Re: A question for tha aiki ladies :O) - how do you wear your hair?

I'm not a lady (the beard gives it away), but as I have some of the longest hair in my dojo I'll answer anyway.

At first I tied my hair in a ponytail (my usual hair style), but my hair was still getting too tangled and in the way. So I started putting it into one. It took a while for my wife to teach me, but I can now tie it up all on my own. I find it stays out of the way wuite well, though it does get pretty fuzzy by the end of a class (I have fairly thick wavy hair).

I've had people grab my hair in techniques. Truth is having a thick braid pulled doesn't really hurt so I don't really care.
