In today's video I will share with you my top 6 favourite go-to hairstyles for long or medium hair that are perfect for hiking and any outdoor activities. All of them are good for keeping your hair away form the face and at the same time looking very cute, and all you need is a brush and a couple hair elastics. So let's begin!

Watch the full video here:

Let us know if you have enjoyed this video leaving me a comment. We are really interested to know what hairstyle you would like to recreate and which one is your favourite.

Interesting. So to my unstylish eye  basically it's one braid or two, with variation on the 'one'-braid style.

Many of my hiking/ climbing friends have shorter hair that wouldn't allow any braids.

Thank you, they're all different braids, they look a bit different, except for the last two braids. I know that's not going to be for everyone but rather for people who enjoy doing different hairstyles and for whom it's boring to wear the same every day. And it won't work for the short hair of course but for someone who has longer hair braiding it is the only solution.

Couldn't they put their hair in a bun, too?

I have below shoulderl length hair and if I do anything it's just a ponytail.  Easy and keeps hair out of face.   Braids never worked for me. It's good to have options though.

Never got the hang of French braiding my hair, but it is an excellent choice for some folks; I know several women who braid their hair for backpacking. I find that it causes my scalp to hurt, so it's not the only solution for me. My follicles need to be free to move around. Free the Follicles, that’s my motto. And I can't sleep with a snake on my head. It hurts.

I just toss my hair into a pony tail. Besides, let down my hair to thwart mozzies at camp. Sure a braid could whack the sh## out of them, but I think you’d get pretty dizzy doing that. On the other hand, a long braid could be used as a weed whacker on the trail.

Buns? Not for me; they don’t stay up without pins, and I don’t do pins; something else to keep track of, and they don’t stay in my hair anyway, without hairspray, which I don’t do. Plus, my ballcap won’t fit over a hair bun.

For a while, Backpacker Magazine featured nubile blondes in two braids and a handkerchief scarf in every photo in every issue. It was pretty funny. I don't even know if that magainze exists any more.

Your French braids are lovely, walkingnatureworld. They would look especially nice while strolling around St. Moritz, but I think here in the Pacific Northwest you might find a more casual approach to hiking hairstyles. Personally, I find French braiding way too tedious, especially when I am backpacking. Instead, I just tie my hair back with a scrunchy, put one simple braid in and fasten it at the end with a smaller band. It takes less than a minute, and if I wear a bandanna or wool hat I’m good to go for several days! If the mosquitos are bad at night, like Kim Brown said, I will take the braid out and use my hair for a bug deterrent.
For those with shorter hair, there is this functional and cutting edge fashion statement from one of our NWHikers.

Cool!  Do you shampoo with Permethrin before heading out?

Sorta!  I rub bug dope on my clothes, ballcap, and in my hair. After 3 days out, it can be pretty stiff with bug dope and sunscreen. And dirt. And smashed bugs.

I haven’t tried shampooing with Permethrin...yet, but like Kim I have been known to mist my hair with DEET, and have found it helpful in keeping all but the most relentless perpetrators at bay. fencing.gif

Did Miss Normandy hike in braids?  I kinda recall a picture of her with braids.

I put a lot of hairspray on my big hair.  That way, if I'm going into a place where I might be clobbered by rocks or pinecones or squirrels, I don't have to wear a helmet.  Big hair has advantages.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

My Judi Dench style pixie cut works fine for me--Just get it cut every 2 months.  Otherwise, no fuss, no muss!

Admittedly it's a bit inconvenient when doing my other hobby of Civil War reenacting, but I have several options for keeping my hair covered with the appearance of long hair underneath that seem to work.
