Some days it’s a challenge not to leave the house with cereal in my hair. And I am without spawn, so I can only imagine how hard it is for you frazzled new mamas to leave the house with any kind of snazzy ‘do! So, in the interests of not being laughed out of town for suggesting complicated seven-product glamour waves, I have searched high and low for four top notch hairstyles that look the business, but take next to no effort.
#1 – The messy topknot
The ultimate low maintenance style, the It girl-approved messy topknot is ideal for new mums as it works best with slightly dirty hair (yesss), requires no product, and takes MAX one minute to perfect.
I could tell you the steps, but let’s hear it from mother of twins, Jena aka Someday Mama
#2 – The perky ponytail trick
The trick to getting a swishy, voluminous, extra-long pony like LC is by creating TWO ponytails. Depending on the thickness of your hair and how far apart you put the ponytails, you can also quickly wrap and pin a section of your hair around, so it looks like a single super-power pony. This look is best with thick, wavy or curly hair (two twiggy ponies are a bit of a sorry sight).
If you’re feeling tired and drawn, giving your hairdo a lift might be just the pick-me-up you need. This simple quiff style works a treat for short-haired gals. It might take an extra minute or two, but you can channel all your sleep-deprived frustration into teasing your tresses.
In good news for bad hair days everywhere, the bandana is back and looking cuter than ever. A life saver for hiding greasy roots, you can wear your bandana a bajillion ways, regardless of whether your style spirit animal is Hepburn or Winehouse.
