Of course I would love to be out there running, my hair flowing behind me. Gently waving in the wind. It’s a beautiful picture…
But alas, the reality is that my hair gets really sweaty during my runs, and all I want is to keep it out of my face and ‘out of my hair’.
Running with long hair
After years of trying to look like Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby it finally hit me: I dón’t look like Mia Farrow, I just look butch. So I decided to grow my hair. And I am now the proud owner of shoulder length hair.
When I go out for a run, I either use a hair band to pull it into a really messy knot, or when I’m feeling girly, into a long ponytail. You know, the kind that swishes from left to right when you run?! And to make sure the hair stays out of my face, I use an alice band or one of those elastic bands you pull over your head. Because there’s noting so annoying like hair that keeps getting in the way.
Running with short hair
I don’t know what it’s like to run with a short hair cut. I suppose it’s really practical, but I’m not sure how easy it is to keep away from your face. And since I go all red and sweaty during my runs, I like to have lots of hair to compensate…
What kind of hairdo do you have, and what do you do with your hair during you run?
