7 Easy Hairstyles for Every Busy Mom
One thing that sure happens to all moms is that their appearance goes for a toss. Who has time to dress well when you have a bawling baby at hand? Forget elaborate hairstyles. I can't remember when I last combed my hair through? Our hearts go out to you. We thought of bringing you some cool hairstyles that are so easy you can juggle two babies while doing these. Promise!
1. Easy Chignon
Chignons are great for moms who have zero time to dress their hair but want 100% compliments on their style. Just twirl your hair up and secure it in place with the help of bobby pins. The twirl may take you a while to master, but once you get it, you're going to want to wear it everywhere. It's an excellent alternative to the simple knot or the high knot and gives your hair more volume and texture.
2. The Messy Bun
Truly the perfect candidate for the easy mom hairstyles, the messy bun is the best solution for busy mommas – it only takes a minute to style your hair – even if it's dirty. And God knows, our hair is always dirty postpartum. Just put on a hairband to make it look like you have put a lot of effort behind this look.
3. The Alternative Low Bun
If you have an epic lousy hair day, then a low bun is perfect for you. Just tie your hair in a neat low ponytail, twist your hair around it, and put it in place with a hair tie or hairpins. If you want a giant bun to use a sponge under it and cover it with hair.
4. The Quick Curls Trick
We love curls and hope you do too. This 5 minute quick curls tutorial is for you if you're someone who only shies away from them because they are too cumbersome. Well, it doesn't need to be. As an alternative, you can even braid your wet hair before going to bed to have the best beach waves the next morning.
5. The Perfect Ponytail
The ponytail is probably the most versatile hairstyle there is. It's an especially tricky one to master for people who either have flat hair or don't have much hair on the crown. This video teaches how to make the perfect ponytail every single time. If you still feel your hair looks flat, slather some hair gel on top of your head for a sleeker put-together look.
6. The Easy Fishtail
If the ponytail is not cutting it for you, go for a fishtail instead. Fishtails look like only a hairstylist could ever successfully do one, but they aren't that hard to do in reality. And the best part, it works better on dirty hair.
7. The Pixie
Many moms decide to chop it all off after having a baby because they can't style it anymore. If you've decided to do that, definitely consider going for the fairy. It's funky and would up your cool mom quotient a gazillion times. It doesn't need anything in terms of styling, but you will need to visit the salon every 2-3 months to keep it looking proper.
What Stuff Do I Need to Make My Hair Look The Way It Looks In These Videos
Great question! And we see you are sold. We're giving you a quick list of the things you will need to create any or all of these hairdos. Don't worry; the list is super simple. It only has the essentials that you probably already have lying in your drawer or bag.
- Bobby pins – What they essentially do is replace the hair tie for a neater look. They are a lifesaver. No bun can ever be made without one. They stay put for hours, even if you're jumping around. Buy a whole bunch or bunches of them depending on the length and volume of your hair.
- U-pins – Many people think u-pins and bobby pins can be used interchangeably. They are wrong. These are what keep your chignon from turning into a messy bun over the day.
- Hairbrush - This is a no-brainer. Invest in a good one.
- Bun sponge – For those of you looking for a fuller bun, buy a bun sponge.
- Headbands – The easiest way to make any outfit edgier in minutes! Buy a couple in different colors and fabrics.
