Hairstyles for Athletes

Athlete with TIY hair style

Being an athlete means focus and discipline are part of daily life. Whether it’s time for a workout, a practice session or a fierce game, hair distractions have no place in sports. That’s why TIY spent two years developing and testing the best hair ties for athletes. 

Own your power and let your strength shine with custom hair ties for any hair type, length and texture. The concept behind TIY hair ties is simple — cut your hair tie to the perfect length for your style, then tie a one-loop, two-loop or four-loop hair tie and lock that mane in place, no matter what.

Sporty Hairstyles

Sports hairstyles need to be functional before all else, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. Match our color options to your team uniform or create your own signature look to stand out from the rest. Those with short hair can benefit from a custom TIY hair tie headband, while a hair tie bracelet means you’ll always be ready for action.     

Athlete Hairstyles

It’s no secret that athlete hairstyles need to withstand intense conditions without budging. Whatever your hair type, there are plenty of great options to keep those tresses out of your eyes and out of your mind. TIY hair ties are manufactured with a high-quality elastomer core. That means our hair ties provide maximum hold without stretching out or damaging your hair.

Best Sporty Hairstyles for Your Workout

When it’s time to hit the gym or get going on the field, a functional hairstyle is where it’s at. Check out a few of our favorite go-to sporty hairstyles:

    • The High Ponytail — This style is great for keeping medium to long hair at bay.
    • Box Braids — This gorgeous style is versatile, effective and works beautifully for textured hair. 
    • The Classic Bun — Long favored by ballerinas and figure skaters, the classic chic bun is neat and perfect for a distraction-free, minimalist look. 
  • A Long French Braid — Braiding hair from the top of your head and down against your scalp is a great way to capture shorter layers
