BaByliss Big Hair
Us mothers are good jugglers. But if juggling with a big brush and a hair dryer has never really been your strong point you might want to try this heated rotating brush that beauty blogs can’t get enough of. Dry your hair so it’s 60% dry and then wrap large sections of hair around the brush. You’ll have volume, bounce and a little spring in your step.
ghd Gold Classic Styler
If you’ve ever tried cheaper straighteners as well as a ghd’s, you’ll know the difference a quality tool makes. They heat in an instant, have ceramic plates that tame frizz and last for years. Plus, the barrel means that you can wrap the hair around to create curls and waves for those rare nights out without baby.
Andrew Barton I Love Volume Professional Hot Rollers
If you’ve got a glam night out planned and want to feel like a yummy mummy, then it’s time get the hot rollers! Unlike a tong, your hands will be free to do your make-up or pour yourself a glass of wine. Simply wrap sections of hair around a roller, making sure to roll the hair away from the face (it gives you the best curl) and leave them in for as long as you can or until the roller cools. The end result is maximum volume that lasts all night
John Frieda Salon Shine AC Hairdryer
There are two very mum-friendly things about this particular hairdryer. Firstly, it has such a strong motor, your hair will be dry in a couple of minutes. Secondly, it has a long cord so during those few minutes you can move about and check what the toddler is doing while you make yourself look fab.
Lee Stafford Wave Machine
For women who long for curls and waves, this gizmo is a dream come true. It comes with an attachment that slots over the barrels. With no attachment on you simply wrap your hair in a figure of 8 around the two prongs, leave for a few seconds and then unravel perfect curls. And with the attachment, you create luscious waves. Genius.
