Enjoying motherhood and taking care of your looks at the same time can sometimes seem like mission impossible. Fortunately, mothers today have a lot of options for keeping up their appearance while investing very little time.

Whatever your preferences may be, there are options that will allow you to appear fresh and put together any time.
4 simple hairstyles for busy moms with shorter hair
Braids are always a great idea when you’re in a rush, and there are all sorts of variations you can play with.
You can do a simple braid down the back of your neck, or braid all of your hair to one side.
You can also go for two braids, one on each side. If you have more skilled fingers, you can French braid your hair.
Another option is to create a small French braid to one side, using just the hair above your forehead. This, by the way, is also a great way to keep your bangs out of your face.
Finish the braid off with a bobby pin above your ear. You can leave the rest of your hair down, or pull it back into a low ponytail or bun for a more romantic (and practical) look.
If you want a more charming look, you can go for princess braids. Create two small braids, one on each side of your head, using just the hair that frames your face.
Join the two braids in the back of your head to form one single braid. Leave the rest of your hair down.
No matter how you braid your hair, this will be sure to give you a fresh, carefree and natural look.
2. Bob cut
This style involves cutting the hair shorter in the back, and leaving it a little bit longer in the front – usually about chin length.
This style goes great with bangs cut just above your brows, though you can also go bang-free.
3. Pixie cut
This short style is ideal for practical moms. It’s one of the simplest options for moms with no time.
The style consists of cutting the hair very short on the sides and in the back, but leaving it a bit longer on top, with bangs.
As for the bangs, symmetry is optional. You can leave them short, long, or layered, straight down, or to the side.
You can easily create a crown hairstyle that looks fantastic. All you need is a large elastic headband that fits around your head like a tiara. It should go from about 2 inches behind your forehead, down to your neck.
Once you’ve placed the elastic band on your head, start wrapping your hair around it, inwards, starting near your temples.
Do this with all of your hair to create a sort of crown around your head.
4 simple hairstyles for busy moms with long hair
1. Braided crown
Weave a thin braid starting at your temple towards the back. Repeat the process on the the other side.
Once you’ve made both braids, weave them around each other to form a sort of crown in the back of your head. Leave the rest of your hair down.
You can also weave a ribbon or string into the braids that matches whatever you’re wearing at the moment.
2. Tied ponytail
This variation of the half ponytail is gorgeous and easy to pull off. Part your hair to one side or down the middle. Grab a portion of hair from each side – about as much as you would for a half ponytail.
Holding a strand of hair in each hand, tie a simple knot, just as if you were tying a pair of shoelaces.
Once you’ve tied the knot, join the strands together. Clip the knot into place with bobby pins that blend into your hair color.
Busy moms with curly hair can play around with their appearance with the help of braids. Braids help to give your hair a tidier look, and can last for several days.
3. Braid to one side
This style is ideal for women with rounder faces. All you have to do is braid your hair to one side so that it falls towards the front of one shoulder. You can choose a simple braid, French braid, fishtail, etc.
4. French braid crown
Here you weave your hair into a French braid, working from one side to the other across the back of your head. You can leave the rest of your hair down, or tie it in a ponytail or bun.
