Having your hair falling in your face or sticking to your neck is enough to ruin any workout. It can often take you out of your flow because it just feels sticky, annoying, and gross. Thankfully, we have some of the best hairstyles that are sure to stay in place during the sweatiest workouts (and stay looking cute). 

High Bubble Braid Ponytail

If you just absolutely need your hair off your neck, sometimes a high pony isn’t enough. Turning your high pony into a bubble braid is the perfect solution. All you have to do is put your hair into your regular slicked-back high pony (be sure to secure any flyaways that want to escape!). Then, take smaller bands and tie them going down the length of the ponytail in 1-2 inch sections. Continue until you run out of hair!

French Braids

French braids aren’t just great for camp, they’re also super practical for the gym. Sometimes regular braids still allow fallout throughout a workout, but French braids keep your hair against your scalp. This style is especially good if you have a lot of angles or layers that tend to escape from other hairstyles!

Sleek Low Bun

If you simply don’t have the time or patience to braid your hair, a low bun will always do the trick. It keeps the hair off of your back and won’t get in the way if you are doing any exercises that require lying on your back!
