Hair, Make-up, and Earrings
Standard Ballet Bun - the standard ballet should be at the line of the ears and flat, never like a door knob. Gel hair thoroughly and slick back fly-aways. Cover and bobby pinned with hair net of hair color. Here's how it should look like when you are done.
Here are some how-to videos for making a great ballet buns:
Half up Half Down Pony Ballet bum for creative ages 3-5 - this is really handy to do right for transitioning between a piece that needs a bun and a piece that needs hair down.
Here's a helpful video on how to do that.
Show Make-up - is intended to be more than your daily make-up so that it's not washed out under the strong stage lights. It is also important that all members of the same piece get the same colors (see make-up color recommendations for your show piece)
Here are also some very helpful videos showing stage make-up application that will be required for Tech Week and Show.
