Move aside, plain ponytails and messy buns—we’ve got three workout-ready looks bound to get you running to the gym.
Upside Down Braided Bun
Start off by flipping your hair over your head, then use a brush to smooth out any tangles. Spritz Indie Hair Dry Shampoo #comeclean throughout your hair, then grab a small section of hair at the nape your neck and French braid it. Continue braiding the section until you’ve reached the center of your head, then secure it with a clear hair elastic. Pull the braid and the rest of your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic. Grab the ends of the ponytail and twist the ponytail around itself to form a bun. Use another hair elastic or bobby pins to secure the bun in place.
Begin by parting hair down the center, then grab a small section from one side of your head and braid it back. Use a clip to hold it as you braid a second section from the other side of your head, then pull the braids together and secure them with a clear hair elastic. Pull the braided section and the rest of your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic. To finish, use Indie Hair Spray #superfirm to smooth down any flyaways or baby hairs.
The Triple Topknot

Then begin to section the top portion of your head; pulling it back like you would a half-up topknot. Then, tie this section off with an elastic. Next, grab hair from the middle section and pull it back into another bun. Lastly, grab the section left over, near the nape of the neck and secure this into a low bun.
