Staying stylish even at the gym? Sure, but with a hairdo that won't hold you back! Follow the guide.

First of all: sorry ladies, but there is no way to fix your look when you have a swimming cap on, what you see, is what you get. But for other forms of getting fit, here are three simple must-try looks for sporty girls!

Buns and top knots for runners and dancers

Yes, the back and forth movement of a ponytail behind you looks beautiful when you run. But other than that, let's face it, it's just not comfortable: it gets annoying quickly, and your hair might stick to your skin on a very hot day or an especially intense workout. So transform your ponytail into a top knot, just like ballerinas do with their high buns. The bun is synonymous with femininity and it won't distract you!

Ponytails or low braids for yogis and gymnasts

Yoga, and different gymnastic schools, often require you to lie down on the mat so a high ponytail or a top knot just won't do! Consider a more comfortable low ponytail, or bun, that will naturally fit into the hollow space between your neck and your head. You can also try a French braid look, because it will be flat and comfy, with no hair band in the way.

Double-braids for mandatory helmeted sports

Wearing a helmet yet looking cool ? It's possible! Thanks to roller derby teams, the double braids of our childhood are back, and bring a rock, rebellious twist to your look (under your helmet, of course- safety first!). To make it even more stylish, for when you take the helmet off: go for the boxers braids! This hairdo works for rollerblading, rollerskating, cycling, motorcycling, karting... there's no limit!
