Spending some time with your Ma this Mother’s Day is a lovely way to say thank you for everything she’s done for you over the years.
It’s good to book ahead if you’re planning on going out, as eateries of all kinds can fill up quickly on this special day. Alternatively, brunch at home with a few family members and loved ones is a perfect way to show your appreciation for mum, by going that extra step of planning and preparing a meal for her yourself. (Also a great way to avoid the crowds and price hikes.)
When it comes to buying a gift, think thoughtful rather than expensive; hand-made soap or a framed photo of the two of you.
This is a hair blog, so let’s talk about what to do with your hair. You’ll probably want to look like you’ve gone to some effort to look your best, without being overstated.
A low ponytail is chic and simple and goes with any outfit. You can make it sleek and elegant, or messy and voluminous. Wear one of our oh-so-easy to apply clip on ponytails for extra body and length.
If you’re planning on seeing more of the family that day, try a side chignon. It’s classy and easy to do, and there are plenty of how-tos you can look up online for guidance.
If it’s more of a casual one-on-one, and your mum’s into seeing your creative, fun side, the half-up top-knot is still a favourite this autumn. It can be easily helped along by adding some extensions, just keep them to a minimum for best results.
If it’s breakfast at a café, try a braided headband or a loose side braid. The trick to making this work is extra extensions on the side the braid is on. Use some hairspray and bobby pins to keep the braid from falling apart.
