Workout Hairstyles 2012

With Summer and the Olympic Games coming up; sporting events, fitness and exercise will be everywhere. So it’s only natural that the trainers will come out of the closet and the drive to become fit and healthy will increase. So if you’re planning to hit the treadmill or work up a sweat in a spinning class, here are some hair tips for exercise friendly hairstyles that will keep you looking your best while you get in shape. 

Remember keeping your hair pulled back away from your face and neck prevents your hair from becoming dishevelled and damaged by the water and salt from your sweat.


The ponytail is a very obvious choice for an exercise friendly hairstyle as it is the easiest and quickest to achieve. It also works for everyone as long as your hair is long enough to be pulled back! You can also rock a ponytail with a twist by teasing the crown of your head and adding extra volume to the hairstyle.

The bun is another typical hairstyle to sport when working out. A bun works best for girls with longer hair as it keeps your hair completely  away from the face. Braid the ponytail before you tie it back into a bun as it will make the bun a lot more secure. For a twist, leave a section of your hair out and wrap it around the bun to add some instant glamour.

Braids and plaits are another classic workout hairstyle that works well if you are prone to frizzy hair. This is also a great choice if you are going to be performing exercises on your back since it doesn’t create a bulge on the back of your head like ponytails and buns. Make a fashion statement by plaiting your hair at the front from one side to the other to create a headband braid, stylishly keeping your hair away from your face!
