1. Overnight Waves

This is perfect for the girls who find it easier to prep for work the night before. To create this style, create a few braids in your hair before bed, set with a holding spray like TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray and loosen up in the morning.

2. Smooth Updo

This hairstyle requires minimal effort and is perfect for the girl that wakes up just in time to hit the shower and then get dressed. Apply Bed Head by TIGI Control Freak Serum to hair and smooth it up into a sleek ponytail. Wind the ends of your hair into a bun and pin in place to secure. Use bobby pins to control any flyaways while making an office-friendly fashionable statement. To finish, give your updo a spray of Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Non-Aerosol Hairspray then it’s time to head on to the office.

If you find yourself getting yourself together for the day in the back of a cab, this loose updo style is right up your alley. With no mirror needed, style your hair on the go in just a few minutes. To create this look, fingercomb your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie.

4. Single Braid

Braids were big on the runway and amongst the street style set. To rework this trend for the office, opt for the single braid version. To create the look simply apply a product that will help you keep your braid in place. You can opt for using a bit of Suave Professionals Firm Control Sculpting Gel then braid your hair. Alternatively you can braid first, then finish with a firm hold hairspray, like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4. Keep the look office-friendly by wearing it with a blazer or chic work blouse.

5. Face-Framing Bangs

For a simple and cute update, try face-framing bangs. Pull your hair out at the front then gather the back into a ponytail or low bun. Use a curling iron to bump the ends of your bangs or go for a fun bouncy curly. Allow your hair to cool, then set your look in place with a smooth-hold hairspray, like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2.
