    Default No knot hairnets?

    What do you guys think about them? Are they as acceltable as the one or two knot hairnet in the showring? Thank you

    Since they are basically invisible, I'm going to say they are just fine.

    I LOVE them. That's all I use anymore.

    DD loves hers. She has baby fine hair and these keep it under control. Nothing else ever did. She can finally do proper hunter hair easily. A couple other kids in the barn have started wearing them, too.

    I purchased one and could not get it on for the life of me, even looking at the directions! How do you do it?!

    iEquitate, pull it over your head some it's around your neck like a necklace, then pull it straight up so the elastic is down by your ears, and pull the net part up to the top of your head.

    I use one every single time I ride. I love them!

    Love them! I have no idea why they wouldn't be acceptable, maybe in a barn full of teens who are more concerned about invisible fashion then actual function?

    Chiming in to say that I love mine as well. I have a ton of hair, and it keeps it all perfectly under my helmet. I will never own another hairnet.

    my only complaint about them is the colors. The one I thought would be closest to my hair is really light. Other than that, I love it. So much easier than the others to put on and use. I also have a ton of long, thick hair.

    Love, love, love 'em!! I've got fairly thick medium length hair with layers that was a pain to catch in orher nets ;-) I can do it now in no time flat with just the net.
    I agree with jewl27 - the colors suck - but it's okay because the nets are awesome!
    Y'all ain't right!

    Why is the judge that close to you? They look just like every other hairnet from a distance of a foot or more. Is this a serious question?

    I ride with one all the time now! The mystery of hunter hair is over for me! I could never work those other hair nets without having some strays. It is so easy to keep everything up in this hairnet!!

    <3 them!

    I have very fine hair that I am always growing and cutting. When my hair is short, it contains the wispies and gives me the look of hunter hair. When it's long, it contains the strands that escape. Easiest ever to put on, too - pull over face, situate net on top, pull up til elastic is on ears.

    Amazon has them for $8.95. I just ordered one from The Farm House to try it out - www.farmhousetack.com

    They are da bomb! Haha!
    Seriously, though...I just tried one at my lesson yesterday and love it. My hair is that in-between short and long where it is just long enough to pull the longest hair back, but the shorter layers remain untamed. I will only ever use a No Knot Hair net from now on. I love that I don't have to use a hair elastic so there is no bulge under my helmet (or jut below it which is just as annoying).
