What are some ways to wear straight long hair (longer than waist length) while running out and about to keep it from going everywhere and in the way? In a ponytail it'll still find ways to tangle because there's just so much of it, and I can't seem to get braids to hold without hairs trying to escape. Makes me look unkempt.
Looking up hair styles online doesn't seem to be helping, because I don't want anything elaborate or involving styling products they're trying to sell me. Sad face. EDIT: Also please post instructions on how to, if possible? I fail at hair.
