Every once in a while I peruse the search terms used to get to my blog. I've had a few expected ones and a few off the wall ones. The one I wasn't so sure about... "Mom Haircuts"
So I ask you... is this a mom haircut?
No, this isn't the picture that showed up under that search name but my haircuts are usually all the same since after having kids.
Sure, I used to have long, long hair that went past the middle of my back. But the only reason why I grew it that long was to be able to style it any way I wished for my wedding day.
And with the heat of living in San Diego I just couldn't bear to keep my long, long hair for too long.
I've decided that I need to define exactly what "Mom Haircuts" are so that I won't be placed in that category until I do, in fact, have a mom haircut. So I went to my trusted internet friends for their opinions. Here's what they had to say:

"When I think of a mom hair cut it's a chin length bob the curls under at the ends." - Sarah of East 9th Street
"Two of my blogging friends have it and it's the same one Sarah is talking about, lol. I'm growing mine out and it's going through a "mom cut" phase... :/ A little shorter than [the picture above]" - Mickey of A Helicopter Mom
"Crap. That's my default haircut." - Greta of How Was Your Day
"Well I have a shorter Mom cut, but I guess if I actually do it, it's not mine is longer in the front and layered in the back but if I don't style it I totally have a mom cut." - Amanda of the Frugal Greenish Mama
"Now the one I'm talking about has absolutely no layers - so it kinda looks like mushroom head" - Sarah of East 9th Street
And from there I think we have it!
A Mom Haircut, different from "mom hair" of course, can be easily defined as a short, straight bob with or without bangs!
