3 Braided Hairstyles That Will Survive Yoga and Take You to Brunch

Only one thing is better than savasana on a Saturday morning—the potential of eggs benedict to follow. But after a few shoulder stands and vinyasas, your hair might look a mess.

And that’s not to mention the class itself. Sometimes unkempt hair gets in the way of nailing our asanas—it’s pretty hard to balance in bird of paradise if you’re distracted by strands sticking to your sweaty face.

That’s why we pulled together a few braided styles that can work in both scenarios, ranging in difficulty from a one-minute milkmaid to a more ambitious corn-row:

  1. The Milkmaid
  2. The Braided Bun
  3. The Corn-Row Braid

All are designed to keep your hair out of your face throughout your flow, so you emerge from class brunch-ready! (Caveat: If your practice involves certain inversions like headstands, you may need to do a touch-up after hitting the mat.)

Press play to follow along with our how-tos.
