As a nurse or nursing student, you have plenty of things to worry about and your hair should not be one of them. As a new nurse I am always tired so I need quick styles that I can throw together so I can look great and get as much sleep as possible! I know you feel me! These 4 hairstyles are my go to and some more than others. I have seen nurses wear their hair down but I personally do not recommend this. It gets in the way plus think about all those germs and you do not want some one to grab your hair! Do not allow your hair to be a weapon against you that can cause you harm.
- A Simple Braid
Most people now how to make a braid. This is my #1 go to hairstyles because of simplicity and it looks nice. Plus when you take your hair out you have nice waves! I like to keep my braids loose and not tight against my head. You can always add a cute clip or hair tie at the end.
- The High Bun
Another classic that you can add your own personal touch to. This style is functional and versatile and guaranteed to keep your hair out of the way.
First, brush your hair to remove any tangles. Then pull your hair up and back to the where you would like the bun centered on your head. Then half wrap a hair tie around the hair.
I use one hand to twist my hair and use the same hair tie to wrap and hold my hair down.
Add some bobby pins and hair spray if needed to hold the bun down. I purchased some bow scrunchies from Primark and add these to the bun.
- The High Bun II
I like to use the same hairstyles but add some different variations through accessories. This is the same styles as above but with a sporty headband. I like to keep styles simple but by changing a few minor details you have can have a whole different look.
- Twisted Ponytail
This is another style that I love to wear. You can add variation by keeping it with a simple ponytail or adding a braid.
Start by parting a front section of you hair and pull the rest of you hair back and out of the way. Next, start at the top and take two pieces of hair and start making a twist. I then start grabbing a new small section of hair and start incorporating it into the twist and work my way down.
Keep working the twist until you run out of hair. I then grab all my hair and put it in a low ponytail. Use bobby pins to hold the twist in place.
