Simple, Cute and Quick Hairstyles

Being a busy working mother of two definitely makes my mornings really hectic. In order for me to get to work on time I have to be up by 6:15 am have the kids at the bus stop by 6:45am which leaves me with a whopping 20 minutes to get fabulous for the day. Which means I need a simple hairstlye for my busy schedule. There are times where I just simply do not feel like doing anything with my hair at all. Or sometimes my makeup is beat for the gods and  I do not want it hidden behind a veil of hair, or I just want the focus to be my jewelry or outfit for the day. Maybe it’s to cold outside, or I just want to protect my ends for a week, or its to hot and I do not feel like sweating under my hair. In other instances  the simpler the hairstyle the cuter the hairstyle. Whatever my reasoning maybe for my hairstyles (I have many) here are the basic simple hairstyles that I use which takes about 5 minutes to complete.

  1. Part hair around the front of the head, from ear to ear.
  2. Put the back in a hair tie

I have done all of these styles being in a rush for work or just being plain lazy. Or I tried a twist out that failed terribly. These hairstlyes have saved me from going out looking a hot mess on several occasions and are my staple hairstlyes for life! Sharing these styles with you to save you time or to give you a new go to hairstlye. 

What’s your quick and simple hairstlye? How long does it take you to achieve it?

Much Love,
