Best Gym and Workout Hairstyles For Long Hair

Regardless of your hair type or length, these hairstyles are sure to allow you to focus on your workout. To avoid your becoming loosen or falling during workout, longer hair needs more support. Having a functional hairstyle for your long hair also avoids stress on your scalp as you move freely about.

1. Bubble ponytail

A bubble ponytail is a classy version of a basic ponytail. It will keep your hair in place as well as allow you to look stylish. However, it’s best to create this style beforehand. That way, you don’t have to be worried about not having enough elastic ties or the rubber bands breaking. If you want more volume to your bubbles, you can tease the strands and then add a hair tie to each section. However, we don’t recommend teasing your hair because it could tangle during your workout.

2. Ponytail braid

A braided ponytail is actually one of the best gym and workout hairstyles because you scoop all of your hair out of your face. The result? No strands sticking to sweat. All you need to do is put your hair in a high ponytail, use cream or a non-alcoholic holding spray to keep flyaway strands in-check. Then, using three strands braid your hair all the way to the ends and tie the end with a band or thin scrunchie.

3. Workout braids
