An inappropriate hairdo can prove to be an extremely difficult obstacle during a workout, so you should know which accessories will work best for a sporty hairstyle.
The first and most important accessory that should not be missing from your workout bag is a hair elastic. A good hairdo with a sturdy rubber band will survive even the most intense exercise. With this, you can not only tie your hair into a traditional ponytail or a loose bun on top of your head, but also a fancy braid.
The bobby pins make it easier to secure short hair, especially bangs, which can fall into your face during exercise. These accessories are also useful when securing a bun, so as to protect it from possible damage. The bobby pins are very delicate, so when removing them they do not pull the hair out, and thanks to the different lengths they can be perfectly adjusted to the length of the hair and the way it is pinned up.
Another accessory that is great for the gym is a sports hairband. This accessory is designed for hair during exercise. The bands are made of a special material that does not slip from the hair, but only blocks it from falling out.
Sports hair bands are available in several sizes. The most popular – thin – are great for the gym and in the summer. The material of manufacture provides breathability and does not let moisture pass through, so you can exercise freely.
The second popular option is a slightly wider band that also overlaps the ears. This model is best used when exercising in open spaces, especially on cold and windy days.
Baseball caps are also an integral part of sportswear. In addition to the aesthetic aspect of the cap, this accessory is also a very useful accessory when training on sunny days. The visor provides shade, protects the skin from the harmful effects of sunlight and reduces the feeling of solar glare.
On hotter days, an alternative can be the visors themselves, which can most often be seen on the heads of tennis players playing in full sun. Canopies work especially well for women, who are free to style a ponytail and secure the rest of their hair with bobby pins.
A final tried-and-true accessory that can be used to secure hair before practice is the bandana. The wide selection allows not only to match the ideal size, color, pattern and aesthetics, but also the very way of tying. Classic bandanas are best tied in the form of a hair band with an updo on the top of the head. In addition, it can be secured against slipping off the head with bobby pins, tying the material to the hair. There are also sports bandanas available on the sportswear market, prepared from waterproof materials, impervious to moisture. They can be tied like traditional head scarves, covering almost all the hair.
