Headset Hair Solution?

I was wondering how you deal with headset hair? Mainly directed towards guys.

Personally I was considering either doing one of the two options.
1. Get a short haircut or just go bald.
2. Use a behind-the-neck headset.

I like medium hair styles, but it can be a nuisance to maintain and even more so when using a headset. I really enjoy the quality from a headset and I'm not so sure that a behind-the-neck one would be just as good. A good example is the Logitech G330 which is my choice behind-the-neck headset if I side with the second choice.

Also, please link any gaming or hair related articles that talk about headset hair (if any). I've been searching, but it doesn't seem like there's a big focus on this topic.

Lastly, I'd like to know what headset you use or recommendations for either kind.

Grab a headset that has a super bendy Microphone (I have one at home, it's logitech, I can't remember the model right now) - that way you can have it up on your head if you want to, or you can have it go back around behind your neck, and you can just bend the microphone down to work.

As for fixing the hair, A quick shower will make it fluffy soft again (or if you're in a hurry, just burry your head under the sink faucet) and then you can use styling gel or wax to do it up when you need to go out.

I don't really care. If I've been gaming for a long time though, I just lean forward and swoosh it around all crazy-like. After that's done, I stand up and brush it and it looks fine.

My hair goes down to my , and I have no problem with headsets.

Try tying your hair in a pony tail while you play or something.

either of your options would work.
I just removed all the mirrors from my house.

I am actually wondering how the OP's hair gets in the way of his headset...

Does he have a Jewfro that gets stuck on the headset or what?

I have very short hair all the time so the problem doesn't present itself. I haven't had to use a comb in years.
