Do you have short layers or angles that may not fit into a ponytail?
Don’t fret! We’ve created a few layer friendly, versatile looks that survive even the sweatiest workouts.
- Switch it up! Two strand rope twists emulate a braid but are much easier to achieve on yourself. They will save your blowout and hide shorter angles while you’re sweating it out in the gym. Best part? Take it out once the sweat has dried off your hair and you will have soft waves.
- Elevate the tried and true ponytail by doing a Mohawk braid down the middle. Braiding the hair in between the arches of your brows to the crown of your head hides those shorter pieces and adds some fun and personality to the pony.
- The most popular gym ‘do’? A messy bun! The secret ingredient here is to add a mask to the ends of the hair before your workout. As your scalp generates heat from perspiring, the hair cuticle opens up and really absorbs all those great conditioning properties. Avoid getting the mask on the roots so you can keep the messy texture and not look greasy!
So next time you have to ask yourself “Is this gym/studio appropriate?” keep an open mind along with these hairstyles in your back pocket.
