Pretty hairstyles that stay out of your eyes but also stay put
June 16, 2014 4:59 PM Subscribe
I’m looking for ideas for pretty things to do with my hair so that it’s mostly down but stays put and doesn’t get in my eyes during physical activity. I usually use something like a Hipsy
headband for this purpose, but I would love something a bit more interesting and/or sophisticated.

I'm looking for ideas that keep at least some of the hair down and flowing (so not a straight-up bun or ponytail or full updo), but still keep hair out of the eyes during moderate to vigorous exercise (usually dancing).
I’ve found some hair tutorials, but they seem to be predicated on sitting still at a lawn party, not on moving around and sweating. What kind of styles should I search for? Also, what is the secret to getting the hair to stay where you put it? Lots of bobby pins? Hairspray? I would love step-by-step tutorials (pictures or videos would be even better!). I am currently very unskilled at hair-related things, but I am willing to try anything.
Other pertinent details: my hair is very thick and a few inches past my shoulders.
