Given the number of rollers, tongs, and stylers on the market designed to curl hair, you'd think by now getting long-lasting waves would be easy.

We're elated to present this post from our partner site Yahoo! Shine:
When 5-year-old Ethan Clos showed up at school with a short, spiky mohawk last week, his fellow kindergarteners thought it was cool. But administrators at Reid Primary and Middle School in Springfield, Ohio, deemed the edgy cut too disruptive, and ordered him home until he adopted a tamer style.
His mom, Keshia Castle, said that school officials suspended her son on Wednesday. After he begged her for the hairstyle, she finally let him get it over spring break.

It's one thing to work out, and it's another to train like an Olympian. The best athletes in the world are used to grueling hours of training every day, and the last thing they need are distractions like their hair getting in the way. Take inspiration from these Olympians for the perfect no-distraction hairstyle for your next workout.
Keep it high: When they compete in the Olympics, gymnasts are highly encouraged to wear their hair off their neck, which explains all the high ponytails, topknots, and clipped-back hairdos. But these hairstyles aren't just for the judges; when you're flipping your way around a gym, the last thing you want to do is lose sight of the beam.

Braid flyaways: You may not run on the treadmill with locks flowing free like Sanya Richards-Ross's, but you can take a hint from her wearable hairstyle: a simple face-framing braid to keep flyways and bangs away from your forehead.

Having the right hairstyle is important when it comes to a great workout. You can always opt for a fuss-free workout-friendly short hairstyle, but for a less-drastic solution, try one of these five hairstyles that keep your focus on your workout and not what's happening on your head!

Check out these 15 pretty, easy styles and get stylish without (literally) breaking a sweat.
