By Greer Barnes

Every woman faces the same hair dilemmas. You want a style that looks fabulous but is easy to maintain, and you want your hair color to look vibrant without an expensive dye job. Though it may take some time to find the right ‘do or color, there are plenty of modern and stylish options for busy moms. The key is experimenting and with fall already here and winter on its way, now is a better time than ever to shake things up with a new hairstyle or hue.

The Layered Mid-Length Cut

This option is great for a mom who wants to keep her hair long but cut her blow-dry time in half. Long layers add movement, but you can still easily put your hair into a ponytail anytime you want. This style is great for many different hair types from thick and straight to coarse and wavy.

“Bronde” Hair

Yes, you read that correctly: “bronde” hair. The perfect balance between dark and light locks, bronde is best for blondes who want to darken their hair during the colder months and brunettes looking to add some dimension. The best part is you can extend the time between salon appointments; bronde hair looks best when your natural hair color starts to appear at your roots.

The Wavy Pixie

Ah, the pixie. Is there a haircut more chic? Audrey Hepburn and Mia Farrow nailed it, but not everyone has their small, delicate features. That’s why a slightly longer, wavy pixie is a great option for every women who wants to try out a shorter ‘do without the upkeep or tedious styling. The haircut has been a favorite of celebrities in recent years. Actresses Audrey Tatou and Carey Mulligan have both made the wavy pixie their signature styles.

One Color Hair

For ladies who aren’t digging bronde hair and want something they can do at home, one tone color is the way to go. You can easily pick up a box of color at the drugstore and color your hair within a few hours. Model it-girl of the moment Kendall Jenner is known for her long mane of single-toned dark hair. However, be cautious when going for an all-over light hue. Many at-home blonde hair kits can make hair a brassy, orange color.
