Style your hair so it survives a workout. These tips in Allure magazine come from Julien Farel, official stylist of the U.S. Open.
Pull it back: Moisture makes hair limp and stringy or wild and bushy, so keep your hair off your face and neck.
Stay dry: A ponytail should start at ear level or above. Higher is better: The less contact the tail has with skin, the less sweat it will absorb. To avoid a dent from your elastic, don't tie the hair back too tightly.
Get beachy waves: For a cute, tidy style that is sexy afterward, pull hair back into a ponytail, secure it with a snag-free elastic, then braid the tail. After your workout, unravel the braid and refresh your hairline with a blast of a blow dryer on the cool setting.
Catch the stragglers: For layered styles, start by doing a tight French braid at the crown to incorporate the shorter pieces. Once you've woven in all the hair above the ears, draw the hair into a ponytail and do a second, classic braid for the ends.
