Some folks love, love, love to workout. And others who would never say "love" and "workout" in the same sentence. No matter which end of the spectrum you find yourself on—or most likely somewhere in the middle—we all can agree that workouts are so much better when there's a hottie who shares our workout schedule. And if he or she is going to be checking you out while you sweat it out, you might as well make sure you look good, right? So today we're giving you a few simple, gym-ready styles that are not only quick but will be one more reason your crush's heart rate is up.
Buns (...Not of Steel)
If you're the kind of gal who wakes up 15 minutes before she leaves for the gym, then you most probably don't have time for anything fancy. And why should you? It's the gym after all, and that cutie you've been eyeing through the mirror is probably impressed by your bicep curls more than anything. In a couple of minutes, you can achieve a messy bun style that shows you can look fly and still bench press like a warrior. And after your workout is complete (and your crush is totally impressed), you can stretch that style right into your workday without the hassle of washing and drying. Simply apply the NuMe Clean N' Mean - Dry Shampoo Powder to your scalp and massage. You'll be ready for the rest of your day in minutes.
All those reps on the stair machine will look a lot less intimidating than they are with your cute ponytail bouncing with each step. Not only is the ponytail the undefeated queen of quick styles, but it can also make the most sweated-out locks look respectable. Knowing that you are about to get crazy drenched, prep by going for a no-fuss version: just finger comb your locks and secure them with an elastic band. If you want to make sure your stair-climbing neighbor notices you for more than only your awesome quads, opt for the NuMe Classic Curling Wand Pearl to add a little texture and untamed perfection to that pony.
One, Two, Three, Fro
Those calories you're burning on the gym floor will undoubtedly earn you much respect from your cutie crush as will your high volume fro. The cool thing about a natural fro is that you can slip a headband on and get to work. No need for a whole lot of extra steps, which is perfect when your squats are calling. The key to rocking the curly fro, especially one exposed to sweat, is to keep frizz at bay as much as possible. Our Gloss Boss Serum will do the trick as it will not only keep the flyaways in check but add some irresistible shine. Now you've got a gorgeous top half to balance out that banging bottom half.
Braid and Burn
Whether you're breathing through a plank or digging deep for a few more pushups, your resilience is sure to get you noticed. And a bomb braid style can't hurt either. A braid that looks effortless is perfect for your workout sessions, especially if you throw it to the side. The best part: you can start with hair as is—no need to prep. To soften the look, pull out some face-framing pieces and let them fall naturally. If you have trouble keeping your hair in place, maybe grab some aptly named Hottie Alert Shine Hairspray and give your locks a quick spritz before showing that guy or gal just how strong you are.
So there you have it, super cute and easy hairstyles that you can do for your next workout! Share your thoughts with us on IG @NuMeStyle or sign up for our newsletter at NuMeUSA.com for hair tips and exclusive offers.
