How to: Gymnastics Hair

Gymnasts jump, twirl, cartwheel, round-off, handstand, and backbend! When you never stop moving it’s hard to make sure your hair does. Here’s a few pointers to keep hair on point.

Short Bangs
When your little gymnast has bangs the whole hair process can get a little tricky. Immediately after washing her hair pat it down with a towel, then separate out the bangs and apply hair gel or spray. Comb the hair back towards the right or left side and secure hair in a ponytail. If this isn’t enough apply a touch of hairspray to a bobby pin, while making sure the wavy side is against your head, for added grip.

Long Bangs
Braid them back! If you followed Shawn Johnson during the 2008 olympics then you know what I’m talking about. To copy her side braid ponytail comb out your bangs then divide them into three separate strands. From here you can create a French, Lace, Dutch, or Half Dutch braid and keep those bangs from getting in your way. Check out Missy Sue to learn how to do each braid:

Baby Hairs
Baby hairs can be a hassle when trying to create that nice finished look, so here’s a great taming tip: grab your toothbrush! I know this might sound crazy but the fine bristles allow you to grab up all the little straglers. Photo by Missy Sue
Just add a couple drops of your favorite gel to the bristles and brush away!

Frizzy Hair
Styling frizzy hair is no fun, so stop the frizz before you style. To limit breakage and knotting try sleeping on a silk pillow case or wrapping your hair in a silk scarf. One of the best tips to combat frizzy hair though is limiting how often you wash your hair. Try washing your hair every other day, this allows your hair to produce a natural oil that help with the defrizzing process.
