Hairstyles that are Perfect for Work and Still Very Chic

These styles are the perfect mix of professional and fun!

Figuring out what hairstyle to create for work can be kind of stressful. It can be difficult early in the morning to figure out a style that isn’t too cutesy or daring for your place of work, and is just right for the amount of time you have to get ready in the A.M. Most of this stress can lead to you just blow-drying your hair and calling it a day. While we love a good blowout, it can be fun to switch up your style during the week.

We’ve come up with 5 professional work hairstyles that are easy to create and are the perfect mix of chic and daytime appropriate. Check them out:

1. Curly Hair Half Updo

This curly hair half updo is filled with volume and we love it!

For our curly-haired gals, we’ve got a fab hairstyle you need to try! This half updo is a great way to tame your curls but still leave them wild and let them do their thing. Give your curls body and hold with Suave Captivating Curls Mousse Cream before styling. Once the product is in, gather the top section of your hair and create a messy bun. Use some bobby pins to secure your bun so it doesn’t fall out during work.

2. Loose Waves

You can never go wrong with loose waves.

This style is an absolute classic. We love this style as a professional work hairstyle because it doesn’t require any styling in the morning and if you curl your hair during the weekend it’ll be perfectly loose by Monday! Give yourself some loose curls the night before with an iron or wand. In the morning, your hair will be ready!

3. Sleek Bun

Go for the sleek bun to disguise dirty hair.

If you’re working with some dirty hair, then the sleek bun is going to be your best friend when it comes to professional work hairstyles. If you think you’re hair looks too greasy, put some gel on your brush and brush your hair so it’s all got a sleek finish. We love Bed Head by TIGI Up Front Rocking Gel Pomade for a shiny yet natural finish. Put your hair up in a tight top knot and you’re good to go!

4. Curly Hair Braided Low Bun
