Workout Ready Hair: Functional styles for every activity.

 

Say YES to the best athlete-approved easy workout hairstyles. The best bit? They look great without damaging your hair…


Tired of Runner’s Bun? Whether your follicles are of the curly, long, dry or greasy haired variety, there’s a workout hairstyle for you. Here are the best confidence-boosting gym styles for your hair, as rated by experts…


You spin…

Think strong styles plus high-performance products. French plaits – championed by Olympic cycling champion Laura Kenny – withstand high impact workouts and are (relatively) sweat-proof. Add a hair mask, then divide hair in half, braiding toward the nape of your neck.

You swim…

Try a top knot or coiled bun (i.e nothing that encourages tangling) and invest in good hair care. Pre-swim, keep tresses tangle-free with a conditioning treatment and pin into place. Don’t have time to wash your hair? Use a hair dryer as leave-in conditioners reactivate with heat.

You run…

Whether it’s slicked-back or relaxed, think: ponytail. It creates lift at the crown, giving even fine hair the illusion of volume. Avoid elastics and use a scrunchie or fabric hair bands to tie up your hair as they minimise stress on the hairline. Slick back flyaways with a hair growth serum and wear a sweatband on top – the trapped heat will help the active ingredients to penetrate better.

You yoga…

Twisted, top knot or ballerina – buns are a yoga staple, as favoured by celebrity pretzel Kate Hudson. Loosely twist hair into a bun on the crown of the head and secure with hairpins or an Invisibobble rather than elastic to prevent split ends.

You’re going out…

Headed from Barre to bar? 1. Don’t tie your hair up in a ponytail – kinks will be hard to remove without washing; 2. Use dry shampoo plus a hair dryer to stop sweat clinging to your scalp; 3. Embrace the wave – poker-straight styles are harder to achieve.
