Fashion being what it is, women Jiu-Jitsu contestants face the extra problem of keeping their hair safely out of the way during a match. Experience has shown that it is necessary to go beyond the ordinary ponytail. These 3 Jiu-Jitsu hairstyles can help:
• Use a 3-sided front-to-back French braid to keep hair back and then secure the ends with a high ponytail.
• Alternatively, go with two French braids for a quicker hairstyle and secure with a high pony as above.
• Standard ponytails leave long ends that can get caught underneath shoulder blades. Always use a high pony and double over into a loose bun to avoid any hard places impacting the back of the head.
