    Hey if you can get through a bad music round that I run, comp music will be no problem.

    Well one of my rounds is a standard round entirely made up of covers of Sex Bomb.

    Awful Music

    I use Freeze It and haven't had a flaking problem, but I also don't use pomade under very often.

    Competition Hair

    I have had a lot of luck doing ropes on extremely curly hair that's long. Gel hair into two ponytails, then rope each ponytail and pin around to make a bun. Put a hairnet on top and hairspray. Comes out like this:

    You're not losing it, DOI, it was. I'm cracking up watching that this morning.

    My team had a newcomer checklist but I imagine it is of limited usefulness to a non-collegiate audience.

    Competition Hair

    The only way I figured out how to do comp hair was trial and error on my sometimes willing teammates.

    Yeah as someone who does hair for my (former) teammates, (including mindputee's!), it isn't a ton of money to do your own hair. Cheap gel, bobby pins, hair net, hairspray. I'd estimate it's about $20 to buy all of the stuff, and it should last a whole comp season. It is practicing until it is...
