It’s 6 o’clock and the shrill sound of the alarm interrupts your dream – beep beep beep… Hit snooze and a doze a little longer, we’ll have you work ready in no time with these 5 quick and easy updo hairstyles you can wear any day of the working week.
1. French Twist
2. Plaited Bun
This easy work hairstyle updo is two simple hairstyles rolled into one - a plaited ponytail and a hair bun. Simps! A tip, if you’re working with clean hair, add grit with Davroe Texture Clay before styling.
You can either secure your hair into a high ponytail then plait it before twisting it around to create a ballerina bun or gather your hair at your nape and plait it before twisting into a low bun before pinning into place. For a textured finish tease out the plait before twisting into a bun.
3. Low Bun
Upgrade an uncouth messy bun with a low elegant bun that incites an air of diplomacy – think classic librarian simplicity, feminine with a hint of formality. A low bun looks great on all hair types, and better still you can fashion it on either clean hair or second day hair. Control frizz and flyaways, and add shine with De Lorenzo Elements Fire Afterglow.
4. Bubble Pony
Pull up the covers and stay in bed a little longer, the bubble ponytail is the easiest of easy updos for work. Add this simple ponytail with a twist to your hairstyle rotation. It’s stylish yet simple, you’ll love it!
To create a bubble pony, just tie hair up into a ponytail and then every 5cm or so down the ponytail tie another elastic, continuing until you reach the end. Pinch out hair to “fill” bubbles. That’s it! Keep it simple, or jazz it up with some ribbon at the start of each bubble or use scrunchies.
