So, let’s be honest, we go to the gym to focus on our fitness goals, but we also want to look good outside the gym. This doesn’t have to mean you settle for a messy ponytail. Besides, ponytails can be boring!

We are busy people and being able to transition from the gym to work, play or errands is super important. 

Now, grab a hair tie and some pins, and get ready to re-do your do!

  We begin with a   Tiered Ponytail:   The tiers keep the style tight without wayward wisps. The two bottom tiers can be removed after the gym for an instant polished look.

Next, we look at the Pony Braid: This “do” is the perfect remedy for a bad frizzy hair day- braids also hide ridges. All you do is; tie your hair in a high ponytail and braid it, you can make it fancy by braiding a fish tail. When you near the end of the braid, secure it by tying a second hair tie to the end.

Lastly, if a ponytail, braid or bun is not what you are looking for then how about wearing a skinny sweat band and letting your hair loose.

The skinny sweatband absorbs the sweat along the hairline while keeping your hair in place. Use a small amount of dry shampoo along the hairline and at the crown to absorb any excess oil and brush your hair straight. Use your fingers to lift your hair at the crown, creating volume.

The next possibility is the Pigtail Braids: These braids are adorable and sporty; they keep your hair secure and out of your face. Start by parting your hair to the side, then divide the hair on the back of your head into two even sections. You can secure one side with a hair tie to keep it out of the way.  Now braid your hair and secure the end with a hair tie, then braid the second section.

Don’t feel like braiding your hair? That’s ok. How about a Twisted Bun?   This is low and not-so-perfect bun, a total workout staple. But, when you create a deep part the effects is a lot more flattering. Twist your hair into a bun and secure it with a hair tie and pins.

So even though it really doesn’t matter what your hair looks at the gym, it is nice to catch a glance of yourself in the mirror and be able to say, “not so bad”, instead of “eww! What the heck happened?!” while setting out to run some errands or have lunch with friends after a great workout.
