If you are anything like us, we’re sure you want to sport prim and proper hair 24*7; like you’ve have just stepped out of the salon. But with the arrival of your little bundle of joy, it wouldn’t be a surprise, if getting 5 minutes of time in front of the mirror seems like a luxury you can only dream of.
So then how do you style your hair enough to make them look presentable at least? Read on, as we list some easy hair styling ideas to help you look great in no time!
- Braid them
- Night time is the right time
- Tie a top knot
- Apply dry shampoo the previous night
- Add an accessory
Braiding your hair is a super quick way of styling your hair when you are in a rush and your baby needs you. Braids help break the monotony of leaving hair open and give it a stylish edge. Also, if you have not had time to wash your hair and they are feeling greasy, a simple braided hairstyle will conceal things like a pro!
Night time is the right time
Finding time to wash, condition and dry your hair in the morning can seem like a humongous task. Hence following this routine the previous evening while your baby sleeps can be a great hack. After shampooing and conditioning your hair, simply let it air dry as you sleep as this will reduce dehydration due to heat exposure. Next morning, simply use a bit of styling cream on rough, frizzy sections and brush through with a flat brush. Easy-peasy!
Tie a top knot
We know that top knots look extremely complicated, but once you try them, they take only about 2 minutes to look perfect. Top knots look best on second and third day hair, thanks to the natural texture and hold. Stylish and easy, no one would be able to tell that you haven’t really spent 30 minutes looking chic.
Apply dry shampoo the previous night
Now that you’re a mother and are constantly pressed for time, dry shampoos is your new BFF. From holding onto curls from the day before avoiding oily, flat roots, there’s nothing that a dry shampoo won’t do. Simply spritz a bit of dry shampoo to soak up excess grease, create textures and volumes. This little step at night will reduce your getting ready time in almost half.
Add an accessory
For the days when you absolutely have no time for hair styling, hair accessories will help transform bed head into a work ready instantly. From scrunchies and printed bandanas to oversized pins and bobby pins, there’s no dearth of options. Since your hair accessories are in focus here, the rest of your look can be laid back and simple.
