Don’t forget your roots. Try these professional hairstyles for work.

It is often heard that curly hair should be straightened to look more professional. There is a common view that curly hair looks too untamed and wild for a professional setting. For those of you who spend so much time straightening your hair to keep your boss happy, I am here to tell you there are options. There are several hairstyles that are acceptable at work, but stays true to your natural ways.

1. The bob is a great look. It shows off your curls while giving you a professional grown up look. This might be a good choice for you. Maintaining a bob requires frequent visits to the hair salon to get cuts, which in turn will make your hair healthier. This cut is good for square, oval, and long faces.

2. Braids can look anywhere from casual to elegant depending on how you dress it up. It is tamed and tucked away from your face giving you a clean look. For long hair braids can be trendy and look very appealing at work.

3. High buns are my favorite. It is easy to create and can be done if you have no time to do anything else with your hair in the morning. what’s best about the bun is that it is so effortless but at the same time it can look so elegant.

5. Hair accessories can be fun. Anywhere from bobby pins, to head bands, and much much more, you can decorate your hair to make it look lavishing. There are so many bows, ribbons, and ties you can choose from to create the exact look that you want.

Cuts and hairstyles that will make you look like a chic rockstar

I’ve heard plenty of times that I could never get my hair cut in layers because my hair would look too puffy and wild. What I noticed was that all the hairstylists that were telling me this were straight haired women who probably have trouble cutting curly hair. It is difficult to detect the length of our hair when it is shriveled up. And as we know, there might be some curls that are tighter than others. Another reason why they might be saying this is that there are some cuts LOOK wrong because the shape of the layers are WRONG.

Ladies, this “no layer” concept is is a myth. Layers can accentuate your look adding more shape and volume. Layers are perfect for both short and long hair. The shorter layered look is called a bob. This particular look is better for round, square, and oval shaped heads. Although it is a beautiful look, not all girls can pull it off. Here is an example of a bob.

With this type of cut, there is no need to spend hours of styling your hair because this in itself is a great look to show off. The girls who are able to pull this look off should be proud because not a lot can.
