HELP! How do I hide her hair

My 13 year old daughter is in Fiddler on the Roof.  They start dress rehearsals tomorrow and the play is Thursday and next Sunday.
She was cast as a villager (female) then was asked to also take a part of a Russian (male).  No problem....but -

Today they told DD that she needs to put her hair in a bun.  She will wear a scarf as a female and a hat as a Russian.  Her hair needs to be all tucked up and out of the way.

Here's the problem.  DD has LONG, THICK hair.  Her hair is down to her butt....28 inches  long and is THICK a large hair-tie can only wrap TWICE around it.

Any tips/hints/clues on how to get ALL of that hair up and 'away'!!??

You can 'hair sew'. I used to do it for competition.

Can you braid it and wrap it around her head?

 Kind of like this, then the rest in a bun. Or, you could french braid circles around her head. lol

My hair is long thick and curly...but I put it in a neat ballerina like bun on top of my head by putting it in a high pony tail, the twirl the pony tail and wrap it around in a bun. She should easily be able to fit a scarf over it

Panty hose. Get an old pai and cut a wide band out of a leg. Pile her hair on her head wet. Then fit the panty hose over it like a wig cap.

Or, put in best bun possible, cover bun with panty hose band. That should hold in strays. You can bobby pin edges down to her head.

Store bought version is sold in dance store. Called a bun cap.
