14 Hairstyles You'll Spot on Moms

Jun 27 2014 - 7:13am

I'm pretty sure if I told anyone how much I spent on my hair, they'd spit their drink out in shock all over my face . . . and messy bun, which I rock 99 percent of the time. The thing about being a mom is that hair sometimes (read: almost always) takes a backseat to all that pesky child rearing. Kidding, kidding — I actually like to say, "Mom hair, don't care!" So because we all have our signature mom-hair moves, let's take a look at the most common styles you'll see on yourself and your fellow mamas (and I bet you'll even spot your go-to).

Pixie Envy Hair

Everyone knows a mama with a pixie cut, and it always looks so great that we consider chopping off our own locks, too. Imagine the time she gains from not having to blow-dry her hair ever?

Wash-and-Go Hair

You say, "Wow you must have to blow-dry your locks every morning." She says, "Nope." Wash-and-go hair is the type of hair that all moms would love to have (especially because this hair can probably be classified as number 12, but you'd never know it).

How-Does-She-Have-the-Time? Hair

Sometimes there are those moms whose hair looks so good that you know it took her a long time. And all you can do is ask yourself in awe, "How does she have the time for that? Her kids must be really, really well-behaved."
