The 3 hairstyles you need to know before your next at-home workout

With a new year often comes new goals to get more active, whether it be going for a walk, run, or tapping play on a Joe Wicks HIIT video. As gyms are currently closed during lockdown 3.0, at-home workouts are the way forward, so we asked Sean Paul Nother, stylist at Hershesons, about the workout hairstyles we should be sporting when sporting.

The HIIT No-Budge Bun
“For a lunchtime workout in the living room, simply part the hair and pull it back securing it into a pony at the crown. Separate the hair in two and twist round into buns securing with grips. Spritz the root with dry shampoo before heading back to your desk.”

The Spinning Pony
“Gather the hair into your hands and tilt your chin upwards to get a high ponytail. Work your hands through the hair to ensure there are no kinks and secure with a strong, snag-free hair band. This is the perfect workout hairstyle for cycling or running as your hair will not budge.”

“Pre or post workout, damp hair down ands spritz with a salt spray. Next, part the hair in two and create two big plaits. Then wrap the plaits into a bun, securing with mini clips. When dry, un-clip and run fingers through hair to loosen up into gentle waves.”
