Mom Haircuts

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

"I really really really love this girl's hair." - Greta of How Was Your Day

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! 

What's your definition of a Mom Haircut? Do you have one? Is it really a Mom Haircut?

I'm not a mom yet but I think most mom's stick with easier to fix / style haircuts because they are so busy and always on the go so they need something easy to style / fix. :) I used to have really long hair too and I really miss it but I don't have the patience for how awful it looks while it's growing out to let it grow back out right now, lol..

I think a mom haircut is something that is cute, but easy to maintain without a lot of product

Sadly my mom hair cut is a pony tail and I hate it. I want something else, anything else insanely bad.

My hair is past shoulder length so I don't think it qualifies as a mom haircut but even so I think some of the mom haircuts are very cute!

My mom haircut is a ponytail. Pretty pathetic I must say.
