    Hi everybody!!

    So I went to my hairdresser yesterday and got my hair trimmed and colored for the holidays (back to brunette for the first time since my high school graduation- love it :cool:). The cut looks great- the only thing is, my stylist got a little too razor-happy with my layers, and he cut some of them too short to fit into a ponytail.That's going to be kind of a pain during gym classes. Do any of you know if there is a way I can pull back/tame the layers that 'poke out' of my updos without loading up on gel? I like wearing my hair loose in math classes, so I don't want it to look greasy after pulling it back for gym.

    Any ideas would be really appreciated:thanks:

    -Have a great day!!:)

    Mine is layered, but pretty much too short for a ponytail.

    Go back to your hairdresser. He can help you, either with a style or with some products that will get you the effect you're looking for.

    I was thinking headbands for the gym, but for the updos, I think I agree with Alice. My own hair has gotten long enough that sitting on it is my biggest problem, so I'm not much help.

    Thank you so much for the suggestions- I'm heading out tonight to pick up some headbands at the sports store!

    Bobby pins or something similar would work to help pin up the loose hair from a ponytail, too.

    Layers are hard to deal with if you want an "up-do". I would try some of the spiking gels that are out there. They are not greasy and will hold and you can comb them out without any bad effects.

    I just got a haircut today, and it was free. I have a new hairdresser that I have been going to for a few months. I guess he felt generous.

    I have layers, but my layers are probably longer than a lot of people's hair. My layers are about shoulder length and the rest of my hair goes to about the top of my bra line. And that's after I had at least 3 inches cut off today. I can't deal with layers too short to pull up. I agree with trying a headband. I was just looking at Walmart this weekend, and they have several packages of elastic headbands for pretty cheap.
