Fashionistas take pride in their looks, from head to toe. Women are realizing that the sacrifice of their bodies to have hype hair is not cute, or that starving themselves to keep a flat tummy is not good either. Here are five ways you can spend time at the gym and step out with your hair still in place and looking great!

Look Pretty In Your Ponytail

Ponytails can be sexy, flirty, simple, and chic. If your locks are long, you cannot really go wrong with this style.

Take a flat brush, spray a high shine, holding spritz on it, and brush your hair into a ponytail. International creative consultant for John Frieda, Harry Josh, suggests that the ponytails should be at eye level and to pull out some strands of hair in the front to hang naturally, “A wispy, piecy look is sexy,” says Josh. It also holds well while you’re aerobicizing or working with weights.

Exercise The Weave

Are you gearing up for a boot camp or exercise retreat? Cheat. Give your real hair a break, add some locks, and create a style that you’ve had your eye on. Owner of J Spot Salon in Atlanta, GA, celebrity weave pro Derek J, said, “A weave is great because it gives your natural hair and edges a rest and allows your hair to grow.”

Be Fabulously French

Straight styles can easily be pulled back into a modern braid. Gently tease your hair behind your ears, create a bump by taking hair from the section between your temples, and pin it back with a comb. Take the remainder of the hair and create one cute French braid. To keep your locks in place while you’re sweating at the gym, be sure to spritz beforehand with a little bit of hair spray.

Dramatize The Schoolgirl In You

Separate your tresses into two equal sections, pull hair forward, covering your ears and secure the pigtails. This style is flowy and foxy as you keep finger combed hair out for a bang effect during your workout. Remember, earlobes should be covered.

Short, Stylish and Glam

Halle Berry, an Oscar winning actress, sports naturally chic and short styles. She has always made headlines for her looks. For these styles, pulling it in a braid will not work, yet scarves can look tacky. What is the alternative? When you have hair with star power, let your gorgeousness flow. Working out creates a humid environment, spray your stylish look with an anti-humidity spray or anti-humidity pomade before your exercise session.
