5 Work-From-Home Hairstyles
We know. What with lockdown and all, your tresses likely need a trim (and maybe a color, and definitely some TLC...). Whether working from home, taking meetings or video socialising with friends, you’ll need to look presentable – at least from the waist up! While we’re big fans of the messy bun, there are plenty of simple ways to level up your hair look at home. Plus, when you look good, you feel good! Try our five fave hairstyles for fun, chic 'dos that’ll cover all kinds of hair sins.
Five Fun Hairstyles To Try
A look that says "I made an effort" while secretly disguising your split ends? Love! To get the look, put your hair in a high ponytail and divide into three sections. Braid each one and wrap them around until they form a bun. Play with placement until you get your desired look; secure with bobby pins.
Textured High Ponytail
A nineties classic, the high ponytail is great for getting your hair off of your face and out of your way. This textured take on the look is quick and easy. Just flip your hair over, making sure you grab every strand, and secure in place with a strong ponytail holder. For a textured finish,use a brush or comb to tease areas that need a lift.
Heat-Free Waves & Hair Accessories
Braids are the perfect way to create heat-free beachy waves. Just put damp hair into two braids post-shower and leave overnight (or until dry) before undoing them. Use oil to tame any frizz instead of brushing them out. Your hair will thank you for the break from damaging curling irons, and you’ll get gorgeous curls. Add glam with embellished hair slides and clips.
Half Up, Half Down
Face-framing bangs and layers desperate for a pro trim? Getting in the way while you work? This updo is what you need. Sweep back hair from the top edge of your ears upwards, using hairspray if your locks needs taming. Pop on a cute scrunchie for a fun fashion finish.
Rock a messy bun 90% of the week? Then let this slick, sophisticated pick be your go-to the rest of the time. Both professional and party-ready, this easy style is a winner when your hair really needs washing (we won't tell). Spritz with dry shampoo or apply a small amount of your fave mask or hair treatment. Use a comb to brush your hair into a low ponytail with no lumps or bumps before securing. A statement hair bow's the perfect finishing touch.
