No matter what you do for a living, the way you way your hair to work shouldn’t distract you or others from your work. It’s important to express your individuality, of course, but it’s more important to be conscious of what’s appropriate. Trendy and modern, yet classic and streamlined—one of these five hairstyles should be your go-to next time you’re in doubt.
SOFT BEACH WAVES
Beach waves are so easy to do and are perfect when your day’s schedule is packed with all kinds of things. You’ll look professional when you present your work in your morning meeting yet still trendy enough for when you have lunch with a client.
HIGH TEXTURED PONY
This is a great look for a bold lip or a summer dress and perfect for making a statement without appearing overly done-up or inappropriately bold.
LOW SLUNG PONYTAIL
This the go-to look for the girl on the go. It doesn’t get in the way of anything, can last for 8 hours +, and still looks chic. You can also dress it up with statement earrings or bold colors/prints.
HALF-UP & ACCESSORIZED
Hair accessories are a great way to make any style look more thoughtful and polished and pairs well with a playful yet sleek half-up style like this one. To keep things from looking too princess-like, skip the faux diamonds and choose a simple accessory. Jen Atkin worked with Chloe and Isabel and came up with some great, modern options.
SLEEK & LOW TWISTED BUN
When you mean business, but you’re dealing with next day hair, a sleek, low twisted bun will cross all your t’s without making it look like you just got out of ballet class. Pro-tip: Brush back cowlicks or flyaways with a toothbrush and hair spray.
