Hate hair in my face too =/ Study Geology and it doesn't help having hair all over the place during field classes.
I usually put it on a ponytail, all hair away from my face. Something like this.
Also, I was surfing youtube and came across Luxy hair tutorials
Great help. there is one style I love for curly hair. May help you too, plus its super easy!
