Do you ever feel like you’re in a rush to get out of your house and between getting your kids dressed, presentable, diapers, snacks, and everything other little thing that you probably forgot, getting yourself ready is the last thing you do? As a mom of two, I am always in a hurry trying to get ready whether it be going to the grocery store or just to look like you cared about yourself a little for a mom date that you might have planned. I have three hairstyles in my arsenal that I am always using. If you see me on a semi daily basis you know that if my hair isn’t in a bun it’s in one of these quick and easy hairstyles.
The first one I did was a quick curl and headband braid.
A trick I’ve learned when being in a hurry is if you put your hair in a ponytail and curl it then you can do it faster than if it’s broken off into sections. You won’t get as tight of curls but if you’re in a hurry it’s doesn’t really matter anyways. It took me 3:49 seconds to curl my hair and I finished it off with a headband braid that took me exactly 5 minutes!
The Second one I love to do is a half up bun!
Since my hair was already a little curled this one was even easier. This took a whole 2 minutes. If you are are in a hurry you can follow the first step from above to curl your hair fast and then separate the hair at the crown of your head. Twist and wrap around in a bun. Use an elastic or hair tie depending on the thickness of your hair. My hair is extremely thick and it’s long so I have to use a hair tie. This is a go-to for me! Especially if I still have next day curled hair this is super easy to put up and run out the door if I need to.
The last style is a fishtail braid
I love the way this one looks instead of doing your classic side braid. Pull hair to one side and split it in half. Grab a small piece of the back left portion. Pull over the top and add to the right half. Now grab a piece from the back right portion. Pull over the top and add it to the left half. Continue doing this until you get to the bottom of your hair and you’re done! Super quick and easy. This took me just under 4 minutes to do.
I hope you found these quick hairstyles helpful!
