Do you have a "mom" hair cut?

I just cut most of my hair off and dyed it a autumn red. Did anyone else go to a mom-do?

  • well I have had a mom do, but not on purpose, I cut it all off edgy like, but then as it started growing out it looked very "mom cut" but now its about medium length

  • haha no!! i could not do that! i chopped my hair off and like it black but not to a point where it needs to be a mom-do. my cousin chopped her long beautiful hair off and went super short where you can spike it out and gawd only knows why she keeps it like that...

  • I don't.... yet. Mine is still long, but if my hair looked good short in a little "bob" I would go for it. I cut it short right before I found out I was pregnant with my first, and regretted it, and haven't got it cut since (just trims) I'm sure I will one day have a mom-do but it's just not time yet. I hope you like your hair! I get jealous of some women who totally pull off the short do's!

  • what is a mom-haircut? by looking at the majority of soccer moms/PTA/carpoolers, i'd say its everything..especially a shoulder-length long, layerd shag..if its shorter, its the a-line bob. if its longer than the shoulders, its just long.

    there is no such thing as a mom-haircut. short vs long is such a blast of insecurity. quit hating on women who don't cling to their high school-cheerleader-length hair. some ladies look awesome with short hair, some with long hair.

  • Considering I haven't gotten it cut in over six months it is definitely not a mom cut, lol. It is almost to the middle of my back now. Not that anyone can tell as I leave it up in a ponytail all the time.

  • after having my son 3 years ago i cut off all my long hair because it was just becoming too much to take care so i went short and it has been much easier since. i don't miss my long hair i like being able to get brush my hair and go.
