Who has seen the SNL skit on the “mom cut“? Hilarious right? It’s been joked about that women, once they have children, resort to what some would dub the “mom cut” and some ladies out there may be rocking and owning it. But I feel that there is an emerging group of mom’s that are looking for something that can be easily swept up out of their face when elbow deep in spaghetti stains or trying to keep their locks clear of spit-up, but are still hopeful to be thought of as trend setters all the while. Enter the lob, also known as the long bob. It’s long enough to rock a blow-out with some sexy waves, but easy to be pinned back for those mom moments when hair needs to be tamed when no child can be.
The lob is versatile and easy to differentiate with use of color (loving the un-natural shade phenomenon), fringe bangs or texturizing. Mid-length hair is literally flattering on everyone, easier to maintain and faster to style, which equals a mom win in my book.
It’s been more than 10 weeks since I was able to get into a salon, so I’m looking forward to once again lobbing off a few inches this Friday. What’s your go-to hairstyle?
