Polished Hairstyles for Work Meetings

You might be in sweatpants when working from home, but your hair can still be professional and polished. The following hairstyles are easy hairstyles to do at home to help you look your best at work.

 
Sleek Low Pony

A low pony is an easy way to look chic and put together without a lot of effort. For this look, part your hair in the center of your head and use a flat iron to smooth your hair. After straightening, use a brush to sweep your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie. To finish the look, use a touch-up cream to get rid of flyaways. 

 
Defined, Frizz-Free Curls

To control frizz with just one product, use a hair serum to define your curls and fight frizz. Apply hair serum to soaking wet hair to help distribute the serum evenly over all your strands. For added definition, gently scrunch your hair and use a diffuser to dry your hair without causing frizz.  

 
Tiny Braid Bun

For a fun twist on your standard bun, add braids to your hair. Start by sectioning your hair and creating two small braids on each side of your head. From there, pull all your hair into a loose, low ponytail. Finally, twist your hair into a bun and secure it with a hairpin.

 
Fun Hairstyles for Virtual Happy Hour

Let your hair and try a new hairstyle during virtual happy hour! After a long day at work, use these easy hairstyles to refresh your look and try something new.

 
Loose Beach Waves

To create loose beach waves, start by sectioning your hair and use a curling wand to curl 1-inch sections of your hair. Create a carefree, boho look by alternating the direction of your curls. For the front sections of your hair, be sure to curl away from your face. To add effortless texture to your waves, add sea salt spray and gently scrunch your hair.   

 
Curly Bobby Pin

To mix up your curly hairstyle, use a bobby pin to add more personality to your look. Start with soaking wet hair and apply 2-3 pumps of styling foam to your hair. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, you may need more product. Scrunch your hair to define your waves and allow your hair to air dry. Adjust your part, pull back one side, and secure your hair with a bobby pin.   

 
Curly Braided Look

For this fun look with curls and braids, start by washing your hair. To add lightweight volume, apply a blowout spray and blowdry your hair. After drying, curl 1-inch sections of your hair, and French braid both sides of your hair. In the back of your head, pull one braid through the other to connect the braids. Lastly, tame flyaways with a touch-up cream and secure your style with hairspray.  

 
Romantic Hairstyles for Virtual Dates

Dates are nerve-wracking as is! Use these hairstyles for carefree hairstyles to help you look your best when meeting someone new.

 
Voluminous, Defined Curls

Rock your natural curls with a defined, frizz-free look. Start by washing your hair and then apply styling foam in sections for touchably soft curls. After the foam is evenly distributed throughout your hair, scrunch your curls for added definition. As an optional step, use a diffuser to dry your hair.

 
Easy Finger Waves

After washing your hair, apply a volumizing mousse from your roots to the ends of your hair before blowdrying. Once your hair is dry, create a deep side part and curl your hair with a curling wand. For added definition, pin your curls to your head and dry for 5-10 minutes before unpinning. After removing the pins, loosen the curls by gently brushing your hair with a brush. Pro tip: mist your brush with hairspray to tame flyaways and secure your style.

 
Sleek and Straight

Sleek, straight hair is a classic look that showcases shiny, frizz-free hair. After washing, apply a frizz immunity primer to wet hair to prevent frizz and improve your hair’s manageability. Next, apply a flat iron spray to protect your hair from heat and help create a straight and smooth style. When styling, start by blowdrying your hair in sections before using a flat iron to straighten your hair while adding shine and smoothness. Lastly, hold your look in place with a flexible hold hairspray.
