When you think of working from home hair, an image of an unbrushed messy bun complete with all of the flyaways probably comes to mind. Not for us. We believe that maintaining your styling routine in the morning is one of the easiest ways to keep your cool when hunkered down at home. Sure, the first few days of not having to worry about your appearance and wearing sweats on the couch seemed too good to be true, but after a while, greasy hair half falling out of your scrunchie can make you feel unmotivated and grungy. And when the time comes that you’ve reached that conclusion, we’re happy to say that we’re here for you with what we’ve dubbed “working from home hair”. WFH hair doesn’t require much time, nor effort, but these looks are a sure way to get you feeling back to your beautiful pre-social distancing self. Scroll through to discover working from home hair, do care.

The Working From Home Hair Lookbook: 5 Effortless Styles

Realistically, you’re still going to want to spend minimal time fussing with your hair in front of the mirror every morning, but don’t worry, we took that into account when compiling these 5 - WFH - looks. Here, find the ‘do for you according to current confinement mood.

For when you want to upgrade your messy bun:

WFH Look 1: Low-Key Low Bun 2.0

You may be daydreaming of lounging on the beach, and just because that isn’t possible doesn’t mean you can’t emulate the feeling with beach waves. For this working from home hair lewk, you’ll need to prep just before you hit the sheets. All you need for these beach waves is a headband and a good night’s rest! Starting with slightly damp hair, place a stretchy headband around your head. Separate your hair into two sections, and starting at your ear, weave one section over and back under the headband, keep going until you reach the nape of the neck. Come morning, carefully remove the sections from the headband and (optional) spray with a bit of texturising spray before separating your waves with your fingers.

For when you want a style that looks complex but actually isn’t:

WFH Look 3: Uncomplicated Rope Braid

For when you want a style that looks complex but actually isn’t:

WFH Look 3: Uncomplicated Rope Braid

Plaiting hair can be intimidating for some of us… this rope braid will change your mind. Start by making sure your hair is brushed out well and tangle free. But, be sure to run your fingers through after if you want a more volumised look. Divide hair into two equal sections and start twisting both sections away from your face. Once both sections have been completely twisted away from your face, then begin twisting them towards your face (when you wrap the two sections together, the section closest to your face should be moving underneath and back). Once you’ve run out of hair, secure with an elastic.

For when you want to quarantine cute vibes:

WFH Look 4: Pretty ‘Lil Ribboned ‘Do

This working from home hair really comes in clutch when you’re working with limited resources in lock-down. For this, we love a simple ponytail ft. a hair ribbon. Ribbons aren’t hard to come by and surely you have one hanging around your home somewhere. Start by brushing hair smooth and run your fingers through to loosen up your strands to lend a more volumised look. Tie hair back into a ponytail, but be sure to grab a few face-framing pieces to leave out. Simply wrap your ribbon of choice around your hair elastic for a quarantine-chic look.

For when you want your hair out of your face:

WFH Look 5: Lots Of Volume Double Pony

This ponytail is anything but basic. It has the added bonus of keeping your locks out of your face, which means touching your face less, which is a - blessing - at the moment. Start by creating a half-up half-down ponytail, letting the locks under your ears hang down. Next, scoop up the half-down section and create another ponytail, securing with an elastic. You should now have two ponytails, stacked on top of each other. Tease the top section with a fine-tooth comb for texture. 

Try these working from home hair looks to boost your mood and get back into your routine - looking cute on your conference calls has never been easier!
