Hairstyles are an excellent way to express our individualities and personalities, but sometimes when we’re caught in the morning rush before work, we neglect our hair and throw it back in the never-let-me-down ponytail. Maybe it’s because we can’t be bothered or don’t have the time to stand around with hair tools and an endless amount of bobby pins in the morning. Well, we have ten eye-catching and easy hairstyles for you to try before you settle for that tired ponytail once again!
1. Effortless Bun
Going for that effortless look that makes everybody think you tried really hard on your hair but really didn’t at all? Then this effortless bun hairstyle is perfect for you! From Alex Gaboury, this easy 3 minute low-do is one of the most effortless hairstyles you could sport at your workplace!
2. Sweet Half-up Half Down
This look is perfect if you don’t quite want your hair in your face while you’re working, but still want it to fall down naturally on your back. Simply grab a small elastic, (clear or your hair colour is best) and tie back the top layers of your hair at the back of your head. To add some flair to this hairstyle, add some curls to your front layers and let the small pony tail appear soft and effortless.
3. Ribbon Low Ponytail
If you must opt for the low pony tail look and can seem to steer away from it, then try adding some flair to one of the most popular hairstyles by incorporating a thin ribbon to the base of your ponytail. Take out some of your front layers to frame your face, and you’re done! A sweet hairstyle that looks both cute and effortless.
4. Hair clips
Did someone say 90s? Well, not quite. But one of the trendiest hairstyles we’re loving this year is the comeback of hair clips that was so very popular in the 1990s. Cute, easy and effortless, pinning your hair back behind your ear with some stylish hair clips is the perfect way to wear your hair down if you don’t want your strands falling over your face.
5. Velvet Headband
Again, one of the cutest hairstyles trends we’re loving this year that’s both effortless and so charming. Channel your inner Alice making her way through Wonderland and use a velvet headband to place your hair firmly away from your face. This is the perfect way to leave your hair out and still appear professional in the workplace.
6. Signature Half-Up
Another beautiful half-up do, this one of the more complicated, but worthwhile hairstyles you can try for the office. From A Mix of Min, this half-up do is relatively simple, pretty and is great for covering up some greasy top layers if that’s what you’re trying to steer attention away from.
7. Twisted Half-Up Do
Okay, maybe you’re getting slightly over the half-up dos, but these hairstyles are a great way to keep your mane out of your face and more importantly, the possibilities with this hairstyle are endless! In this hairstyle, section your front layers into two separate sections and again, split these into two sections. Twist each section together towards the back of your head and connect both sides together with an elastic at the back. Effortless and beautiful!
8. Front Row Braid
If you’ve got a little extra time in the morning and don’t mind practising your braiding skills, then this front row braid is absolutely perfect for you. Braid the front layers of your hair away from your face and continue all the way down. You can choose to pin the braid at the back of your head or collect all your hair and wrap it up in a sleek ponytail.
9. French Twist Punch Clip Bun
The french twist is one the trendiest hairstyles this year, with many celebrities sporting the hairstyle on the red carpet to complete their glam looks. You can incorporate this super functional look as well by twisting your hair into a bun and holding it up with a stylish punch clip!
10. Messy High Bun
If you’re looking for some ultra-chic bun ideas, then this messy high bun is perfect for you to try out. Sometimes we get caught up with our hair and throw it up in a high bun without thinking too much. But this messy high bun is one of the trendiest work hairstyles you can sport to the office yet.
