Twist back into Messy Bun | Mom Hairstyles

So many moms ask about the styles that I wear as I film hairstyles on my daughters, and how to do them. When I think about styles for the site, I pretty much only think about hairstyles on my girls. But that should not mean that I should only think about them, right? Moms are important too!

For those of you who asked, this hairstyle is the one I wore in the Lace Braid hairstyle tutorial we uploaded a week ago. I must have received at least a dozen emails about my hairdo, so here it is!

The style is simple to do, and helps keep your bangs out of your face.  Plus, you can do it in only a few minutes before running out the door in the mornings!

  1. Do you have a place where all your hairstyles are pictures in one place. I like looking at a picture and then choosing a hairstyle I would like to do. I ti d it difficult to search for your hairstyles as a whole. I am a Mom and would love to see trendy hairstyles and how you do them too. Your hair always looks adorable. Love doing my girls hair but like doing my hair too.

  2. Just found your website and YouTube channel. Love the styles! I currently have the Twistbacks with Messy Bun up to go to yoga. So simple and cute!

  3. LOVE IT Mindy!! I’ve tried all of your Mommy-dos and they are just fantastic for us busy moms! Keep them coming please!

  4. Hey there! First of all–I just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE your blog. I view many hair blogs and like a lot of the hairdos I see, but it seems like EVERY hairdo you do is exactly my style. Thank you for all the time you put into it. You are truly appreciated!

    I also wanted to make a little suggestion about your giveaways. I wondered if you might be able to start including options to enter for those of us (in the dark ages) without Facebook or a blog. I was drooling over the dresses from Shabby Apple, but then I realized that I can’t enter the giveaway.

  5. I’ve done this one before and love it! The best thing is that it is so quick and easy! I have also done it on my girlie and love the result of the twist after I take it out of her hair the next day. So fun!

  6. Thanks! I’m going to try this once my hair gets a little longer(its too short for even a ponytail right now) I LOVE all your hairdo ideas for my little girl! We need more mommydo’s! 🙂

  7. LOVE this! So cute and so quick! I JUST cut 13 inches off my hair and it is now your length so Im looking for new styles! Thank you for this one!! I will be trying it tomorrow!! =)
