Confession time! We all like to look naturally cute while working out, right?! I often get these excuses from friends when it's time to hit the gym, "oh no I just got my hair done I can't work out" or "girl this is a fresh twist out, maybe tomorrow". If you hear this a lot from your friends or you have a hard time finding quick and easy work out hairstyles, today is your lucky day. I have come up with four simple and easy hair styles to help you rock cute hair while working out with the help of my favorite products from Cantu Beauty. Are you ready to get started?
First, we're going to need a few hair products! I decided to use my go-to Anti-Fade Color Protecting Oil, my Coconut Oil Shine & Hold Mist, & lastly a little Extra Hold Edge Stay Gel, all by Cantu. These three products can be found at your local beauty supply stores as well as Target, Family Dollar, WalMart and Sally's. Now that we have our products selected, grab a few bobby pins (I used three), a comb of your choice, a goody hair tie and one clip. Ready?
Here are 4 Easy Workout Hairstyles
- The Puff - I call this my lazy girl hairstyle on any given day, but it's also great for the gym. Simply spray a little water throughout your hair, then add in a few squirts of your shine & hold mist, lastly wrap your goody hair tie around twice and adjust it to your liking. I also add a little bit of the stay gel to my edges to keep them from flying during my workout. That's it & it took all of what? Three mins!
- The Front Twist - Chill in the front, party in the back is what I like to call it. I usually like to do this style on stretched hair. All you do is again, add water, spray some shine and hold mist roll and tuck the hair until you get the end then use your bobby pins to secure it. 2 mins, literally. WHAAAAT? We're on a roll.
- The Top Knot- Again, who wants hair falling in their eyes when trying to workout?! The goal for this style was to find a hair style that was already on trend. We have seen top knots from the board room to the runway and every place in between so why not bring it to the gym as well. When I need to run quick errands after a workout and want to look presentable I go with the top knot. For this style add a little water, shine & hold mist, as well as edge stay gel to give it that sleek look we all love. I used that same goody scrunchy to secure it and folded the hair under the scrunchy, didn't even need my bobby pins. This girl is that good, haha!
- The Tuck & Roll - This last hairstyle is a style I found on accident. I was trying a new hairstyle for work a few years ago and it was a huge FAIL. I didn't have much time and had to do something quick so I sectioned my hair in two, added some water, shine and hold mist and a nice amount of edge stay gel and just rolled and tucked the hair adding bobby pins at the midway point and then again at the end to secure the hair. I followed the same directions on the other side, tied it down while I drove to work and this girl had a new style. I received so many compliments on this hairstyle that I ended up wearing it for a week, lol. It's also great for the gym as you can see.
So now you have 4 super easy and quick hairstyles to get you through those tough workouts. You can easily wear these styles to run errands after working out or to work if you gym it on your lunch break. So next time you're worried about your hair before heading to the gym, remember curly girls CAN stay fit all while looking good! All you need to do is eat healthy (healthy hair starts from within), keep your hair moisturized and find a style that works for you!
