1. High Twist Bun

Clean and cute!

If you’re looking for a style that will stay put throughout your workout, then a high twist bun is for you. To create, start with a high ponytail. Secure the ponytail and then twist your hair around and wrap around the ponytail. This will create your twisted bun. Secure with another hair tie.

2. High Ponytail

Add some hair oil to your ends for extra moisture.

High ponytails are a classic gym style, and for good reason! We love this look for gals who can’t bothered with figuring out a hairstyle for the gym. This is also a perfect style to add some hair oil to the ends. If you’re going to be breaking a sweat, might as well give the ends of your hair a treatment while you workout! Love Beauty and Planet Lavender & Argan Natural Oils Infusion leave you with soft hair and give you a deep treatment before your shower!

3. Messy Bun

You can never go wrong with a messy bun. We love how cute this look is, it’s perfect for some mirror selfies at the gym! Give this style more oomph with a quick spray of Dove Refresh + Care Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo for volume.

4. Low Twisted Chignon

We love how complex this style looks.

One of the more complex-looking hairstyles, this is the perfect style for a lighter exercise, where you want to keep your gym hair in tact. Create this style the same way as the high twisted bun, but you can create a second twist if your hair is long enough.

5. Quick Bun

The easiest bun of them all.

This hairstyle is a hybrid between a ponytail and a bun.

The quick bun style is basically an incomplete ponytail. This is a great style if you can’t be bothered to do too much styling but still want your hair completely off your neck during your workout. Simply create a ponytail but on the last pull-through, only pull your hair halfway through.

After the Gym

Once your workout is complete, you may need to take a shower For those who workout consistently throughout the week and need to wash after every go, you’ll want a gentle shampoo. The Good Stuff Gentle Shampoo is the perfect lightweight shampoo that will remove of excess oils but won’t dry out your hair from washing multiple times a week.
