Workout ready

Style your hair so it survives a workout. These tips in Allure magazine come from Julien Farel, official stylist of the U.S. Open.

Pull it back: Moisture makes hair limp and stringy or wild and bushy, so keep your hair off your face and neck.

Stay dry: A ponytail should start at ear level or above. Higher is better: The less contact the tail has with skin, the less sweat it will absorb. To avoid a dent from your elastic, don’t tie the hair back too tightly.

Get beachy waves: For a cute, tidy style that is sexy afterward, pull hair back into a ponytail, secure it with a snag-free elastic, then braid the tail. After your workout, unravel the braid and refresh your hairline with a blast of a blow dryer on the cool setting.

Catch the stragglers: For layered styles, start by doing a tight French braid at the crown to incorporate the shorter pieces. Once you’ve woven in all the hair above the ears, draw the hair into a ponytail and do a second, classic braid for the ends.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
