Been trying to get out daning at least one a month and with my hair being several inches longer than it used to be im having trouble finding secure ways to wear it. Buns are great and i can do several secure buns that dont interfere with turning too much but sometimes id rather not have my hair up. I wore a rope braid today and that frayed out within an hour so thats a no go and a basic three strand gets frayed when i wear it just around the house. So im a bit stuck on what to do with it :confused:. Half ups dont work since the loose hair gets caught in my parterns hands and if they hold any lower it would be sexual harrasment :p.

If it helps i do two step, salsa so far but i will be adding swing soon. Right now a braided bun is the flattest and most secure, the cowrey did well for two step but its too large for swing (im 5 foot 8 plus two inch heels) and hurts to get knocked lol. Any suggestions or braiding or how i can make a bun more interesting but still secure?

Thanks,
Natalia

Maybe try a braid with the end pulled up and secured at the top of the braid - like what LittleOrca did in her post "Depressed about hair + boredom = A 'new' style"?
It looks very nice and comfortable, and is not completely up...

I also dance, ballroom. I cannot wear my hair down because of sweating and partner holding the hair...
I found that hairscroos hold my rather fine and slippery hair very good. They are expensive, but for me worth it.
My hair is waist long. I use a cinnamon bun or a figure 8 or infinity bun, secured with hairscroos. But a lazy bun with a hair stick, rather tight, holds also well. But the stick might get in the way... ;-) Sometimes a french braid. It depends on the time I have... Sometimes just a flipped up english braid.

Gibson braids might be an option for something 'different'.
