    5 Easy Hair Extensions Styles for the Working Chic

    C:\Users\Rotimifx\Desktop\hair extensions for working women.jpg

    When I got my first set of hair extensions I was thrilled, but I didn’t entirely know what to do with them.  I swiftly realized that with quality hair extensions, the styling process is no different than with any other hair, except that now I have the benefit of styling the hair that I always dreamed of.

    Working women have the reality of always being expected to look fantastic, yet have virtually no spare time on their plate.  With only a brief window to prep in the morning, it is essential to have a few go-to styles that look chic and professional, but are also a breeze to master when time is tight.  Let’s take a look at a few favorite quick-set styles for working women on-the-move.

    Style 1: Straighten it Out

    Nothing beats the satisfaction of leaving your hair the way it is and still having it look drop-dead gorgeous.  One of the simplest ways to achieve a fuss-free hairstyle is to use a quality hair straightener to de-frizz and iron out your natural wavy locks, and your leave-in extensions.  A nice straightening job should last for a couple of days without washing, and a manageable comb through in the morning will leave you ready to go!

    To achieve long full straight hair look, you will need a quad one piece clip-in hair extension.  This gives you desired length and volume in minutes.  See here.

    Style 2: The Coiled Bun look

    To achieve this classic, yet sophisticated look, once your extensions are secure, divide your hair into two even sections as if you were going to put your hair in pigtails.  Grasp the section of hair on your left side and twist.  Coil this section of hair up and into a bun and secure with a hair tie, and pin as needed.  Next, twist the remaining hair and then wrap this new segment around the bun that you have already created.  Secure with pins.

    To achieve this, you can use a single ponytail hair extension piece.

    Style 3: The Side Braid

    Simple and a genuine time-saver.  All you need to achieve this look is long luscious locks, which you should now have thanks to your new hair extensions, and a few seconds.  Brush and smooth your hair until it is all laying across one shoulder, and then braid.  To enhance this look and to add a little flair, try twisting a section or two of your hair before beginning to braid.

    Style 4: The Simple Ponytail with a Twist

    This style is precisely what it sounds like – an up-do that has stood the test of time.  To achieve this timeless look that showcases the sporty side of your brand-new, extension-enhanced hair, simply smooth and secure into a high ponytail.  Once hair is secure, grasp a small section of hair and wrap it around the ponytail holder.  Once it surrounds the hairband fully, tuck the end underneath to secure and conceal it.  Leave loose curls, or pull up every last strand for a sporty, career-driven image.  You can use a single piece hair extension to achieve this look.

    Style 5: The Braided Ponytail

    Part braid, part ponytail.  To don this look, begin by dividing your hair, with extensions in place, into three even sections. Begin braiding, but halt after simply three or four crossovers, and then fasten the remainder with a hair tie.  Pull tight. This new twist on the classic braid, which lets the rest of your gorgeous locks flow free, will leave others envious of your unique yet elegant style.  You can use a braided clip-in ponytail hair extension to achieve this look.

    Stiletto Booties for Spring

    high heeled booties

    Today’s post is dedicated to all you boot lovers out there.  As spring has officially arrived today (I couldn’t be happier!), what better transitional footwear than heeled booties to vamp up your work looks.  Stiletto booties are more versatile than you think ~ dressy as pumps, only edgier!  They can be easily paired up with a cropped trousers, skirts or wide-leg pants.  These days, booties are considered year-round shoes and I personally enjoy them throughout the year even in summer.

    I have gathered up some stiletto booties in work-chic styles with closed-toes to keep you looking polished at your workplace.  The LBB (little black booties) are like LBDs, you must own at least one pair!

    Business-Casual Spring Outfit

    Can you believe it’s already the middle of March?  How thrilled I am to welcome all the spring goodness including planning a spring work wardrobe.  I have yet to finish my last minute closet re-organization to have my spring wear readily accessible.  Have you packed away your winter pieces yet?

    I was greeted with a warm sunny day today in the 70′s.  Spring is definitely in the air!  Warm weather like today calls for easy breezy pants that you can enjoy at work and after.  With an elastic waistband and flattering tapered leg, these drapey pants (available in 5 colors) will be your spring & summer go-tos.  To easily transition from the cube to the cocktail bar, simply switch out your accessories.

    Find a structured top (or at least semi-fitted) to balance out the relaxed pants.  Equipment’s Ava silk shirt (also here) is perfectly seasonal in a colorful floral print.  Also vibrant pumps and dazzling drop earring for the season.  Throw on your favorite blazer or cardigan when chilly out.
