Fall and Winter activities like hiking and skiing call for a more “out of the way” hairstyle. This article that we found on Bustle gives nine different hairstyles for you to try during your outdoor activities.
Typically, low styles like braids, buns, and ponytails work great when you’re on the slopes. Stay away from high styles or loose styles — the last thing you need is a top knot uncomfortably squished in your helmet or your hairstyle falling apart and flying in your face. In addition to being uncomfortable (and a little nerve-wracking) it can also be dangerous: You need full visibility in this sport!
Below are some of my favorite active hairstyles for any sport, whether you’re skiing or just sledding down the mountain.
Braids are a great option for skiing or boarding, and they are so versatile, you can create your very own unique look. Plus, they don’t fall apart when you’re taking your helmet on and off. Win.
If french braids are too intimidating for you, not to worry — this tutorial breaks it down in the simplest way so even beginners can follow along.
