Top 10 Hairstyles for Professional Women

Top 10 Hairstyles for Professional Women

December 8, 2023

The first thing that someone notices about you is your appearance. This includes your hairstyle and how your hair is kept. In a professional working environment, it is important to maintain a sophisticated hairstyle. If you have had the same hairstyle for a while or are looking to change up your style, here is a quick guide to some hairstyles for professional women.

Maintaining a sophisticated appearance is important to the future of your profession. Taking care of your appearance shows your employer and coworkers that you take your job seriously and that you care about the success of the business. Corporate hairstyles for females should be neat, out of your face, and not time-consuming to manage. 

It would be best if you avoided any provocative hairstyles, such as mohawks or hairstyles with bold undercuts or colors. Edgy hairstyles tend to give a dark vibe, which may not be suitable for a business woman's hairstyle. You should also avoid any unnecessary hair accessories. You should stick with small, neutral accessories rather than large bold, colored bows, clips, or headbands. 

#1 Combed Back Bob

A combed- back bob is a short hairstyle that is super simple to do but looks great. You can comb your hair straight back and add a little product, such as gel, to keep your hair back. You could also add a tasteful headband to keep your hair back. 

#2 Simple Up-Do With Bangs

A simple up-do is a very classy hairstyle. A low twisted ballerina bun or a French twist are always sophisticated classics. You could modernize them by making a double bun or by adding a simple braid.

#3 Loose Highlighted Waves

This look is beautiful on anyone and is also super easy to do for busy business women. Just remember, in order to remain professional, keep your hair away from your face. 

#4 Bob With Soft Bangs and Outward Curls

This look is a short hairstyle with bangs. Adding a little outward curl to the ends of the bob is very easy to do and gives a bob a little lift. 

#5 Wavy Side Ponytail

A wavy side ponytail is a modest and simple hairstyle for corporate females. The hair tie will keep your hair neat and tidy and away from your face. You could loosely braid the side ponytail while it is slightly damp and let your hair air dry, or use a hairdryer to dry it.  When it is dry, and you take the braid out, you will have beautiful wavy curls. 

#6 Messy Bun

Possibly one of the most popular hairstyles is the messy bun. Although the name has a slightly negative connotation, a messy bun can be a professional look. Put your hair in a ponytail and gently twist your hair from base to end. Then, wrap the twisted hair into a loose bun. You can secure it with a hair tie or bobby pins, but make sure it is loose. 

#7 Simple Twisted Top Knot

A top knot is a great hairstyle for a professional. Make a high ponytail and divide it into two even sections. Twist the sections up a bit and wrap them around each other. Once all the hair is fully wrapped around, secure it in place with a few bobby pins. 

#8 Long Straight Hair With Bangs

A long, sleek, straight hairstyle is also a sophisticated classic. Adding bangs, such as semi-circular bangs, is a way to modernize it and change up a hairstyle that may have previously had no bangs. There are many choices for bang shapes including, straight and jagged, blunt, and cropped. 

#9 Super High Ponytail With Wrapped Hair

This is another look that is very easy to execute. All you have to do is put your hair in a super high ponytail, grab a bit of hair and wrap it around the hair tie to cover it. You can make the wrapped hair loose or tight depending on what look you are going for. You can tuck the end of the wrap into the hair tie or use bobby pins to secure it. 

#10 Wavy Layered Bob

Another easy, low-maintenance hairstyle is a wavy layered bob. The purpose of cutting layers into hair is to help create volume where there is none. Cutting some layers into a bob, whether it is a short bob or long bob, is a great way to change your look.
