Juggling your career, your household chores and your family can be tough. You may be wishing for more than 24 hours in a day to get things done, but reality always hits you as time ticks by. If you are like most moms, you probably do not have a great deal of time to spend in front of the mirror. Some celebrities are as busy as you are, and they wear hairdos that go with their hectic lifestyles. Mimic their hairstyles to ease up your load.
Halle Berry’s Pixie Cut
Chop your locks for a simple, no-frills hairstyle. Shorter hairstyles are ideal for people who are always on the go. A pixie cut is short enough that you can get away with just washing and air-drying it every day. Halle Berry’s pixie cut looks stunning whether she is at the park playing with her daughter Nahla or walking the red carpet.
Cut your hair a little higher than your nape. Cut the hair around your ears so that they are visible. Keep the bangs short and leave a little hair on each side of your face to frame your cheeks. Halle Berry’s hairstylist created layers to give her pixie cut texture and a little spike on top. The result gives Halle a rugged and relaxed look. When she needs to attend glitzy Hollywood events, all Halle has to do is to dab on a little mousse or gel. She works her fingers through her layered locks for added depth. A light-hold spray gives her layered pixie cut a little lift.
Nicole Richie’s Long Layered Hairstyle
Nicole Richie gained notoriety as the real- and reel-life BFF of Paris Hilton. When it comes to how she wears her hair, nothing is far from the truth about living “The Simple Life,” the title of their reality show. Although her real life may not be so simple, at least she manages to keep her hairstyles fuss-free. One of the simplest and carefree of Nicole Richie’s hairstyles is her long layered hairstyle.
To achieve the look, add layers to your long hair. Keep the bangs at eyebrow level and parted at the center. Wear your hair like a hippie, leaving it a little messy. After washing your hair, dry with a towel and apply mousse with your fingers to remove knots and tangles. Tousle your hair, and let your hair down. It isn’t necessary to brush your hair all day. Use headbands or bandanas as accessories if you desire.
Katie Holmes’ Blunt Bob Cut
Since joining mommyhood, Katie Holmes has been seen sporting shorter hairstyles. Becoming mommy to Suri takes up a lot of Katie Holmes’ time, which she juggles with her acting career and being Mrs. Tom Cruise.
One of Katie’s favorites is the blunt bob cut. The hairstylist trimmed Katie’s hair in strong, blunt lines at chin level. The blunt ends frame Katie’s face well. Katie parts her hair on one side, which allows her to side-sweep her bangs across her forehead. Styling a blunt bob cut is a breeze; just wash and air-dry. Applying styling mousse or gel will help tame the bangs.
