1. Part your hair in the middle and wear it behind you
This is seriously an underrated hairstyle.
You can part your hair in the middle with a fine-toothed comb and then wear it behind you.
You can either get a layered cut or a straight cut – both will look amazing.
Because the hair is not falling in your face – it looks very professional and sleek.
This can be worn by both curly and straight hair and honestly, most people can pull this off.
2. Get a blunt cut with bangs
This hairstyle is clean and simple.
Think Cleopatra but modern.
Blunt cuts look great on straight hair and curly hair.
Pair it with a fringe in the front and you’re good to go.
This hairstyle is very low-maintenance and if you have short hair, you can get a haircut that ends at your chin-level.
If you are lacking volume, make sure you use a good hair mousse like this one.
3. Get a crew cut
A crew cut is one of the most low-maintenance and stylish hairstyles you can wear.
It is extremely classy and professional and you can definitely pull it off with some cute studs and high heels.
4. A side sweep
You can transform a normal blunt cut into a beautiful hairstyle just by doing a side-parting and coming your hair sideways.
Make one part voluminous and tuck the other side behind your ear.
This is a hairstyle that I commonly sport and I have curly hair.
If you have straight hair and want more texture, use a curling iron like this to get some, nice loose curls.
5. Wear your hair in a crimped or wavy style
If you are comfortable letting your hair down, it’s totally okay to wear it loose.
You can add texture to your hair by crimping it or making it wavy.
Or you can use a curling iron to wear it in loose curls.
This will look good with suits and as long as it’s not bothering you or getting in your face – it’s totally fine!
6. A low ponytail with bangs
This is a classic that will never fail you.
If you love your bangs, then pair it with a low ponytail right at the neck.
Just tie your hair at the base of your head and secure it with a hairtie and you’re done!
This hairstyle looks great with suits!
7. Half up and half down
This is such a fun and easy hairstyle to do with curly hair or straight hair.
It looks amazing and it’s really practical.
The top portion of the hair is tied back so it doesn’t get in your face, and you get the elegant classy look from the lower portion of your hair.
It’s a win-win scenario.
Just divide your hair vertically into 2 sections.
And secure the top portion in a ponytail or a bun using a hair tie to achieve this look.
You can pair it up with hoop earrings (big or small) and this looks great with suits.
8. A middle parting with loose curls on either side
This hair style works on hair of any length.
You simply have to do a middle parting and then curl each section of hair to get some nice bouncy curls.
If you have curly hair, then just do the middle parting and style your hair naturally.
This works great for straight or curly hair.
9. A high ponytail with accent earrings
I love high ponytails and buns because they pair so well with statement earrings.
I’m all for bright colors.
And high ponytails look good for any kind of hair.
So whether you have straight hair, kinky hair, curly hair or wavy hair, simply gather up all your hair and secure it at the top of your head in a high ponytail.
Match that with a daring eyeliner and bright earrings.
This looks great in any setting.
10. Twisted bun
This is a hairstyle I’ve seen air hostesses doing for years and I always thought it was super complicated.
But I found this Youtube Tutorial on how to do a twisted bun and I was floored on how easy it is!
11. Gelled back look
Do you remember Trinity from The Matrix?
This particular gelled back hair look is awesome for short hair and pairs very well with a suit.
If you are looking for a hairstyle that is easy, low-maintenance and works for curly hair or straight hair, this is your best bet!
You will be ready within 2 minutes in the morning with this one!
12. Mid ponytail with hoop earrings
If you haven’t guessed by now, I love hoop earrings.
I feel it looks great on women who can pull of ponytails.
And ponytails and hoop earrings look really great on a suit – it doesn’t matter what kind of hair you have – kinky, curly, wavy or straight. It will work well!
This hairstyle is for anyone who wants to wear long hair professionally.
Just gather all your hair into a tight ponytail at the back – preferably around the middle. And pair it with some awesome hoop earrings like these.
13. A bun with a pouf
I honestly love this hairstyle.
The volume of the pouf on top of the head really slims down the face and I feel it looks great on anyone who wants to look taller and slimmer.
This is such an easy hairstyle to do and it can be worn by hair of any kind. Here is a simple tutorial to achieve this look.
14. Get a bobcut of any kind
Bobcuts are beautiful, classy and timeless.
There are so many different kinds of bobcuts you can get based on your hairtype and face shape so be careful when choosing one.
I would suggest going to a professional hairdresser with photos and then asking them their opinion on what would look great on you.
Cornrows and twists are good hairstyles because they are protective.
You can tie it in a bun behind you or a nice ponytail if it’s too long and you’re worried it will fall over your shoulder.
You can pair cornrows with big hoop earrins – they go really well together.
16. A top knot with bangs
You can use a sockbun to create a bun with high volume and honestly it’s a hairstyle anyone can wear.
It looks great on curly hair and I sported this a lot when I went to the mall to work on my laptop.
It can be paired with bangs to look a little more casual and it’s looks really great with suits.
- Gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Make sure that your ponytail is smooth and free of tangles.
- Take a clean sock and cut off the toe end.
- Roll the sock into a doughnut shape and place it on top of your ponytail.
- Spread your ponytail out over the sock bun and tuck the ends underneath the sock bun.
- Use bobby pins to secure the sock bun in place. Make sure to use enough bobby pins to keep the sock bun in place, but not so many that it becomes visible.
- Smooth out any flyaways and adjust the bun to your desired shape.
- Finish with a light mist of hairspray to help keep the sock bun in place.
17. Wear your hair naturally
Most workplaces are embracing individuality and as long as you wear your hair in a manner that isn’t too distracting and is comfortable for you, then it shouldn’t be a problem.
Wear your hair naturally – just the way it is.
You’ll never know if it looks good or not unless you give it a try!
I hope this post helped give you some great ideas on how to wear your hair.
These hairstyles go with suits in my opinion.
