Layered writer and gym bunny, Beth Davie, puts three styles through their paces to see which one has what it takes to see her through from gym, to drinks, to the next day…
That something came in the form of hairstylist, Beth Patton, who works at Jones & Payne in Shoreditch. Just two minutes from the office, the salon was the perfect starting point to discuss with a professional my new-found gym hair obsession. I sat down with Beth P (as she will heretofore be called to avoid confusion) to discuss key gym hair looks that would a) last and b) work in the outside world. We settled on boxer braids, a fishtail plait and space buns. Which one sprinted past the finish line to victory? All will be revealed…
I honestly loved all the looks, but if I had to pick, I’d probably choose the boxer braids, closely followed by the space buns. Not only did the boxer braids look great the longest (and I think received the most envious looks in the gym – people certainly weren’t admiring my downward dog at any rate), they looked fab when taken out. It was also great to talk to a hairdresser about my gym hair conundrum. Beth P provided varying ways to style my hair at home, but to be completely honest, it was so easy and nice to get my hair done by a professional and not worry about it for a few days that I’d recommend serious gym goers give their local salon a call pronto.
