Serious shine and polish don’t require an hour with your blow-dryer. Just smooth wet hair with a shine serum—we like Living Proof’s Satin Hair Serum ($29)—and pull it all back into a tight, twisted bun. An added bonus? When you take out your bun at the end of the day, you’ll have happy hour-appropriate waves.
Committing to a whole fishtail braid is usually too time-consuming during your morning rush. Try this mini fishtail braid to upgrade your average pony.
This half-up, half-down style is as simple as it gets. Simply pull the front layers of your hair off your face into a mini ponytail, and let the rest of your hair hang loose! Err on the sleek side to keep the look sophisticated for the workplace.
A long braid can start to feel a little blah week after week. To mix it up, twist your braid into a low chignon. This elegant style will keep every last hair in place, even while you’re hard at work.
Ponytails don’t have to be boring. Slide a super-sleek metallic cuff over your ponytail for a glamorous yet polished pony—ideal for your afternoon meeting and after-hours drinks.
