Written by: Coleene Meers

Goddess or Glam?

No matter what your maternal style is, it's important to carve out a little me-time to look and feel your best. When you're taking care of everything (and everyone) else in your life, these moments for self-care and beauty rituals can be hard to prioritize, but they pay dividends. We put together a timesaving guide for busy moms to get the most out of local services and products no matter what style you're rocking these days.

Goddess Mom

Perfect for the Mom looking to bring out her inner Goddess. These rejuvenating services at PrettyQuick partners will lower stress in a restorative, eco-friendly environment.  You’ll feel re-charged and ready for the day as you run out the door…

Make morning styling easier... with a haircut at Chroma K8. A well-styled cut automatically cuts down on extra minutes spent with your hairdryer. As a member of Green Circle salons, Chroma K8 offers eco-friendly products and healthy salon environment. The friendly team promotes individual style and will work with you to bring out the best of your hair.

Put up those feet....at Urban Oasis. (North Ave and Maple). Their massage therapists are specially trained in pre and postnatal massage techniques and the relaxing facilities have plenty of pregnancy tables available.  There’s no better way to improve circulation and give your fatigued muscles a break. 

Look polished. Noktivo's eco-friendly and vegan nail services are 100% non-toxic, perfect for pregnancy and cuddling your little ones. A bit of shine and color on your fingertips will help you feel pulled together even when the day may be falling apart.

Glam Mama

For the Mom looking to glam it up a bit, these PrettyQuick partners are dedicated to helping you look and feel your best.  Pregnancy and parenthood can take a toll on our body and mind, so why not indulge in a little me-time (that will actually SAVE time)…

Skip the shampoo...and opt for a Goldplaited blowout. With a little dry shampoo, hair looks freshly done for a few days after your appointment. Let’s be serious, who has time to dry hair daily?

Forget the mascara...and instead grab some eyelash extensions from Art and Lashes. Applying mascara every morning can be messy and time-consuming. With extensions, you'll have long, luscious lashes the minute you wake up (even if it’s at 3 am!!).

Built-in Brows… Having well-defined brows is our favorite quick trick for making your eyes pop.  BuffBeauty in an adorably chic boutique salon whose brow shape and tint will keep your peepers looking fabulous for weeks.
