Athleisure braids: the easy urban hairstyle trend

Now you no longer need to worry about your sweaty hair distracting your focus during your daily workout. Try an athleisure braid to keep your tresses in place not just when you are at the gym, but also for a sporty look anytime!

Where serious sport meets urban athleisure

Styling your hair right when heading out for your daily workout can be a challenge – you must keep your tresses from falling all over your face while simultaneously projecting a fierce image. This type of boxer braids offers you the perfect solution – a great blend of femininity, functionality, and attitude.

A no-sweat step-by-step tutorial

We know that your sporty types do not have time to waste trying to get complex hairstyles done. So, here's how you can get these stylish yet practical boxer braids with ease.

Step 1:

Part your hair right in the center with a comb.

Step 2:

Make three divisions of the front section on one side.

Step 3:

Make a Dutch Braid with these sections. This is done by braiding the hair sections under one another as you keep adding hair.

Step 4:

After you reach the nape of your neck start braiding regularly till the end and secure with a hair tie.

Step 5:

Do the same on the other side and you are done! See to it that you keep the tension through the braid. This will ensure a neat finish with no flyaways.

A sporty look for any occasion

And yes, you can show off your boxer braids anywhere – not just at the gym or in the ring! Athleisure is the trend now where sporty outfits and hairstyles are worn even when you are not into something sports-related. Set off the hairstyle with 90s-inspired outfits for a unique look – perhaps a pair of track pants with a graphic tee – that says athletics-meets-leisure!
