Quick, Easy Mom Hairstyles
1. This Fancy, Comfortable and Easy Ponytail Hairstyle Takes Just a Few Minutes To Pull Off
Watch the tutorial for this fancy ponytail. This sleek and polished look is comfortable, easy to pull off, and not at all fussy. Once you master teasing the back and sides, you’ll be able to pull your hair together in a couple of minutes, and your hair will look polished all day.
2. A Simple Yet Classy Hairstyle For All Game Of Thrones Moms
All Khaleesi fans in the house say woohoo! We’ve just got some quick hairstyles for you. Whether you’re looking for a cute hairdo for a night out or are getting ready for a Halloween party, this Game of Thrones-inspired hairdo is super simple.

3. Here’s One Of The Most Elegant, Quick, Easy Hairstyles For Moms
Wear this elegant messy bun to work or whenever you need to keep your hair out of your toddler’s hands. It only takes two minutes! Simply use some hair spray and a hairbrush to catch any stray hairs, beginning at the top of your head all the way down. Tie your hair in a low ponytail and on the last tie, only pull your hair through the hairband about 1/3 way through.
Take the remaining length of your hair and loop it around the tied hair and use bobby pins to secure any loose hair. Take the bottom portion of the hair and flatten it, forming a circular shape, and secure the ends with bobby pins. That’s it, guys.
4. This Easy, Classic Fishtail Milkmaid Updo Will Leave You Feeling Amazing
Two fishtail braids combine to make this darling milkmaid updo. Great way to stay cool this summer. I’ve heard a few opinions that this milkmaid braid is tough to pull off but in my experience, probably the easiest and classiest updo ever! It keeps the heat off, takes two minutes to do, and requires no fancy tools. The only catch with this hairdo is that it needs hair that hasn’t recently been washed. (As if that’s a bad thing, lol)
Now to the milkmaid updo. You will need a total of 6 bobby pins of a somewhat similar color to your hair and two elastic bands.
- Part your hair down the middle and create two pigtail braids on each side. Secure the ends with elastic and loosen the braid to make it thicker. It’s okay if it’s messy.
- Pull one braid over the top of your head. Secure with pins at the base, middle, and end of the braid
- Repeat step #2 with the other braid, tucking in the end under the other braid before pinning it
- Pull some hair to the front and drown your hair in hairspray
This has got to be the one hairstyle where messy is great!
5. This Quick, Easy Hairstyle For Moms Will Have You Feeling Like A French Babe
The word chignon comes from the French phrase ‘chignon du coup’ which means ‘nape of the neck.’ As the name suggests, the chignon is a low bun close to the nape of the neck. The modern chignon is versatile enough for casual wear but will look amazing for dressier occasions, too. It’s classy yet unbelievably easy to hack.

This topsy tail twist is casual but pulled together. It adds interest and texture without needing too much effort (or time) and when done well, looks pretty chic. Despite the fancy name, this hairstyle a lot more like a ponytail than you’d imagine.
Simply hold your hair into a low ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Push the hair tie down a bit and split the hair above the hair tie into two, creating a hole in the center.

Flip your head a few times to let the curls separate and arrange themselves on your head and finish this look off by lightly combing the ends of your hair to give them volume. Spray on some hairspray and that’s it!
