3 Stylish Hairstyles For The Gym

‘Tis the season for resolutions, and that means making an attempt to stay fit and active in 2019. If you’re ready to hit the gym, and want to channel your inner Sporty Spice, check out these gym-rat approved hairstyles to keep you looking cute and feeling great!


1. Dutch Braids

A fan favorite at festivals these days, Dutch braids aren’t just great for covering in glitter. Because hair is pulled taught to the scalp, it allows the scalp to breathe during a workout, and is great for those that don’t feel comfortable without some hair to frame their face, as you can pull the braids forward. Additionally, these braids can keep shorter, harder to pin back hair, out of one’s face.

2. High Pony

A Sporty Spice classic, the high pony never goes out of style. Wear it sleek, Ariana Grande style, or a bit disheveled for a softer, more romantic look. Using hair-tie alternatives, like scrunchies, can even help you accessorize your workout attire.

3. Ballerina Bun

Probably the most functional look, the ballerina bun has been keeping athlete’s locks out of the way for ages. The secret to a bun that won’t budge is a smoothing tool (like a boar bristle brush) and a liberal amount of hairspray (my fave is Bumble and bumble’s Does It All Hairspray, because it’ll brush out when you’re done with your workout!).

Final Thoughts

So, if 2019 is your year to stay fit and look fab, try these looks out for your next gym sesh, turn the tunes up, and get moving! Happy sweating!
