Are you ready to serve up some serious style on the tennis court? Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, your hair can be the ultimate accessory to help you look and feel your best.

If you have thick or curly hair, a French braid or cornrows can be a good option, as they keep hair secure and out of your face. However, if you have fine or thin hair, Linda recommends using a hair tie that matches your hair color to wrap around the base of your ponytail or bun.
