5 Helpful Hair Accessories for Your Workout

If working out is part of your weekly routine, then you know the struggle of keeping your hair out of the way. With flyaways, bangs, and sweat, finding the best functional and cute accessory can be a challenge in itself. As a fitness product junkie, I have discovered some of the best hair accessories out there for a workout. These products will help keep your hair sweat-free and out of the way, while also keeping you stylish.


Chances are, you may already have one of these laying around your house. Bandannas happen to be one of the most underrated hair accessories for a workout. They're great for sopping up sweat, but cute enough to make you stand out during your workout. I like to wear my bandanna with a high pony tail or messy bun. I’ll clip back my shorter layers into a mini bouffant, and tie the bandana around my head with the knot at the top. Either tuck in the ends, or leave them out for a retro look.

I discovered these little gems when I worked at a specialty running store. We carried no-slip headbands, and after trying one out I quickly became addicted. The lining of the bands is made of a velvety material that keeps them from budging at all. I like to slide one onto a basic pony to dress it up a bit.

Hats are essential for outdoor workouts. They shield your face and scalp from the sun, and protect color-treated hair. Baseball caps also minimize sweat and keep hair out of your face. I like to style my caps with a low messy bun, or I’ll pull my pony through the loop to keep it off my neck.

These types of hair ties are a staple in my product arsenal. Not only do they come in super fun colors, but they don’t leave the annoying creases in my hair that other elastics do. I like to use one of these bands to tie up my hair in a messy bun, or secure a braid for a low intensity workout. These are also the perfect accessory to take you from workout to a night out with friends, since styling your hair is a breeze without the crease.

These headbands from Lululemon are a wonderful addition to any workout gear collection. Like the no-slip headbands mentioned above, these babies stay in place no matter how tough your workout gets. Bonus: They are currently on sale!
