Gymnastics Hair for Competitions

Updated October 24, 2022 – Nb

The gymnast should look well-groomed for a meet. Hair shoulder length or longer should be tied back and secured so that it is not in the gymnast’s face. Excessive use of hairspray and glitter are not required and are up to the gymnast’s preference. Please be aware that certain hairstyles, bows, and clips can impede the gymnast while performing. Buns and clips are not required, but braids or “space buns” are great options. Hair should not touch the ground when the gymnasts does a handstand, etc.
