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 or this braided ballerina bun.
For the last day, Sarah created these double Dutch French braids on Chase that are perfect for yoga — since they are balanced and will allow you to nail that headstand. Plus, you can create them for your morning workout and then take them out before happy hour to get perfect beach waves! Keep reading to learn how to DIY this look.
