my hair is basically always down unless i have my helmet on & then it is a pony tail. its a few inches below my shoulder right now, but it used to be down to my waist. its really thick so it does get sort of messy, i just brush it everytime i get in the car...haha

My hair used to reach my butt. I would put it in a low pony tail at the nape of my neck, or braided pigtails. And then I got so **** sick of washing it, brushing it, putting it up, taking it down, falling out when I rode, getting in the way when I'm picking feet, blah blah blah. So I cut it all off. =] My bangs are just above my eyebrow, it's cut short around my ears and the back of my neck. Shaved, actually. I decided I hate having anything on my neck, I get way too hot. =P The only bummer is I have to get it trimmed monthly, because it gets long and weird. Like now. o_O

I have thick, curly, fine hair that is impossible to contain. Everyone who touches my hair has the same reaction: "WOW! This is the thickest hair I've ever seen!" -sigh-

So I pull it up in a ponytail, plaster down the bumps with mousse an pins, ten leave bangs down to add a little touch to my face. That's how I do it. Nothin' else works, and its impossible to leave down. I could curl it, but I can't be bothered with that in the morning and flat ironing just the same. Besides, my helmet has a little spot in the back to pull your hair through, so no ponytail/helmet problems

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead

Mine's just below shoulder length and its REALLY STRAIGHT! I always had straight hair, so I'm pretty lucky that I don't have to straighten my hair like all my friends do. Normally for school or just a day out, my hair is either in a messy bun or down with a pretty head band or clip. When I'm riding or around my ponies, its just in a side pony or a messy bun.

I have the type of hair that you can just quickly pull up into a messy bun in 3 seconds and it looks pretty. I guess thats why I love my hair so much! Its not much of a hassle. :)

My hair used to be down to my mid back..adn i used to put it in a pony tail or I just chopped my hair off for the summer, so it now is a bit above my shoulders and I just let it loose. When I ride it doesnt bother me when I have it down. My hair is a tad crazy

I have super straight mid-back hair, so fairly long (mind you not waist length like some of you ladies!). If I'm on my way to the barn, typically it goes up into a pony tail (sometimes hat, sometimes not). When I ride, it's in a low bun like thing - you know where you go to put it in a pony tail, but grab it before all the hair pulls through and then double back - does that even make sense? It's like a makeshift messy bun and I make sure nothing hangs down. After my ride when it's gross and soaking wet, it goes up into one of those double backed messy bun things to get it off of my neck. Typically at work I blow dry it and just leave it down, and usually half way through the day it goes up into a pony tail.

I love my hair! I'm so lucky to have long hair, and it's so nice to be able to throw it up into a messy bun and have it look great! Love hearing all these stories about how you ladies deal with it though. I won't lie - sometimes when it's sticky in my face after a ride it drives me nuts! But definitely love it none the less!

I had the same "is that how short you wanted it??" moment last summer, the ditzy girl took a straight razor to my mid back amazing hair and my shortest layer ended up just over 2 inches, I HAD A MULLET! Needless to say I was peeved. Now it has hit shoulder length after all the trimming to get it to grow back even and to repair all the hair she destroyed with the razor. I just pin up my bangs and pull everything into a low ponytail to keep it out of the way. When it was long I would put it in a low ponytail and braid it to keep it from blowing in my face.

I used to just shave my head and have done with it but have been growing my hair for a year and a half now and it's passed my shoulders. I forgot that you actually need to brush your hair if you want it long. I usually just put it back in a ponytail or a bun.

Yeah... I was totally bald for a long time. Hot look for a young lady.

I have about shoulder length hair, that is thick and wavy with a mind of its own. I generally tie it in a really messy bun on the top of my head and straighten my full front fringe or twist my fringe and pin it back. Other times, the whole lot gets straightened and left down or straightened and pulled back in a ponytail with my fringe down. My latest hair obsession is plaiting my fringe from one side of my forehead to the other side and having a very messy bun on the top of my head. Thank god my school doesn't have a "You can't have this colour hair, use these accessories or use this style" policy!
For riding, I pull it in a low, messy bun with pinned back fringe or for competition, I plait it and put it in a hairnet with a nice clip.
