Dump the Mom Frump: 6 Easy Hairstyles

By Nichole |

easy hairstyles, hair tutorials, cute hairstylesLast Saturday, I had all of my hair chopped off. All. Of. It.

It reached past my bra strap and now skims my shoulders. (You can see the before and after pictures over at in these small moments.)

I have a love-hate relationship with my ponytail. As much as I wish I didn’t rely on it, I need some way to pull my hair back when I’m wrangling my kids all day.

So, once my a-maz-ing stylist, Melissa, gave me my great new cut, I asked for some ideas on how I could style it in a prettier and more stylish way than my ponytail.

She pulled together some easy styles that I can do in just a few minutes. (I also love Melissa’s tutorials for curling short hair, doing a fun side braid, and creating beachy waves.)

To learn even more new tips and tricks, be sure to like Melissa’s Facebook page, where she shares pictures, videos, and ideas.

Here are the styles she came up with…

Early Morning Hair

Melissa bravely sent me this photo, taken just moments after she woke up so that she could best illustrate her before and after hairstyles. (I wish I looked this cute when I woke up!)

Thank you SO much, Melissa!
