We don't know about you, but we've been glued to our screens watching all the Olympics action unfold. Admittedly, we've also been shying away from our normal workout routines this Winter, but all this sport has us in the mood to move again! Mastering the perfect workout-ready hairstyle doesn't have to be tricky, just take your cues from some of your favourite celebrities on the red carpet and adapt to suit your chosen sport! You see we've got the milkmaid braid — but it might not work if you're planning on cycling outdoors! But there's more, so click through to see all five workout-ready hairstyles.
All this Olympics action has not only reinvigorated our need to get to the gym (but it's so cold outside!), it also got us thinking about our must-have beauty products for our gym bags. Working out before or after work can prove tricky when it comes to what to pack — let's be honest, no one wants to lug around more than they need to — but you also don't want to be left post-workout shower without your favourite styling product! So in honour of all things sporty, click through to see our top six gym bag beauty must-haves.

Eamon Sullivan is just one of three Australian athletes to land a beauty and grooming contract out of the 2012 London Olympics. As a major global partner of the Games, P&G — the company behind big-name brands such as Gillette and Pantene — is sponsoring the entire Australian Olympic team but has chosen Eamon Sullivan, Emily Seebohm and Sophie Edington to be ambassadors for Gillette, Pantene and Oral-B respectively. Explaining its involvement with the Olympics, Maile Carnegie, Managing Director of P&G Australia and New Zealand says: "While we are not in the business of sports, P&G is in the business of helping mums . . . Every Olympic athlete has a mum and mums are with their children every step of the way, nurturing and encouraging them." P&G even went so far as to survey the athletes about mum's support, finding that, between them, the mums have had over 5,000 early morning starts, travelled 6.5 times around the world and done 11,000 extra loads of washing to support their children's Olympic dreams. Wowsers! All the athletes said they're extremely honoured to be picked as P&G ambassadors, with Sullivan joking that the task of shaving his legs ahead of the Games will be easier, not to mention cheaper, now that he's part of the Gillette family!
