You know that extra boost of confidence you get when sporting a new ensemble to the gym? Well, your hair should get the same attention. If a boring ponytail or messy bun describes your typical athletic 'do, then it's high time you save the repetition for your workout and pump up your tresses instead.
Hey, we understand squeezing in a sweat session before sunrise or after a hectic day at the office isn't easy — but whipping your hair up doesn't have to be hard either. To prove it, we tapped hair guru Stevie Smith, owner of the new salon Smith & Davis, to show us three easy DIY styles that will still look hot well after you've cooled down. So, whether you're a yoga/Pilates enthusiast, cardio queen, or strength-training addict, you can exercise your right to look gorgeous — even if you get a little sweaty in the process.
