If you’re a working woman, every day is a balancing act. In order to ensure that everything goes smoothly, a little bit of planning helps.

All you need is a few minutes, a little bit of patience and you’ll be good to go, rocking that hairdo like you own it. So read on for more.
The classic top knot

The classic top knot

This is the best hairstyle that signifies that you are your own boss and that you’re here to get things done. All you need for this hairstyle is a hair tie, some bobby pins, hair spray (optional) and a bit of determination. Gather all of your hair and hold it in your hand as if you’re about to tie a ponytail. Then, twist the hair and coil it over your crown in the shape of a bun and put a hair tie around it. To tuck away loose hair, make use of bobby pins. Avoid strays by using some hair spray. You can also do a low knot by simply moving the position of the bun to the nape of the neck.
 
Knotted ponytail
 
This can either be placed high or low on your head depending on your taste. To create this hairstyle, all you have to do is leave a small chunk of hair out when you’re tying a ponytail. Once the ponytail is intact, wrap the left out chunk of hair around the hair tie and make sure it’s intact by fastening it with a bobby pin.
 

High ponytail

Another hairstyle that spells B.O.S.S. is the high ponytail. While creating this hairstyle, keep in mind that you should use a thick hair tie so that the ponytail does not slip. All you have to go is gather all your hair (make sure you don’t leave out any stray), sweep it up to your crown and put a hair tie around it. Also, for a sleeker look, you can spritz some hair spray on your comb and pull back any stray hair on your crown.
 
Boho chic bandana look

On the days that your hair just does not seem to agree with you, tie it up in a bun and hold it back with a bandana on your crown. You can either wear it as a hairband or tie a knot on top of your head to give it a country-like vibe. This would work if your workplace doesn’t have a formal dress code
