Really? Of the eight photos chosen for 5+ hours of practice and performance, THREE of them are of girls doing their hair? That seems a little excessive and stereotypical.

I actually count 10 pic's... It has been my experience with women that if you wait 5 plus hours for them to do something, that about 30% of this time will be spent on their hair. Seem appropriate for 3 of 10 of the pic's to be hair pic's I guess...

Sorry, Nicki couldn't resist. Totally joking...

I think the pic's are cute...
Belle looks like she is having fun. Angela looks like you could put a bubble up with, "Are you really going to just stand there and take a picture while this lady keeps tugging on my head?".
