Go from the boardwalk to the boardroom with a street-style inspired up-do. We've scoured the pavement to find five easy looks that are perfect for the work day.
The chic chignon
The chignon has always been an office wear staple, but this street-style take on the look is a little more tousled. Perched high on top of the head, this chignon keeps your hair out of the way as you work, while also flattering a long and elegant neckline.
The slick bun
A slick bun is another office favourite for its workplace practicality. However this sleek and smart bun is placed a little lower down for a more refined finish. To create the look, simply start with a ponytail and then twist the tail into a bun shape. Finish with a touch of L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure hairspray to set the style and smooth down any flyaways.
The clipped knot
Need to focus on the task at hand without worrying about what your hair is doing? Then this clipped knot is the style for you. The little knot sits low at the nape of the neck and is held together securely by either a clip or a clasp. This no-nonsense look is perfect for everyday wear – or you can jazz it up by adding in some oversized accessories.
The loose tail
Ponytails have an unjustified reputation for being boring, but this loose interpretation has a relaxed and feminine feel. This hairstyle tames your mane, while still having a soft face framing finish. For a bit of extra oomph try backcombing and applying L'Oréal Professionnel Série Expert Volume Master before creating the pony.
The high flicked bun
Take a high ponytail, fold it over and voila, you've got yourself a high flicked bun! This quick'n'easy hairstyle is perfect for mornings when you've got very little time to get ready and need to look your best. Healthy hair is a must with this look so be sure to use a L'Oréal Professionnel hair care range suited to your current hair condition.
