Oh Hannah, I'm sorry no one has seen this before now. These boards aren't used as much as the main board these days and if someone posts here they usually leave a message on the main board also so that we know to come here and check.

I don't know if you'll see this, but welcome. As for styling tips for activity, I find braids or a cinnamon bun work for me but then I'm not doing high intensity stuff. I'm sure there are others with better suggestions.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
