I don't do hunter hair personally. I just don't know how to do it. But honestly, with today's helmets, I don't notice people's ears at all. So I just put my hair in a hair net and up in my helmet with no flyaways. i ride jumpers.

Fake hunter hair. If you're hair's too short, you don't HAVE the problem hunter hair is attempting to control (by making you look like a mushroom but that's as may be.) If your haircut wouldn't be out of place on a guy, treat it like they do--you don't see men putting nylons on their heads like they're robbing a bank after their round.
You can't see it when people have their jackets on, but low-rise breeches that are so low you can see more anyone but your proctologist wants when the coat's off.
I hate hunter hair, no way could I have something on my ears *shudder*. Plus it's totally U G L Y.
My hair is currently short, so I just flip up my barely fine-haired 2" pony into my helmet. But should I grow it long again, I will definitely be sporting a neat, tight bun at the bottom of my helmet to show in. Clean, professional, girlie.
I also hate numbers tied on. The string totally breaks up the clean lines of the jacket/shirt. There's got to be a better way. You can bet I'll be figuring one out

this might be strange but what drives me nuts is when girls wear tight breeches and extremely noticeable underwear lines. I know some people cant wear thongs and hate them but i think its so tacky with big bulgy underwear lines

If you, Junior rider, choose to gauge your ears, please DO NOT wear hot pink gauges the size of a quarter in the hunter ring...hell, anywhere! UGH! No amount of hunter hair is going to hide those big, nasty, gaping, sagging ear lobes. Gag!

If you wear a hair net, please note that the point of said hair net is to contain hair. As in, all of it. Putting one's hair into said hair net but then leaving a giant ponytail running outside of it with your hair net tucked into the elastic is confusing.

I HATE when you see people in a show coat and shirt in the jumper ring...with the shirt up buttoned (not using their choker). It looks sloppy and unfinished. If you are going to wear a show coat, button your choker. If you want to look relaxed, wear a polo in the jumper ring.
See through breeches. No, I don't need to know that your underwear are striped.
Or worse... especially in light-colored breeches. Sad to say, I ordered some breeches that fit me nearly perfectly (which is not easy!) and had to return them because even with my SmartSlims on, um, I would have needed to wax.
BTW -- SmartSlims solve the underwear problem! I have the newer ones and find they are super comfy even in hot weather.
Camel toes in tooooo tight, ill fitting breeches.
Polos which are too small and therefore show the muffin top.

Non traditional colors where they don't belong, i.e. neon colored anything and blinged anything. Leave that to the Western pleasure peeps please.
I'm of the GM era and really think traditional is best.
