Putting your hair up for sports can easily become a repetitive ritual, leaving you with the same old ponytail every time. But it doesn't have to. If you want to change up your exercise-proof hairstyle, there are a lot of pretty, practical updos to try!


Braids work wonders on any and every hair type, they look good on everyone, and they keep your hair on lockdown. Not only that, any braided undo will leave you with cute waves when you shake it out post-workout. For those of you on a tight schedule, this means that you get two styles for the price of one, without even having to wash your hair! (But keep some dry shampoo on hand anyway...)

Top tip - Scrunch some L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT Tousle Waves Spray through your hair before leaving the gym for a natural, beachy look.


Whether it's a ballerina bun, a braided bun, a low knot or a topknot, twisting your hair into any kind of looped loveliness will keep your mane under control without compromising on style!


While it's easy to keep going back to the same ponytail, there are plenty of ways to make the style more interesting. You can braid the lengths, you can braid the front, you can accessorize - it's all totally up to you.

Top tip - If you don't want to wash your hair, spray the pony all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Smooth down any flyaways on top and muss the 'tail for added volume. Pop a headband on and you're good to go!

Which look will you try for your next workout?
