Between working, running errands, and getting the kids straight, busy moms hardly have time for ourselves, but going outside looking a mess is not an option. Yeah, there are those days you need to run out to the grocery store really quickly or head into work after pulling an all-nighter (because you were showing your honey why they should be “Loyal” or because you were putting last minute touches on that work presentation) and all you want to do is throw on jeans, a sweater and a hat–but an even better option for your hair is an updo.
Updos give your hair a break from heat styling, give you a new look (tresses pulled away from your face is so sleek) and you’ll shave some time off of your usual routine.
Some tips for your updo:
- Don’t wash your hair the day you’re rocking an updo because the style will hold better if it’s a little “dirty.”
- Don’t pull your hair too tight. You want an easy style but you also want to keep your hair healthy at the same time.
- Practice makes perfect. Once you get the hang of doing an updo–securing it properly with pins and making sure the style looks great from all angles–you’ll have it down in no time.
