There are few things as annoying during a workout as when your hair begins to fall into your eyes, disrupting your focus. Whether you’re running, lifting or practicing your yoga poses, it’s hard to perform your best when your hair style lets you down. Luckily, there are solutions other than a quick buzz cut.
Before you hit the gym, get your hair out of your face with one of these give hair styles:
1. Classic ponytail
This one’s a tried-and-true favorite for all you workout enthusiasts. The classic ponytail is easy because it’s fast and takes next to no skill to master. The downside, however, is that your hair doesn’t always stay in the elastic band. To maximize your odds of keeping your hair out of your eyes for an entire workout, consider adding an athletic headband. These accessories are specifically designed to keep your hair from moving around when you’re active. By slipping a headband on after you create your ponytail, you won’t have to deal with those pesky hairs that escape and hang loose around your face while you’re exercising.
2. Top knot
If you really want to keep your hair in place, why not try manipulating it all into a simple top knot? This style is an easy way to keep your hair out of your face whether you’re curling dumbbells or doing interval training. However, POPSUGAR wanted that you’ll need to use a lot of bobby pins and possibly a no-slip headband to keep the hair in place and prevent flyaways.
3. Side braid
Looking for something simple and fast? Go for a classic: the side braid. Just gather all your hair to one side, pulled in front of your shoulder, and braid the strands, securing it with an elastic band. A major perk of wearing a side braid when your workout is that if it comes loose or hairs escape, this hair style is extremely easy to fix. Just pull out the band and quickly rebraid the hair between reps. If you’re coordinated, you might even be able to fix it while you jog, though it’s not advisable to try it while on a treadmill.
For those who aren’t great at braiding, Seventeen recommended you just do a sleek side ponytail. The effect is the same, though it might be a little messier.
4. French braid
If you don’t want to worry about redoing your side braid, opt for the more secure French braid. Starting at the crown of your head, separate your hair into three sections and begin braiding like you would with a standard braid. As you go, use your index finger to pick up additional hair from just below the plaited area to add to the sections. It will take some time to learn how to French braid your own hair, but it’s well worth the effort!
However, this hairstyle takes a little bit of extra time – even once you’ve mastered the art – so make sure that you keep your Baby-G watch on hand to give yourself enough time to get your hair where it needs to be.
