When choosing hairstyles for women, it’s important to consider what you’ll be doing, where you’ll be going, and how you want to look. Looking stylish and pretty is obviously something you desire, but trying to get through a busy workday with your hair falling in your face is going to get annoying pretty fast. If you live a busy life, you need simple hairstyles for women that are suitable for both work and play. Luckily, we can give you quite a few tips that go beyond the basic ponytail.
1. Flipped Ponytail
This pretty updo is nice looking, easy to create, and suitable for the office, the gym, or a fun night out with the girls. First, pull your hair up into a high ponytail. Next, take the bottom half of the ponytail and tuck it up and under the elastic band. You can either leave it tucked and loose or continue pulling through for an interesting flipped and twisted effect.
2. Messy, “Undone” Updo
This updo will look like it took hours of planning, but it’s actually incredibly easy! First, tease the bottom half of your hair and twist it into a messy bun. Secure it using bobby pins before making a flipped ponytail with the top half of your hair. Wrap and pin the tips around the bun below and secure with plenty of hairspray.
The result is a complex-looking style that you will be proud to show off! It’s dressy and feminine enough for a date, but it also looks great with casual office wear.
3. Classic Low Chignon
This look is one of the most classically beautiful hairstyles for women. It looks good with red-carpet dresses, stylish office wear, or even your casual dinner attire. To create it, clip the top half of your hair up to get it out of the way. Tease and fluff the bottom and then pull it into a tucked-under ponytail bun.
Next, take the top half of your hair and divide it into two sections. Take the left section, comb until smooth and pull it down over the right side of the bun, and pin it in place using a bobby pin. It works best if you stick the bobby pin into the bottom part of the bun to ensure it remains invisible.
Do the same with the upper-right section of hair, and you will end up with a sleek and sexy style that helps keep your hair out of your face.
4. The Ballerina’s Bun
The ballerina’s bun is another pretty updo that works well with a wide variety of outfits and situations. However, this look will only work if your hair is long enough to be pulled into a high ponytail.
If it is, take that ponytail and pull it around to make a pretty round bun. Take the loose ends of the ponytail and pin them under. Use more pins to create a neat, tight appearance, and use less for a messier bun. The choice is yours!
