New hair styles to try this year

As a busy Mum of two my hair tends to be the last thing I spend time on each morning after dashing about preparing the twins lunches, uniform, finding shoes, etc etc. So, for my hair, low maintenance and easy is the ONLY way. I thus need a style that requires little effort and products.

I’m really loving the hairstyles and accessories that are around the internet at the moment — so I’ve put together some of my favourites.

Tie it:

Clips and bows are a really big deal right now; they’re great for anyone who needs grab-and-go kind of style, yet still maintaining a chic do.

Go for a low, loose pony tail and add a statement bow or a pretty clip. This is great for days when you haven’t got any time or you are in-between hair washes.

The lob:

A lob or long bob is a form of haircut and a variant of bob cut. The length is between long hair and a bob cut. The lob is cut just above the shoulders, at shoulder level or just below.

This style is ideal for modern women who are busy and need minimal washing and drying time. It’s a super trendy haircut and looks amazing with a few beachy waves. Lush.

The Mum bun:

You’ll usually see me wearing this when I’m late for the school run, when I’m running, or when I’m having a cleaning day. It’s PERFECT for messy hair days.

However, it also looks great in spring & summer time with huge sunglasses and statement earrings. And it takes a few seconds to achieve. Win win.


Balayage is still a big trend going into 2019, and no wonder, as it’s really easy to create and maintain. If you’re fed up of your hair colour then why not ask your hairdresser for a balayage hairstyle.

I had mine done a few years ago and it’s been the best thing I have done. I love how it’s not all over blonde but get the hint of blonde in there. A really lovely look — you can add warmer tones or darker colours in if your prefer.

The fringe:

Not that easy to pull-off (my fringes have always had a mind of their own) but if you can then they are the height of sophistication. Plus they hide a multitude of sins (aka no need for botox!).

Gorgeous with a bob or for longer styles too.
