15 Cute Hairstyles You Can Wear to Work Any Day of the Week

It’s our personal mission to look as put-together as possible at all times, but when it comes to office life, it can be hard to reconcile our favorite happy hour hairstyles with the 9 to 5—the messy, undone braids we love after hours and on the weekend just won’t suffice, and cute hairstyles for work are hard to come by.

There’s also the fact that our mornings tend to be hectic (and whose aren’t?), so it’s beyond easy to fall into a rut of a sleek ponytail or a three-day-old blowout. For this coming week (and all the weeks after!), we dare you to give at least one new office-ready look a chance… and fortunately, we’ve got plenty of inspiration, so have at it.
