Go from mum to sexy mamma with these low maintenance hair looks
It’s time to ditch the sterotype of mums with young kids in messy buns at the school gate. While being a mum is undoubtedly a hard job, it doesn’t mean that mums aren’t also sophisticated, stylish and sexy. In fact, mums can rock some of the coolest hair looks around. We love these celebrity mum hairstyles and the best thing is, they’re totally low maintenance.
The bob – like Reese Witherspoon
“I don’t think you can go wrong with a concave bob,” says Barney Martin, Pantene Ambassador & Hair Expert. “The style frames the face nicely, it’s still quite fun and youthful, it works well with both straight and curly hair, and it doesn’t require regular trims as it still looks great once it grows longer.”
Top tip: for an extra sleek bob, use your straightener to curl the ends slightly inwards and smooth over using Pantene Styling Treatment Foam Smooth Straight.
Ombre colour – like Jessica Alba
“This look is great for mums looking to spend less time in the salon as it requires a lot less fuss compared to your average half head of foils” says Janelle Dongalen, Technical Director and Trainer at Lucespace Salon. “All you need to keep it looking fresh is a gloss treatment every 6-8 weeks and ensure you’re using a colour conditioner at home.” The best thing about this hair look is it doesn’t require nearly as many touch-ups or visits to the salon because the regrowth just adds to the look!
Top tip: those with greys can also enjoy the benefits of this regrowth-loving look by simply using Clairol Nice'n Easy Root Touch Up when necessary.
Crazy cool colour – like Nicole Richie
Who says mums can’t be edgy? Having an out of the ordinary hair colour ensures all attention is drawn to the colour, so you can spend less time on styling and more time being the coolest mum ever. Janelle recommends using a colour maintenance range such as Aveda Colour Conserve Shampoo & Conditioner to keep the colour vibrant.
