Drama-free braiding for kids.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
When it comes to your hair and exercise, you normally want two things. First, your chosen gym hairstyle must keep your hair out the way so your strands don’t get all sweaty, and stick to your skin. (Because, gross!) Second, your chosen look should be quick and easy to achieve. You’re not at the gym to stand in the change room for an hour while you mess with your mane.
Okay, we admit there’s also a third element to consider. You want to look good.
A conventional ponytail may tick those first two requirement boxes but it’s also kinda dull. So, what can you do to inject a little style into your workout look – especially if you have medium-length hair? Here are five contemporary options that are stylish enough to see you through the rest of your day, too.
If a ponytail has been your staple for a while, and you’re not feeling too adventurous, try a loose high braid to slightly mix things up. Basically, this style starts as a ponytail, then sees the “tail” below the hairband loosely braided (think big plump braids) before it’s capped off with another elastic. Make sure that second tie is tight to prevent the braid falling apart. P.S. Casually messy is all the rage!
Another casually messy style is this fast and loose take on the top knot. Start with a very high ponytail at the crown of your head, and then wind the ponytail around its base before pinning. Finally, tug out a few strands from the top. A bonus of this gym style is that it really keeps your hair far out the way, which is great for yoga class with all its mat time.
Keeping your hair back with a scarf or headband almost feels like cheating it’s so fast and easy. This said, it’s incredibly versatile. Change the thickness of your scarf or band to instantly refresh your look. Plus, it pairs well with whatever you choose to do with your hair – whether it’s just tying back your curls or complementing braids, buns and top knots.
You don’t need loads of hair to pull off adorable mini buns, which sit on top of your head, to either side of your middle parting. As equally suitable for a music festival as spin class, this cute look can be achieved by twisting little pigtails around themselves and then tying them in place. Alternatively, if you have a little extra time, braid those pigtails before wrapping and securing them.
