Your hairstyle for the office has to fit a lot of criteria. It has to look professional, stay out of your way, and not require constant upkeep. That’s a lot of pressure for your locks. Fortunately, there are a number of classy, office-appropriate hairstyles that don’t take too much time from your morning routine and go beyond the slicked-back ponytail.
Of course, when it comes to hairdos, one style does not necessarily fit all workplaces. As much as you may want to bust out the pastel hair chalk, magical mermaid hair, or '90s butterfly clips during the 9 to 5 grind, certain hairstyles may not be deemed appropriate for certain offices. A banker, for example, may have a drastically different do than a tattoo shop owner. (If not, sounds like you work for one kickass bank.) Luckily, most styles should fit in with the majority of office environments, and you can always make adjustments to suit your particular workplace’s dress code. (Cue flashbacks to certain schools and their policies against distracting hairstyles.)
To liven up your work look, here are eight chic, sleek hairstyles for any office environment. These super simple styles will give you a little creative outlet during the workweek.
