I am getting sick of the ponytail. Don't get me wrong--it is efficient and practical. It keeps my hair out of my way, it does the job. But it is getting boring. I think I'm bored with my current cut. Clavicle-length, long layers. Usually when I get bored with my hair, I cut it to about my chin. I'm getting the urge to do so again, but keep going back to concerns about what to do for work.
Im in LTC, so I spend a large amount of time bent over a med cart. Understandably, I don't want to be pushing my hair behind my ears, or out of my eyes all of the time.
I have fine, straight hair. Headbands don't stay in place well--I have to re-do them too often to be practical. Small clips work, but my hair is too long right now for just those, so I do a ponytail for every shift. I usually wear it down on my days off.
So what do you do? Chop it all off into a really short 'do? Are you fine with the ponytail? Is your hair the type that listens when you spray it in place, so you don't have to worry about it?
I see a lot of ponytails, braids, and short hair at work, or people who just keep pushing it out of their face.
What do you do?
