Turkey Trot Tresses

20 Nov

As Turkey Trots come up this week, one of the decisions you’ll be making is how to wear your hair on race day! When choosing race day hair, you have a few choices for medium or long hair: the ponytail, the braid, or the bun.

The Ponytail

The ponytail is the classic choice that is both functional and stylish.

The Bun

I personally love this style is because it keeps my hair not only out of my eyes, but also off of my back and shoulders. This look can also be very romantic and chic, but I highly suggest using more than one hair-holder if you have long hair.

The Braid

Braiding your hair is another great option while running. One of the best parts about braids is that unlike ponytails, there is the option to keep them from swinging. This style also adds an extra level of pizzazz to your running attire if you decide to get creative and do a side braid or fishtail. Plus, if you want to keep your hair off your neck, simply wrap your braid around itself to create a bun and secure with an elastic.

    I’m usually a braid girl. But I sometimes love to braid my fringe down behind my ear and then do a bun for big races! Makes me feel pro! haha

      I’ve been getting into the messy top knot lately for runs (when I’m not wearing a hat). I love adding braids up the back or around the sides to add something to the look. Love your idea – I’ll have to try it some time!
