HAIR SUPPLIES

Hair must be done upon arrival at the theater. No exceptions.

 

All girls must have and bring to theater for touch ups:

1. Spray bottle of water

2. Hair elastics

3. Bobby pins that match hair color

4. Hair nets that match hair color

5. Gel

6. Hair Spray

7. A Fine Bristled Brush (to keep hair from having lumps)

 

Boys: Gel and Comb, hair spray,  hair elastics for long hair (must match hair color)

 

STYLES:

Street Scene Girls: hair piece applied to bun (provided), no bangs

Toddler/Young/Teen Jesus: Hair slicked back in low ponytail, no wispies, use lots of gel and hairspray

All Boys and Men: Hair combed neat and out of the face and eyes, hair gel should be used

All Girls Primary - Level 7: High bun, bangs slicked back, no wispies; use lots of gel and hairspray

Ekklesia Ladies: High bun, bangs slicked back, no wispies, use lots of gel and hairspray

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFORMANCE BUN:

  • The best way to put the dancer's hair in a proper bun is to start with the hair wet, preferably dirty (not freshly washed hair) and lots of gel.   Work lots of gel through all of the hair.  Brush out with a fine bristled brush into a high ponytail.
  • The pony tail must be properly positioned. Take your hands and place them under the dancers chin and follow diagonal to the back of the head. Where the hands meet is where the center of the pony tail needs to be. Always use two ponytail holders that match the hair color of the dancer.
  • Once the ponytail is made, rub a handful of more gel into the ponytail. Divide sections of hair – if the dancer has thick hair, usually six sections will work. If the hair is thin, fewer sections will be necessary. Take a section and twist the hair, then coil the twisted piece around the ponytail using thick-end, big open hair pins. Catch the outside edge of each section and flip the hairpin in tight. Repeat using a section of hair from the opposite side of pony tail.
  • Continue until all hair is coiled up, creating a rosette-style bun. Wrap two hair nets matching the dancer's hair color around the bun and pin in place. If there are still wispies spray water onto the hair and slick back with gel, then brush back use a fine-toothed comb and secure with closed bobby pins that match the dancer's hair.  Spray with extra hold hairspray.
