    Thank you, thank you (bow). Photog credits go to Horsey Nurse, who had a little, um, difficulty working the camera at first, but proved a quick study.

    Excellent. After several years of not understanding the wrap-the-pantyhose-around-the-head-hairnet-equals-perfect-HP-hair, I finally get it. Thanks. My life will never be the same. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Well, um, yeah... I will grant you that picture #10 looks good. In a 1" x 1" size. But... BUT... BUT... If one does a one and a half gainer and lands on C6 - 7 (which one has previously broken and has had 2 surgeries to repair), resulting in one's expedited and rather loud trip to the emergency room, one's hat is unceremoniously removed, despite many protests.

    Bottom line is that, instantly, one reverts to looking like Photo #5, and the distance from the emergency room to the psychiatric ward is all too short.

    But I did OK with my hair. Evidence is in Exhibit A, below.

    The only question is: Is it real, or is it Photo Shop? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif And I ain't telling. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    Now all I have to do is to find out why I have a white triangle on my face in the picture. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif

    Sing Mia Song, you get the prize for tonight. That pictorial lesson on hunter hair may prove a COTH classic.

    Okay, girl, let me ask you this: riding in dark clothing and a velvet helmet with a HAIR NET under it in 90 degree weather ISN'T going to send you straight to Bellvue??? http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif

    Okay, so the camera stumped me at first. Who would of thunk that if you handed someone a point and shoot camera that they couldn't just point AND shoot! But the photos turned out and now the truth has been revealed!

    Wow...I always wondered how people got their hair like that when it was short!

    Quick question: I event and noticed that people do their hair a bit differently. So, why do hunters cover their ears with the hairnet (and sometimes, hair)? Whenever I put a hairnet on and it covers my ears, it bugs me so I push it up over them...I guess it looks more like I am riding without a hairnet, but my hair is all contained. Is it just a look thing or is there a tradition? Enlighten me, please! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I am never cutting my hair! Putting it in a pony tail and flipping it up under my hat is work enough. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif Cudos to those that do this every time you show! And if your classes are spaced apart, can you fit a ball cap over it?

    Dang, that sure is a lot of work for a short hair thing and as a doctor, I am with LH - if I saw that doo-rag thingy on the head of any patient of mine in the ER, you betcha, off to the next office over for a psych check up http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif
    But hey, since when did hair get you a blue ribbon? Find those 8 jumps and I challenge anyone to dreadlocks!

    So what do you do if you have shoulder length hair, but it doesn't cover your ears? It is VERY fine to start with and to make matters worse... it is VERY layered!!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif

    Anyone with lighter blonde hair ever try this-- and if so, what color of hose do you use?

    I, for one, was taught NEVER to wear suntan hose, and I am assuming that means on the head as well. I would stick to a very sheer nude perhaps? Any lighter could prove to be scary, but sheer would be key. Also, the lighter colored hairnets help keep it looking lighter.

    Yes, I agree about the suntan hose!!
    However, we're not talking about with white heels here...

    Regardless, if one wants to rob the local 7-11 in between classes, you're all set!!

    Kudos to Sing Mia Song for a job well done, and I agree that I will never cut my hair either. Not only does it look time comsuming, but it's got to be pretty darn hot under all that extra nylon!!!
