We'll be lying if we said we don't get bored of our usual hairdo and would love to try something new with it, but never get round to doing it simply because everything seems so complicated and intimidating! Of course we know that no one has the time for some major coif management every morning (we would choose sleep any day), and that’s why we give you a few easy celeb-inspired hairstyles that are perfect for the office, college and everything else. These celeb styles are sophisticated enough to help you rock some glam while looking super chic. Oh, and they can be achieved in a few short minutes.
1. The Can’t-Go-Wrong Top Knot
Yes, a topknot may be your go-to for a sweaty workout, but a neater, sleeker version of it is totally apt for the office. Gather your hair as high as you can and pair it with a power blazer to help you channel oodles of professional style.

2. The Pretty Half-Up Half-Down Style
Sweeping the top half of your hair back and pinning it is such a simple way to channel some major office chic. It’s neat, will keep your hair off your face and looks cute enough to take you to post-work cocktails effortlessly.

3. The Simple and Sleek Ponytail
We all know that a ponytail will never fail us. Give your usual ponytail a refined edge by adding some smoothing serum to your locks before brushing them and gathering them up into a ponytail. A low side ponytail is a super-cute look to sport with a well-tailored dress to help you shine in the boardroom as well as on a red carpet.

4. The Fabulous Pouf
We totally heart Deepika Padukone’s favourite look - and the pouf is great for bringing some elegant glam to any look. It adds plenty of volume to any ordinary hairdo and is appropriate for work as well as for play. Pair it with a pretty, nude lipstick for a refined finish to your everyday style.

5. The Girly Side Braid
Braids are great since they work for every type of hair texture and are versatile enough to suit any outfit, no matter how strict or casual your office dress code is. A simple side braid is easy to do and won’t take you more than a few minutes, but is great for flaunting some girly glam all day long.

6. Slip On A Hairband
A thin hairband is great for taming stubborn bangs or if you want to leave your hair loose but keep it off your face. Just make sure it isn’t too big (or has a big bow or embellishment) since you don’t want to look too OTT for work. A simple hairband, with your hair neatly brushed out, will add a polished edge to your style and is an understated and professional look.
7. The Ballerina Bun
This slicked-back look is just what you need to try for some fuss-free style to help you perform your best at work. Simply tie your hair up in a ponytail then wrap it around your hair tie and secure the ends in place with bobby pins. You can tease your strands for some volume It’s easy and totally apt for a long day at the office.
