Not only is this a great hairstyle for performances, it’s handy for ballet classes too since Ms. Laurel prefers that girls with long hair wear it in a bun.

However, if you would like one anyway, ask Ms. Laurel to color match your daughter’s hair with her color wheel so that you can be sure you’re ordering the perfect shade!
