Twist Out

If you think that it is time to give the twist a rest then go for the twist out look.  This style looks awesome and is workout approved.


Maybe you don’t want to take the time and effort of doing twist, then you can go to the good old fallback, a bun!  It’s simple it’s quick and works with you not against you at the gym.

Braided Bang

Want to spice it up a little?  You can definitely braid the front of your hair and have twist or a fro towards the back.  This adds a little spice to your gym look.

Curl Puff

Finally, you can always wear your Afro or just pull your curls back and you are ready to go!
