Blowing in the wind: Katie Holmes battles with the elements and her unruly hair as she leaves a dance class

Most women with long hair would go to the gym with their locks tied well back from their face.

But not Katie Holmes, who let hers all hang out as she left her dance class yesterday.

The actress was snapped leaving the fitness centre in Hollywood yesterday and looked very svelte in her black workout clothes.

But her long hair got caught in a gust of wind and whipped around her face as she headed to her car.

We suppose it's one way of drying your hair after a vigorous workout.

Holmes, 33, looked very slim in her black lycra, grey woollen boots and grey cardigan tied round her waist as she left the class clutching a bottle of water.

Katie is currently starring in the new Adam Sandler comedy Jack and Jill, which unfortunately for her, has been slated by the critics.

Jack, whose annoying sister and needy sister, Jill, comes to stay for Thanksgiving and refuses to leave.

Katie plays Sandler's wife Erin in the film, which also stars Al Pacino and David Spade.
