10 Tips to Move From Single Style to Mom Style

Rethink Your Hairstyle

How long does it take you to do your hair each morning? Is an entire armory of tools required? Blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, gel, paste, hair spray, mousse, round brush, comb, various accessories? If so, it might be time to look into a less complicated hairstyle.

Motherhood is all about time management. So your mommy style should be efficient. Of course, your first priority with a hairstyle is that it flatters you. But it should also be simple. Currently in fashion, short hair is super-easy to take care of. A pixie cut, for example, needs almost no maintenance. You can dry it with a towel, rub in a little gel, and you're good to go. If you have long hair, you can get out of the tired old ponytail rut with pretty barrettes or headbands. And if you find yourself having one of those days without a minute to yourself for basic grooming, we humbly suggest investing in a cute little hat.
