When choosing a hairstyle for work, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. If it's a new job – or even a job interview – you'll want to make a good impression and convey a sense of professionalism with your look, especially when it comes to your hair because that's one of the main things your colleagues and superiors will first notice about you.

If you have been in the same position for a while, however, you might be able to try something a little more 'out there.' This is something which can definitely be considered a perk of having already established both yourself, and your personality, within your work environment!

We've selected five chic workday hairstyles that are easy to achieve and even easier to wear, whatever your professional wardrobe entails. Scroll through the gallery above and get inspired!

Simple updo

When in doubt, remember that less is (almost) always more. A no-frills, sophisticated updo is the kind of hairstyle that won't let you down. Blow-dry first with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to get a smooth, sleek texture and then pin back into a bun. Fix with hairspray and you're good to go!

Tousled updo

This is essentially the same as a simple updo, only it features plenty of windswept texture – of the controlled variety, of course. Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TX IT Tousle Waves Spray through you locks then blast them in twisted sections with a blow-dryer. Finger-comb your hair then sweep it all back into a bun or chignon and gently muss with your fingers. Mist with hairspray and that's it!

French twist

This ultra-chic classic is a must-try. It's just timeless and it's the kind of hairstyle that will always make you appear grown-up and totally in control... even if you're not! Find out exactly how to get the look with our easy tutorial and don't scrimp on the hairspray! A generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray will give long-lasting hold without looking crunchy.

Sleek center part

If you want to wear your hair loose for work, you want it to look as though you've made a little effort. Fear not, it's a really easy illusion to create, even if you're running late. Without washing, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for an instantly sleek texture. Give yourself a center part, comb the hair through and fix with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray.

Low bun

Last, but by no means least, is a low bun. This is another great look that will keep your hair off your face and under control while you get on with your busy day. Gather the hair into a low pony then twist into a bun. For extra detail, braid the pony and then pin it into a bun. If flyaways are an issue, spray some Bold Control Hairspray onto the palm of your hand and then smooth it over the top and sides of your head.
