Looking for easy hairstyles for work that are quick to create and look professional enough for your most important work meetings? We've got you covered! Whether you're trying to dress up a basic ponytail or bun, or want a style that's a little more chic and sexy, this collection of quick and simple DIY updos for medium and long hair are perfect for everyday!

If you love the look of a beautifully-patterned scarf coupled with a simple white tee, faded jeans, and stylish booties, but tend to shy away from such fashion accessories and statements for fear of looking foolish, you’re not alone. Heaps of women – myself included! – don’t have the foggiest idea how to tie a scarf or how to wear ankle boots, and rather than doing a little researching and testing a couple of new looks out, they stick with old and predictable wardrobe selections.

The good news is that it’s actually not that hard to teach yourself how to tie a scarf. In fact, there are more than 50 different looks you can choose from, and while some are on the complicated side, others are downright simple and have a way of transforming an otherwise boring outfit and making it into something…fabulous!

I recently found a GREAT book on Amazon called 50 Ways to Wear a Scarf, which I keep in my closet to help me keep my look fresh when I’m getting dressed in the morning. And for those who are more visual and need to see something in action, I also found some AMAZING tutorials (see below!) to teach you how to tie a scarf in next to no time.

Oh! And check out these amazing scarves I’ve been eyeing at Nordstrom!
