    I do most of the time.  I live in FL, and it’s humid the majority of the year, so I wear my hair curly.  I throw in some curling mousse when I get out of the shower and just let it air dry.  It’s usually mostly dry by the time I get to work, but not completely.  I also don’t deal with clients or anything and my job is really low-key, so it’s not a big deal.

    That’s so funny you just asked, because today I did! I only do maybe 5 times a year when I’m running late. Today is warm outside, so to save drying time, I just pulled it back and off I went to work!

    i did this morning! but i work in IT and i can wear jeans to work everyday so professionalism isnt really a worry for me- no one see’s me in the morning anyway, and my hair drys pretty quickly. but i usually shower in the mornings and its still wet when i get to work but i usually let my hair air dry anyway – i dont use a blow dryer very much.

    I wear my hair in a bun 95% of the time, and do it straight out of the shower.  I straighten my bangs so they’re dry, but my bun is still wet when I go to work.

    I picked never, but not because I think it’s unprofessional. I don’t go to work with wet hair because I hate the feeling of wet hair, and my hair looks better blow dried than air dried.

    I go to work with my hair wet almost everyday. Probably isn’t the most professional, and I work in finance, but I have the wackiest hair, and it’s just easiest for me to pull it back in a messy bun quick in the morning. It doesn’t bother me!

    Yes, nobody can tell if my hair is wet because I have natural hair. I also don’t use heat on my hair. So if I wash it in the morning, I’ll go to work with it wet. It looks the same wet and dry.

    I will wear my hair curly this time of year also.  I usually put mousse in, blow dry a little to help it along, and add more mousse/hairspray to finish.  It finishes drying at work, but no one knows it’s still damp.

    I’m a teacher and usually have meetings with parents in the mornings, so I can’t be too lazy with my hair, unfortunately… I much prefer that! 🙂

    Almost every day! I just dont have time to do my hair. It takes me at least 20+ mins to blow dry my hair. Then once it is dry I usually have to straighten it or else it looks ridiculous. I have a lot of hair (its thick) so it takes me probably 45 mins total to dry and straighten. I leave for work at 7 and I like to sleep as much as possible so why would I waste precious sleep time to look good for sitting in a cubicle?

    I do! Mostly because 99% of the time it is just me and my boss so I really don’t care what I look like. We don’t have a dress code though either… my boss frequently wears workout clothes to the office because he’s always on his way out for a run haha. So me going to work in jeans/flip flops/no makeup/wet hair is not at all unusual. I probably wouldn’t leave my hair wet for a client meeting or court unless I was super strapped for time, and then I think as long as it is in a neat bun its probably ok (not the cutest style ever for me but at least I do think it looks professional).

    All the time.  I don’t think it is necessarily unprofessional- it dries, it isn’t like you are soaking wet all day.  I have really long hair so, it often isn’t dry when I leave the house.  I still brush it into a braid or a bun to look decent.

    I think it depends on what type of hair you have.. when I had short boy cut I woudl just wash my hair and put some mousee in it and walk out the door.. but now that its longer I cant go out with wet hair.. just feels odd to me

    i have super curly and thick hair, and lots of it, that looks best air-dried,  so i almost always let it air dry, and it takes hours to fully dry. so yeah, i went to work with wet/damp hair when i worked in an office almost all the time. my office wasn’t very formal anyways, i could get away with wearing jeans if i didn’t have any meetings with people from outside our organization, so it didn’t make much difference. i went for about a year drying my hair with a diffuser–it still wouldn’t completely dry it though, and it took too long to be worth it anyway.
