The low ponytail is a current work look that makes a big impression, yet is easy to style.

In the morning, you have an important meeting with your boss; at midday, a lunch with colleagues – and in the evening you have a date with friends for after-work drinks. In between: A few phone calls and your everyday work, which of course has got to get done. Your perfect companion (in addition to a confident, stylish outfit)? An on-trend hairstyle that lasts from daytime through evening, can easily be fixed up – and looks good. Below, we present six current, cool business hairstyles that meet all requirements.

1) Trend work hairstyle: The low ponytail with a scarf

The low ponytail with a scarf is a current business look that’s as perfect for the office as it is for after-work dates. The great thing about it: As quick as it is to do in the morning, it’s just as quick to tidy up throughout the day. This style looks best with a center parting. Tip: First, secure your low pony with a hair tie, then wrap your scarf around this. This will give better hold. Smooth down flyaways with styling wax to finish.

2) Trend work hairstyle: The half bun

Everyone loves a bun! The latest trendy update to the top knot is the half bun. This super practical, super simple and super stylish updo looks great in the office, too. The style works on long, medium and shorter hair. The upper hair is gathered together above ear level and styled into a mini bun. Tip: Got plans after work? Perfect – transform your half bun into a half ponytail! Make it even more chic: Ensure your hair tie is sitting tight on your head by gently pulling at the ends of your hair with your fingers. Carefully loosen up the hairline. Use hair spray for a glossy finish.

3) Trend work hairstyle: The headband
