5 Hairstyles for One Hot Mama
Quick and chic looks for busy moms on the go.
We know that when you’re a mom, you don’t have time for much… even going to the bathroom by yourself is a luxury. Between diaper changes and late nights with infants to soccer games and homework as they get older, we often find ourselves at the bottom of the list of priorities. However, just because we don’t have loads of time, doesn’t mean we can’t make the most of what we have. With Mother’s Day around the corner, we want to share five of our favorite looks for moms on the go.
1. MESSY BUN
Messy bun. Not a hot mess bun, but a hot, messy bun. See the difference? Once you’re a mom, a bun can become part of the uniform, but with a little extra TLC, this staple can make a huge statement. We love this mom’s tutorial for 4 different messy buns! Try them all and pick a favorite before taking a trip to the coffee shop and inducing some serious bun envy
2. GO BIG OR GO HOME
Go big or go home. Did you know that dry shampoo isn’t only good for those days when you can’t squeeze in a shower? By flipping your head upside down and aiming your dry shampoo at your roots first, you will add volume and texture to your hair. Plus, since it is Mother’s Day, why not treat yourself or a mom you know to our favorite dry shampoo, Cheat Day!
3. HOORAY FOR HEADBANDS
Hooray for headbands! Listen, you know who has time to perfectly tuck and place every single piece of hair? Nobody! But that’s why headbands were invented. From Kate Middleton to Mindy Kaling to you, busy moms everywhere are partaking in the power of a headband. We love these fun bedazzled ones on Amazon or you can support amazing designers like Autumn Adeigbo by splurging on one of her fabulous accessories.
4. WEAR YOUR CROWN
Wear your crown. Braids and twists can look intimidating, but that’s the beauty! When you step out of the house with this twisted crown, people will be in awe. It doesn’t require much more effort than a messy bun, but it’s picture-perfect for any occasion. The biggest plus is there’s no need for perfection with this gloriously messy do, but if you do have some flyaways to tame, pair this with our Super Star Spritz to keep your crown in place all day.
5. TAKE IT TO THE 90s
Take it to the 90s. Listen, we’re not here to remind you the 90s are now considered retro (sorry 80’s babies) but we are here to tell you that your favorite childhood trends are back in full effect. Remember claw clips and butterfly clips? That’s right. GO WILD! If you’re feeling tired and grandma, grab your favorite clip the next time you’re at the store and try out one of these easy and chic styles. These looks take literal seconds and for an added bonus, keep one of these pretty ladies in your purse or diaper bag for the next time little fingers decide your hair is their favorite toy!
You don’t need to go to hair school or spend hours in the bathroom to give yourself an extra boost in the morning. Some days it may take less time than making your morning cup of coffee to make yourself feel great in the morning. With these easy and quick looks, you can leave the house—or stay in—feeling your very best. You can’t pour from an empty cup, give yourself permission to do what you need to feel your best self, and everyone in your life will benefit. But remember, you are raising an entire human. Whether your hair is done or not, you are iconic, beauty!
