Re: helmet and gear for girlfriend
Full face is more protective, has more choices, and is better looking (in my opinion). I use a Buff to pull up over my head and cheeks. I give my hair a twist before pulling it up over my hair. Keeps the makeup off the helmet, the hair tamed, and bugs off my neck. I then carry a small hat to wear when I'm not going to work. I get a headache from a ponytail, unless it's low on the neck.
So far as comfort, she needs to go try one on and wear it for 15 minutes or so. See if there are pressure points. Different helmets have different shapes.
