Mum Hair Hacks

June 03, 2019

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

“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. Then, split the pony in two and put a curl in each side using either your ghd platinum + styler or ghd curve soft curl tong; 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

“Pull back a diamond-shaped section of hair at the crown and tease it at the root using the ghd narrow dressing brush. Smooth out the surface using ghd oval dressing brush 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

“This is a super simple classic look – tie hair into a pony and then twist the ends around the ghd soft curl tong 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!”
