â€œThe phrase â€˜working motherâ€™ is redundant.â€ (Jane Sellman)
How true! Being a mother is arguably one of the toughest jobs out there.
The work load doubles for working moms, super women like you who have
to juggle being career women with a myriad of other roles. Like being a
parent, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a domestic diva and
inevitably, a take-over-everything working machine that wastes no time
thinking about your own well-being. With so much going on, itâ€™s so easy
to lose yourself in all the roles you have to play.
Looking your best may not be a number one priority anymore, but who says
you have to sacrifice much for a little more oomph in your style? Here
are simple tricks to adding some flair to your hair in a jiffy.
Those gorgeous loose waves that Hollywoodâ€™s favorite females pull off so
easily is actually something you can pull off easily! Itâ€™s quick and
simple: while your hair is damp, braid it before going to bed. Voila!
Youâ€™ll wake up with beach-worthy waves. Tip: braid your hair tightly so
it wonâ€™t get frizzy.
If you really want to take the easy way out, then hair accessories are
the way to go. Just pick a style you fancy then clip it on your hair and
youâ€™ve added instant flair to an otherwise blah hair style. And youâ€™re
just in time. Ultra feminine hair accessories are quickly becoming in
vogue again, as seen on trend-setters like Lady Gaga, Nicole Richie and
Leighton Meester, and even on the runways of Marc Jacobs.
Make sure that those hair accessories can keep up with your hectic day.
Choose hair clips that are guaranteed non-slip. No, non-slip clips are
not just for babies. In fact, with a schedule as busy as yours, youâ€™re
bound to move around a lot more than a baby. All the more that you need
hair clips that stay put all day! Theyâ€™re not just for flair but also to
keep your hair from getting in your way.
There are tons of designs to choose from; whichever suits your personal
style. For a little mom and me bonding moment, you can even choose a
clip for your little one that matches yours! Iâ€™m sure your little girl
(or any sweet girl in your life) would adore them as baby gifts.
SHORT AND SIMPLE
If you donâ€™t like your hair getting in the way, try a shorter hair
style. An easy-to-maintain choice is a sleek bob, which is
fashion-forward too. Try looking at the very posh Victoria Beckham for
bob-inspiration. She keeps it very simple and yet manages to still be
Youâ€™re a busy woman; of course you donâ€™t have time to blow dry! But
donâ€™t let the bad-hair-day monster get to you. Just let your hair air
dry instead. Did you know that when your hair dries naturally, itâ€™s much
stronger than when dried with a blow dryer? Not only is it a
stress-free solution, it gives you extra shine too! The oil from your
scalp helps hair look shinier.
SLEEP ON IT
You donâ€™t always have to run to a salon for all your hair 911s. You can
do plenty of great deep conditioning treatments right at the comfort of
home. Choose a leave-in deep conditioning treatment and let it do the
work for you while you sleep!
