i've kept my hair between shoulder and chin length for several years. if i have a not good hair day, i'll use a headband - either stretchy which gives it an 'up' look, or a plastic headband. either way, i usually get compliments, same as when i where it down. you don't need a baseball cap to keep your hair out of your face.
