Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing 2 easy hairstyles for work that you can recreate quickly before you rush out of the door in the mornings. These hairstyles are effortlessly chic and neat, and look like you put in a lot of time and effort into them. I’ve used BBLUNT products which make styling your hair at home super easy. The first one is a Sleek Double-Pony that is ideal for day-to-day wear and really quick to create. The second one is a Textured Low-Bun that works perfectly for an office party.
Look 1 : Double Pony
- I’m going to use the BBLUNT Back-To-Life Dry Shampoo on the roots to soak up the excess oil. I avoid shampooing my hair as much as possible, but two days post shampoo the roots tend to get a greasy and fall flat. The dry shampoo helps freshen up the roots and adds a little texture to the hair.
- Shake the bottle well and spray the Dry Shampoo from a distance of roughly six inches from the roots. Part the hair in different areas to spray the roots evenly. Use your fingertips to gently work the dry shampoo into the roots.
- Create a section of hair, dividing the hair along a horizontal line right above the ear and tie it into a simple ponytail.
- Gather the bottom section of the hair and tie it into a ponytail as well. Make sure the higher ponytail blends smoothly into the lower ponytail. Your double pony is ready!
This trick of one pony over the other makes your hair appear more bulky and your ponytail more bouncy. It also keeps the hair away from falling on your face all day while looking elegant.
Look 2 : Textured Low-Bun
With the party season coming up soon, you’re sure to be attending a few office parties. This textured low bun looks chic and polished and the best part is that it doesn’t take too long to create if you know you’re using the right products. Moreover, it’s beginner-friendly as well!
- I’m using the BBLUNT High Definition Curl Curl-Defining Leave-In Cream on damp hair, working it along the lengths of the hair. This cream protects against heating tool damage which is a relief as I’m going to use one in the next step.
- I’m then taking a curling iron and roughly adding some curls to my hair. The curl cream helps hold the curl while adding texture to the hair which really helps in holding the bun together. It also adds some much needed volume for short-medium length hair while working with buns. Since the hair is going to go up in a bun anyway, the curls don’t have to be perfect.
- Next, take a section of hair on either side of the head and tie the remaining in a low pony tail. Then create a small well right above the band and invert the ponytail through the well.
- Take the sections on either side of the head, twist them a little and push them through the well created in the previous step.
- Secure the end of the ponytail with a hair tie and then tuck the end in the well created in the previous steps. Secure it using hair pins to prevent the hair from falling out.
- Adjust the side sections so the hairstyle looks balanced and secure them with pins or clips if necessary. Your textured low bun is ready!
