Have you got the hair factor? Top mummy hairstyles

I can honestly say that my hair is the bane of my life. It’s thick and heavy, it gets knotty and frizzy and extreme dry.

When I was younger it was naturally quite wavy and would curl really nicely with the right products; but after years of straightening, blow drying and not using protective spray – it’s rather a mess.

The dryness can be a godsend as it means I only need to wash it once a week but it also means that it feels pretty horrid at the ends. Now that I have Jasper I rarely have time to style it and with his wriggly grabby little fingers I always end up just putting it up in a bun.

This is fine but ends up meaning that I could go for days without brushing it and end up with extreme knots and hair loss – yuck!

So, with October being my month of looking after myself I’ve decided to put a little extra focus in my hair. I’ve beens searching for the best mummy hairstyles that are, of course, quick, easy to do and most importantly – look fab!

The messy bun – This seems to be my go-to style. It’s quick and it’s easy. For me, I simply chuck it up in a bun. The knots and dryness gives it that messy look with ease – however if you’re looking to do it the right way, here’s a tutorial:

It takes a little practise and does take longer to do then a normal french braid but it looks so pretty – especially the messy version!8acc702ae7c92b276d9fc368f02ccb82Half up half down – Now this one I’ve not been too sure about. I’ve seen it a lot on the likes of the kardashians and Towie crew but I always thought it looked a tad silly, especially when the half up bit is a messy bun. However; it’s grown on me. I did it the other day and it actually looked pretty awesome, plus it’s super easy!

So there you have it, some super easy to create hairstyles that look incredibly fabulous! Who says being a mum means neglecting your locks! Try one of these styles, look like a stunner and keep that hair off your face and out of your bambinos hands!

What styles do you go for day to day?
