As a new mum, you need your hair to stay robust whatever your child throws at you – expect food, paint and playdough, sometimes all at once! A gorgeously versatile yet practically bullet proof hairstyle, braids usually require a bit more DIY execution but are easily maintainable once finished. If you have short hair like me, hair extensions can really help bring an intricate braided look to life.
Maybe after all that pregnancy mayhem you’re in the mood to go short. Enter the Bob! Bobs may seem a little daunting at first, but with the right stylist and execution they can grab the attention of a room with virtually no effort on your part. There’s a reason Bobs are timeless.
A simple and easy hairstyle, try the boyfriend bob. "Think of it as a square outlined, shorter, blockier bob," enlightens Adam Reed, Hair stylist to beauty editors and A-list celebrities alike "It’s so flattering, wearable and totally changeable depending on your personal style."
A true classic, the messy bun is famous for being effortlessly chic – key word effortlessly. With virtually no styling or upkeep necessary, this bun looks best for those with longer locks. If you’re struggling to achieve the volume required for that perfect messy bun, try experimenting with clip in hair extensions, or even a clip in ponytail extension if you want a quick fix. Attaching them might take a few more minutes out of your busy schedule but with hair like that, can you really blame us?
Ah another gorgeous up-do. The ponytail is the queen of easy hairstyles, and with virtually no practise you’ll be rocking this mum hair in no time. To achieve the perfect sleek ponytail blow dry your hair in the direction of the pony tail to ensure maximum smoothness. Once you’ve assembled your pony, apply a light gel around the hairline to clear away flyaways. Subtle and shiny, this look is another one that’s best with longer hair. Enter ponytail hair extensions! If you’re unsure of how to attach our ponytail extensions check out a quick and easy guide here.
A practical braided look with the wow factor. Once you’ve mastered the execution of a fishtail, you’ll be sure to impress the other mums at home time. Although a fishtail braid may look daunting at first, they’re a surprisingly easy hairstyle to construct with a little practice. Not only are they stunning, when finished correctly they can hold perfectly all day, whatever your child throws at you! Check out our Easy Fishtail Braid Tutorial to ensure you get the perfect braid every time.
If short hair is easy to maintain, pixie hair is the master of easy hairstyles. If you’re brave enough to chop it all off, try a pixie haircut! Undeniably short, spiky, and super cute, the pixie is one for the bold. But, as a new mum you’re as bold as they come, right? The beauty of the pixie hair cut is they work for just about any type of hair or face shape. They’re also a go to for mums with messy ones as the absence of long tresses mean your locks will stay CLEAN. This simple and easy hairstyle is incredibly fashionable for 2021 (who says mums can’t stay on trend), makes a statement and is perfect for mothers who are short on time. Isn’t that all of you?
Who say’s mum hair has to be short? Forget the bobs and pixies, you don’t have to cut off your locks just because you have kids. Keep your precious tresses and revitalize your femininity with a long bob, or lob as it’s ingeniously named. Lobs were in in 2019, 2020… even 2021! The fact is this simple and easy hairstyle rarely goes out of fashion, and it’s a go to for new mums who want to break away from the mum hair stereotype. Embrace this easy hairstyle from day to night, if you’d like to add some extra curls to your lob, make sure to stock up on a curl defining crème to keep your lob looking perfectly wavy whatever the time.
