Five Elegant Hairstyles For Your Next Zoom Meeting

Working from home is a small silver lining during these chaotic times. There’s something so relaxing about doing your work in your PJs or from the comfort of your own living room. But, most of us who are working from home aren’t completely off the hook.

There are still meetings to attend, they just happen to be virtual. Some companies are holding weekly Zoom meetings as a way to maintain company morale. There are also meetings with clients or potential clients. The bottom line is that you must look prepared, professional, and sharp when you are engaging with coworkers, clients, or your boss.

So, you can’t have bedhead! While we get used to working from home, it can be a buzzkill to know that you’ve got to straighten up before a Zoom call. But, looking elegantly professional doesn’t have to require much effort! Here are some sharp looks that take under 10-minutes to achieve, so that you can give off that ‘on-the-money’ vibe while partaking in a virtual meeting.

Bosslady Bun

Bosslady Bun

This is a look that evokes power, confidence and a take-charge attitude. If you want someone to take you seriously while in a virtual meeting, you’ll want to go with this look. And, it’s not that hard to achieve with a bit of product and precision. Essentially, you’ll want to throw your hair up into a bun. You can use some bobby pins to keep it in place if you are someone who has hair that falls easily. Stick a bunch of them in there! Nobody on your Zoom call will notice. The most important element of this look is the sleek crown. Even if your hair is wild, frizzy, or curly, you can still use a dime-sized amount of Total Control Styling Gel to slick your hair back and give it that fresh look.

Textured and Typing Ponytail

Textured and Typing Ponytail

Here’s an example of a hairdo that was made for your computer screen. It’s styled, intentional, and allows for your hair to peek out onto the camera so that you don’t appear to be just a floating face. All it really requires is throwing your hair up into a high ponytail. You can spritz a heavy hairspray on the crown to smooth frizz and keep it chic. If your hair has body and personality on it’s own, you won’t need to tease it. This look will take you less than 2 minutes to achieve, making it ideal. However, if it falls flat, teasing your hair and spraying that as well will add some life to your Zoom meeting look! You can even curl the end of your ponytail with a thin curler if you aren’t someone who enjoys the teased style. A ponytail into curls is also very elegant and looks fantastic on the Zoom screen.

Workplace Waves

Workplace Waves

Any hairstyle with a bit of body usually works well for a virtual meeting because it allows for strands of hair to frame your face. That doesn’t mean that you should just let your hair down because it might fall flat or be a bit too frizzy. If you’ve got straight hair, the best way to get this look is to blowdry your hair with a diffuser. This creates randomized effortless twists. You can then spritz your locks with some shine mist to give it a glow! If you’ve been blessed with nice natural waves, you can rub some smoothing serum into your palm and lightly massage it through your hair beginning not at the root, but towards the middle-bottom.

Professional Pony

Professional Pony

Here’s a style that appears effortless and classic. The sideswept bangs keep it on the more cute and casual side, if you’ve got a more casual office. This is a sweet way to wear your hair if you happen to have an office crush. Ok, ok… Back to business. To achieve this, you really just need to put your hair into a ponytail. Make sure to leave out either your bangs or your tendrils in order to achieve the ‘side swept’ look. If your hair needs to be straightened, you can quickly go over a few pieces with a flat iron, but it doesn’t have to be perfect. You can also use a light hairspray to keep everything in place.

Hardworking Half-Do

Hardworking Half-Do

This is definitely one of the easiest styles on the list because you can pretty much make any texture, style, color, and type of hair look great and professional by pulling the top-half of it back. You literally just need a clip or a hairband. You might think that a half-do looks childish on you, but that might be because you are pulling all of your hair into a half-high-pony rather than letting it sit downwards and expose your part. Additionally, you can pull pieces from the bottom half to your front as a way to frame your face more while you are on the Zoom call! This is effortless, easy, and can be done to anyone whose hair is long enough!
