It doesn’t matter if your hair is short or long, you want to keep it out of the way when you’re doing high-intensity workouts. This is especially true for those of you with hair extensions

There are a few things that you want to aim for when it’s time to work out:

  • Keep the hair away from your neck
  • Keep it in place
  • Keep your hair looking good even when it’s sweaty

Here are some hairstyles that are great to use when working out. Particularly hairstyles like ponytails, braids and buns work well for all types of exercising. If you’re really serious about your hairstyle, you could consult a hairstylist for more advanced styles. But for those of you looking for a simple solution, the tutorials below will show you how you can look good before, during and after your workout – in the easiest way. If you 

Braided Bun

If you are out running and doing plenty of cardio exercises, you need to ensure your hair is kept in place. There is nothing worse than having hair on your face when you’re running. Braiding your hair before you twist it up into a bun will help keep it in place better.

This hairstyle is great no matter how long your hair is. It is cute and trendy and will keep your hair out of your face. Did anyone say Miley Cyrus style? We love it.

French Braid Ponytail

Braiding your hair before you pull it into a ponytail will keep the bangs and the shorter pieces of hair from slipping out from the ponytail and moving around everywhere looking messy.

Braided Messy Bun

This hairstyle will look great – all the time. You really can’t go wrong with this one. It won’t keep the hair from touching your neck, but it will keep it away from your face. It works well for yoga classes and lifting weights. It looks good sweaty or dry. Relaxed-chic style!

High Ponytail

A high ponytail might need a few hair ties to keep it in place (if you have thick hair). It is the best way to keep hair off your face and off the back of your neck where you tend to sweat during workouts. If you are doing a long workout and going to get really sweaty this hair style works the best.

Headband Braid

If you are concerned about your bangs coming out and falling in your face then you can pull them back with a simple braid that runs right across your hairline stylish and effective.


Pulling your hair into your go-to style then adding a stylish cloth headband that works for the comfort and also sweats. It works well to pull your hair back. It is super easy and quick so you can spend less time worrying about the hair and instead have plenty more time (and fun) working out.

Head Crown Braids

You can make a crown of your braids that go around your hair for all different lengths. It is super nice looking and very functional and is worth giving it a try.

This half braid is messy and works well for exercising as even if it manages to fall out it adds to the look. It is meant to look messy so there is no need to worry about it while you are working out.

Take your style and fitness to the next level. Time to look stylish and functional all at the same time.  Now that definitely is another reason to go and get working out.
