Now a lot of people would argue that the hardest part of going to the gym is motivating yourself to actually go to the gym…and I have to wonder; do they have the hair wash struggle too? Discovering post workout hairstyles that allow you to avoid washing your hair and go from sweaty to chic in less than ten minutes is the stuff of dreams.
The Messy Bun
A messy bun takes seconds and if you get it right can be perfectly chic. From gym to work to dinner to drinks with a perfectly formed messy bun. So why, when you try to do it, does it look like it’s been slept on for a week (and not in a good way)? Follow our instructions for the perfect messy bun.
How to: Messy Bun
Start by brushing your hair and gently shaking it out by running your fingers through it. Then pull your hair into a loose high ponytail. Your hair should not be flat to you head. If you find it looks a little flat, tease your hair in the upper half of the length using a paddle brush. This will add some texture and add to the messy effect. Then split the ponytail into 3 sections and tease to add texture and volume. Wrap the sections roughly into a bun and add a little hair spray. Voila –your perfect post workout hairstyle.
The Sleek Ponytail
The easiest and arguably chicest, sleekest and quickest of all post workout hairstyles is the sleek ponytail. The sleek ponytail is appropriate for any event, from gym, to work, to date night and even to the red carpet –as proven by GiGi and Bella Hadid, Taylor Hill and Beyonce (amongst others).

The easiest way to do this is to tip your head upside down. Then use a paddle brush to sweep all your hair to one point. When you’re the right way up again, use a comb to sleek it down further and tie it with a hair tie. Make the ponytail even sleeker, using our End Split Ends serum for healthier looking length.
