Who says you can’t wear color to work? Brighten up your work hairstyle for short hair with color. This style looks gorgeous when worn up in an afro or down in a silk-pressed bob.

Create a cute little bun by slicking back your hair for work. Slick back your hair with a safe firm-hold gel such as SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil + Flaxseed Strong Hold Styling Gel. After styling your hair, touch up on your look by laying your edges with the same gel. Although this hairstyle is cute and easy to achieve, don’t get into the habit of slicking your hair back every day! This is because pulling and tugging on your hair often while slicking back on your hair can cause breakage over time.

Additionally, care for your scalp throughout the week with Suave Professionals Castor Oil & Mango Butter for Natural Hair and Scalp Oil
