If alternating out and down locks with a ponytail most days is as creative as you get when it comes to styling your hair for work then these quick and easy hairstyle ideas could be just what you're looking for.

Relaxed Waves

Model with long wavy hairAn easy way to add a touch of style to your hair with little effort is to try out some relaxed waves. They're easy because you can literally create a wave in your sleep by plaiting or braiding your hair in large sections the night before, and then releasing your waves the next morning for a fun 'do with plenty of pizazz.


Easy Half Up Half Down Hairdo

All it takes is a middle part and the two front sections of hair on either side of the part pinned back with hair pins into the rest of your hair. The result is a pretty look that'll take you less than 10 minutes to style.


Messy Updo

Model with messy updoFor those who like to wear their hair tied back, or for those with jobs that require tied back locks, a messy updo is right on trend at the moment. The key to this look is keeping your strands loose and not being afraid to let them create a romantic style around your face. Pin or tie your hair back using a classic ponytail or a bun and add hair accessories it you want to spice it up.



Model with long hair and a braided fringeOne of the easiest ways to give your hair some quick styling when you're low on time (read as: running late for work!) is with braids. Just add a side hair part, grab your front section of hair (or bangs if you have them) and braid your hair across your forehead, finishing and pinning the end behind your ear. It's a touch of pretty glamour that beats just brushing your hair and rushing out the door.


Super Straight Locks

Super straight locks automatically create a polished, professional image and look great when teamed with a middle hair part and plenty of healthy shiny hair strands.
