    I've seen all of them, I know exactly what you were talking about, and If I were a judge, it would totally bother me, no doubt, collegiate competition IS COMPETITION TOO! Just because lack of budget, skills etc doesn't give an excuse for not making effort to look the part, plus, hair stuff is really inexpensive, tons of youtube videos teach how to, so yeah, I'd totally mark down the couples look like just roll out of bed.

    So, it's "Ponytail Inception," is what I think you're saying! Ha! I'll try that today! Thanks!

    That's a great idea! The part that always seems to take me the longest is getting the foundation ponytail(s) smooth. Making the actual curlicues doesn't take as long.

    I have Rhythm and Standard on the same day..... Getting hair and makeup done by vendor, but have no idea what would work for both styles?

    Thanks...Im thinking a low bun. First time that I'm dancing 2 different styles on one day. It should be an experience.

    I know how you feel. I always did it in college, where everything's a one day comp (at least almost everything), but I'm a little antsy about doing it for my first pro/am and open amateur competition experience (since I feel like the standard of polish and presentation is suddenly much higher for me).

    But I'm a guy, so I guess I have very little to whine about here.

    Well then, as a guy, you should *definitely* have a low bun and nothing too elaborate :D ;)

    I think I've seen a guy with a French braid before, matching his partner's. Definitely a little out there.

    I chopped all my hair off into a pixie this summer and can't think of anything better to do with it for comps, other than put lots of spray and a bit of gel into it, along with a few rhinestoned bobby pins. Maybe I'll master the finger wave at some point, but it seems way too challenging at the moment.

    That's pretty much all I do with a pixie. I found these cool hairpieces that I'm considering using if my hair doesn't grow out (again) before I find a partner.

    I've had the sides of my head shaved (very ballroom-esque, i know!) and used those fake do's ^^^
