Long VS short hair

I just love long hair BUT I don't actually do anything with mine other than leave it down when it's not to hot. I haven't been able to ride over the last year due to injury so I have let it grow. Will be riding again back to my a full riding schedule like I normally would do it but will have to cut it again which means no shorter than shoulder length.

How many of you have long hair and how do you handle it when going at the barn?

For those of you who have short hair, how do YOU manage with the shorter length?

Alright me with longer hair:

I normally have it about shoulder length, in the winter months, it's a little longer than I would like now, I need to get it cut. My hair is SUPER thick, so it's getting to the point where I can't stand it on the back of my neck because I sweat so much. That and I HATE the wave that I have in it.

Me with short hair:

Of course I hate both pictures, but that's neither here nor there lol. With shorter hair, I normally have an inverted bob. I have a problem with keeping my bangs outta my face, so I'll almost ALWAYS have those up, because I can't stand to have them cut. Lol

I swear I love having long hair but sometimes

Another thing I don't really understand is this. For showing how do those who have long hair manage their hair? Because as far as I am concerned (I have a charles owen) my helmet fits perfectly to my head. There is no way I am putting hair in my helmet, especially right now as my hair would be to long. Will be even more difficult next year as I don't plan on cutting it(except for the random trim).

Would love to get more input on this one.

Mine isn't too long, it's only about to my shoulders. LOL! Easy to manage.
When I ride (& esp. In the heat) I pull it into a ponytail or neat bun.

I pony tail it with one of those hairnet things... with the bow... english and western I just pony tail it........... I own about 10 baseball caps and I never leave home without one because my hair is really thin and naturally curly so it ends up all over the place and it's really really messy after I ride. Mine is like..

Here...I'll put my fat face on to.... Don't laugh too hard

PS.. Moxie... I like you your hair dark... course I like ti light too... It looks REALLY thick!

I have long hair and at the barn, it has to go up in a pony tail or bun because it just gets in the way! I haven't shown yet so I don't know what I'm going to do about that. My hair is thick so I can't imagine stuffing it up underneath my helmet!! Lol, that's just funny to even think about it!

Here's my hair:

Its actually a little longer than that now.

My hair looks to be the same length as yours Kelly.

When i'm at the barn, it's in a bun, out of my face, and off of my neck. Before I put my helmet on, I let it down and put it in a loose pony tail.

Just today I was thinking about cutting it because its thick and at times, unmanageable

I don't show, so I can't help you there. Sorry.

I havent had my hair long in years cause mine is really thick and is does get hard to deal with and it gets on my nerves so for the past like 3 years I have kept it pretty short with a bob and I love it I can still put it in A pony tail and I can wear it down but now I think im going to let it grow back out lol I was looking at pics the other day and it just made me miss my long hair so i'm going to try to get it to grow out again :)
