Active with Style – Great Sports Hairstyles
There are many hairstyles fit for everything we like to do, it be running in hot weather or tending to house and garden or the many sports activities, which fuel our ambition.
Athletes need hairstyles, which are convenient, easy to style, and also appeal for an all-around put together look. Of course, pro athletes are experts in selecting the right hairstyles for their sports. Who else spends several hours almost every day on training and competition? Three-time Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross (see our photo above) also has plenty of hairstyling expertise paired with all her other talents. The Jamaican athlete competes for the USA in 400-m field and track. She specialises in 400-m distance runs. To keep her medium-length hair out of her face she braids her front hair starting on one side above her forehead. The braid ends on the other side of the forehead.
Styling: Create a side part and start braiding an about 1 ½ inch strand of your hair from the parting across your forehead. Then secure the end of the braid above ear level on the other side using a scrunchy, bobby pins or a hair slide.
Ready, set, go and get your hair ready for training.

Sports Hairstyles – Tips & Tricks
Use an Alice band to keep your hair in check. Alice bands not only hold your hair in place but can also be a colourful and appealing part of your outfit.
Style the hair over your forehead into a trendy quiff so that it does not bother you or interferes with your concentration. Fringes can be pinned back or swept sideways and secured with hair slides or clips to make sure that they don't distract you.
Make sure to use scrunchies without metal parts, which may damage your hair and lead to hair breakage.
