#1: French Twist

The French twist is a timeless hairstyle that neatly pulls your hair back into an elegant style. It’s been a professional favorite throughout the years.

The best part of all? It’s super easy to do. Alex Gaboury‘s tutorial shows you how to rock this style within a few minutes.

#2: Simple Bun

I’m always a fan of braided bangs because they are so versatile and can be incorporated into any other hairstyle.

They’re a perfect hairstyle for work as they neatly pull your hair out of your face, and can jazz up your hair with little effort.

This look is pretty self-explanatory; you just have to braid a small section of hair around your face and pin it to the side. But if you still need some guidance, TheStyleBlog has a pretty sweet tutorial.

#4: Half-Up Twisted Updo

I love the half-twisted updo for a work hairstyle since they look so professional and are incredibly easy to pull off… even without experience.

The beauty of this hairstyle is that it doesn’t need to be perfect; it’s meant to be messy, and anything goes.

There are so many variations of this style, but I love this one by Kate from The Small Things Blog.

#5: Textured Ponytail

The textured pony is another timeless variation of a very basic hairstyle. Add some waves to the hair with a curling wand or bump up the texture with some dry texturizing spray.

Don’t forget to wrap some hair around the base of the ponytail to conceal the rubber band.

While the ponytail can be either high, medium, or low, this tutorial by Noel Labb has some great tips to get you started.

#6: Braided Ballerina Bun

#7: Gibson Tuck

The Gibson tuck is a really fun hairstyle for work because there are so many variations, and they are all equally classy. It’s also another style that doesn’t need to look perfect, making it easier to do.

This variation by SweetHearts Hair is one of my favorites.

Low buns are always fun, but it’s extra fun to add in some twists and texture. It gives it a messy, undone vibe while still looking professional.

Here is a 10-minute tutorial by Hair Angels.

#10: Pull-Through Braid

Last but not least, we come to another one of my favorite hairstyles… the pull-through braid.

It gives the illusion of a formal chunky braid, but it’s way easier to do and can be done with minimal effort.

It’s super trendy and the perfect hairstyle for work!

I know that it might look a bit intimidating, but don’t worry! Loepsie has this super easy tutorial that shows you how to create this look on your own!
