Thank you, everybody! I think I'm going to go shoulder length or just above. Definitely ready for a change. Looks like I'm about to invest in some barrettes and headbands. I'm excited, happy birthday to me! emoticon

I wear a hat when I workout. When I get a Haircut, I make sure I have enough to put it up in a ponytail for working out

You could try wearing a headband.

I don't like that way mine looks short.

Your encouragement is greatly appreciated!

I just don't have the courage to go short!

When mine is shorter, I do pig-tails or braid it. Can't stand it flopping around loose...

This is for me...

mine is down to the top of my shoulders and I just let it go wild. I do wear a head band when I go to spin bike class.

My hair is medium length and I just let it go when I am exercising. I would highly recommend getting a whole new look with a bob if you have had long hair for a while. I cut several inches off mine 6 months ago and I felt like a new person and with the weight loss, you will look and feel younger!
Go for it!

I can do it!!

My hair is medium length and I am able to pull it back into a pony tail and use the snap barrettes, too. If I am running a race, I also add a lot of hair spray.

I had an asymetrical bob a couple years ago and I when I worked out I would pull as much as I could into a ponytail and then clip up any stray pieces with those little snap barettes. Hope that helps!

I second the headband idea. I have one from Gaim that has a non-slip strip to keep it from sliding off and it works great! I have super-straight hair and I have a hard time keeping it back in anything, but this headband has been a great help.

I hold mine back with a bandana.

I try to get as much as possible pulled back and then wear a headband to keep it back. Sometimes need bobby pins too, but I would go crazy working out with it left down.

I have a wavy, chin-length bob with bangs right now. I throw as much of it into a ponytail as I can then pin back my bangs when I work out. Not all of it gets into the ponytail.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I've had my hair in a bob before, both chin length and shorter, and I've always been able to pull it back in a ponytail no problem.

When my hair is to my shoulders like it is now I wear it in a pony tail but when I had it too short to wear it up I would just leave it that way while I worked out with a headband if needed.

Me too! I've been thinking about getting a bob for spring/summer. I have shoulder length hair right now, and I wear it up while exercising. I think I'm going to have my hairdresser cut it to a length where I can still pull it back....I have bangs, too, so I usually wear a head band to keep them out of my eyes. The hat idea works, too!

I'll have to google low profile caps. Regular baseball caps look dorky on me too!

what about wearing a ball cap? I like the low profile caps. The regular ones look dorky on me.

I've got spring haircut fever, and I'm thinking about chopping my wavy hair into a bob. But I wonder what I'll do with it during workouts? Anyone have medium-length hair? Do you just let it go while you exercise, or pin it up somehow? I've had long hair forever and I'm used to just throwing it up in a bun. (I've had it shorter before, but that was before I worked out regularly so it wasn't an issue! Lol)
