I cut it all off, and DS would still manage to get a handful of hair to pull. OUCH! Haircut fail. haha Chop it if you like it short and want to wear it that way. But, IMO, there’s no reason to chop it all off if you don’t want to.

I wear my hair in a low side braid pretty much every day. It’s really long. I like this hairstyle because I can do it while it’s wet! Not going to lie, this was my go-to style even before DD. I hope I never have to get a mom cut!

I told my hairstylist that if I EVER came in and asked her to chop off my hair after I had my son, not to do it! To tell me no! lol I rock a high bun with around my baby boy

howtobeawife:  Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you can’t have whatever hairstyle you want. I’m a mom but I’m also still a woman that likes to look and feel pretty. I’m not going to stop spending time on myself just because I’m a mom.

I did go much shorter but then let it grow back out and now back to shorter not because I am a mom because I wanted to.  I agree with pp just because your a mom doesn’t mean you have to chop the hair

I am due in 3.5wks and I have no plans to chop my hair off and morph into a ‘mom.’  I think that is my nightmare actually, that I’ll chop it off into a “practical, wash and go style” and wear crocs for the rest of my life LOL I want to be just as fabulous after baby as I was before I got pregnant!

I only changed my hair after having DD because I couldn’t stand the post-partum hair loss. I have long hair, so when it started shedding, it was a nightmare, so I got a hawt bob-styled ‘do until the hair loss stopped, then I went back to my usual long, blonde locks.

I’m really going to try to hold out and not chop my hair off this time around and deal with the shedding… it’ll be  a challenge though!

I kept my long hair and honestly, I never even considered chopping my hair off. I didn’t wear it in a ponytail any more or less than I did prior to having my son. When my hair was down, I just made sure that it was flipped behind my shoulder. My hair has stayed somewhere between my shoulder blade and my butt since during the past 6 years since my son has been born.  I’m sure he grabbed a handful from time to time but truthfully, I don’t remember any issues with it.

Maybe it’s just your circle. Now that I’m thinking back, I don’t know anyone who has had a major hair cut or drastically changed their style based on whether or not their baby would mess with it.

howtobeawife:  I think that depends on how long  your current hairstyle takes you and how long you’re willing to work with your hair after baby is born. I was creative and I would put my son in the baby wrap around my chest and I would take my time doing my hair. Or I would sit him in his seat next to me and he would just chill while I still did my normal beauty routine. I wasn’t willing to give up on looking like myself. I cut out a few steps that were really just fluff and got some better products that had multiple purposes to cut a little time. But I was still very much into making myself up like I normally woul dhave. And no matter the length of my hair it was always possible to throw on a cute headband (like the stretchy ones) or do a messy bun.

howtobeawife:  Honestly I think wardrobe is more important than hair. that’s just a side note lol. I had more trouble dressing myself than anything. Mostly because most of my clothes weren’t appropriate for someone who had to carry a baby around or be putting a carseat in and out of a car, not to mention the fact that my son puked on a lot of my stuff so some of the materials just weren’t really doable. I needed easily washable things. I found that I needed to simplify that more than things like my hair and make up. I used to really accessorize and be really detailed with my outfits and I found that after I had my son I just needed to have clothes that still looked neat and put together and dare I say, fashion forward, but that didn’t require too much effort and were comfortable. The worst thing was to be trying to do something with my son and be uncomfortable. I invested in some really great jeans, cami’s for layering, some fitted tshirts that were an easy go to option, good gym shoes that weren’t hideously ugly, easy slip on shoes that could be worn with jeans or dresses, some headbands that were diffeent and interesting so that if I was really in a crunch I could just put on a black fitted vneck tee, nice jeans, flats and a headband that would make it look like I tried to accessorize when really it’s just all I had time for that day lol. I was a planner too so I worried about this stuff as well. So that’s my advice. 🙂

Now that I have babbled on and on…. I’ll leave it at that.
