Rasta riders or what to do with hair

To meet the title I guess I have to post some pictures of rasta cyclists in Vienna ...


How do you like to style your hair when cycling? Any experience with messy hair and how to deal with it?

I currently have shoulder-length hair and mostly just leave it like it is -- simply wild and untamed :-). I like to feel the air flowing through my hair when I'm riding my bike. Only when it's really windy I pin it up or use a hair-band. When I had longer hair I used to tie it back into a ponytail as it's easy and it doesn't get messy this way.

You must be glad that wearing a helmet is not compulsory in Austria?

Aren't those extensions? Sounds like a lot of work. And time away from biking.

It'll be interesting to see how helmets will evolve over time. Perhaps through genetics, they will increase the strength of our skulls and we won't need them. :-)

My hair is baby fine and stringy so usually I have to wet it down at work and do a quick blowdry. I've grown it out a bit and can now where a ponytail, which is easy and survives the ride fairly well.

I just leave it loose most of the time, or wear a hat to keep it out of my eyes and mouth if the wind is strong. Ponytails don't work for me on a bike, because the hair ends up hitting me in the face and neck anyway.

@ Groover: Yeah, we are very happy about that helmets are not compulsory -- but not only because of our extensive hairstyles :).

I spend my life in poneytails. A little depressing, but they're just so easy.
