I always have my hair up. It doesn't matter how, in a ponytail, a clip, scrunchie, etc. Why do I have long hair? I've had short hair, but it always grows back long...I take the time to style it "just right" walk out of the bathroom and then 10 minutes later I am back in there looking for something to help me put it up. I remember my good friend, Kathy, telling me that she had the same dilemma. She told someone once, "I only wear my hair up when I am working, cleaning, or cooking." "And, that's pretty much all the time." I think of this quote and smile just about every time I put my hair up.
