 The pony that will take you everywhere...

The hairstyle you choose for the gym doesn't often have a lot in common with the 'do you would probably wear for most other things. The logistics of a workout demand that long hair be kept out of the way which leaves you with a minimal selection of styles to go for. The good news is that the humble ponytail, once again, proves that a simple look is often the best if you want something that can take you from the gym to work to the bar (not necessarily in that order). When you don't have time to deal with your mane post-workout, a pony only requires a couple of adjustments for the outside world. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated, just a few touch-ups that will revive your style in no time! Follow the tutorial below to find out how to adapt your 'do...

Step one
For your yoga session/spin class/kick-boxing lesson/aqua bike session/run, tie your hair up into a high-ish pony.

Step two
When you're done (and showered), let your hair down. Spray the roots on top with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and massage with your fingertips to build height.

Step three
Next, switch your exercise headband for one that's more pretty than practical and tie your hair up into a pony again. Use your fingertips to muss the hair on the top and sides of your head, and brush the pony through. If frizz is an issue, use a serum or hair oil to tame your ponytail.

Step four
Complete the look with a generous mist of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set.

Top tip - To give your pony a seriously pulled-together finish, take a piece of hair from the pony, wrap it around the hair tie and pin underneath. A quick sweep of lipstick never hurts either...

There you have it. With a few simple alterations, no one need ever know you worked out with (more or less) the same hairstyle!
