What’s your go-to hairstyle mama?

Ours is scrape it up in a bun, hunt for a hair bobble, fail, steal one from the kids, tie and voila. Not very glam. But who has the time? We asked around for a few 5 minute hairdo ideas that don’t involve the chop, from curling your hair at home into glossy waves (haven’t you ever wondered exactly how to do that properly?) to a cheat service that comes to you plus intel on easy up dos!

LeeKaJa Beauty Salon
LeeKaJa, one of Korea’s best known brands is the go-to spot for a total Korean beauty experience. They do pampering hair treatments, plus makeup, nail art and eyelash services too. Stylists (who are bilingual no less), can give you a full style consultation for the total look. Want in on the secrets of how to get that on-trend wave at home?

Hairstyle: Loose Waves
1. Apply heat protection serum to prevent hair damage.
2. Part hair into chunky sections and curl with a curling tong at 180 for 5 seconds.
3. Avoid curling the tips of your hair to achieve a natural curl.
4. Curl your bangs slightly to complete the look.
5. Loosen the curls with a bit of a serum to achieve a shinier finish. Watch the vid above for the full look!

Hairstyle: Boho Bun  (left)
1: Secure hair into a low ponytail (for a side bun, secure just behind the ear). Tease lightly and spray with hair  spray. Leave out front sections for curling later.
2: Divide the ponytail into four sections. Take one section and loosely wrap around the hair tie. Secure with bobby pins. Repeat this step with remaining three sections.
3: Curl the hair segments at the front and let them fall around your face. Set with hairspray.

Hairstyle: Cascading Pony Tail (right)
BONUS! This hairstyle works best on unwashed hair.
1: Tie hair into a low ponytail and plait, secure with a band at the bottom.
2: Take your hair straightener and pass over plait, section by section holding for 3 seconds at a time (depending on heat settings). Repeat. Set with hairspray.
3: Remove bottom band and carefully undo the plait. Gently run your fingers through the curls to separate, then use a ribbon to tie a bow around the top band.

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀

Have you caught your self yelling at your children? We have all been guilty of this and it has not been our finest moment. Would you like to learn how to be a calm and collected parent? This long weekend would be a good time to practice 😀 Our #linkinbio has the details from @respectfulmom.
