9 Quickie Hairstyles for Busy Moms

Sharing is caring!

As a mom, the morning can be one of the most stressful parts of our day.  We’re busy getting our kids fed, dressed, and out the door, leaving us moms hardly more than 5 minutes to put on some decent clothes, let alone do our hair.  As a result, our hair tends to end up in a ponytail without much thought given to it.  However, maybe our poor hair doesn’t have to suffer anymore.  Doing our hair doesn’t mean it has to take very long.  In fact, it could take less than 5 minutes to create a cute look on top of that beautiful head.  If you’re in the usual ponytail rut, try some of these fast, yet cute hairstyles:

1. The Famous Top Knot

The top knot is honestly one of the easiest hair dos I have ever done and even though it only takes about 1 minute to do, it still looks professional and sophisticated.  The best part is that even if it turns out a little messed up, that’s ok because the top knot is supposed to look messy.  It’s not meant to be sleek and perfect.

2. The Knotted Up Do

If you know how to tie a simple knot, I guarantee you can do this hairstyle.  All you do is start at the crown of your head with two strands of hair and tie it in a knot.  Then grab some more hair a little lower, add it to the hair from the previous knot, and tie another knot.  Keep repeating this as you work your way down your head.  When you reach the bottom, just pin your hair at the bottom.  Its a simple hair style that looks much more complicated than it is.

3. The Romantic Headband Roll

I absolutely love this hair style.  It is one of my favorites and every time I do it I get so many complements.  People always say it looks like princess hair.  To achieve this princess look, separate a few inches of hair in the front of your head around your temples.  Then put a stretchy headband behind this section, then over the top of the rest of your hair.  Start taking taking 1 inch sections of hair starting at the very front, twist it away from your face and tuck underneath the headband.  Continue doing this as you wrap all the way around to the bottom of your neck.  Secure the hair with bobby pins then finish off with some hair spray.

4. No Heat Headband Curls

One of the best parts about doing the romantic headband roll is that if you leave it in overnight then take the headband out when you wake up, you will have really pretty curls.  It’s almost too easy to believe.  You get 2 hairstyles for the effort of one.  Sometimes you might have a few pieces that aren’t curled as much as the others, but you can fix it with a use of your curling iron.
