I sing in a band. Its sort of a soul/blues/rock/punk type thing. I like to sing with a lot of power, and work it as much as possible on stage. Thing is, though, playing bars in the San Francisco bay area can be....well....sweaty! 

My question today for all you performers out there, or even just ladies who live in hot climate is: How the hell do you keep your hair from going flat, and make up from running down your face???

I can often do ok with the make up, as long as its good stuff, and I don't put too much on, but one thing I always notice about burlesque dancers or just retro styled performers in general is their hair and make up always look so perfect and complicated, even at the end of an hour of what's basically a cardo workout! 

Bit of personal info, cause I know hair/skin type have a lot to do with it:

My hair is thin AND fine, meaning there ain't much of it, and what there is is delicate, and hard to hold style. This is my biggest problem. I find it hard to tease without getting weird lumps, and often the second a bead of sweat hits it, it goes flat....and I sweat a LOT.

I'll take any tips y'all have...good makeup/styling products, application techniques ANYTHING! I wanna look fab for a whole show for once, without the use of a hairdresser!

Well I can say that with my experience in Burlesque that I've had the exact same problem. I know exactly what it's like to have your hair go flat VERY fast over the course of a performance, especially with the sweat that comes with just performing.

I wish that this was the part where I shared my secret, but I just haven't figured it out either yet. I promise if I ever do I'll share it here, and if someone recommends something in a comment I might just borrow that idea too :)
