Our coaches requires that our girls wear buns. I really like the way that the girls look with their buns. Here is a picture of my DD,
I just pull her hair back into the pony when it is wet and gel the heck out of it.
Big DD is 11. When she was Level 4-5-6, we did all kinds of fancy things with buns, "spiderweb", braids, etc. Her current hairstyles are either buns (with scrunchie around) or a flatironed ponytail. She does these herself (yay for me!)
