Netballers aren't normally allowed to get away with too much in terms of uniform accessories but the Rawson Homes Premiership's players got to let down their hair, literally, on Saturday.
Dubbo Netball Association took part in Netball NSW's annual Crazy Sock and Hair Charity Day, and players across all grades got right into the spirit of things.
Players and officials were also asked to make a gold coin donation on the day, with all funds raised going towards The Kids' Cancer Project, the official charity partner of Netball NSW.
The Nita McGrath Courts were awash with colour and countless hairstyles and wigs, delighting Dubbo Netball Association president Karen Weekes.
"There's two things about it," Weekes said.
"One, it's such a great cause, and also we're quite strict on uniforms normally.
"This allows people to deviate from that and express their individuality."

Players of all ages took part, but there was some standout looks on the day battling for the title of best dressed.
The multi-colour 'poo' socks of St Chaos were a huge hit while coach Anthony Chapman certainly stood out in his blue wig.
The St Gators 11 years side was also one of the best, with the players dressing up with 'spider hair'.
"They all had googly eyes stuck to their buns with bits of hair coming out like spider legs," Weekes said.
The Dubbo association raised more than a $1000.
That will be added to the statewide total, with hopes Netball NSW will raise more than the $70,000 it did last year.
"The fundraiser we used to have was a biggest morning tea and there just wasn't a lot of uptake," Weekes said.
"Now we have the two charity days. The Crazy Sock and Hair Day and also Pink Day, with money there going to breast care. They seem to resonate really well with the netball community and it's been really successful."
Making it more meaningful is the cancer battle undertaken by Dubbo junior representative star Molly Croft in recent times.
Croft has spent much of the last year in hospital but last month had the joy of being declared cancer free.
"Of course everyone knows the ordeal Molly Croft, one of our representative players, has been through with her osteosarcoma so people can really tangibly see what The Kids' Cancer Project can do and it's helping someone they know," Weekes added.
