The chic super high topknot is one of the best for solutions for high-intensity workouts. The example above from the Adidas by Stella McCartney Spring Summer 14 London Fashion Week show is the perfect choice.   How to style this look Pull your hair into a high, tight ponytail and then twist to create the ballerina bun. Make sure to leave a free section of hair underneath to wrap outside the bun. Next pin the style in place and smooth flyaway hairs with hairspray to achieve a slick finish.

Laid-Back Weekend Style

For an easy way to keep your gym hairstyle looking effortlessly cool try a laid back weekend style, the type you would usually just wear around the house on a casual Saturday afternoon. A loose and wavy look with a side braid as in the picture above works well.   How to style this look Go natural with second-day hair, which has more hold or use a texturing cream if you're starting with clean hair. Sweep a section of your fringe to the side and weave into a loose braid before securing with the rest of your hair in a loose ponytail. Try Neal and Wolf Shape, Pliable Paste.
