Posted by Kayce Sebree on

Raise your hand (or do a burpee) if one of your New Year's resolutions was to be healthier? We get it, #fitness is a real thing we should all do more but there's also Netflix and chill. The comfort of your bed, working overtime, book (aka. wine) club... the list of excuses goes on and on. Here are 10 hairstyles to help you look cute at the gym and boost your motivation, spritz on Strong Hairspray and they're sure to last through any workout.

The Upgraded Pony - Here's a twist on the classic ponytail. Follow this tutorial from Brit+Co to get the look. After your workout, spritz with Volume Spray and you're good to head to the office.

Workout hairstyle: braided bun

The Braided Bun - We love the hair tutorials from Camille Styles, this one included. This one mixes two of our go-to styles, braid + bun, for the perfect gym look. Bonus? After a good sweat, you can take your hair out of this look, dry shampoo the roots and spritz on some texture spray and viola! Messy wavy perfection. Looking for a good texturizing spray to achieve this style? Check out Volume Dry Texture Spray! It supplies natural, lived-in texture for an updo that'll stay all day long.

Workout hairstyle: braid and ponytail combo

The Perfect Combo - Another great look that combines the classics, half braid + half pony. A little dry shampoo + Volume Spray to refresh afterwards and you can take this look to brunch. In the market for a new dry shampoo that actually makes your hair look and feel clean? We've got a few that'll do the trick!

Workout hairstyle: ponytail

The Twisted Pony - The ponytail is a go-to and here's a literal twist on a classic and apparently is known as the "licorice braid." Tutorial here

Workout hairstyle: low bun

The Low Bun - This one is quick, simple and a classic... what more do you need? Combo dry shampoo and a hair perfume after working out and you could head out on a date night (although you should probably take a quick body shower if you're hoping for a follow-up date). Check out how to get this look here

Workout hairstyle: triple ponytail

The Triple Upgraded Pony - This looped ponytail look from Refinery29 is great for girls with longer hair or layers. We also think it's pretty dang cute so you can run a blowdryer towards it and wear it after the gym too. Run some Ghost Oil through the ends and you're ready for anything.

Workout hairstyle: twisted side braid

Twisted Side Braid - This look could honestly be for any occasion, even a fancy party, but we think it would work great for the gym too. Keeps your bangs out of your face, all while looking stylish and wearable to any after-gym activity. Full tutorial here

Cute Low Buns - Wanting to switch it up from a pony or braid? Here's a quick and fun look. Check out how to wear pigtails as an adult in these tutorials from Brit+Co here

Workout hairstyle: small ponytail

The Small Details Pony - Instagram is also an amazing place to find daily inspiration, here's a look we found on Riawni Capri's insta. You can take this look from gym to glam by adding Volume Spray to the pony + Ghost Oil on the top, after your workout. 

Workout hairstule: Dutch braid bun

The Dutch Braid Bun - Really going to sweat? This style is great to keep your hair out of your face during any workout. Tutorial here!
