My Favourite Hairstyle For Working Out

Hi everybody!

As some of you may know, I play on my high school’s senior girl’s volleyball team this year. Sometimes, (usually! haha) if I am in a rush I will throw my air up in a ponytail, but if I have more time to get ready for a game or a tournament, this is my go-to hairstyle! I first saw Nikki Phillippi have this hairstyle on her Instagram, and I lovvve how it turned out! The dutch braids keep my hair pulled up and out of my face when I am running around, and it is also a super cute hairstyle for school if you are going quickly from an early morning workout to classes 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely long weekend! (No school for us tomorrow and Monday!! Yay!!!)

P.S thank you to Jeannine from Custom Concepts Photography for the amazing pictures! We love you!

I also love how easy this hairstyle is, even though it looks like you took a lot of time doing it! 😉

  1. Begin by parting your on your natural part (mine is slightly to the left, but for this hairstyle I sometimes will just part it down the middle.
  2. Before I braid, I like to pull out a few baby hairs around my face just to soften up the look and I really don’t like my deep widows peak so it by pulling out a few hairs around my face it doesn’t emphasize my hairline haha
  3. Next, begin by dutch braiding (you can watch a tutorial here if you aren’t sure how to dutch braid… it’s SUPER easy don’t worry!) one side of your part.
  4. Stop braiding once you have reached the base of your neck, and tie it off, just leaving the rest of your hair unbraided.
  5. Make a messy bun at the base of your neck using the hair in the ponytail.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 on the other side!

aaaand that’s it! If you would like a video tutorial showing you how I did this, I can for sure do it if you want a bit more of an in-depth tutorial! I sometimes learn better by watching instead of reading 🙂
