Considering that most working mums do not have the time for complicated things, these hairstyles will easily give us the trendy look without creeping into our “always” busy schedule.


Braids/Crotchet Braids

Buns are a busy mum’s best friend. Park your hair into a ponytail and then make a Bun. Popularly called a Doughnut.

Still, you get the chic look. It’s super sexy, super easy to do, requires minimal effort, it is fun, and goes with almost any look. It is less stressful and can work for any weather condition.
