Perfectly Polished Hairstyles for the Office (Virtual or Actual) and Beyond

With summer in full swing, you may have gotten accustomed to throwing your hair up in a ponytail or messy bun for a day of work, family time, errands or fun in the sun. Or perhaps you’ve taken your work-from-home hairstyle to a new level while safely social distancing in the confines of your home. Either way, it’s always fun to switch up your hairstyle and try something new, so we’re here with some perfectly polished hairstyle ideas.

Whether you’re heading back to the office, out to more places socially or simply need some fresh inspiration to change your day-to-day look, we have some fantastic styles you’re going to want to try out. Our stylists are standing by to help you achieve your hair goals, no matter how minimal or drastic of a hairstyle change you’re seeking.

Layered lob

The long bob, or lob, is by far one of our favorite hairstyles. Typically varying in length from below the chin to shoulder-ish level, it can be styled in numerous ways. With a few longer layers added for dimension and movement, even the slightest flick of a curling iron or flat iron can provide a beautiful, wavy result you’re sure to love. Secure your waves with our FS Finishing Spray and you’re covered for wherever the day takes you. If your locks need a little extra help holding a style and tend to fall flat, try working our Styling Mousse through damp hair before drying and styling.

Take the lob one step further and add some blunt-cut or angled bangs to complement your hairstyle refresh. Thicker, choppy bangs work great with the lob, and if you’re new to the fringe life, you might want to start off gradually with longer, face-framing layers that could be styled down and side-swept.

Polished pixie                              

If you’re looking for a bold hairstyle for the office and beyond, look no further than the polished pixie. Similar to the ‘power ponytail’ in the way that it commands attention, this pixie haircut is as bold as it is beautiful. Make the look truly your own by customizing it with clipped sides and back, or opt for more of an undercut style with a longer length on top. You could even ask your stylist for a faded look down to your hairline. The options are endless, but be sure to style with a sculpting product to define and control your look.

Sleek bob

Take your professionalism to a new level with the sleek bob hairstyle. With a length falling at or around chin level, this style means business, but can also be just the hairstyle change you need to refresh your everyday attitude at work or play. For the office, prep your hair with our FS Style Prep 10 to help detangle, moisturize, seal the cuticle and add shine and softness. If your hair is more on the textured side, try our FS Nourishing Serum to reduce hair drying time, add moisture and reduce frizzies and flyaway hair.

Opt for a crisp side part and smooth the sides of your hair down and behind your ears for a super-sleek look, or go with a trendy center part and let the sides fall freely. The personalization options are yours!

Sometimes everyone needs a little help looking fantastic, and we are here to help with fresh hairstyle ideas and the talent to bring them to life. Make sure to see your favorite FS stylist for your next hair update.
