In an open-plan office or a meeting, it's considered "appropriate" to keep your hair tied back. But this doesn't have to mean you're restricted to boring hairstyles: here are five elegant and fun looks to inspire you at the office!
The side ponytail
Between a mermaid braid and a classic ponytail, this side-swept, shoulder-grazing style is a way of both freeing your face and showing off your long locks with pride. Whether you opt for a smooth or curly finish, it's a way of tying your hair back without bordering into banality...
The large black bandeau
Just as retro, but less "adult" than the classic headband, the black bandeau enables you to pull back bangs or layers at the front with panache. It's also a great solution for hiding hair you haven't had time to wash, which happens to the best of us when we have demanding professional lives!
The back-to-front bun
What about, instead of pinning our hair back into a bun...we did it at the front? This original hairstyle is elegant, but also has an unexpected and refreshing twist which shows off the neck in a unique way.
The French braid
It's not most people's go-to hairstyle for work, but the French braid, woven right from the roots, is a practical and stylish look. Although it's a classic style, it also works on bobs, and gives you an Slavic aura, which looks especially charming in winter.
The jeweled headband
A romantic chignon at work? Why not. But only if you replace the traditional flowery garland with a subtle jeweled headband, the perfect elegant accessory detail for your hairstyle and overall look.
