Post Labor Day Blues: 5 Best “Work” Hairstyles

Posted on

Welcome back hair divas! We just want to take a moment to shine the spotlight on the hardworking women out there. The women who go to their job day in and day out to provide for themselves and their families. You know who you are, and we salute you. Now, just because Labor Day has come and gone, that doesn’t mean that we can’t do a little something for all of our followers who are in the work force. This week, we want to take a little time to give you ladies some inspiration for what you can do to tame your hair at work. It doesn’t matter if you're natural or relaxed, we want to give you the run-down on some of the best work hairstyles to wrap up your 2018.  


Twisted Bun


When you’re at work, there seems to be a stigma that if you want to appear professional, you have to keep your hair out of your face. I don’t make the rules girl, I’m just the messenger. With that in mind, I think it’s safe to say that this hairstyle deserves to be at the top of the list. All you have to do is put all of your hair into a high bun. From there, separate your hair into 5-6 sections, and two- strand twist each one. Wrap the hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Max time for this style: 6 minutes.


Pinned Up Updo


Now this one may look difficult, but this is one of those ones that you actually can prep for overnight. I know we said earlier that work hairstyles should be out of the face, but this one is just so soft yet confident that it deserves to be put on the list. You can achieve this look by simply adding perm rods to your hair the night before, then removing them in the morning. Adding pins to the back will give you the fauxhawk look.  Don’t forget to add a little bit of Shedavi Elixir to make them curls pop and look moisturized!


Braided Crown


Some people would consider this a goddess braid, but because the braids are underhanded, we’re going to name it the braided crown. This style is very easy to accomplish, keeps your hair out of your face, and it gives people something to look at when looking at the back of your head. Start with either a center part or a side part, but do not put the hair into two sections. Instead, this is one of those situations where you’re going to have to brush your hair into the bowl method which means having your hair come down all around the sides, nape, and crown of your hair. This makes it so that as you come around with your braids, there won’t be any parts in the middle. Braid from the crown to the nape, making sure to keep as close to the edges as possible. Do the same to the other side of your head and secure the ends with bobby pins. If you’re quick about braiding, then this style should only take about 7 minutes to complete.  


Goddess Twist with a Low Bun


Goddess braids are really one of the most elegant styles that you can add to your tresses. However, everyone cannot braid. On top of that, everyone might not be able to braid fast. The whole purpose of this article is to give you some work inspirations that can save you time, not cause you to struggle in the morning to get out the house at a decent hour. For this reason, we wanted to show you a variation of the braided crown: the goddess twist with a bun.  This is one of those styles that when paired with a bad suit, you know that that woman means business. Getting the look is easy enough. Part your hair in the front and separate into two sections. Keep close to your edges and twist your hair towards the back of your hair. Do the same thing to the other side. Secure the hair into a bun in the back or your head and you’re good to go. It’s okay if your bun isn’t big. This style works regardless of your hair’s thickness.




If it’s one thing we can say, there is nothing quite like a set of clip-ins to switch up your whole look and only take seconds to complete. Start in the back and work your way to the front with your clip ins. If you want your hair to look like the image above, just pin the sides and the front back to show your beautiful face.
