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 (such as this French fishtail ponytail).
Second up: a braided bun created by Sarah on Evann for beach volleyball (or whatever sport you choose!). It's great for grown-out bangs or layers since hair won't fall in front of your face. Plus, it looks elegant enough to wear out after class.
"This look is perfect for if you were playing beach volleyball or a fun sporting activity, so you can have a little more fun with your bun and make it more textured," Sarah said.
