6 Easy to Make Comfortable Work Hairstyles For Long Hair That Rock


Ladies who take care of themselves know this well: choosing the right work hairstyle is tricky.

You don’t want to wake up at 5 am every day to make your hair look nice. Yet, you don’t want it messy, greasy, or all over the place either.

Letting it get in the way of your work is out of the question, while work is obviously not the place to go for a seductive look.

A hint of sexy is OK, though.

On top of all that, your hairstyle should be comfortable.

Yep, having a beautiful work hairstyle can be quite challenging and to help you deal with it, we give you this list of 6 gorgeous, classic hairstyles, all quick and easy to make.

Just make sure your hair is well nourished and healthy first and you can print and keep this list in your bathroom cabinet for inspiration.


It doesn’t get any easier than making ponytails. Whether your hair is clean or not so much (it happens!), the ponytail is the fastest and cutest solution for your comfortable work hairstyle. Also, when you tighten your ponytail with a hair tie, we suggest you take one lock of your hair, wrap it around the ponytail and pin it under.

#1 Extra high ponytail

What you’ll need:

  • A comb or a brush
  • Good quality hairspray to keep hold of your hairstyle throughout the day.
  • Elastic hair tie
  • A few bobby pins

What to do:

Thoroughly brush your hair. Apply the hairspray all over it. Gently pull it into a ponytail, making sure that the hair on the surface of your head is nice and smooth. Wrap the hair tie around your ponytail and tighten it (but not too tight, or your head might hurt). And then, insert the hairpins on each side of the hair tie and stick it into your hair. It’ll work as a wire armature for sculptures and make your ponytail seem live and perky.

#2 Super volume double ponytail

Super volume double ponytail

Shh!, this is a secret tip. To make your ponytail appear longer and thicker, you want to make two and then hide one of them. This work hairstyle truly does rock.

What you’ll need:

  • A comb or a brush
  • Hairspray – optional, but if you need your ponytail to sit tight on your head throughout the day, good hairspray is the way to go.
  • 2 hair ties
  • A jaw clip

What to do:

Comb your hair thoroughly and split it into two halves – top and bottom, one exactly below the other. Spray your hair with the hairspray. Secure your hair on top with a jaw clip while you put the hair from the bottom of your head into a ponytail.  And then repeat the step with the hair from the top.

This works well for any type of hair.


Buns are the ideal choice for any type of work. They are also the absolute best solution when you haven’t had the time to wash your hair.

Even though there are a few different types, the truth is every single bun is unique. Another cool thing about buns is that you can move them around your head. One day on top and the next day, the base of your neck can host the little fluffy top knot.

But, why settle for one? If you’re in your twenties (or younger) don’t hold back, 2 symmetrical buns will get your hair out of the way and be as “cute as a cupcake” work hairstyle.

#1 The doughnut bun

The doughnut bun

What you’ll need:

  • Bun helper
  • Hair tie
  • Bobby pins
  • Hairspray

What to do:

Decide where you want to place your bun. Or buns. If it’s more than one, split your hair into even sections and follow the steps for each of them.

Comb your hair and pull it into a ponytail. Wrap the hair tie a couple of times around, to tighten it. But don’t overdo it. Use hairspray to keep hold. Next, pull the ponytail through the bun helper and spread your hair around it as even as possible. And then tuck your hair under, while rolling the rest of the ponytail. When it’s comfortably nested on the top of your head, secure it with the bobby pins.

#2 Messy bun up-do

Messy bun up do

What you’ll need:

  • A soft brush or a wide-tooth comb
  • Elastic hair tie
  • Hair mousse – not essential but if your hair is too clean, too soft or you want extra volume, a well-chosen product should do the trick.
  • Hairspray

What to do:

Apply the mousse you picked evenly onto your hair.

Depending on the level of messiness you want to achieve, (don’t over mess it, it’s a work hairstyle after all) brush your hair, or even just use your fingers to comb through it and only brush out the bumps. Next, form a ponytail and wrap the elastic hair tie around it. Again, you can make it as tight or as loose as you want. Twist your ponytail and wrap it around itself. Secure it with another hair tie.

If your hair isn’t too slick and soft, you can spin your hair without tying it first, and put the hair tie when you do, to secure the whole bun.

Loose hair

Yes, it’s ok to let your hair loose at work as long as it’s not all wild, curly and fiery which can make you look unprofessional. Here are a couple of suggestions for the classic looks:

# 1 Sexy hint locks

Sexy hint locks

What you’ll need:

  • Curling iron
  • Hairspray

What to do:

Split your hair into 4 to 6 larger sections and curl the bottom halves only. Carefully remove the curling iron and be sure to give your curls enough time to cool off completely. When done, split them with your fingers, shake them up a bit and apply the hairspray.

#2 sleek and chic hair day

sleek and chic hair day

What you’ll need:

  • Deep conditioner
  • Hair straightener – Bauer professional ceramic straightener is an excellent choice.

What to do:

Do not use a hair straightener if your hair is too dry, or damaged or if you didn’t get rid of split ends. Also, it’s important to deep condition it before you start ironing.

Dry and comb your hair first. Next, split it into a few sections, and then iron one at a time.

Last but not the least

Ladies, please don’t forget about the accessories. Beautiful and stylish clips, head wraps, headbands, pins, and ribbons will be the cherry on top of your professional yet chic work hairstyles.
