Hairstyles That Will Hold Up To Your Fiercest Workout
No matter how hard you try, no matter how many bobby pins are used, it often seems like there’s no hair style that can actually hold up during a workout. Are you with us on this one? Working out isn’t always the most glamorous activity, you are there to sweat after all. But does that mean you can’t rock a hair style that can hold up throughout a tough workout? We were determined to find hairstyles that will hold up to your fiercest workout, because we knew there had to be a few options! Fortunately, we found some and we’re sharing them with you to try out for your next workout.
There’s something about braids, isn’t there? Ah, they’re just great! Well it turns out French braids aren’t just cute and trendy, they’re also one of the most functional workout hair styles. The great thing about French braids is you’re able to style them in a way that gets all of your hair up out of your face. Additionally, since the hair is braided together it’s much more unlikely that your hair will come flying out of the hair style. Think about it, you can sleep and do almost anything with braids and they still maintain their shape. Try a traditional French braid, or pigtail French braids to get all of your hair up and out of your face into a braid. You’ll be surprised at how great it holds up to a fierce workout.
We’ve already established that braids are pretty great for workout hair styles, and top knots are just as functional! We realize that sometimes traditional top knots can still come loose fairly easily and be difficult to really keep the hair that’s in your top knot held down. The solution? Pull your hair back into a ponytail (whatever height works for you), once you’ve secured the ponytail well create a braid in the ponytail portion of the hair style. You CAN leave the hair in a ponytail braid, but if you really want a functional hair style wrap the braid around in a top knot style. It’s a great way to take the top knot hair style up a notch and really make sure it stays in place.
Braids are great, but we know you may not want to rock a braided hair style every time you head to the gym. Another great hair style alternative that’s sure to hold up to the toughest workouts is the bubble braid. It’s incredibly easy to create, too! Start by pulling the top of your hair back as if you’re creating a half up hair style. Secure the hair with a rubber band. Once you’ve done that work your way down a bit and pull another section of hair back and secure with a rubber band. It’s going to give you a look similar to a traditional French braid but instead of the braiding you’re securing your hair at different sections with a rubber band.
