I’ve been asked repeatedly to create “simple and quick mom hair tutorials” as I enter this new phase of life. While I don’t anticipate my hair tutorial days being over, I’m not sure that I can come up with a specific type of tutorial “just for moms” (other than something like “a ponytail with a spit-up and a play dough twist). A simple and quick way to pull your hair back is good to know whether you have kids or not!
So I thought I’d go through the archives and choose my favorite simple and quick tutorials to refresh your (and my) memory.
Almost any of the hair tutorials I’ve created can be achieved on straight or “bedhead” hair unless I’ve specifically said otherwise. Personally, my hair styles better with a little bend in it, which is why I often start with curled hair. Don’t let that limit you! The goal of my hair tutorials is to teach you the technique and how to work with the hair.
If you are waiting for wet hair tutorials, I want to go ahead and say you probably won’t find them here. If there’s a time where I need to be somewhere but don’t have time to wash and blow dry my hair, I’ll simply use dry shampoo and pull it back. If one day I’m struck with wet hair inspiration, I will happily eat my words and post a tutorial here!
So here are just a few of my favorite tutorials for a quick and simple style!
