It’s nearly Easter and at last here in the UK Spring is starting to make an appearance – and my Winter trick of covering up my hair with a hat is no longer possible.
I’ve had a look at recent celebrity trends and spoken with a few blogger friends and come up with a few hairstyles that are fresh for the Spring and easy for the busy mum:
Plaits are always in fashion – from a full french plait to basic pigtail plaits, they are so quick and easy and so versatile – my go-to hairstyle is to divide my hair into two, run two french plaits and either pin them on top of my head or at the back.
My hair is naturally thick and quite straight and so can look really messy down unless I do something with it – I either plait it wet at night time and wake up to bouncy waves or run a curling tong through, backcomb it a bit and off I go.
Wigs are amazing these days, they look so natural and you can have any style or hair colour you like. With options like synthetic or natural hairline lace front wigs there is something on the market for everyone. Long gone are the days of slippery wigs, technology has come on so much these days that there really is something for everyone.
4. Hair toppers
A confession – my hair is thinning at the front and I’m starting to get really paranoid about it. After having my son six years ago I lost so much hair at the front it’s not really growing; so I’ve found myself looking online for solutions if it gets much worse. Did you know hair toppers for women are an actual thing? You can buy toppers, which are like a small partial wig which can be blended with your own hair, you integrate your own hair with the hair piece and it looks totally natural.
5. Scrape it back
Is there anything quicker than a simple scraped-back pony, or even a messy bun? These never go out of fashion – and the bigger the bun, the better! Mum trick – you know those annoying odd socks that you have sitting on the side for months? Chop out the toe, and roll into a doughnut shape – voila, ready made doughnut for buns! I should mention (obviously) only use a clean sock(!) and I’ve found they grip hair really nicely and don’t look as fluffy as shop bought bun rings.
6. Erm…. keep wearing hats
Okay, okay – so I know I said I wouldn’t be able to wear my trusty woolly bobbly hat once the weather warms up but there are, of course, options for hats for every season. I’ve found some really cool thin beanie hats that would be thin enough and suitable for spring and come the Summer I fancy myself a lovely wide-brimmed number, although not sure how school run suitable it would be…
