I wear my hair in a side braid everyday. I can do it while it’s wet, and it only takes about 2 minutes. It’s kind of boring, but I don’t have time to do my hair these days.

Pappy8:  Not a mom but I have very long hair and I’m super active. My hair is naturally curly but you could easily do my styles with straight hair too: 

1. High loose bun. Easy and out of the way! 

2. High pony tail with vintage spin. When I do a pony tail I start by parting my hair on the side. Then I take a tiny pice from each side and pin it back while bumping it forward a bit for a faux pinup look. After that part is done (takes 2 bobby pins, one for each side) I put my hair in a high ponytail. I often add a bow but I know some ladies don’t like that look. 

3. Low ponytail. Again, I part my hair and then simply put an elastic near the nape of my neck. I think keeping a part in it makes it look a bit more feminine. 

4. Half up/half down. I take a large (but cute) hair barrette and do a half up/half down without a part. Check etsy for pretty/cute/trendy hair accessories.

For work and the gym my go to is a french braid, keeps hair out of the face (and baby hands).

No help, just commiserate.  I’m about to call and make an appointment to get mine cut.  I haven’t been able to get a cut in way too long, and baby is just starting to like to grab and pull my hair when I pick him up.

Ponytail for 6 months lol.  Between that and so much hair falling out from 4mo-10mopp I just wore it up usually.  Not exciting but it works really well.  She is 14mo now so I can wear it down if I wish without much issue.  I’ve braided my hair before and that works nicely to keep all the tangles out.

I’m not a mom, but I workout a lot and get lazy doing my hair after showering 😉 When my hair was longer I used a sock-bun a LOT and it looks super chic and way easy! I got the foam sock-bun thingy at h&m. I just tie my hair up at the crown of my head and roll the sock bun thing on, and wrap my hair down around it. I just pulled this image off of google 🙂-font-b-Hair-b-font-Volumizing-Scrunchie-Donut-Ring-Style-font-b-Bun-b-font

I just get some of those big claw clips and have them on hand.  I wash my hair every 2-4 days, so on the first day I leave it down or clip half back.  2nd day I might get away with that too.  3rd day, up it goes. I’ll also take an elastic, pull it all up like a high pony but not pull the hair through on the last loop….then take the “tail” hanging out and wrap around the base (tuck it under the elastic) and fan out my hair until it looks decent.  It’s like of like a bun only higher and fluffier.  I look strange with a typical bun so that’s not an option for me.  I also might do a french twist and clip it all up without leaving the tail out.  Those claw clips are lifesavers to me!

Pappy8:  I do a low messy bun when I’m at home. Sometimes I’ll do a French braid to the top of my neck and put the rest in a bun. Like this:

I’m not a mom, but I have very long hair and love using hair sticks. They’re cheap, they can hold a hairstyle all day, and they can be a nice accessory.

Pony tail or bun! Don’t cut it if you don’t really want to.

My hair is very long (a few inches above my butt), and my  almost 2 year old son yanks it like a rope. He doesn’t understand yet that it hurts. I almost always have it in a ponytail or wrapped in a bun. Cutting it is not going to help, he yanks FIs hair too. If their little fingers can grab it they will, just keep it as you like it 🙂

I feel like mom cuts are for the moms who don’t want to deal with blowdrying and styling and maintaince and less about the kids grabbing it.

Pappy8:  HAHHAHAH my daughter is 4 months today too and I am seriusly considering the mom bob.   I have had one in the past well before having her.  I like that my hair looks styled without me having to do anything but straighten it.

I am not a mom but just got my hair cut very short and it’s so liberating! There are tons of really cute styles out there to choose from, if you get sick of up dos. I live in FL and it’s just too hot for me to have any hair on my neck!
