The Mom Chop

It was time.

I hoped I would be one of the ones who escaped post-pregnancy with normal hair, but that just wasn't the case. Every time I styled it the curl would fall out, or if it was straight it just looked blah. On top of that...that surge of hair growth from the pregnancy comes back to bite you. I wouldn't call it losing a ton of hair but it has definitely seemed more than what is usual. It was that point where something had to be done. Yuck. I'm so happy it fell in line with the season that I most prefer a shorter haircut- fall! I feel like once fall comes around I'm ready for a sense of polish versus the laid back summer look that I usually have. Polished in being from a more defined hair style and also more pulled together outfits. Whereas in the summer, my laid back look usually revolves around loose curls pulled in a pony/bun and sundresses and shorts. I was ready for the change.


Here is the before....


Whenever I cut my hair off I do get a little weary about being able to pull it up in a hurry. I pull my hair up a lot and the thought of not having that option makes me anxious. I think this is a pretty alternative for the gals with short hair, no?


What is your favorite hair style for fall?

Looks great! I love to chop my locks off every now and then - if even just to give it a fresh start!

Love it- looks great on you! I'm about to do the same thing- my hair looks awful right now. I can't get it to do anything and by lunch time its flat and gross.
