Christina Aguilera admits she's no hairdresser, but she's doing the best she can when it comes to doing her daughter's hair.

Speaking to PEOPLE in this week's issue, the singer and mom of two, 42, says her 8-year-old daughter Summer Rain has "pushed me to learn how to do some hair."

"She likes to put these little pigtail braids in. So every morning I'm up with her before school, trying to use a spiky comb to split her hair in the back," she explains. "I am no hairdresser, let me tell you, but God bless being a mom, and we'll do anything to make our kids feel good."

"You want to instill the message that they hold the real beauty," she adds.

Aguilera, who shares Summer with fiancé Matt Rutler and is also mom to son Max Liron, 14, with ex-husband Jordan Bratman, also opens up about raising a daughter in the age of social media.

"I think it's great to be open so that we take the stigma out of shame around beauty and making each other feel like something isn't right," she says. "I've always been a preacher of feeling good about yourself, doing what's right for you. What I do might not be for everybody, and vice versa."

"There are many things that we worry about, especially as moms with social media, but I think that one of the positives is that we can really support each other, share information, and gain a lot of insight from it."
