Modern Short Hair Styles that Give You a Professional Look
Five Modern, Short Hair Styles That Save You Time
Many professional women can save so much time if they do just the one thing. Choose a simple hairstyle that requires little maintenance. Think about it, we do so much with our hair. We wake up, we blow-dry it, we use tools to straighten the hair or add curls, we add gel to keep it in place and it normally takes us more than the first try for us to be satisfied with how our hair looks.
Below are five easy hairstyles that will suit everyone. Pick the style that will go with your workplace. If you work in a lawyer's office you can keep your hair long and wear it in a chignon bun. If you dare to cut your hair, a bob or pixie cut means less time to do your hair than wash your face. A ponytail will help you to look sleek during a meeting. If you're a doctor or nurse, nothing beats the practicality of the ponytail and still keep you looking professional. If you're worried that a pixie cut would not be festive enough for after-hours, perish that thought by using accessories. And the pixie cut will show off those beautiful earrings. If you work in a trendy office, try a loose braid so that you have a different but modern look from everyone else.
It's the simplest hairstyle there is. This look is great if your office is more trendy and you are in your twenties to early thirties. It has to look sleek, not curly. Aishwarya Rai, an Indian celebrity, executes a beautiful ponytail style.
Don't think of the bun as an old woman's hairstyle. It's a great way to keep long hair looking neat and professional and it's so easy to do. The most important thing to remember is not to keepy your bun severe, so don't pull you hair so tight, keep it relaxed and sleek. To achieve this look you can use gel or hairspray. The elegant chignon bun is classic and can take you from the boardroom to your office without worrying that your hair will be out of place. See the link below to pull together your own modern bun.
The relaxed braid is fairly new in the office. To make it look professional instead of little-girl, you actually braid your hair, and bring it over your shoulder to one side. The braid needs to be loose and you need to either use gel or hairspray so that stray ends of hair don't stick out, after you're done the look is sleek.
The classic bob cut is one of those hairstyles that shows such versatility. The bob can be long enough to reach down to your shoulder or short, as in chin-length. You can wear it with bangs or swept to the side. You can have the back cut shorter than the front for swingier hair or one length for a classic look.
Katie Holmes shows what you can do with the bob cut. Wear it with bangs, a center part and hair styled under for a classic bob or style the hair with a side part, no bangs and the ends out for a windswept effect.
