Need a new hairdo to compliment your busy lifestyle? Here are five classic, low-maintenance hairstyles for busy moms and women on the go. Hopefully, one of these classic hairstyles can inject a little extra time into your busy schedule.
Usually, the first idea of a style that comes to mind when we think of chic hairstyle is not that of a woman with long hair in a ponytail. However, if done perfectly and that look elegant and sophisticated, the tail is the best choice (think, for example, Jennifer Lopez or Angelina Jolie on one of their shows on the red carpet). Get an outfit appropriate is easier if you are equipped with a hand in more available to help.
I’ll confess that I’m a bit ambivalent about this hairstyle. A bob hairstyle can be fab, but it can also look dowdy. It really depends on your stylist, so if you decide to cut your hair into a short bob, make sure you go see a really good stylist “ it can make all the difference between wow! and blah.
Braided hairstyles are very popular this year and very easy and comfortable to wear. You can inspire your braid style from Lauren Conrad, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nicole Richie, Amanda Bynes, etc. Choose a style which suits you best and you will look stylish in no time.
I know, you hear the word “bun” and immediately think of an old schoolmarm, or librarian. But a simple bun can be an elegant, chic hairstyle if done correctly. Here’s the trick: instead of twisting the hair into a bun at the back of the head, drop it down to the nape of the neck. Use a little styling product and a brush to smooth your hair flat and bring it down and back to a gathering point at the base of the skull. Twist the hair into a bun and pin it in place with bob pins. A little hairspray and a couple of gentle pats to control any fly-away strands and you’ve got a sleek, chic look that’s sure to turn heads.
A favorite of actress Sharon Stone, the classic pixie hairstyle is sometimes referred to as a crop style. A pixie hairstyle is a very short cut, with layers extending from the crown of the head down to the nape of the neck. As a child, I can remember pitching a fit for a pixie haircut. All my friends in school had pixie haircuts, and I had to have one too. If you have an attractive face with great bone structure, you may be able to pull off this classic haircut. Keep in mind that the pixie hairstyle requires frequent trips to the hairdresser for maintenance cuts.
