I hear it all the time – kids wanting French plaits and frills and mum’s in the middle of making lunch boxes and breakfast and barely has time to put on her face before doing the school run! Here are some easy morning time-savers for stylish back-to-school hair…
Fight with the hairbrush
Get madam to brush her own hair before you get styling! Try a ‘tangle-teezer’-style hair brush to make it easier to get started and then you’ll have knot-free hair to work with.
Wash and condition
Using a detangling conditioner and then combing hair is a great help, so you don’t fight with brushing in the morning.
The night before
Long hair easily gets tangled overnight, so do the centre parting and two Pippi Longstocking- style plaits for bed and hair will be tangle-free in the morning.
French plaits made easy
There’s no way round a French plait – you just have to practice a few times to get it right! Start right at the top as bringing in the three sections of the plait from where the fringe would be and weave in hair from the sides, as you continue to plait down the length of the hair. It will take a while so you might want to opt for a pony tail or a topknot if you’re strapped for time!
Ribbons, JoJo bows, Alice bands, clips (depending on the school rules, of course) – make the simplest hairstyle into something special! It’s definitely best to choose the night before so you have more time to get your make-up done in the morning😉
