If your office hairstyle usually means a quick brush through and leaving your hair open because you just don’t have the time for anything more, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we have curated a list of five super quick and easy celebrity-inspired hairstyles that are totally work-appropriate and don’t require more than five minutes! Isn’t that awesome?

01. Top knot

We personally love top knots as they are such a cool and simple way to conceal greasy roots on days when you couldn’t be bothered with washing your hair. To recreate this hairstyle, start with spraying the Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo all over your roots. Then gather all your hair in a high ponytail and twist it to form a bun. Secure it with a few bobby pins and loosen some face-framing tendrils from the front. And voila! You’re good to go.


02. Loose waves

One of the things we absolutely love about loose, big waves is that they pair well with all outfits and require very little effort too. Start with brushing your hair to get rid of any knots and spray a generous amount of the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray all over your strands. Create big waves using a curling rod and gently tousle your hair to loosen the waves a little bit.


03. Textured low ponytail

Another quick and easy work hairstyle we find ourselves creating often is this textured low ponytail like Alia Bhatt’s. This hairstyle not only takes very little time but also looks really chic and trendy with formal outfits. Start by gathering all your hair in a low ponytail and secure it in place with a clear elastic. Then take a few strands of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around the rubber band to conceal it. Loosen a few face-framing tendrils to further add to the effortlessly sexy vibe of this hairstyle.


04. Half-up half-down

We simply love how chic and versatile half-up half-down hairstyles look, even when paired with formal outfits. And the best part? Recreating this hairstyle takes hardly any time. Start by brushing your hair to get rid of any knots. Divide your hair into two parts from the crown area; now take the top section and make it into a bun. Secure in place with a few bobby pins and this super easy hairstyle is ready in no time!


05. Simple textured braid

You can never go wrong with a braided hairstyle, irrespective of the occasion. Braids are a quick and simple way to break hair monotony and give your work look a stylish update. We love this chic messy, three-strand braid on Kareena. Starting from the crown area, divide your hair into three sections and start braiding. Keep on adding more sections as you go along until you reach the end. Then secure with a hair elastic.

Go on; try these celebrity hairstyles for work this week and tell us how they turned out for you.
