Heading to the gym to workout? Good for you! Setting yourself on the path to a healthy lifestyle is always worth celebrating because you are doing your part in strengthening your body and protecting yourself against various health concerns. Although working out is something to look forward to, for some women, being thwarted by unruly hair is aggravating them constantly especially when hair strands keep falling on their face as they push, pull, and lift weights. How then can you keep your hair out of your face while you exercise?

Here are some hair hacks that will make your gym time an enjoyable one.

Zipper braid. Isn’t annoying that your back hair keeps falling on your back especially when you’re doing some heavy lifting? Save yourself from getting riled up by doing the zipper braid. This is quite simple to do. Just bring your hair upside down and braid starting from the nape of your neck all the way to the top of your head. Tie the rest of the hair into a bun and you’re done.

Bang braid. This hair style is just perfect for those mid length bangs that often get in the way when you work out. To start, braid three strands of your bangs twice. You should then put the first and third strand together then get a new strand as a replacement. Keep doing this until your desired length then pin or tie to keep your hair out of your face.

Boxer braid and ballerina bun. As the name suggests, this hair style is guaranteed to keep all your hair away from your face and from the back of your head too. Divide your hair into two then braid both sides until you reach your neck. Tie the ends then gather the loose hair and make a bun out of it. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place to keep it from flopping around as you exercise.

Tiered ponytail. No time to do braids? Well, the tiered ponytail is a quick solution for you to try. The name itself is a dead giveaway on how to do this hair style. First, gather a small amount of hair on the top of your head and secure it with a tie. Gather another bunch of hair below it and tie it once more. Keep securing a bunch of hair until you reach the ends. This hairstyle will prevent your hair from coming loose as you workout.

The low knot. Forgot to bring your hair ties with you? You can always tie your hair into a knot without using any clips. Start by dividing your hair into two. Tie the two together as you would a string. Any extra hair that is not included in the knot can be looped into the knot so it won’t get in the way.

Topknot. For long haired women, tying your hair into a topknot is guaranteed to keep those locks away from your sweaty face in the gym. Start by tying your hair into a high ponytail. Divide your ponytail into two then create a bun using only one part. The other part of your hair you get to wrap around your existing bun to keep it in place. Secure your hair with bobby pins afterwards. 

Who said that going to the gym is going to be trying especially when you have long hair? These hair hacks are guaranteed to keep your hair away from your face no matter how vigorous your training is. Do check these out and see which ones work best for you.
