8 Workout Hairstyles To Spice Up Your Gym Sesh

We all know that going to the gym is no fashion show. It’s about putting in work and a lot of sweat in the hope of getting rock-hard abs. But there’s nothing wrong with a cute hairstyle that keeps those strays out of your face, right? Plus, with these stylish, practical up-dos there’s no need for the faff of a post-gym styling ordeal - simply walk outta there with your hair feeling super fresh and still in place!

  1. · Party in the front
  2. · Party in the back
  3. · Double Dutch braids/inverted French braids
  4. · The classic ponytail
  5. · Messy bun
  6. · Headband
  7. · Short hair don't care
  8. · Bandana

We’re all busy ladies: we’ve got jobs to do, bills to pay, and bootys to tone. So we haven’t really got time to be messing around with our hair when it comes to exercising. Nope - the top of our head needs to be a faff-free zone.

But if you’ve got your slamming hot sports bra, top-notch running shoes and perfectly fitting leggings on point, it just makes sense to make your hair the envy of everyone else in the gym. But don’t worry, these pretty and practical up dos take two seconds. And, if the gym isn’t really your thing, we’ve got you covered too. Exercising outside means not only being at one with nature, but also all of the elements as well. There’s wind. There’s rain. If you’re well endowed follically, it’s a recipe for disaster. The weather is turning your hair against you! So check out some of these absolutely adorbs hairstyles ​to jazz up your workout, and never let strays get in your way again.

1. Party in the front

A cute braid at the front of your hair will hold even the peskiest of fringes back and stop any loose tendrils flopping on your forehead...

2. Party in the back

...And and even cuter braid at the back will hold up all those tickley little hairs at the back of your neck.

3. Double Dutch braids/inverted French braids

Inverted French braids are great on any length hair and are majorly successful at keeping any stray hairs out of the way. They are particularly successful when running in windy conditions.

4. The classic ponytail

Ahh, the ponytail. Boring to some, classic to others. Who doesn't like feeling their hair swooshing across their shoulder as they run?! Tie it up high and feel that hairy pendulum swing! You know what they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

5. Messy bun

And if you don't like that swishy feeling (are you crazy?!), then try a messy bun. Cool in the gym, even cooler outside the gym.

6. Headband

Perf for running in winter. Keeps your hair outta yer face, whilst keeping your ears toasty warm! Lovely.

7. Short hair don't care

Even if you have a short 'do, those hairs still have a way of dangling right in your mug when all you're trying to do is squat off that Snickers you ate earlier. But don't worry! Even super short hair is easy to style once you get the hang of it.

8. Bandana

Nothing is more transferable from gym to street than a bandana. It's great at keeping your hair back whilst doing face-down exercises such as press-ups, and also looks pretty badass when you leave the gym if you just want to keep your hair scraped back and be done with it.
