The Quick & Easy Nurse Hairdo

Let me begin by saying that if you’re anything like me, you’re going to want to read this page. My hair needs attention and work. Honestly it’s not god-awful, but it sure needs my TLC! The frizz, the limpness… it’s just not very amicable.

I’ve been on this never ending chase to look for hairstyles that work on any given day, regardless of the weather, my mood or how much time I have on my hands. So I’ve read blogs-a-plenty and tried every curler, frizz serum and hairspray. I even went as far as chopping a bob and then grew it out for 3 years to my current length!

Recently I came across a blog with fantastic hairdos. Considering that time is the one thing nurses don’t have, this top knot hairstyle popped out at me and I thought “This would be incredible for nurses!” It literally takes 3 minutes to arrange and it lasts all day. Yes, all day! Or maybe in your case, all shift. No tweaking, no loose hair, no unravelling braids, just none of that. It’s sleek, neat and pretty timeless!

In her blog post, Hair Romance says: “If you have fine or short hair you will love this.” This hairdo is tried and true.

hairdoWhat you will need:

  • Brush
  • Comb
  • Elastic
  • Doughnut shaped padding
  • Hairspray (optional)

What you do:

First, BRUSH you hair up and into a high ponytail. The ponytail should be close to the crown of your head. You may want to flip your head upside down for quicker assembly. Make sure the elastic is tight.

Next, SLIP the doughnut shaped padding around your ponytail.

Then, SPLIT your ponytail in the center and cover the padding with your hair. (If you don’t have enough hair, you may want to tease your ponytail with the comb in a downward motion prior to splitting.)

Finally, SECURE the ends of your hair with bobby pins. Optionally, do a quick spritz of hairspray over your hair for some extra hold.

…And tada! Your hairdo is complete in a few simple steps.

*Tip: If you’ve got frizz, you can easily tame it. Spray your comb with hairspray. Then using the comb, pat the frizz down starting at hairline and move toward the back of your head until you get your desired results.
