4 Simple and Cute Mom Hairstyles

Moms are busy, aren’t we? It’s funny how such a little person can take up so much time! And I only have two kids so I can only imagine what it’d be like with more. I do still care about myself and the way I look. I want to be presentable and not always throw my hair in a pony. Not to say they’re bad, there is a time and a place for ponytails for sure. In fact, I’m rocking one right now. Not even a cute one either, just a plain old ponytail!

So I thought I would come up with a few hairstyles us busy mommas can do on-the-go. I did all of these in less than 5 minutes, promise, they’re so easy. I also made a little video to go with it at the bottom so you can see how they’re all done. I haven’t made a video for the straightener curls yet, but I’ll do that soon and then link to it.

Also, just to note, as you can tell in the video & the pictures this is second and third day hair here ladies. A little gritty but just right for a post about mom hair, amIright?

So I did each of these styles consecutively in less than 15 minutes. So that means you can reasonable do each one in less than 5 minutes. That is my kind of hairstyle, right ladies? Let’s do this!

First I wanted to share what products I normally use because I get asked a lot how I get my hair so shiny or what products I use. I honestly can’t really help with the shiny part except for that I use and love my Madison Reed hair color. I find that it’s overall better for my hair and my hair feels healthier and shinier when I use it.

The first one I shared on Instagram a while back and even though I did it rather quickly I was really happy with it. It’s simple and it works great with messy, kinda dirty hair. You start with teasing the front for some volume and then add the headband. Pin back the middle and cross-cross either side of the original twist. Here is what the back looks like.

Criss-Cross Ponytail

You will also see a trend here that most of these hairstyles are kind of messily put together. Which I love. Because seriously, who has time for perfection? Most certainly not me!

This ponytail starts with a basic ponytail right in the middle but with both front sections left out. Then, one section at a time, you criss-cross the pieces over the ponytail and secure them underneath. After it looks like somewhat of a braid on top of the ponytail which is really cute. Here is a picture of it done on long hair, before I cute mine!

All tucked under

I’m sure you’ve seen this one floating around the internet and it’s quite simple. Place the headband over your hair and separate out the two front pieces. Tuck the rest into the headband at the back. Then twist one of the sides over and bobby pin and then the next side over that. So simple and so cute, right?! This one is also great for hair that is not really styled and you want up but don’t want to wear it in a ponytail (again).

So you want your hair out of your face but you don’t really want to throw it all up. This style is perfect. You slip the headband over your hair like the all tucked in hairstyle except all you do is tuck the front pieces into the headband. You can secure it with bobby pins on either side so that it doesn’t slip up and that’s it! That’s about it!

    I am so in love with this hair color! Is this just the one red hair color in this picture or is this when you mixed it with the brown?

    How do you get the hairband to stay? It always slides off my head even when I get the ones with the rubbarized ring on the inside.

      You can secure it with bobby pins behind the ears and in the back to help. Some people just have slippery hair!
