7 hairstyles for runners

Isn’t it frustrating when you’re really getting into your run and strands of your ponytail keep slipping out? Your hair band somehow disappears into the grass and you’ve got a bit of hair poking you in the eye. Urgh!

So, here are 7 runners’ hairstyles that are perfect for keeping your hair out of your face & in place during a run or workout!

  •  The Headband

This style is perfect for winter. The headband keeps your ears warm as well as keeps those baby hair strands out of your eyes!


  •   The Short Hair Headband

 If you’ve got shorter hair which is difficult to scrape back into a pony – a headband or scarf is really handy to keep your hair out of the way when you run.


  •  The Classic Messy Bun

The messy bun is a great go-to hairstyle when you want to tuck your hair back, completely away from your face & neck. This look can take you straight from the office to running. 


  •  Tiered Ponytail

This alternative to the classic pony tail is great to tuck away your hair if it’s layered. It’s so easy to do and requires minimal effort!


  • Braids To Pigtails

This look is a great alternative to the ponytail. The braids keep the hair in place and away from your face – so you wont need to adjust it when you’re running.


  •  Braids To Bun

These braids will keep those short strands of hair out of your eyes when you’re running. The bun will take you from work to run without needing to change your hair style! Perfect for the after work run.


  •  The Bunched Ponytail

This alternative pony is great if you have layers in your hair. The bunches will keep layers from sticking out – it also makes the pony super secure so it won’t budge – even on windy days!
