4. Super Simple Beach Waves


Have a straightener but no curling iron? No worries! You can still sport some adorable beach waves. Simply throw your hair together into a braid, run the straightener over it, and enjoy some lovely waves. Toss your lengthy side bangs to the side and clip it back to keep your face open and bangs away for an open, friendly look that’s casual yet cute.

5. Chignon


Ah yes, the chignon. It may look like an extremely complicated hairstyle, but this highly refined and polished hairstyle can literally be done in seconds. It’s probably one of the most favored business hairstyle in the industry as it’s gorgeous, classy, and feminine all at once. Best part is, you won’t have to switch up your ‘do from day to night as this lovely style works anywhere.

6. Simple Side Braid


Never underestimate the power of a braid! Yes they may be simple, but boy are they FABULOUS. Side braids are utterly adorable, a great way to showcase those lengthy locks in a feminine and beautiful way. We love how she leaves a big of her bangs out, giving them a gentle curl that really adds to the overall daintiness of her style. Simply gorgeous, you really can’t go wrong with a braid!

7. Textured Ponytail


A ponytail is always a great option for work. However, the typical ponytail can get a little boring if you’re using it several times a week. That’s why adding just a touch of texture is an excellent idea! Here she adds plenty of volume in the front, with some subtle waves in the back to keep things looking elegant and beautiful. Last but not least she adds some twists and clips above the hairband, hiding her hairband for a unique and lovely style that is wonderful for the office.

8. Flower Braid


Can you think of ANYTHING more dainty and elegant than a beautiful flower? I sure can’t; and the fashion world has finally found a way to incorporate flowers into our hairstyles. This lovely flower braid is a LOT easier than it looks and you can do this textured, unique look in a matter of minutes. Incredible! Finish it off with a low ponytail to keep the hair away from your face while you work.

9. Voluminous Waves


Loaded with sexy volume, these voluminous waves can easily double as your date night go-to hairstyle and your charming office style. Clip your bangs bag to really open up your face and let your eyes do the talking. It may be a bit on the sultry side, but it’s downright fancy.

10. Subtle Underflip


So you’re going to work today but don’t want to stick to slick straight locks? Give them a bit of life by simply curling the ends inward for a lovely style that can be worn anywhere. We’re loving her layers of all shapes and lengths, which are heavily amplified by her use of curling.

11. Front Braid


Give your hair just a touch of dimension, style, and cuteness with a front braid. A front braid quickly and easily adds a touch of depth and elegance to your locks, taking your straight strands from boring to trendy and fabulous!

12. Wrap Around Braid


Braids are so beautiful no matter HOW you wear them; but we especially adore this unique, fashionable braided hairstyle. She grabs some strands near the front of her face, drawing them back into a beauteous wrap-around braid that’s tame but trendy. Would look absolutely amazing with all of your business apparel, giving your style some feminine body.
