How do you handle your hair??

I was just wondering how long everyone's hair is and how you handle it when you are riding or outside. My hair is almost down to my waistband on my jeans and I absolutely cannot leave it loose when I am outside or I end up with rats the size of........well........rats! I have to either braid it or put it in a bun.

What does everyone else do?

My hair comes down to my mid-back. Or it did until I got 3 inches cut off yesterday. I wear it in a low ponytail so my helmet can fit. Or I french braid it

My hair only comes a few inches below my shoulders, so it's not a big deal. I just leave it down. I have a few sections that like to get in my eyes, so I'll just put them in a quick little side braid or pin them back.

Mine goes to just below my boobs. I just put it in a low ponytail. Mine gets knots the size of rats from just wearing it down at work, so my ponytail is usually huge due to the knots, but hey :]

^^Mine is the same length, I was just too chicken to say it! Haha. I've found if I straighten it it stays a lot less tangled

My hair is just a little bit longer than shoulder length and CRAZY. I have the typical redhead's hair, hair everywhere and none of it is fully under control, ever. Haha

Usually, I leave it down on days that I wash it, every other day, and put it up on the second day. However, when I'm doing something really intense, like mowing the lawn or something, no matter what day it is, I put it up in a high ponytail then I kinda fold my hair over and put another hair band around that so it's kinda a bun, but not. On the second day after I wash my hair, I usually do the same thing.
Sometimes I put it in a low ponytail (and that's how it'll be like 24/7 at camp when I'm wearing a helmet all the time) but I don't really like that because I don't really have a chin and with a low ponytail my profile becomes REALLY chinless. Another thing I like to do is put it half up, tie the hair that might get in my eyes back and leave the back down.

But yeah, I have my hair up a lot.

Sometimes, though, I like to leave it down and go riding without my helmet and pretend that I'm a princess on my white horse with my hair flying everywhere. ROFL!

Mine seems to knot no matter what I do - I have REALLY thick hair though. I don't straighten it too often as it takes forever - When I don't it is crazy boofy, it's funny. If I straighten it everyone asks if I died it or something as it looks so different!

The knots really frustrate me as they are really bad, just underneath at the back. It turns almost into dreads.

My hair is quite thick *well, thin but I have alot of hair*, curly and long. My hair is below my shoulder blades.

I either french braid it, do a low braid off to the side or put it in a quick knot bun that rests in the crevice of my neck.

When I show, I put it in a low quick knot bun, and use one of those hair clips with the hair net attached to it.

My hair is just at my boobs, lol. I throw it up in a pony tail.

My hair used to go down to my bum, and I would just plat it up. All untill I went to the hair dresser and they grabed it, cut it off at my shoulder, held it up to the morror and asked "is that how much you wanted cut off?" needless to say I was livid.

I couldnt be botherd growing it back, so I spent 8 hours in a chair getting dreads. I've had them a year and a half now and there just passed my boobs, and I just tie them up.
