I am new to the dance world and have a lot of unique things about me. First off, I am an African American woman, and second, I have a massive amount of natural (unrelaxed or chemically treated) hair. In researching to see if there were other natural hair African American women dancers, I have come to the conclusion that they are very rare or nonexistent. So that is why I decided to post this thread. My inability to do the typical low/high buns is of concern to me as a dancer. I have way too thick of massive hair to execute these styles. So what I am pretty much asking is what can I get away as far as hairstyles are concerned with having an extreme amount of thick hair? I do not wear fake hair so wigs, fake ponytails, etc are out of the question. I am very proud of my hair and will not "hide it" because someone else may feel it is not suitable for dancing. Thank you in advance for your help!
