Attempting to maintain your perfectly polished coif during a workout session can definitely be equated to rocket science. However, there are several styles that actually work with your frenzied, sweaty pace on the treadmill. Here are our top styles.
1. Pomp For the Circumstance: A limp, drawn-up fingerstyle is just as annoying as a woman’s formerly relaxed roots kinking their way back to the motherland. A pompadour keeps curls away from the nape of your neck, keeps heat out and can even be worked with a cute head band that keeps edges in line.
2. Braid It Up: A sleek braided pony is a great style to keep hair straight and smooth. Use a thick pomade to smooth edges before braiding, and wrap with a silk scarf to preserve.
3. Wavy Baby: For those sporting extensions, unkempt waves work well with hot yoga, spin class or any other scorching, exercise venture. Prep for class by two-strand twisting your natural roots with your wavy locks. Twist hair into one big pony near the ends and wrap into a bun.
4. Tight Wrap: Of course you know the cardinal rule of maintaining your flatiron is to tightly wrap tresses and cover with a scarf, but do you ruin your style by removing it too soon? Following your workout, keep your scarf on and blowdry around your head until your hair is completely dry. The wrap formation (and tightness) should force tresses to dry straight.
