Hairstyles for girls for ballroom dancing. Hairstyles for ballroom dancers

Women's hairstyles for a ballroom dancing tournament must be chosen with great care, taking into account many details.

Even young dancers are put forward impressive requirements for appearance, and points are deducted for non-compliance, thereby reducing the participant's chances of winning.

The choice of styling may also depend on the category in which the participant performs, so you should check all the conditions with the organizers of the competition in advance.

Basic requirements for hairstyles

The photo shows beautiful hairstyles for ballroom dancing for girls and women, made according to all the rules by professional hairdressers:

If a girl is going to compete in a school talent show, you can ignore the requirements.

You can make your own ballroom dance hairstyle for girls -

If it's a professional tournament, it's better to pay for the services of a hairdresser who specializes in such styling.

Professionally done styling in accordance with the basic rules will satisfy all the requirements of the judges, will be reliable and will not fall apart at the most crucial moment.

In addition, an experienced hairdresser will select the type of styling that matches the appearance of the contestant.

It is important that the hair style matches the style of the dance itself.

Quite often the contestants perform several dances in a row, then it is worth choosing a universal styling in the form of a bun at the back of the head. For Latin American numbers, a ponytail is suitable, for a European style, a shell.

Simple hairstyles for sports ballroom dancing for girls can be done in the form of a bun or curls on the crown, but options on the back of the head are also allowed.

When using accessories, make sure they match the outfit. If the dancer will change clothes during the tournament, the hair ornaments must be universal.

Ballroom dance hairstyle with bangs. Basic requirements

Hairstyles for ballroom dancers are distinguished by beauty and elegance. The Sports and Ballroom Federation puts forward certain requirements that apply to dancers of different age categories.

  • Strict styling. The construction of bulky high structures on the head that can disintegrate at any time is not welcome.

For some categories, the use of jewelry, the presence of curls and poorly fixed hanging strands is prohibited.

  • Hair must be neatly styled. Curly strands, if desired, are aligned, fixed with styling products. Short and unruly strands are fixed with clips

  • Reliability and comfort are important requirements when styling hair.

It should be checked how well the strands hold. It is unacceptable for the structure to fall apart during the performance of a dance number.

  • Partners' hairstyles must be made in the same style and match the couple's costume and the dance itself. The use of the original decor is welcome, but without any frills.
  • It is important that the style matches the type of face and its shape. For broad-faced dancers, the updo hairstyle is more suitable, and for an elongated and thin face, a hairstyle combed to one side is preferable. Bangs are often laid to one side.

  • The faces of the contestants should be as open as possible, this will make it possible to see the emotions they convey.

Children's hairstyles are different from adult hairstyles. It is not recommended for dancers of the younger age group to build complex structures on their heads, it is better to do a simple styling, without all kinds of weaving and the use of numerous accessories.

The classic example for them is the low-set bun. If there is a bang, it must be fixed with varnish.

    Choosing the right hairstyle will visually reduce the significant difference in the height of the dancers. If the partner is slightly lower than the dancer, it is preferable for her to make an underestimated bun. The young man, in turn, is bouffanted. But, if the partner is much lower, you can visually reduce this gap with the help of a high beam collected at the top.

    According to the requirements of the International Dance Committee, the type of participants must comply with the standards. There are certain restrictions that apply to the hairstyle of partners.

    • Girls under the age of 16 are prohibited from using large voluminous designs, false curls, wigs and hairpieces, bouffants, as well as bright and bulky accessories.
    • Decorations and accessories are allowed in the Junior 1 categories, but they must also use them within the allowed limits, without lighting effects.
    • Senior dancers can use overhead strands and decorative elements, but it is important for them to avoid excessive liberty and pretentiousness. Complex structures are not welcome.

    Partners of all ages should have a short, well-styled haircut. If the hair is of medium length, it is recommended to collect it in a ponytail.

    Hairstyles for ballroom dancing 2021. Hairstyles for girls

    Everyone knows that an important criterion in evaluating the performance of dancers by the judges is their stage image, namely the harmony of the appearance of partners with the dance style. Often, the ability of a couple to charismatically teach themselves helps to win tournaments. Unusual hair styling contributes a lot to this, especially for a partner.

    Ballroom hairstyles are very specific and are performed taking into account many nuances and conditions that are known only to master stylists and professionals. But if you have a desire to prepare a child on your own, then check out the list of requirements for the younger group "children", juniors 1 and older guys.

    Be sure to test your hairstyle before the competition in training. This will allow you to understand whether the strength of the structure is correctly selected and whether it is convenient for the girl to perform choreographic exercises. Is there a feeling of discomfort, do they interfere and do not divert her attention to any nuances.

    What a ballroom dancer's hairstyle should look like:

    1. Perfectly smooth, neat styling, not overloaded with details. Any broken strand or curl must be securely fastened with stealth and treated with varnish or any other fixing agent.
    2. Be sure to have an open face, allowing you to focus on the game of facial expressions of the athlete during the performance. Artistry in the eyes of the judges always adds an extra point.
    3. Check that the hairstyle matches not only the dance program, costume or face shape, but even your partner's height.

    What not to do in ballroom hairstyles:

    1. Lush ponytails or bouffant, any large and voluminous designs are not allowed. This reduces the strength of the stack, which must be very high and fully withstand the entire tournament without corrections or even minor adjustments.
    2. Accessories and decorations can only be used by Juniors 1, but within reasonable limits and without lighting effects.
    3. The younger group cannot use colored glitter polish.
    4. Any highlighting or coloring on the hair of the participants is prohibited.

    Attention! Find out if the organization the dancer represents has any additional requirements and be sure to take them into account when choosing a hairstyle.

    Useful tips from top stylists

    1. In order not to harm your hair, always use only professional styling products from proven manufacturing companies with a name.
    2. Leave-in conditioner or cream can be used to make hair more manageable.
    3. The gel is dried with a hair dryer in a warm setting, and the varnish is dried with cold air.

    Classics, imprinted for centuries in the hearts of dancers, are hairstyles "wave on gel" and absolutely smooth "bun". However, leading stylists are of the opinion that for ballroom dancing this year the main fashion trends are voluminous elements suitable for Latin American and European programs.

    How to make the perfect mirror fairing

    On parquet, the finished surface should give off a sheen. It is in this case that it becomes clear that the couple is of a high level of training.

    1. Start by combing your hair well with a simple comb, then apply a gel or leave-in cream and comb it tightly with a fine-toothed comb or even a dense bristle comb, as in the photo. Dry the gel with the warm air of a hair dryer.

    2. Use hairspray vigorously at every step. Spray generously from a distance of 5 cm from the surface. Do not worry if streaks form - this is the norm.
    3. Make a ponytail and secure it tightly with a tight elastic band.
    4. A comb with dense bristles in the final stage will allow you to create a smooth fairing.
    5. Take the top coat. Its difference is the creation of an additional effect of wet gloss.
    6. Finally, you can dry the entire structure with cool air from a hair dryer.

    Blondes are advised not to use the gel, as it makes the color darker when it dries. Only water sprayed from a fine spray and strong hold varnish.

    Hair decor

    If you belong to an age group that is allowed to decorate, then you will have something to roam: sequins, flowers, rhinestones, feathers, bright stones, ribbons. More about the last point in the section of short haircuts for European programs.
