Nobody appreciates free time more than working moms. Trying to balance between work, housework, kids, having quality time with your partner, as well as having time just for yourself, can be a challenging task. But most moms succeed in it and deserve a gold medal for their organization.
However, no matter what your profession is or how much housework you have on your schedule, you know that your last priority will probably be doing your own hair and makeup. And while you have probably mastered doing a quick makeup look in under 10 minutes, when it comes to hair, a ponytail or a bun are the usual options.
But this doesn’t have to be the case. We bring you a few easy and gorgeous hairstyles that you can create in no time and look even more stylish when you head out to work, to a brunch with your girlfriends, or to a romantic dinner with your husband.
Big bun and a colorful scarf
We all have those days when we simply cannot catch an hour or two to wash and style our hair. Then the only option we have is to tie the hair up. However, even if your hair is on its fourth or fifth day, it can still look modish. Simply use a bit of dry shampoo and put the hair up in a high, messy bun. Then pull out a few front locks and let them frame your face.
Now comes the most interesting part. Take a scarf in a vibrant color, fold it, and wrap it around your head, so that a loose knot comes at the top of your head. For this hairdo, you can treat yourself with a silk scarf, or you can use a cotton bandanna in your favorite color. In any case, with your hair done like this, you will look more refreshed and also, quite chic.
Glamorous hair barrette
No matter how convenient it is to put your hair up in a bun, sometimes we just want to let our hair down and feel feminine and girly. For instance, if you have a rare opportunity for a dinner date with your hubby, you can use a dazzling hair barrette as a lovely accessory.
This hairstyle is not difficult to make, but it requires long and thick hair. Thus, if you have a short cut, or if your natural hair is on the thinner side, don’t be afraid to use hair extensions. You can easily order high-quality, voluminous Russian virgin hair extensions that you can use whenever you want to get that diva hair look. These extensions are also quite easy to clip in and afterward remove, so you can insert and style them in a matter of minutes.
Once you have blended the hair extensions seamlessly with your natural hair, take the two front locks from both sides of your head and clip them together at the back with a romantic hair barrette. A subtle yet glamorous hairdo that your husband will love seeing on you.
Half-up sleek pony
If you have a big day at work and want to look extra presentable, but you still need to make breakfast and drive the kids to school prior to getting to the office, we have the perfect hairstyle for you. Start by brushing your hair and adding a few soft waves with a curling iron. Once your hair is wavy but also sleek, take the top part of your hair and twist it, while at the same time tying it up at the back of your head with a few bobby pins. Use as many bobby pins as you need to get all the locks secured and then slightly backcomb the hair at the crown of your head.
The next step is to pull out the front locks so that they can frame your face. Finally, apply a hairspray of your choice to make sure the hairdo stays in place throughout the day. The ultimate result will be a sophisticated hairstyle that looks as if you just stepped out of a hair salon.
An elegant low ponytail
What is perfect about this kind of ponytail is that it looks divine on all hair lengths and hair types. Also, even if your hair is not freshly washed, it can still look exquisite in this trendy low pony. Simply brush through your hair and tie it in a sleek low ponytail. Use a transparent hair tie, as you don’t want the hair tie to be visible. Then take one strand of the hair from the pony and wrap it around the elastic, securing it with a bobby pin. A few spritzes of hairspray, and you are all done. A super easy and modish hairdo for a beautiful working mom.
Finally, don’t hesitate to upgrade your style with one or all of these effortless hairstyles. As promised, they are quite easy to create, but at the same time, they are lovely and graceful.
