How Do You Wear Your Hair When You Exercise?

Yesterday afternoon Kate Hudson left a dance studio with a purple polka-dot scarf tied in her hair. I pretty much always wear my hair in a ponytail with a bobby pin holding any stray bangs back when I exercise. I don't know about you, but if I have to stop what I'm doing to push my hair out of my face, it totally ruins my flow. How do you wear your hair when you work out?

I exercise everyday, but I don't like to wash my hair everyday, so I put it up in a ponytail to try and keep it away from all the sweat!

Ponytail! I don't like sweaty hair all over my face when I work out.

Ponytail. Sometimes used to wear a headband but I lost it.

For yoga it's in braided pigtails so I can lay flat on my back and a pony doesn't bother me. Otherwise, definitely a ponytail.

Kate looks fab! I wear mine halfway up - the top and sides.... when I had longer hair - I wore this awesome high ponytail -- miss that :)

I can't work out without my hair tied back in a pony tail. Depending on the bang situation, I also wear a headband or pin it back.

inertia - my oldest dtr has hair like yours and I saw her solution in Anna Kournacova (sp?) the tennis player. Put your hair into a high tight ponytail, then braid the loose part, secure the end with another elastic. For some reason this stays in her hair better than a regular ponytail, it is a life saver during soccer season!

I've been wearing my hair in a low ponytail but it's unpleasant and I would really like to find something else. My hair is waist-length and if I put it in a high ponytail, it swings around into my face, and then slips out. It's thick, straight, and slippery so it won't stay in buns well even during daily activities, never mind when I'm trying to do aerobics. I tried looking around the gym for style ideas but have never seen anyone else there whose hair was anywhere near as long and thick as mine. Really I can't think of any style that would work and isn't going to take 15 minutes to arrange. Is very long hair and exercise just incompatible?

Usually a headband, for me since my hair is a little longer than chin length. But sometimes I do short stubby pig tails.

Oh, I kid. I wear a ponytail when I walk my dog. (That counts as exercise, right? Because if not, I'm toast.)

I used to have really long hair but I cut it to make it shorter so my hair can get out of way when I work out. I tie my hair in a low pony tail with a head band to keep small pieces of hair out of my eyes.
