7 Quick & Easy Hairstyles For Working OutAnother day, another basic ponytail – am I right? Besides making resolutions for a healthier lifestyle, how about we also all agree to start wearing cuter gym hairstyles? Now, there’s nothing wrong with your everyday pony. It is, after all, an easy go-to hairstyle. However, don’t you think it’s time to spice it up a bit? With just a few easy techniques and a few more bobby pins, you can create a cute hairstyle that can go the distance with your gym routine. So, go ahead and add more gusto to your squats, more aggression to your spinning and more inner Zen with your stretching – these hairstyles can handle it. Here are seven upgraded sporty hairstyles that are perfect for working out.
Braided High Ponytail
Turn the classic cheerleader-style ponytail on its head by adding tight, sleek braids to the underneath sections of your hair. While this may seem complicated at first, it’s actually pretty easy. Start by flipping your hair forward and grabbing the left section of your hair. With that individual section, begin to tightly French braid it until you get to the crown of your hair. Pin that section aside and repeat the braiding process on the middle and right sections at the nape of your neck. Once you have all three sections braided, secure the remaining hair into a high ponytail.
Want to make it look even more sophisticated? Use a small portion of hair from the ponytail to wrap around the base and secure with bobby pins. This step will hide the elastic securing your ponytail and add a more polished look to the style. Plus, the extra pins will help ensure that this style doesn’t move around during your workout.
Remember that braiding technique mentioned above for the ‘Braided High Ponytail?’ Well, this edgy hairstyle requires the same technique with a little twist at the end. Once your three sections have been braided, you simply twist the remaining sections of your hair into a topknot instead of creating a ponytail. This style is perfect for more intense exercise routines as your hair won’t be sliding around throughout your workout.
