4 DIY Sweat-proof styles

Look hot from the locker room and beyond with these styles from Mario Russo, Owner and Lead Stylist of Boston's Mario Russo Salon

Braided Top Knot

"This style is excellent when you're doing your crunches! Unlike a ponytail, a bun will not dig into your scalp when you lay on your back."

Braided Top Knot

Start by flipping your head upside down and separate hair at the nape of the neck into three sections. Still upside down, begin to French braid as your normally would until 2/3 of the hair is braided. Gently pull the top of your hair into a high ponytail, including the ends of the braid, and twist the ponytail into a bun shape. Secure with an elastic or multiple bobby pins.

Side Braid-Wrap Pony

"It's perfect for cardio because it keeps all your hair off your face."

Begin by parting the hair and pulling out a 2-inch section near each side. Braid the sections along the hairline, adding more as you go until hair is at the point where it naturally comes together to form a ponytail. Incorporate the braids into the ponytail, wrapping one over the other and securin both ends together with an elastic band. Take a 1/2-inch section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it up around the base to disguise the elastic

Poufy Pony

"Try this style for yoga or pilates class. Your hair is securely in place, but will still have movement when you go into the various positions."

Using a fine-tooth comb, tease hair at the crown 3-5 times by running a comb back and forth between the roots and the crown of your head. QUICK TIP: You could also forgo teasing and just pouf hair and then pin it by crossing over bobby pins. Gather the teased segment of hair and pin it down with a barrette or bobby pins. Pull remaining hair into a tight ponytail to ensure it stays away from the face while you exercise.

Twisted Pony

"Go get your spin on! This look works for spin class because the twists hold hair firmly in place and away from your face."

Take a 1-inch section of hair next to the hairline near your ear and begin twisting it back. As you continue along the side of the scalp, add more hair to the twist. Once you have a good amount of hair in your twist, split it in half and continue twisting—this will intertwine the twists and prevent the pony from losing its shape. When the twist reaches the nape of the neck. Clip it with a bobby pin and repeat this process on the other side of your head. After both sides are twisted, remove the pins and add the twists into the ponytail.
