Back-to-school means long summer days are coming to a close, and the freedom of all-day wild hair will soon be faced with a brush. Classes are right around the corner, vacations are ending, and hairstyles that make sense, save time, and are easy to work with will be the saving grace of a fast-paced family morning of darting back and forth from breakfast to the hair dryer.

Moms and daughters across the globe are going to be rushing through turbulent mornings together—some for work, and some for school. To save precious minutes, we’ve come up with 3 simple, chic hairstyles that moms and daughters can don and style together. Looking clean with minimal effort and styling is the best way to get busy gals moving and ready to take on their day.

Look sharp and get ready faster with one of these 3 easy back-to-school styles:

One-length Bob

A one-length bob is typically worn above the shoulder but can creep a few inches below for desired longer lengths. This hairstyle has no layers, is incredibly easy to style, boasts clean lines and looks elegant with either straight or wavy hair. If you like to keep your hair a bit longer, you can wear a bob below the shoulder and have the freedom to pull it up—giving you more styling versatility.

Style tips: Many styling ranges can accompany a bob hairstyle. Wear it half up, load up on some volumizing spray, or flat-iron your strands into submission.

Layered Bob

Another style great for mothers and daughters, a layered bob adds more movement to the hair. Another great option on both straight and curly locks, layered bobs will add volume and give hair a complimentary shaggy tousle that’s fun and easy to work with. Depending on your hair texture, with a layered bob, you can roll right out of bed, sweep a brush through a few times, and be on your way out the door.

Style tips: For an added style bonus, you can cut the fringe (bangs) to better frame and compliment the face. A texturizing spray for a shaggy effect works well with this hairstyle.

Pixie Cut

If shorter hair is your go-to, a pixie haircut can be a contemporary and marvelously easy to work with mother-daughter hairstyle. Face shape and specific hair textures will be the determining factor on whether or not this style works well for each of you, but the length of a pixie cut can vary depending on your attributes. For example, leaving a longer pierce nape length to slim the next line or creating a short choppy fringe to bring out the eyes and strengthen the brow bone.

Style tips: For styling, a small amount of pomade is recommended, as it helps to hold that fashionably disheveled look throughout the day.

For any girl, hair often takes up the bulk of morning effort. As long as you have the proper haircut, mothers and daughters everywhere can enjoy more relaxed dawns and easy, manageable locks with these 3 invaluable hairstyles.
