Celebrity Stylist Rodney Cutler Shares Tips On Post Workout Styling

Did you make a resolution on New Year’s Eve? Was it to drop the pounds that you put on over the holidays? Yes … so did we! The gym is packed with everyone getting back on track for the New Year, which means bathrooms are over populated. It’s the time of year when mirror space becomes the hottest commodity at the gym! Are you ready for a few post-workout tips to refresh hair is minutes? Awesome, ‘cause we have a few from owner of Cutler/Redken Salons and celebrity stylist, Rodney Cutler!

Braid On: “My wife and I met at a sports club, so remember you never know whom you're going to meet out in the world (or at the gym)!” says Rodney. An easy braid is the perfect style for your workout; it will keep you hair out of your face. Taking your hair out of the braid will leave you with a beachy, textured finish -- a great look for your next destination!

Dry Shampoo is Your Best Friend: Prevent you hair from becoming “wet” with sweat by keeping a dry shampoo handy. A light spritz pre-workout can helps to minimize the moisture that is created during a work out. My favorite go-to product is Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender & Oil Absorbing Dry Shampoo. Using this before your work out will reduce sweat, while using it after helps to control flyways and static.

Pony Up: If you have a hard-core gym session planned, be sure to pack a boar bristle brush. This will help create the best pony. Don't worry about a little sweat getting in there - the natural sebum and oils from your will scalp will help nourish your ends and add instant shine. Use a light hairspray to hold it in place.

Shower & Go: The wet chignon is a perfect go-to style when you're strapped for time (or all the other women are hogging the one gym blow-dryer!). Don't brush your hair after the shower. Separate into two sections (top and bottom), then divide the bottom section in the center. Clip the top section away. Take one of the bottom sections and twist it. As it's twisted, wrap it around itself in order to get a small twisted bun. Repeat with the other section and wrap it around the first twisted bun. Secure the hair with bobby pins. Finish by doing the same with the top section and position this twisted bun above the bottom two. Secure with a few more bobby pins and voila! This should take no more than 5 minutes, post-shower!
