Did you get the mom cut after baby?

Most moms I know all got the short bob cut after having their first and then let their hair grow back after that.

  • I got my hair cut shorter than I have ever had it while I was preg with my second. It was soooo hot this past summer that I didn't even care. It.s right above my shoulders tho so it's not too too short.

  • No I just can't see myself with short hair like that. I've always kept it a medium to long length.

  • No. I had long hair with both children.  Kept it in a ponytail a lot of the time.  But, I did get it cut when my first grandson was born.    I took care of him a lot the first few months. (My daughter had back surgery.)    I preferred the ponytail.   Now, it's longer again.

  • no no no no no. i kept my hair long. i'm gonna cut it to a short punk rock pixie cut just so i can grow it out again cause my hair is so dead from dying it for years. it only looks good right after its washed and dried and then a couple hours after that its all knotted and poofy. i had great hair before i started dying it so i hope that growing my natural hair color out will bring back my old hair

  • I got my hair cut, but that was because it was the first opportunity I had to get my hair cut in like a year. It was around the level of my bra strap and I got it cut to around my shoulders, with lots of layers. I don' know anyone who got the bob cut, but I think I know the specific cut you're talking about.
