Every mom — whether you have one child or ten — knows that finding the time to do their hair and makeup can often be hard to get. I’m such a makeup addict that I’d prefer to spend all my free time doing my makeup, so I’m always finding new ways to elevate super-easy hairstyles so I can get ready and out the door in time. Today I’m sharing two easy hairstyles using my all-time favorite brushes — Goody! Ready to tame the frizz and crazy messy buns?
For all of these hairstyles I am using Goody’s hairbrushes. You can find any of these brushes that I use in today’s tutorial at your local Walmart in the Hair Care section. They’re good quality brushes and are very nostalgic for me. They’re the brand my mom always bought for me growing up. 🙂 Goody has a brush for every type of hair — they even have one called Ouchless for brushing young girl’s hair so that it won’t pull at their knots. No more tears! I definitely will be purchasing that brush when Olivia get’s older!
Mini Half Updo
The two brushes I will use for this first hairstyle tutorial is the Goody TangleFix brush and the Goody Gelous Grip Paddle Brush. These brushes focus on getting the tangles out without damaging your hair — which is so important to keep the frizz away! I don’t know about you, but my hair is always crazy frizzy after I shower and I got so tired of having to dry it and straighten it. So I’ve got a neat trick to share that will save time and that I use all the time!
Step 1 // This hairstyle I’m starting with freshly washed hair. I always wait to start a hairstyle until my hair is about 50% dried on it’s own. And this is for several reasons — I’m able to do other stuff around the house while it dries and it takes less time with the hairdryer. 🙂
Step 2 // Using the Goody TangleFix brush, start from the bottom and brush out any tangles. Working from the bottom up will keep your hair from stretching and breaking. Take your time working out any knots, but with this brush it really is almost effortless to fix those annoying tangles!
Step 3 // Using the Goody Gelous Grip Paddle brush, use it to dry your hair in a downward motion. This is where the magic happens. Using a paddle brush as you dry your hair helps reduce frizz and straighten your hair at the same time!
Step 4 // For the hair at the back of my neck, I still use the brush to help straighten my hair as it’s drying. If you’re careful not to blow your hair everywhere, I can totally skip using a flat iron. And! If you don’t like the flat, non-volume look that the flat iron gives you, you’ll really appreciate this trick as it keeps the volume and fullness in your hair.
Step 6 // Instead of a comb, I used the Goody TangleFix again to brush my hair upwards and smooth out any bumps. This brush worked amazing at this job — just as good, if not better, than a comb!
Finished! That’s all there is to it! Now the bulk of my hair near my face is up and out of the way — so valuable for busy moms! — and it looks so pretty. Whenever I am not feeling put together, I do this hairstyle. It’s so much fancier than a messy bun! 😛
Elegant Side Ponytail
Okay, next hairstyle is a spin on the typical boring ponytail. For this tutorial you don’t have to start with freshly washed hair — in fact, this is often the hairstyle I default to when I am past-due for a washing! 😛 I am only needing one hair tool — the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush. Have you seen this brush at your local Walmart yet? It is so neat! Not only does it brush your hair and keep out the tangles, but this brush is made with copper bristles that helps to reduce the natural buildup in the hair causing your hair to look healthier and more radiant (Thus the name).
Step 1 // Brush out any knots (I always get a few when I wake up in the morning!) using the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush. Because the bristles are copper, be gentle with this brush against your scalp. 🙂
Step 2 // Brush all your hair to whichever side you prefer (I brought it to my right side). Make sure any bumps or frizzy pieces are tamed. This is going to be a low ponytail, so bring it all to just below your ear.
Step 3 // Tie your hair with an elastic hairband. Because your keeping this ponytail low and close to your ear, it’ll allow you to capture all those baby hairs and whispies that always want to do their own thing (another reason I love this hairstyle!).
Step 4 // Separate a small section from the back of the ponytail.
Step 6 // Using that small braid, wrap it around the hair tie to conceal it. Depending on how long your hair is, you can wrap it once or twice. I was able to wrap it around twice. Make sure it’s very tight so it doesn’t start to slip down throughout the day.
Step 7 // Using as many hair pins as needed, secure the braid at the back of your neck. Adjust the placement of the braids so that the hairband is completely hidden. Remove the elastic tie at the bottom of the braid and undo whatever braid is left so that the tail blends into your hair.
Finished! That’s all there is to it! Just finish off with some hairspray to keep everything in place. If you follow me on Snapchat, you’ll know I was wearing this hairstyle a couple times this past weekend. 🙂
