3 Gym Hair Ideas For Stay-Put Style

Fitness time is no time to worry about your hair, but that doesn’t mean it should look that way. Keep locks the last thing on your mind as you stretch into your finest pigeon pose, run your best time yet, or squat your behind off. With these runway inspired styles, your hair will look and play the part of seasoned fashionista-turned-athlete…or the other way around. Besides, looking good between home and the gym never hurt anyone.

 1. Make The Braid. The essential anti-pony gym style, a simple braid is easy to do and resists the sweat you’re sure to drip as you workout. Copy the Balmain look by simply pulling hair back into a ponytail, and braiding into an easy plait.

2. She’s The Bun. The bun is the one, if your long hair drives you crazy during your fitness routine. If you’ll be down-dogging or up-dogging your way through an hour yoga class, even a pony or braid is likely to flop around, and that’s where the ballerina bun comes in. Who knew you could look so euro and get your burn on at one time?

3. The Lowdown. A too-high pony tends to cause breakage on the top layers of hair, so a low, low pony is the new way to go. This look works perfectly for an active day, whether hiking, running or taking in a hard core class. It’s also fool proof!
