Quick Hair Styles for a Busy Mommy

I have to confess... after highschool, I got really lazy with my hair.  It's naturally straight (even when it air dries) and when I do decide to spend time on it, I end up spending a lot of time on it.  I guess because I don't have much practice.

However, after I became a mom and I no longer had the OPTION of spending time on my hair, I began to WANT to do my hair in something other than a ponytail.  So... here are a few quick and easy (if I can do them... they're easy!) hair styles for mommies with medium to long hair.

I love this girl's youtube videos! The hairstyles she demonstrates in the video below are very quick and easy

Step 1 – Clip away two sections of hair either side of your face.
Step 2 – Put the rest of your hair in a ponytail and secure with an elastic.
Step 3 – Separate the side section into three equal parts.
Step 4-5 – Starting with the lowest section, twist the hair up and wrap it around your ponytail. Secure the end with a bobby pin.
Step 6 – Repeat on the other side and continue twisting and pinning each section around your ponytail.
Step 7-8 – A tip for keeping the ends in place is to tease the end of each section and put the bobby pin on the end of the section of hair. Then wrap in around and pin it in place. Putting the pin on the end of you hair first makes it so much easier to do.

Also, make use of cute hair accessories - bun wraps, hair clips, headbands. 
  My favorite is the braided headband!
