Hair is as expressive as makeup and clothing, but sometimes we just want to be able to do something quick with it while we get on with other things in our lives. Between working, playing with the kids and cooking dinner, the hairstyles we choose have to be simple and cute.
If you are looking for some quick ways to put your hair together before an outing in the summer sun, you’ve come to the right place. These hairstyles look great on mommy and daughter and can be done within minutes.
The pony tail is a hairstyle staple, because you can dress it up or keep it casual. We love the idea of a messy, sporty pony, or even a pony tail wound into a fun top knot. Sweep your hair into a side pony to change things up a bit. Style your younger daughter’s hair in pigtails on either side of her head for a look that compliments yours.
This hairstyle looks like it takes a long time, but in reality, it is very simple and takes just a few minutes. Simply brush your hair to the back, separate it into thirds, and begin to braid down toward your neck, gathering hair in new sections as you travel. Secure the end with a holder. This is a beautiful, easy hairstyle at home for curly hair, and you can also dress up this hairstyle by braiding it to the side. Try Ion’s Shaping Plus spray first for a flexible way to hold your braid, then finish with Ion Mega Hold Freezing Spray to keep your hairstyle in place.
Make your own headband by braiding a section of your own hair and securing it with a bobby pin on the other side of your head. Whether dressed for a night on the town or for a movie in the backyard, this look is eye-catching.
There’s nothing wrong with just pulling your hair up and out of the way. Secure it with a messy bun, try a braided or unbraided top knot, or simply use pins to hold back a few strands and let the wisps fall gently (easy with short hair). Either way, the look works with sundresses or shorts.
Hairstyles don’t always have to be absolutely “perfect” – sometimes a little undone is exactly what is required for the situation. These hairstyles will help you achieve whatever style you need and make you feel fabulous. Be sure to follow our blog for more fun hairstyles for women of all ages!
