I’m calling these lazy day hair styles but really these are my every day hairstyles.
I’ve never been one to have perfectly coifed hair. If my hair ever looks particularly ‘done’ it’s because one of my best friends is a hair extrodinaire and she has done it.
In the morning, I tip my head upside down, give it a little shake, not even a brush, and I’m good to go.
There are some days though when my hair is so badly in need of a wash that no amount of jush-ing can fix it. I’m talking 2 days after 2nd day hair here… who am I kidding 7 day hair, Mom life and all.
These hairstyles will get you a few extra days.
Pony tail: Yep the pony. It’s so versatile. The sporty, high swingy pony to rock with your trainers and a tee or the smooth and sleek, low pony suitable for the office or even a night out.
Bun: The mum bun. How I have my hair 99% of the time. I don’t think there is ever an occasion when this isn’t suitable. It’s so practical, off your face and out of the grasp of little fingers.
Dry Shampoo: There are some days when you need your hair down. If you make up doesn’t go quite as you’d planned or you have a huge spot that needs hiding, we’ve all been there. This is where dry shampoo comes in. Turn you head upside down, give your hair a spritz and then rub it in as if you were shampooing your hair (we don’t want any white bits) flick your hair back over and voila. Messy, tousled waves without the salt spray. This hairstyle works particularly well if used the day after wearing a mum bun as it gives the hair added wave.
Hat: When all else fails, grab a hat. Any one who’s anybody has a fedora these days. You can pick one up for a tenner in Primark. No matter how bad the hair sitch with this on no one will be any the wiser and you’ll look like a super trendy fashionista.
