Chic hairdos that work from gym to a night out

accreditation

Gym bunnies are always looking for ways to shave time off the transition from sweaty to sleek. One easy way is to create a hairstyle that can then take you to the office or off to meet friends.  Braids or a bun are perfect places to start with a finished post-gym look. Here are our top hairstyles for heading straight to the office from the gym. Braids/Cornrows Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 3.06.28 PM Braiding is the go-to look for most gym bunnies. It works on all hair textures and lengths, holds all the layers in and importantly gets hair out of your face. Plus the neat and fashionable look, as seen on celebrities such as Ciara and Hailey Baldwin, will take you effortlessly through the rest of your day. Styling Tip: Use a comb with a pointed tip to part hair down the middle and divide it into two sections. Spritz hair with a dry shampoo or a texture spray, then create a braid in each parted section, ending above the nape of your neck. Secure each braid with a hair tie and voila!

Styling tip:  Split hair in half from either centre or side part to the centre of the neck. Secure both sides in pigtails. On each side, start a two-strand twist braid at your hairline and work down to the ends. Tie off both ends with a small elastic band.  After your workout, use a blow dryer on a cool setting to work the moisture out. Once dried, undo the style. The result is a pretty, natural wave. © Cover Media
