Hairstyles for Busy Moms – 5 Styles To Keep In Mind On Crazy Days

I’m all about finding and sharing hairstyles for busy moms. With 5 kids, I’ve become a pro at making sure I have hairstyles, beauty routines and outfits on reserve that I can “toss on” and go. I love looking good and feeling my best. It’s so important to make sure we’re doing what we can (especially right now) to keep ourselves sane with our busy lifestyles.

Hairstyles for Busy Moms

I started sharing hair tutorials for women and girls back in March when the quarantine started. My daughter and I started a TikTok together and we had no idea what to share, so we just started doing hairstyles. Not just any hairstyles, super easy hairstyles. I wanted hairstyles for busy moms that were practical and useful for kids and the moms themselves!


We didn’t realize how much fun we’d have sharing them with everyone. We started doing a hairstyle s day through March, April, May, June, July, August and into the fall season. My goal? Just showing moms that you don’t have to be an expert at hair to create gorgeous hairstyles on yourself or your kids.

Simple Hairstyles You Can Do On Your Own

I quickly learned that the easiest styles for moms are the best styles for moms. I started to come up with different hairstyles for busy moms that could be done in less than 5 minutes and some less than a minute!

It’s been amazing seeing so many moms try my hairstyles on their kids and themselves. It makes me so happy to see that ANYONE can create a cute hairstyle (yes, dads – too!).
