The Deets

(1) High ponytail: Great for all those times when you need to speed up your AM routine. Plus, it’s perfect for “second-day” hair that hasn’t been washed. (Photo via Hello Fashion)

(2) Low sleek ponytail: One of our favorite professional looks (ideal for job interviews/big-time meetings). It’s also easy—just part hair down the middle, gather hair at the nape of your neck, smooth out bumps, and tie in an elastic holder. (Photo via Pink Peonies)

(3) Twisted ponytail: Our go-to ponytail alternative. Such a fabulous way to mix up the traditional slicked back look. (Photo via Happily Grey)

(4) Side braid: Another creative way to get hair out of your face during busy workdays. (P.S. We’re especially fond of braids on casual Fridays.) (Photo via Styled Snapshots)

(5) Top knot: Oh, the classic top knot! Where would we be without you? It’s also a good option for “second-day” hair. Check out this helpful tutorial on A Cup of Jo. (Photo via Cupcakes and Cashmere)

(6) Low chignon: Our current hairstyle obsession. The low chignon is a fresh look for the fall season ahead (but it’s also great for hot summer months). (Photo via Damsel in Dior)

(7) Soft waves: The ultimate hairstyle to take you from desk to dinner. Curl your hair before work, and you’ll be ready for any after-five occasion. (Photo via Gal Meets Glam)

(8) Blowout: A timeless and sophisticated look. And if you’re in need of a little R&R during a hectic workweek, we highly recommend indulging in a professional blowout. (Photo via The Classy Cubicle)

(9) Chic & straight: A hassle-free hairstyle that will get you through a couple of workdays with just a touch of dry shampoo. (Photo via Atlantic-Pacific)

(10) Half-up/half-down: The best of both worlds, and a fantastic way to change up your look if you religiously wear your hair down. (Photo via Brighton The Day)
