Styling your hair is one of the worst parts of working out at a gym. It can be pretty torturous to try to find a hairstyle that works after you’ve worked out, whether your hair is just greasy and you don’t have time to wash it, or if your hair is wet and you don’t have a lot of time to style it. If you’re looking for the best post-workout hairstyles, look no further than this list!
1. The Ponytail Fake out
By now you’ve probably seen the ponytail hack where you hide a smaller ponytail underneath your actual ponytail to make your hair look longer than it actually is. While it’s great for making your hair look longer, it’s even greater after a morning at the gym. If your hair is really sweaty underneath most of your hair, it can be easily hid underneath your actual ponytail with this trick.
2. The Sock Bun
If you wash your hair at the gym but don’t want to style it, the sock bun is for you. After your hair is dry, throw it into a sock bun and go about your regular day. By lunchtime, you can take out your bun and have gorgeous, full curls for the rest of the day.
3. Messy Side Braid
If you don’t have the patience to style your hair after you leave the gym, throw it into a side braid. Side braids are perfect for after the gym because they’re meant to look messy. You can easily throw it into a braid in a few seconds and look so chic and put-together. It’s the answer to every lazy girl’s problem!
4. Simple Low Bun
If messy isn’t really your thing, go for a sleek, low bun instead. The more sleek it is, the more put-together you’ll look, and the low bun is easy to put together in a few minutes. You can go from the gym to the boardroom in a matter of minutes with this easy and gorgeous look!
5. Add Braids to Your Signature Style
If you have a hairstyle that you always go for when you’re in a hurry, especially when you’re leaving the gym, but you’re sick of it, try a simple fix. Add braids. Whether you add a french braid to the front of your hair or you simply want to throw a braid around your bun, adding braids will add so much life to your hair! Plus, people will think you spent so much time on a look that took you a few minutes!
6. Play up Your Texture
I think one of the most gorgeous styles you could do is to just play up your natural hair texture. Spritz in some sea salt spray or hair spray to give your hair a tousled look, and leave the gym looking like you’re about to go model on a beach somewhere! This is also definitely the easiest style, which is why I love it so much!
7. Braid Ponytail
Do you remember that hairstyle from your school days that was simply a french braid that went down your entire head? If you loved it back then, bring it back. However, this time, when the french braid is supposed to turn into a regular braid, stop the braid and turn it into a ponytail. It’s the perfect active look for the active girl!
