It has been an interesting, albeit difficult, couple of months in quarantine for all of us. Some have turned into full time bakers and some have taken the extra time to hone their craft and hobbies.

Since offices are opening up again (with reduced capacity), there are a few things you need to get in line before going back to work. For instance, go into your wardrobe and put aside some comfy staples that also cover up most of your body. And as for the back-to-work glam, here some hairdos that are smart, easy to do, and will you get back to your old routine in no time!

A smart choice for someone who has a long commute to work; the sleek crown bun will keep your hair out of your face, and others on the metro. It is stylish, adds length to your face and very difficult to get wrong even if you have a couple of minutes to do it. For an added touch, let loose some hair near your ears to frame the side of your face.

Barrette clips are a smart investment to make when it comes to hair accessories. They are uber stylish, work well with thick hair and a chic statement accessory to add when you are running short on time. We love this stacked, double- barrette look which is simple, yet pretty, especially when you add some voluminous ringlets at the ends.

String tie a low pany and stack a bunch of hair ties on top of one another to create a fab look. Similar to the barrette clips we saw earlier, a jumbo bow or scrunchie will also go nicely with the trendy, slender low pony!

 

04. Power braid

Don’t stop at regular, clean braids while doing your hair for a long day of work. Power braids are done by first securing your hair in a tight low pony and braiding down the length. It is durable and looks edgy, especially if you deck out in formals daily and need a fun hairstyle to balance it out.

Pigtails might not scream ‘work hairstyle’ but when done low and paired with a couple of lean braids in the front, it can turn out to be very smart-looking. If you don’t have time to do out dutch braids, simple baby braids can replace them as well.
