THE CHICEST HAIRSTYLES TO GET YOU THROUGH ANY WORKOUT

We are in the thick of summer - dealing with balmy hot weather while getting from point A to point B, trying to look stylish for outdoor activities and most importantly trying to stay healthy and active while keeping our crazy long tresses off our neck!  

We don’t know about you, but we sweat when we work out – excuse us, we mean glisten!  No matter if we are blasting T-Swift and running 4 miles or in head-to-toe Lululemon getting our downward dog on, we need a hairstyle that will endure any calorie burn.  Because bottom line….you don't want to worry about your hair while you are burning off that chocolate croissant from your girls brunch.  Here are some of our favorite and perspiration tested hairstyles to get you through any workout:

Hairstyle: Topknot
