So what are these other sporty hairstyles you can try? Twist it into a cute chignon, low at the nape of your neck or high up on the crown. Another pretty alternative is to make a normal ponytail and tie it with an elastic hair tie. Pull the hair halfway through the elastic again to make a short loop. If you have shoulder-length hair, it works as well as an updo.

Want something different? Try this lovely, casual version of the ponytail. Simply brush your hair to one side and braid it loosely. If you wear bangs or have short hair, narrow hairbands can come in handy: they look stylish and keep the hair off your face. And here’s another cute idea for short hair: pin your bangs away to one side. If you’re feeling extra creative, take two pins and slide one over the other so they make an X. Your hair will stay in place throughout your workout – and by the way you’ll look really trendy.
Just one more tip: if possible, on the days you do sport, wash your hair after training rather than in the morning. Freshly washed hair is extra smooth and slippery, so braids and pinned styles will escape more quickly. If you don’t have time to wash it after training, give it some volume with styling or heat protection spray, or even dry shampoo. Just spray some into your hair and let it dry upside down.
