Glorious Hair Tips For Busy Women

mother and children in park( — You only have so much time, and you’d love to not have to worry too much about your hair…while, of course, still looking stylish.

The secret? Low-maintenance hair starts with the right cut—and a few style shortcuts that’ll save you time, money and morning-time stress.

Make your hair last longer between salon visits…

• Don’t go too short. Although you might think super short hair is low maintenance, the opposite can actually be true.

“Super-short cuts require frequent trims and more styling than shoulder length or longer ones,” says Caroline Anderson, director of global marketing for Redken. “Plus, short hair can’t be put into a twist or ponytail when you’re short on time.”

• Say no to lots of layers. A blunt cut with long layers only in the front requires way less maintenance, and is universally flattering.
