If you wear knotless box braids to work out, like I do, then you know how difficult it can be to keep your braids in the hair ties you put them in. But anyone who has taken a yoga class with Peloton's Chelsea Jackson Roberts, PhD, knows that her braids don't budge. Luckily, Dr. Roberts has shared an Instagram video tutorial for her top six stay-in-place hairstyles that she wears for class.
Throughout the tutorial, Dr. Roberts explains the ways in which each hairstyle makes aspects of a yoga class less of a fuss. For example, as she's braiding all of her hair over one shoulder, she says that it's easy for her to lay down without "this huge thing" on the back of her head, so the style is great for a yoga nidra practice.
Whether she's teaching power flow, slow flow, or restorative flow, Dr. Roberts' hair is always styled for the occasion. And with six to choose from, there is definitely something for all of us braids wearers to try. There's even one inspired by the legendary Frida Kahlo!
