Finding the time to get ready for work in the morning can be tough. When you’re running low on time, it can be a struggle to do a professional makeup look or hairstyle that is both office appropriate and simple to do. Whether you work as a teacher or at a company like Haines, looking professional in the workplace is important. Here are a few easy hairstyles to try out for work that will take little time and effort but keep you looking professional all day long.
- Sleek High Ponytail
Ponytails are one of the easiest hairstyles to do especially on a bad hair day when you’re running low on time, but it’s no secret that they don’t always look the most professional or put together. Switching out your standard messy ponytail for a slick high ponytail is the perfect solution. Slick down fly aways with some leave in cream or styling gel and secure your ponytail on top of your head. Try using a clear elastic or colored ribbon to tie everything together.
- Low Bun
If you’re too short on time to use any products or do any styling, throwing your hair in a low bun can still make you look better and more professional than a messy ponytail. Since the bun is low in the back of your head, it’s ok if it’s messy – it won’t be as visible as other styles such as a ponytail.
- French Braid
If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, tying your hair in a french braid is one of the best ways to hide a bad hair day while making yourself look more put together. Although french braids are relatively simple to do, they look intricate and it will appear that you’ve spent more time on your hair than you actually have, making this the perfect style for a day at the office.
- Added Accessories
The best way to dress up any hairstyle is to add accessories. Whether you’ve thrown your hair up in a messy ponytail or are choosing to wear it straight down, adding a ribbon, colored clip, or patterned headband can help take your look to the next level. Plus, this will make your hairstyle look more put together and thus more professional.
- Half Updo
If you want to wear your hair down but still style it in a unique way, a half updo is perfect. This style is extremely easy to do on top of any hair texture or style, and as an added bonus, it will keep your hair out of your face during a long day of work.
