Professional Natural Hair

I don't know if this topic has been discussed already, but I think it's a topic that needs it's own thread. Here's some photos of what I would consider professional 'dos. What do y'all think...professional or unprofessional? Anyone have other pictures to share?

I cant seem to think outside the bun when it comes to professional styles for my hair. You gave me some motivation!

Another vote for the last one.. love the style and it is most def professional.

Love it! Those styles are sooo cute.

I'm interested in this topic too. I'm going to be starting an office job soon; last time I was in an office setting I had a TWA. Although my office is pretty lax, it would be good to see more professional styles.
Up-dos are automatically classier and more professional. Any down stlyes that you guys think are more professional?

Nice styles! I tend to think of up-do's in regard to hair and professional. Loose hair can be professional too but it just depends on the presentation (ie outfit).

Youtube has some nice videos on vintage hairstyles for natural hair. These are super cute and definitely "office appropiate"!
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!



I love them, especially the last one. I can't bun to save my life. I work in an extremely corporate environment, and normally have my hair in twists, or a twist-out or braid-out pulled back slightly at the front- like in my avatar. If anyone thinks this is unprofessional they haven't said anything (although perhaps because I give off a demeanor that screams "I defy you to say anything about my hair!")
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
