January is notoriously the busiest month for gym-goers, and if you're committing to better fitness habits this year, then you should do it with style. To help up your workout hair game, we asked celebrity stylist Sarah Potempa to create five easy braided looks that will hold your strands in place in the most eye-catching way. Bobbi Brown makeup artist Kim Soane painted the faces of our fitness blogger models, Chase Lindsay Rosen of Athleisurely and Evann Clingan of her eponymous site, using long-wear, waterproof products. Everything was photographed at the iconic Chelsea Piers, which boasts a bevy of creative sweat-inducing classes. Every day this week, we will be revealing a new look, including this french fishtail ponytail, braided ballerina bun, and twisted chignon.
If you're a runner, then you need a sleek style that will allow you to zip around the track or on the treadmill. Swap your basic ponytail for this dutch french braided mohawk that actually features three plaits! Keep reading to learn how to DIY it.
