We 100% believe the only thing you should focus on at work is putting your nose to the grindstone and being a total boss — regardless of whether or not you really are one. That said, a put-together look can only cement your confidence and make sure you're presenting your best self in every spontaneous meeting. And, yes, that includes your hair.
Even so, we find ourselves rotating just three options during the workweek: a ponytail, down and straight, and a top knot. It's in part because we do our hair last (usually while running out the door, five minutes late), but also because we fear done hair might look too done for the office.
To find some work-perfect styles that we can do in a snap, we tapped hairstylist Deborah Brider and TRESemmé's Perfectly (un)Done line. These tutorials break down styles that manage to be effortless while looking like they mean business. And, because we are only here to help, we're pairing the hairstyles with some work-appropriate outfits to match. That way, when you get that surprise promotion, you'll look extra-polished accepting it.
