Mum Hair Hacks

As a new mum or a mum who has been struggling to find her old self, many can find the huge life change isolating. But as a mum feeling good and giving time back to yourself can go a long way…

ghd UK ambassador Zoë Irwin suggests her quick-fix hair hacks that will stand up to the soft-play action but also make you feel just a little bit more like you!

Undone Bun

1 “Tie your hair up into a ponytail and then pull a few pieces out around the hairline. Smooth these pieces out using the ghd platinum + styler (£175). Then, split the pony in two and put a curl in each side using either your ghd platinum + styler (£175) or ghd curve soft curl tong (£120); take both ends, twist in to each other and wrap around the pony tail base. Finally, pin with criss-cross pins for security.

Half Up Half Down

2 “Pull back a diamond-shaped section of hair at the crown and tease it at the root using the ghd narrow dressing brush (£7.50). Smooth out the surface using ghd oval dressing brush (£20) and lift the crown with your hands. Now take a piece from the front either side, tie them in a knot and pin down – this intricate knot will really elevate this simple look.”

Velvet Pony

3 “This is a super simple classic look – tie hair into a pony and then twist the ends around the ghd soft curl tong (£120) in two sections for a loose wave. Then, tie a very fine velvet ribbon around your pony tail and brush through the ends for a super luxe everyday pony!”
