Whether you are going to the gym or working out at home, sometimes you just don’t have time for a full shower and beauty routine before you’re off to the next thing. 

But with some dry shampoo and the right hairdo, you can still sneak in your after-work exercise and make that 6:00 happy hour appointment. Just try out one of these hairstyles to take you from gym to drinks, or wherever else you are going next.

Messy Bun

You can choose to rock a top not or keep it low at the nape of your neck, but either way, a bun keeps your hair back and out of your face, no matter what your workout is. The best part of a messy bun is, when a few strands come loose during your mountain climbers, no one will know the difference.

Half Back

Only pulling half of your hair back creates a super cute style that’s ready to go anywhere, while still keeping your hair out of your face. And if you decide to take it out, that’s only half the amount of kinks to work out.

Half back also works great if you have shorter hair that can’t all fit in a ponytail.

Side Ponytail

The side ponytail is a great style for hair that has a lot of volume. Unlike a regular ponytail, it’s out of the way if you need to do some mat work on your back, like crunches or glute bridges. 


4 Inch Headband | Maven Thread

Whatever your hairstyle, a stylish headband is the perfect accessory to get you from workout to work or gym to drinks. It keeps your hair out of your face, absorbs sweat, and when all else fails, covers your not-so-fresh locks, so no one else has to know. P.S. Shop our headbands here!

High Ponytail

Bouncy, flirty and feisty, the high ponytail is perfect for high-energy exercise and happy hour with the girls. This style will stick with you from workout to hang out until the end of the night. 

Side Braid

Make your side braid tight and sleek, or loosen it up for a messier, breezier look. Either way, you’ll be good to go from the gym to wherever you want next. And bonus: it looks really cute with a headband.


Scrunchies | Maven Thread

When sticking with the classic ponytail, opt for a cotton or velvet scrunchie over a traditional, stiff hair tie. This will help you avoid dents if you decide to take your hair down, or add some extra style if you want to leave it up.

French Braid

French Braid | Maven Thread

If you’ve got layered hair that won’t stay put in a ponytail, a french braid might just be your answer. Soft and feminine, no one will suspect you were just at the gym rocking your workout. Plus, if you decide to take the braid out, you’ll have pretty, beachy waves left behind.

Double Braid

Double Braids | Maven Thread

We love a double french braid for a great gym style. No matter how hard you push it, those braids are staying put, meaning you can feel good about your workout without worrying about your hair.
