Creating a Dancer’s Hair Kit
Dancers are known for their flawless makeup and hair when performing. Regardless of the type of dance, they’re always decked out and looking flawless. One popular thing that can be helpful for competitive dancers is to acquire a hair kit. A hair kit is filled with hair items that will help the dancer to achieve all her necessary hair looks throughout any competitive dance day. Since many competition days are jam packed with different outfit changes and dances, the last thing you want to worry about is if you have enough bobby pins or the right hair care items to do your quick changes. We all know being prepared and organized is incredibly helpful in every area of our lives, and well that doesn’t change with a dancer’s hair needs! We’re sharing a few things to consider when creating your own dancer hair kit.
Pack the Essentials
You’re going to want to make sure you have plenty of the hair care essentials. Items like elastic bands and bobby pins are a give-in, so make sure that your hair kit is stocked with plenty of these. Additionally, you’re going to want to be sure you have plenty of hairspray. If you’re an experienced dancer you’ve probably experimented with plenty of different hairspray formulations, pack your favorite formula and make sure to keep refills on hand at home so you can restock easily.
Most dancers have additional accessories for their hair looks. Once you know whatever accessories you need for your dances, add them right into your hair kit. It’s important to keep all your hair items together, so every time you wear them, make it a habit to put them back into your hair kit after use so that you always know where they are. This goes for any pins, headbands, or bun shapers – anything that’s an accessory or something that you’re adding to your hair.
Again once you know what hair looks you’re going to need to achieve for your dances, get the proper tools and add them to your hair kit. When creating a hair kit, even if you have the tools it’s not a bad idea to purchase another one to have just for your kit. This way everything is together all the time and you’re less likely to forget something when it’s a habit to put it back into your kit or always have it there.
Have an Organizer
Since you’re creating a hair kit, you’re going to want something to carry all of these items around with you in an organized way. Find a tote bag or bin of some kind that’s easy to carry, but allows you to store everything in a very organized manner. This will not only make it easy to organize, but easy to carry.
