Numerous professions and roles require a plain, minimalist, classic and chic look. To avoid getting stuck with a routine hairstyle, here are five buns inspired by the red carpet to add some glamour to your everyday office look.
The words "classic", "understated" and "plain" don't necessarily have to mean "boring". To add some variety to your office hairstyles, be inspired by this selection of five celebrity hairstyles spotted on the red carpet.
Kate Hudson's topknot
Without a single hair out of place, this hairstyle remains floaty. This topknot is slightly chaotic yet restrained, making it the perfect way to add a touch of free spiritedness into your professional look.
Janelle Monae's graphic bun
To make the high bun trend even trendier, try out Janelle Monae's take on the look by moving the bun to the front of the head. A mix between rockabilly hair and the ballerina bun, this hairstyle is original, while at the same time elegant.
Dakota Johnson's bun with front locks
With its bangs and layers at the front, and a super-tight bun at the back, we like the unexpected nature of this two-textured chignon. Dakota Johnson has found the key to holding back her long layered bun and showing off her bangs with perfect femininity.
Kate Winslet's romantic chignon
To soften a tailored look with a pencil skirt, which risks looking severe, there's nothing better than a romantic bun. We're inspired by Kate Winslet's version, with just two locks left loose at the front (we do have to stay professional, after all).
Christina Hendricks' 'low bun'
Even though the top knot is currently in its hour of glory, you can still wear your bun low, like Christina Hendricks. The low bun is a timeless look, and whether you go for the pinup style or a slightly disheveled look, the end result will be beautiful and your hair will be elegantly swept away.
