can't wear the dread falls pole dancing after all

So tonight I discovered that you can't actually wear pony falls for pole dancing. Or I suppose you could on the pole, but then you couldn't do any floorwork with the pole moves. Below is a picture of some students in an exotic dance class doing a common floor move:

A lot of moves involve the kind of arch that rests the top of your head on the floor like that. And the top of your head is where you have to wear the pony falls (if you wear it anywhere else, it can slip off). So basically I'd be stifled while dancing because I'd have to fight the natural flow that brings dancers into floorwork off the pole. If I did any floorwork like that, I'd be unable to rest my weight on the top of my head or while I try I'd push on the pony fall and couldn't arch without knocking it. And because the dread pony falls are so long, they actually get in the way when rolling about on the floor. So they just make floorwork too difficult, if not impossible.

I'm so sad. I feel like I'll never again experience the feeling of long, flowing hair flying about me and caressing my back as I pole dance. I want my extensions back!!!!
