Hair is an important part of our personality. Besides make-up, your hair style also plays an important role in defining you and making an impression on others. Girls/women in particular are usually very picky about the way they carry their hair.
Here is a list of 10 hairstyles for work and office which will give you a makeover:
Waterfall Braids: The waterfall braid definitely takes a few tries before you’ll have it perfectly, but the final result is so pretty, it’s totally worth it.
Starting near your hairline, pick up three strands of hair, as if you’re starting a French braid. Cross the strand closest to the top of your head over the middle section. Cross the bottom section over the new middle section. Cross the new top section over the new middle, and then the bottom over the middle. Drop the middle strand down, so it blends in with the rest of your hair. Pick up a piece about the same size from near your part. This strand becomes your new top section—cross it over the middle to continue the braid. Cross the bottom strand over the new section, and repeat all the way around your head. When you get behind your opposite ear, do a normal, three-strand braid for about an inch. Secure the braid behind your ear with a bobby pin.
Fishtail Braids: This braid is perfect for bad hair days or when you have a long day ahead and would like to keep your hair out of your face.
Part your hair down the center. Beginning on the right side of your part at your forehead, twist a one-inch section of hair away from your face. Use a comb to separate a 1/2-inch section right below the first section along your face and twist that piece away from your face, combining it with the first piece. Continue adding 1/2-inch pieces along your hairline down to your neck. Use a clip or a bobby pin to hold the hair in place at the nape of your neck. Repeat the twisting on the left side, starting at your forehead. When you reach the nape of your neck, unclip the right side and hold both the left and right sides in two separate sections. Pull a 1/2-inch section of hair from the right section and add it to the left section. Repeat with a piece from the left section, adding it to the right section. Continue adding 1/2-inch pieces down to the ends and secure with an elastic.
Side Braid Pony: Upgrade a classic pony by braiding a small section in the front before pulling it back.
Mini Knotted Braids: Rows of braids are both edgy and romantic. Use beach spray for mega texture before French-braiding four rows forward from your crown to your forehead, and tucking ends back and along the sides.
Faux Hawk Braid: Make four small ponytails down your head, twist them around one another, and pin the ends.
Mini Boho Braid: Create a deep side part and gather the front section of hair above your ear and braid it, leaving the rest of your hair loose.
Braided Headband: For grip, apply hair paste to fingers, and braid a small section above your left ear. Pin the plait near your right ear to make it look like a headband.
Sleek Side Braid: Part hair on the side, and begin braiding right below your ear, wrapping hair to the side as you go. Secure with hair band, and run a smoothing serum over hair to tame flyaways and add shine.
Braid Within a Braid: Amp up a classic braid by dividing your hair in three sections and braiding one of those sections first.
Double Mini-Braided Bun: Braid two small sections of hair on each side of your head. Dab them with molding paste to get them to stay, and pull hair into a bun.
