Hair Ideas for Riding?

Hello horse people!
So I'm not sure if this is a problem for anyone else, but I have a heck of a time with my hair when it comes to riding. Low ponytails and french braids work sometimes, but it's fun to switch things up every once in a while! (My hair is about an inch or so past bra strap length if that matters at all) I do use a helmet most of the time, but the most important thing for me is that the hairstyle doesn't move much during trail rides. Thanks for any ideas! :)

Ew I feel you there, I have hair that almost touches my butt and it gets in the way of everything. For lessons I roll it really tight into a small bun at the bottom on my neck. It sits, isn't uncomfortable, and it doesn't come out half way through the ride. I reckon it looks horrid, but I don't care

If your hair bothers you when you ride, why not just tuck it into the helmet? I used to ride with it out, but it's long and annoying and I tuck it up for shows anyway, so why not schooling too? =)
