Sometimes, the last thing you feel like doing in the morning is your hair. And yes — by “sometimes,” I mean “daily.” If your previous day started with an early-morning meeting and ended with way too many rounds at happy hour with your coworkers, you’ll want to find easy hairstyles to wear to work in the morning. After all, wouldn’t you much rather spend the extra time in bed?
Even on those can-barely-open-my-eyes, need-a-latte-ASAP mornings, you have a ton of options: You can throw your hair into a chic and classic top knot, try something new with a pulled-together (yet adorably boho) braided look, or add feminine waves for a soft, professional ‘do. In other words, you don’t have to convince your office that the “bedhead” look is so in right now.
These looks are so easy that you’ll still have time to go to Starbucks, grab your soy chai, and spend your precious pre-work hour scrolling through your social media feeds (we’re all guilty). In no time, “topknot and Instagram” will be your new “Netflix and chill.” Just follow these simple steps, snag the necessary products and accessories, and every day at the office will be a fabulous hair day.
Soft & Beachy Waves
Easy to achieve with just a few tools and products for an effortless-looking ‘do, soft and beachy waves are perfect for any day at the office. Just twist in your toustles with a damage-free ceramic wand, upgrade the casual look with a Gatsby-style hair band for instant work-event appropriateness, and don’t forget to add shine and hold with a wavy finishing spray. They bring the beach right to your desk (just please don’t remove your shoes).
Soft & Beachy Waves Essential No. 1: Ceramic Curling Wand With Digital Display
To achieve this free-flowing ‘do, start by prepping your hair with thermal protecting spray before using a ceramic curling wand — it comes with a heat styling glove to create easy, ouch-free waves. Just twist one-inch strands around the wand to create a soft style that’s great for work. The wand has an automatic off button, so don’t worry if you’re rushing and accidentally forget to press it.
Soft & Beachy Waves Essential No. 2: Gatsby-Level Bling for Unexpected Edge
To add an eye-catching detail into this feminine style, incorporate a sparkly, ’20s-inspired headband. Fans say this beaded, hand-sewn hair accessory is equally as cute as it is comfortable. With its retro influence, you’ll add a bit of flapper girl fun to even the most boring work event.
Soft & Beachy Waves Essential No. 3: Wavy Hair Finishing Spray for Hold & Shine
When you’re finished, spray this maximum hold finishing spray to secure your look. It’s created with silk extract to give wavy hair 24-hour, soft-to-touch hold. No more frozen-solid fly-aways in your ‘do!
