EASY UPDO HAIRSTYLES FOR WORKING FROM HOME
Luckily, not all updos require an expert skill set, and they can still easily transform your scruffy style to a polished video-ready look in record time...
1. MESSY WRAPPED BUN
The secret to a messy bun? Brush your hair first! Give your locks a quick detangle before loosely tying in a high ponytail and wrapping around back into the same hair tie. Tease any loose strands so they look purposefully messy.
2. CLASSIC CHIGNON
Want to achieve an ultra-polished style in under a few minutes? Keep the classic chignon gleaming by banishing any frizz and flyaways with our Weightless Wonder smoothing crème.
3. EASY PIGTAIL BUNS
Casual, yet still super-cool and more importantly, a style that can be perfected in just a few minutes. Simply create a parting down the centre of your head (Note: this doesn’t have to be perfect - no one can see the back of your head on a zoom call!) Then loosely braid both sides and wrap around. Pin each bun in place and enjoy this more casual style.
EASY WORK HAIRSTYLES FOR LONG HAIR
Longer hair can take a little longer to style as there is simply more of it! Braided hairstyles are a great way to get you video call ready, so check out the braided
hairstyles to try this year or try these quick and easy hairdos to ensure your mane is video call ready…
4. STRAIGHT BLOW DRY
To keep your long locks smoother for longer, spritz John Frieda Forever Smooth blow dry styling spray after washing and before blow drying, to keep your style sleek and flyaway free for up to 24 hours. Try this before going to bed for smoother, more manageable hair in the morning, you’ll be ready for that 9am video call in no time!
5. HALF UP HALF DOWN
When your hair just won’t go how you want it to, you can’t go wrong with a quick half up half down hairstyle. A messy half bun will look chic and effortless – simply section your hair and twist it into a messy bun.
6. A CLASSY HEADBAND
If your roots are in urgent need of your hairdresser, pop on a headband. Headbands can hide a mass of root regrowth, as well as make you look like you’ve spent more than 5 minutes getting ready in the morning!
EASY CURLY HAIRSTYLES FOR WORKING FROM HOME
7. EASY PINEAPPLE UPDO
If your curls are feeling a little less than fresh a few days after washing, revive them with our Dream Curls daily styling spray - simply spritz and scrunch to bring back that bounce. Gather up your curls as if you’re making a high pony, loosely securing with a scrunchie and bring forward to the front of your head, and voila! You have the perfect curly updo hairstyle for work.
8. HALF-UP CURLS
You don’t have time to style a full head of curls - we understand, it can take forever! The solution? Get the bottom half looking good and tie up the top in a mini bun for a stylish and speedy look.
9. SNATCHED PONYTAIL
The ultimate fuss-free look that will make you feel super stylish in a matter of seconds! Brush your hair into a high pony, smoothing from the roots, then secure the pony in place with a strong hair tie. If you’ve got any frizz or flyaways, simply smooth into place with a quick spritz of our intense hold hairspray.
