In this article, I will show you different hairstyles so your hair doesn’t get all tangled up and you will still look cute after a ride. Some of these styles look better than others and in the end; I will show you my absolute favourite and most effective solution to wearing a bike helmet with long hair. So I hope it will be helpful for you.
A low bun is one of the simplest hairstyles to achieve. It’s one of my personal favourites. So I pull all of my hair, tuck it behind my ears, secure it at the base of my neck, twist it around, and then take a larger elastic and simply tie it over my bun to keep everything in place. After you’ve done a low bun, you can use a head gator as an extra layer to protect your hair and keep your hair out of your face.
A simple braid down your back is another quick and easy hairstyle. This is something I like to do, especially if I’m going somewhere where I want to wear my hair down after riding. That’s because it doesn’t leave a lot of kinks in my hair. When I leave the house, my hair will look the same whether it is straight, wavy, or curly. I usually braid it, bring it forward, and tie it.
If I’m going on a shorter, less strenuous ride, I’ll usually just do a low ponytail. So, just like the bun, I’ll secure it at the base of my neck, and what I really like to do is tuck it into my shirt or jacket before I ride so it doesn’t fly everywhere. When you get off the bike, it looks pretty good.
In terms of hair accessories, you can use dry shampoo to help with frizziness. Instead of using elastics, use a scrunchie, which will not leave indentations in your hair. If you want to take your helmet off while still looking cute, use a scrunchie. My personal favourite tip is to always keep a small compact brush on hand. When you’re done cycling, the brush simply pops open, and you have a brush with which to brush your hair.
