As a nurse, you pretty much want to look clean, tidy and presentable at most times. Your hairstyle does say a lot about your persona and it’s important to make the effort!

I know you don’t have enough time because of your early morning or late night shifts. But, you are terribly bored of that same old ponytail. Well, you’re in luck because these are super easy and quick to do!

Top Knot Bun

This hairstyle will rid you of bad hair days for good!  It’s super chic and easy. All you need to do is:

  • Pull your hair up into a high (on top of your head) ponytail.
  • Rather than tying your hair with an elastic band, start twisting your hair clockwise until it wraps around itself into a coil on top of your head.
  • Secure bun with an elastic band or bobby pins.

Flipped Ponytail

This is the perfect hairstyle for you if you’re always in a big rush and cannot waste time in between your shifts to do your hair. It’s pretty basic but looks sophisticated and elegant.

  • Loosely put your hair up into a ponytail using an elastic band.
  • Just above the elastic band, divide your hair into two parts.
  • Hold the end of your ponytail and insert it in between the two parts. Pull the end back until it looks like a “flipped” ponytail.
  • Tip: You can pull up the end part of your hair into a bun to turn the ponytail into a lovely up-do!

The “Bow-Bun”

So this is a really playful hairstyle. If you’re a sassy, cool nurse then this is the one for you! It isn’t too complicated to do and very stylish.

  • Use an elastic band to tie your hair into a ponytail.
  • Make a bun, leaving out the ends of your hair just on top of your head.
  • Divide the bun in the middle. It should look like a big bow on top of your head.
  • Pull the ends just right at the back of the bun.
  • Secure with bobby pins.

Hot-Crossed Bun

Do you have an early morning shift tomorrow? Try this one out. You just need to have some idea how to do a French braid…

  • Divide your hair into three parts, making sure that the middle part is the biggest part, and the two other parts on both sides would have enough hair for French braids.
  • Tie the middle part up into a bun, holding it in place with an elastic band. You can add some bobby pins later.
  • French braid each side carefully, trying not to make it too tight. Secure one side with an elastic band before doing the other side.
  • After finishing the braids, pull the ends of both sides (French braids) together on top of bun, crossing them and making sure to tie the ends of the braids into the bun.
  • Secure with bobby pins to keep the bun from falling.

There are many more hairstyles to choose from. But these are a really great starting point. A nurse can be fashionable too!
