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!
