|Play after yoga class. This is my current bun for yoga, but it won't work for all practices.|
Depending on the activity, a high bun works perfectly. During runs and most yoga practices a bun keeps my hair away from my face and dry. But there are times in yoga when headstands and other inversions won't work with a high bun. I've adjusted the height, but I still end up removing the bun before my practice is done, which I find annoying.
|My last resort: Princess Leia|
Before I channel Princess Leia, I think I am going to try braiding my hair. I don't have a particular style in mind, but it needs to be easy because I don't braid so well right now. That leads me to a classic: two french braids that can be tucked at the ends. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
I will also be in the pool more this year, which is my biggest concern. I think smaller braids under a cap will work best. I hope pinning the braids down will create a smoother surface for a cap to fit tighter.
During my initial research, I landed at Speedo to find their Fatskin3 Hair Management System. Apparently, Speedo has created a fabric cap to hold long hair in place under their competition swim caps. At $30 for this piece alone, I'm guessing it would work well under wigs, too.
