but a few textured pieces might look nice.

    Bumble and bumble hairspray brushes out easily, or even better dissolves in warm water. I have done a similar hairstyle with hairspray only, and it brushed it out after comp to a more normal look.

    Never seen anyone in a short hair style at standard competitions. Is it not allowed? :)

    Hazel Newberry had short hair when she danced with Christopher Hawkins:) I think Alessandra had short hair when she and William Pino turned pro. One of our coaches said she kept her hair short when she danced with her last standard of course. So its been done.

    ahh i SO agree- not only is teasing my hair a complete nightmare...but getting it out after is a whole other story!

    I’m not sure if it’s best place to post this question – does anyone know how much time does Boyko spent on doing standard hair? He can finish within one hour, half an hour? I booked him at noon for OSB while our heat is 2:40 in the afternoon, he can’t do any earlier since he said morning is crazy schedule for him. Hope he could finish within one hour so I still have some time for makeup and warmup?

    I heard others saying he’s good, but never asked around how fast he could finish standard hair.

    At Empire, he spent about 30-35 minutes doing my hair for smooth. Definitely not more than 40 minutes. And I have long hair...

    He's great. I have an appt. with him as well!

    I usually take all the pins out and then let the hot water and shampoo do the rest. If your hair is stoned the drain screen will catch any stones and they won't go down the drain.

    Yup, I've been told not to attempt to detangle or comb before washing. Or just wet it and condition the bejeebus out of it, and eventually you'll be able to comb through the mess. *flashbacks of detangling 80s Prom Hair :shock:*

    Can those of you having your hair done try to remember to take pics of it? Action shots from the comp sometimes don't show enough detail.

    and123, I have some pics of my hair from Empire on my phone. They're not ideal because they're on a phone, but I'd be happy to show you, if you can remind, the next time we're both at the studio.

    Michelle Tate usually wears her hair short (Pro Standard). She just slicks it back. Or at least that is what I've seen her do recently. It looks quite nice.

    Speaking of beehives, did anyone else notice the abundance of what I can only describe as the upward cone bun at OSB? I saw quite a few on the floor for pro Latin but my guess is they appeared elsewhere too. If it is a new, popular look, I'm not sure I can get on board! :(

    while I no longer wear my hair quite as slicked back...and prefer a higher up-do these days...i don't care for that cone on the top of the head look...heidi klum is wearing it on project runway this season and it doesn't even look good on her

    I'm not a fan either. Don't mind a high bun...but really don't like the tall cone. I don't get the point.

    my instructor's partner taught me to use conditioner to smooth one's hair when doing it up for a comp. then i put wax & spray on top of that. but with the conditioner already in the hair, it really does a nice job protecting it, and makes it easy to untangle when you shower up.

    I received a lot of Clinique makeup products for Christmas. And, I also bought several Revlon, Neutrogena and L'Oreal makeup products in November and December.

    I recently did a makeup purge of old products, to make room for the new products. To keep track of it, I'm putting wherever possible a date on the product with a Sharpie marker. That way I'll know how old a product is the next time I do a makeup purge.

    Products like mascara and powder I use up long before I would need to throw them away. But other products like eyeshadow, blush and lipstick can hang around a long time, and I have no idea how old they really are. Really old products can't be all that sanitary.
