Winter Biking: Quick & Easy DIY Hairstyle


Bike helmets and hats can be a highlight of winter biking style, but sadly, bundling up in a bike helmet frequently leaves our hair static-y, flat, and utterly messed-up. As a result, we tend to skimp on the styling. So my best friend and fellow biker Greer and I pulled together a quick and easy hair tutorial for milkmaid braids to go under your bike helmet. Let’s get started!

What you’ll need:

  • Bike helmet
  • Bobbie Pins
  • 2 Hair ties
  • Hairspray


STEP 1: Start by parting your hair down the middle so that both sides have equal amounts.


STEP 2: Gather half of your hair on one side of your head and begin to tightly braid this section. Secure the bottom with a hair tie.  DIY_Bike_Braids-2

STEP 3: Braid the other side of your hair. DIY_Bike_Braids-3

STEP 4: Pull one braid upward and across your head like a headband. Use the bobbie pins to secure the braid in place.  DIY_Bike_Braids-4

STEP 5: Pull the other braid upward and over. The braids should flow into each other. Use the remaining bobbie pins to fix the braid in place. Carefully begin to tuck the ends under the opposite braid without disrupting the braid’s placement on the head. DIY_Bike_Braids-5

STEP 6: Finish off with some hairspray and ta-da! Now you have some bike helmet friendly tresses for winter riding. DIY_Bike_Braids-4.5
