    My hair is just about an inch pas shoulder-length and is such a hassle, even in a ponytail (my hair is curly, like, it'd do ringlet curls easily if I let it). I normally just keep it up in a ponytail...

    Though I'm about to get it cut off as short as I possibly can and still be able to pull it back in a very short ponytail...

    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.

    GASP!!!! OH MY GOD!!! I would of gone insane! That is why I am VERY particular as to whom does my hair, I refuse to let anyone but 1 do my hair...and I rarely get my hair done. If anything it is just a wash, trim and a style.

    Reason being, is because I have had this happen to me, more than once. I ask for a trim, and I get a new boy cut hair do I understand! I find too many Hair Dressers do not do what you ask, so I gave up.

    I finally found a great one, and I'm sticking with her.

    I have mid-back length hair. Right now the shortest (facial) layers are long enough that they can be swept back into a ponytail if I flip my head upside down to gather it all together. Whenever I'm at the barn, I just keep it up in a ponytail - I hate having hair around my face when I'm working with horses - I like my peripheral vision.

    Mine's a couple inches below my shoulders and it's very thick, wavy and curly. It's heavily layered to cut down on the bulk/frizzyness of it so I can't pull it back in a ponytail well because some of the layers are too short.

    I put Garnier curl sculpting cream-gel in it while still wet (about HALF the amount the tube says...otherwise it's heavy, stickyish hair), comb with a very wide comb and my hair does not tangle at all.

    I keep a scrunchie on my wrist and pull my hair back right before I jam on my helmet. I hate it pulled back, so the second the helmet comes off, out comes the scrunchie and it generally ends up floating around the bottom of my backpack until I have a few dozen in there and then I'll dump 'em all out, wash them and start all over.

    My girls have hair down to their butts. One has silky but VERY curly hair, the other has pin-straight, very fine hair. I use the curl cream on the one and a Dove cream on the fine-haired kiddo (her hair knots like you wouldn't believe without it). They both despise having their hair pulled back also, so I just do the same as myself.... pull back with a scrunchie right before the riding helmet goes on and then it's out the minute it comes off.

    I'm a big fan of the clip. I have those long, thick blunt bangs with the facial framing whispies. The long part is about 3 inches past the shoulders. I just twist it up and clip it. That way if I have to go to town afterward I can just shake it out and avoid the dreaded pony tail bump in the back!

    I wear a ball cap when Im at the barn. It keeps it all out of my face and the sun out of my hair is down to my waist and this atleast keeps it somewhat under control!

    Wish you have an option for "all of the above". It really depends what I'm doing that day and where I plan to finish my day. My hair is quite long, so I can do pretty much anything with it. It just depends what my day is going to look like.

    My hair goes just to the underside of my boobs too. It's either up in a ponytail or a messy bun a good 90% of the time. Occaisionally I french braid it too. I have lots of pretty fine hair, but it doesn't knot very often and is impossible to curl (something I learned after spending 2 hours with a curling iron, hair spray, and gel only to have it pin straight in 30 mins). Oh well.

    Basically I'm pretty lazy with my hair, wash every other day (unless I get ultra nasty), condition everyday, and blow dry when I want to look "pretty" for some reason. Otherwise its up.

    My hair reach my armpits. I just let it go down loose freely (that's also when riding) or collect them up with a barrette. No matter if I'm letting them go down or collect them up, I finish the entirety with a bit of mousse, otherwise I don't use stylish products (except leaving-in conditioner). So I go pretty natural here.

    Here are a pic of me with both of styles:

    Loose freely:

    Collected up (sorry for my tiredness):

    Mine reaches to about my mid back. I pretty much always have it in either a ponytail or a bun. I just hate having it in my face.
