Athleisure style has been a trend for a while now. You’ve probably seen the fusion between traditional gym wear being paired with everyday clothes. It got us thinking…why can’t that combination be applied to our hair, too? We made it our mission to find ways to take your hair from the gym to the office, because sometimes you REALLY need to make the transition and sometimes you want to keep your hair look as easy as possible. Fortunately, we found some great hair tips to help you take your hair from the gym to the office and we think you’re going to start adding these to your hair arsenal.
Half up Messy Bun
Gym hair generally means hair that’s not so perfect. Whether you were actually spending time at the gym, or you’re just in that athleisure mood one of our favorite ways to take your hair from the gym to the office is with a half up messy bun. Messy buns are generally an easy go to, but we’re fusing the gym and the office here. The great thing about messy bun hair styles is your hair doesn’t need to be perfect, and it gives that casual cool vibe when it’s NOT perfect. Pulling your hair back into a half up style allows you to hide hair that may not be freshly washed, too.
Low Ponytail Braid
When you’re low on time and don’t have the means to wash/style your hair perfectly a low ponytail braid is another perfect gym to office option. The thing about low ponytail braids is they tend to stay in place, and look better when your hair isn’t perfectly styled. So whether you’re on second or third day hair, or you’re trying to style your hair presentably after the gym it’s super easy. Of course, it’s pretty quick to style which is also a major bonus if you ask us. Whatever texture your hair is already in, add a bit of volume by teasing the roots of your hair and simply style the hair into the low ponytail braid. It really can be styled in mere minutes!
Above, we mentioned how great messy buns are when you’re on the go. But when you’re heading into the office, you want something that’s a little more sophisticated than your typical messy bun. Pulling your hair back in a sleek topknot is a great alternative. You don’t need to worry about your hair texture being perfect because you’re slicking it back into a ponytail. It’s really up to you and your personal preferences on how you want to style the top knot. If you want a more traditional hair style the classic bun paired with the slicked back style is perfect. But if you’re into something a bit more edgy, opting for a little more undone topknot style is another alternative to try out. The point is, you can have fun with this look, once you’ve slicked back your hair no one will know you’re heading to the office straight from the gym.
