Work Hair Ideas

1. Half Up Look

If you have natural hair you’ll want to make sure that it’s out of your way when you’re working. One classic style that we adore is the half-up look that looks stunning on volumious natural hair. Go the extra mile in the style department by creating a mini bouffant that you can hold in place with a large clip or our beloved bobby pins. If your finding that your hair is particularly dry before you go to work, apply some of the Nexxus Hydra-Light Step 3 Leave-In Conditioning Foam. This formula works to restore shine and softness to your without any residue.

2. Clean and Sleek Bob

Those with a bob might want to leave their hair down when they work. That’s cool – just make sure you go to work with clean and sleek-looking hair. For some styling help with any frizz or flyways use a serum like the Suave Professionals Biotin Anti-Breakage Serum whose formula works to protect your hair and make it stronger.

Thank goodness for headbands. They are our savior in so many situations (gym hair, anyone?!) that definitely translates into an appropriate look for work. Go for your favorite fashionable band that you pair with a ponytail or bun to keep you on-point and not distracted as you whip up that latte.

7. Side Hairstyle

How cool is this update on the ponytail? A comb ode to the ’80s intermixed with a modern side style, we love this as a way to showcase your big, curly hair when you’re working. Use a big clip to hold it together as you let your curls be free. Lock in this cool style by using some Bed Head by Tigi Headrush Shine Hairspray. This formula will give you some serious shine as it keeps your look in place all day long.
