- two hair nets (matching hair colour)
- hair elastics (neutral colours please)
- plenty of HAIR PINS (we need nearly a packet per child)

Remember HAIR PINS ARE ESSENTIAL!!!
This was all for O's first ballet exam. I had no idea when I smiled politely at the nice lady with lovely posture that this was where it would end up.
So off I went down Wanstead High Street looking for essential hair pins and hair nets that matched a 4 year old's hair colour. All was available (at a price...the chemist just smiled knowingly at me and said 'ballet exam then?' when I went to pay) except for the hairpins. Apparently Wanstead sells out of hairpins each term when the ballet exams are being held.
But I found some in the end, and today O spent an eye-watering hour and a half having her hair done by her teachers ready for the exam. When I picked her up at the end of the exam, I could smell the hair spray before I saw her.Tonight we carefully took out the precious hair pins and I am keeping them safe for the next time.
