Great Hairstyles for New Moms
May is the month we celebrate moms, and it’s a particularly special time of year for new moms and new moms-to-be. A new baby gives you less time to focus on your style, but there are some terrific, easy-care hairstyles that can help you look great while caring for your new little one.
Ponytail. One of the easiest styles to pull off is the classic ponytail, which works great for new moms because it gets your hair out of the way while letting your natural hair flow down the back. The trick to a great looking ponytail is in the styling product. Before pulling it back, try applying a professional styling product with argon oil for a smoother look.
Bangs. If you’d like to start off your new role as a mom with a different look, try adding bangs, which help you change up your look without committing to a drastic new cut. They completely change the look of your style, framing your face and adding a whole new look to your existing cut. If you’re nervous about a short bang cut, try curtain bangs first, which are longer, parted in the center, and flow into the rest of your hair.
Braids. Like ponytails, braids are a great choice for new moms. Braids come in so many different styles that it’s easy to find one that really showcases your personality. Whether it’s a long chunky braid across the side, the unique twisted pipe braid, or a braided bun updo, every look using braids is just a little bit different so that you can show off your style.
Top knot. For long hair, a great option for new moms is the top knot. It’s all about the half bun look that lets the rest of your hair flow naturally down the back. Top knots are great for both straight and curly or wavy hair because they let you show off your texture while crowning the look with an elegant small bun.
Pixie cut. If you love short hair, a pixie cut can be the perfect new style as you become a new mom. These short, elegant cuts have tons of layers but little upkeep, so they make it easier to go about your day with your new baby without worrying about your style.
Side-part sweep. For long, wavy hair, the side-part sweep looks fantastic for new moms. It’s all about the side part, with most of your hair swept over to the opposite side for a beautiful, flowing look that really highlights your hair’s texture.
There are many hairstyles to choose from that are perfect for new moms! Just ask your expert stylist at Village Salon & Spa to help you decide which new hairstyle will work best for you. And in between salon appointments, don’t forget about your haircare routine, which helps keep your hair looking healthy and feeling fantastic. Thankfully, a good haircare routine is easy when you follow just a few simple tips.
- Shampoo infrequently. This is a great tip for busy new moms, and it’s also great for your hair! Too much shampooing can strip hair of natural moisturizing oils, so we recommend shampooing only 2 or 3 times each week. Between shampoos, use a professional dry shampoo product and your hair will always look and smell fresh and clean.
- Condition every day. Even when you don’t shampoo, your hair needs conditioner to stay soft and healthy looking. Ask your Village Salon stylist about the best products, including professional leave-in conditioners, to help your hair look its best. Always use professional products, which are formulated to care for your hair.
- Avoid excess heat. Your Village Salon stylist can help you choose a style that requires less blow drying and fewer heated styling tools. This is helpful to your hair because it reduces damage-causing heat, but it’s also great as a new mom because it saves time.
