More running in jeans with hair down

It is a common pet peeve of women to see other girls running and working out with their hair down. And by “down” I mean no hair tie or hairband keeping sweaty strands from bouncing off faces, necks, and shoulders. As someone that always has her hair securely fashioned during all fitness activities and is very distracted by even a loose strand or two, I cannot imagine how women do this.

I’ve come across a couple of pictures that combine running in denim with loose hair.



Taken at last year’s Race for the Cure in Knoxville, TN.

  1. Having one’s hair down at the gym is a HUGE pet peeve of mine!!

  2. AMEN, sister! Jean + hair down is a double whammy. I coach gymnastics and it drives me NUTS when the girls come in without their long, flowing locks pulled up. When I spot them, I inevitably grab their hair. How much effort does it take to use a 5 cent ponytail holder? Enraging! 🙂

  3. To flâneur whilst sporting jeans and engaging in a leisure activity seems completely acceptable. 🙂

    Besides being a distraction, it’s HOT! Ponytails and sweatybands all the way!

  5. Hahahahaha… I guess if you look good, you feel good. And if you feel good, you run good. 🙂
