Working up a sweat can definitely put a damper on your hair, but we got to thinking… there must be some way to style your hair so it can look great even after you’ve been to the gym. If you’ve been wondering the same thing, you’re in luck because we found some! Try these post workout hair styles.
The Bun Hair Style
One of our favorite go to hair styles to try post workout? Throw your hair up into a bun! Bun hair styles are great for pulling your hair back after you’ve worked up a sweat since the pulled back style of the hair allows you to hide any greasiness that may have come about during your workout session. In addition, it’s often easier to style your hair in a high bun when your hair isn’t freshly washed – bonus, right? Of course we can’t forget to mention how easy it is to throw your hair up in a bun hair style. We know after your workout you want to get your hair done pretty quickly – which is what makes the bun hair style so perfect for a post workout look.
The Fishtail Braid
Another one of our favorite hair styles that’s absolutely perfect for a post workout hair style has got to be the fishtail braid. We know you don’t want to sacrifice your style and hair look just because you hit the gym first, and let’s face it – braids are kind of everything right now. Braids are fun regardless, and since they’re so on trend right now it’s even more perfect. The great part about a hair style like this is it doesn’t have to be perfect to look great. And similar to the bun hair style – it actually turns out better when your hair isn’t freshly washed. You can just add in a bit of volume at the roots and leave some pieces framing your face to lead into a gorgeous fishtail braided hair style that keeps your hair back but also looks chic. No one will know you came right from the gym.
The Half-Up Top Knot
Top knots have been trendy hair styles for a while, but there’s been a new take on the traditional top knot that’s gained popularity…it’s the half-up top knot style. It’s essentially the half-up hair style that we all know and love, but instead of just keeping the hair in a ponytail you tie it up in a top knot style. It’s trendy and PERFECT to style your hair after you’ve just worked out. Why? You’re pulling back the area of the hair that likely got sweaty while you worked out, so you can hide that but also rock your hair down a bit.
