    No, whenever it was was long enough for a ponytail I put it up. I honestly don't know how the actresses in action movies do it.

    Haha, no, never. Not that I play sports any more (now walking to the garden counts as a workout, for me, and my body genuinely thinks standing for 10 mins is an extreme sport, only to be done if I want to spend the rest of the day horizontal) but when I was younger I always had it up for anything remotely physical. I don't recall having short hair though, apart from photos from my tap dancing exams when I had a bob as a 4/5yr old (for our exams anything long enough to be tied up had to be). Even in childhood holiday photos I have my hair tied back
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    I’ve only worn it down as part of a performance costume choice. Hairography is definitely a thing in aerial circus work.

    I have always worn it up if it was long enough to go up - even if in just a ponytail.

    I remember once as a child relishing being out on my horse with my hair loose and the tangles after were just … so terrible. Now I prefer to wear braids or braided buns for sporty activities. Every winter I see women with their hair loose on the ski slopes and while they look rad, idk maybe they’re the same type of mystical hair-grower as my SIL who swears she has never even once had a tangle!

    For something like yoga I can see being into leaving it down; digging more deeply into the sensory and spatial experiences. I might have to give this a try.

    I always wear my hair up for sports because it gets in the way, especially since I have bangs. I like to pull them back with large clips and headbands.

    They have teams of hairdressers running around after them, lol.

    Haha. I'm such a klutz I'd just spend all of my time trying to keep from stepping or putting my hand on my hair... it's bad enough having my braid flopping around in my way.
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.

    Until it could fit into a decent and secure ponytail, it was loose even for sports. When I had bangs they were clipped to the side.
