Happy Wednesday! While you might all know about my major crush on Olympian Greg Rutherford, I do pay attention to other athletes too! While watching the Olympics, I spotted a few hairstyles that I loved and wanted to replicate. Below are three hairstyles that were inspired by the Olympics.
Dutch Braid Ponytail
Inspired by heptathlon athlete Alina Fodorova, I loved her dutch braid ponytail. I loved how this style keeps the hairs out of my face and similar to Fodorova, if it gets too hot, you can throw this into a bun like she did between events.
I loved watching Canadians Sarah Pavan and Heather Bansley crushing their Beach Volleyball event. It was such a simple but mighty hairstyle, I just had to try it out. While they had a visor to keep the hair out of their faces, I used the Double Strand Headwraps instead. I used the SlideProof Elastic for my base to keep my ponytail from moving then used a fun colourful Secure Fit Elastic to tie off the end.
Bun with a Twist
If you watch gymnastics as much as I do, then you’d spot the fan favourite hairstyle: the bun. While I love the bun, I decided to put a little bit of a twist to it. While you can use a Double Strand Headwrap like I did last week with my top knot, if you’re in a pinch and without a headwrap, you can do what I did here and start off with a french braid before twisting it into a bun.
Like I mentioned in my previous post, this was the bun that I put to the extreme test. After some light yoga, this bun was put through a 10K run and it just did not budge. My secret? I used the SlideProof Elastic as the base of the ponytail before using the Secure Fit Elastics on top on it once it was twisted into a bun. The two hair ties combined made the bun budge –proof and it was the first time a bun had lasted more than 6 hours like this one had.
