Last week, I tried out another fun gym hair idea. Like I said before, I’m making a concerted effort to not default to a ponytail all the time. I’m bound and determined to pull myself out of a hair rut. However, I’m not keen on dedicating a lot of time to my hair. I’m perpetually running a little late in the morning, trying to get to work on time. I have no time for extra fuss. Also, I’m trying to keep the looks grownup–no Laura Ingalls braids over here.
This style took less time than it would take to blow-dry my hair. And I got tons of compliments on it all day.
This is what it looked like pre-workout. But actually, I had worn it on my bike ride to and from work and to work all day. It really held up.
Here’s the how-to:
All you have to do is form an upside-down French braid halfway down your head. Secure with bobby pins, if you’d like.
Then, gather all your hair into a high ponytail. As you’re wrapping your hair tie around the last time, pull your hair only halfway through and play around with it a little. At this point, you can remove the bobby pins, if you have long hair like mine (or leave them in for shorter hair).
Spray to secure.
