Will long hair get in my way when I do yoga?

Beware Your Hair

If you have long hair, your yoga apparel must-have list to take to a class should include headbands, barrettes, and ponytail holders to keep your hair away from your face. Because so much of yoga involves bending and twisting, long hair flapping in your face will distract you and may interfere with your breathing as well. Even if you have short or medium-length hair, you may want to use a headband or barrettes to keep layers of hair off your face so you are not distracted by it during inversion poses or forward bends.
