How busy are you? SO busy right? I get it. It's the stage of life we're in. We're officially time crunched moms and we need tips and tricks that will help us navigate life as seamlessly as possible. Sometimes a game changing tip could be something as simple as an easy hairstyle. I don't know about you, but I don't relish always being the hot mess mom in the drop off line. Sure, it happens. We all have those off days, but if I can grab even 5 extra minutes for myself in the morning, I can throw together an easy look that says somewhat put together mom. It's ok if it's mostly a mirage. Bwah! Athleisure also plays a big role in that, but I digress. Let's talk about the easy hairstyle for time crunched moms that I mentioned...
Long Live the Side Braid
I'm not sure at which point having long hair doesn't work, but I plan on rocking it through my thirties and right on into my forties! I simply find it easier to manage than shorter hair. It's not like I haven't tried. I tested short hair in my twenties. It looked like a helmet. Course, wavy/curly hair like mine simply doesn't love short hairstyles. So, long hair it is. And one of my favorite long hair hairstyles is a side braid. It doesn't get any easier than this style, and with the right product, it can look so polished. Nothing beats hair that looks like it took longer to do than it did, am I right? Oh and, on a side note, the side braid is a great way to get one more day out of your blowout. Your hair will still look sleek thanks to the blowout, but you can hide roots that are ready for a wash. Haha!

All you need to get this easy hairstyle is to first add a hair plumping product to your roots. If you don't have at least a little bit of volume around your face, it ages you. That's the same reason I don't braid my hair super tightly. A loose, Elsa like braid is where it's at. For root plumping, I love Davines Naturaltech Replumping Hair Filler Superactive. I simply spritz it all over my damp hair because I like a little volume everywhere, but you can just do your roots if you so desire. This miracle product gives my hair some heft and makes my braid look thicker, fuller and more youthful! That's right, this hairstyle will make you look less hot messy AND younger. Score! Hey, anytime I can kill two birds with one stone I'm all for it. Metaphoricaly speaking of course.
