#1 Short Stack
A half up half down do is ideal for security without looking too done. Secure the upper half well and avoid using hairspray as it can cause breakage. Instead reach for a serum or volumizing spray to keep texture and body without torturing your ends.
#2 Sleek French Twist
This elegant twist works on all lengths, pulling together a perfect look for a long day in the office. Stock up on bobby pins for this one, matte holds best. Follow the steps for a little slice of chic with all day durability.
#3 Add a clip
In fear of fly aways unleashing themselves at the slightest of breezes, a slick ponytail offers no movement style. With a texturising spray on the ends and a pulled back style you’ll be free to go about your day no stress. Add a clip or ribbon for a touch of polish, evidencing the effort you made to look like this amidst the mild natural disaster of sorts going on outside.
I wish I could pull of the messy bun, it’s the ultimate no hassle hairstyle. But if like me hot mess devolves into straight up mess very quickly, perhaps a more refined style is a better choice. This bun is only a twist or two and looks immaculate as well as a lot harder than it was to achieve. Win.
#5 Donut Bun
An item from Priceline has never proved so useful, but a donut bun can lift your bun to new heights, fake thickness and provide never ending styling options. For days where you’d rather swamp yourself in doonas, donut buns offer a little solace hiding bad hair days like no other.
