How-To: Get Your Hair Sports Ready With These Styles Designed By Sam McKnight

02 August 2012 by

Remember when you got told off at high school for having your hair down in PE. Well sports up-dos don't necessarily mean scrunchie ponytails. Grazia Daily met up with Sam McKnight to find out how to trade in our sweaty gym frizz for a glam look on the sports pitch.

Taking inspiration from catwalk styles he showed us how to get two sports ready hair styles. His top tips for keeping the hair neat all day? Make sure your hair is off your face, make sure it's in a tight style and keep a leave-in conditioner in it.

The first style he showed us was a streamlined ponytail, kept sleek by pinning the front inch of hair back separately to the rest.

The second style was this braided look, plaiting the front and side sections of the hair and then pinning them in a bun.

Which do you prefer?
