Default Roller Gal Hair?

How do you guys keep your hair out of your face and under your helmet? I've seen some interesting things done with braids and bandanas, but I'm curious as to what works for people

With bangs, I just tuck them back when I put on my helmet (if your helmet fits tight enough they won't come back out. I have long hair and both ponytails and braids work to keep the rest of it under control

Male pattern baldness did the trick for me.

My hair is short with some bangs, I just put the bangs behind my ear and the helmet over it... And it stays in place, but I (as most of us) have a serious case of ugly post-helmet hair...

xD cute

I'm in an awkward middle area with my hair right now because I shaved it all about 4 months ago and now it's shoulder length again xD. I think I'm going to keep growing it out until I lose some weight again, which was why I was wondering. It's been so long since I had long hair. I bought a few bandanas, hoping those will help!

Once I lose the pudge in my face again I'll be celebrating by probably getting a really short hair cut again, thinking a faux hawk would be easy for helmets lol.

You can also get a Under Armor 'cap' .. One of our skaters uses it (I had briefly as well) its basically the same materian as the under armor shirt, but worn on the head. Its nice and can hold the hair back from your face. The downside it traps heat it, the upside it keeps sweat from pouring out of your helmet into your eyes.
