Mama chop

Yesterday, I was a cliche. I got about six inches cut off my hair! I love my new long bob, but wouldn't you know it, my mil says "at leat it will grow back." Bold words to a sleep deprived woman brimming with crazy hormones.

Who else has gotten a big hair cut?

I realize this post really needs a picture, but I have not yet mastered tinypic on my phone.

  • No haircut here, but how rude! Better shorter and maintained than long and unkept like mine! I'm sure it's cute.

  • I'm planning to get "mom hair" soon. My LO loves to pull my hair while nursing, so it's got to go!

  • Please post a pic! I'm SO tired of my sad ponytail that I wear everyday, but not brave enough yet to cut it. i need something more low maintenance that wont be so time consuming to dry and style. But at other times I love the length to curl. Torn!

    Good job! I bet you feel great with a fresh, new haircut. I've had chin length hair for a few years and I love it.

  • No haircut yet, but I really need one. I did get a little over 10 inches cut while I was pregnant. I used to grow my hair out for about two years then chop it and donate it. I did that 5-6 times. I love the feeling right after I've chopped it. It feels so light!

  • i actually did chop my hair last Monday.  I went from below-the-shoulders, dark brown and curly to a veeeery short pixie-cut like Halle Berry, Alyssa Milano and Emma Watson. If I can figure it out, I'll post a pic. 

    I always encourage short hair! Good for you :)  I go through cycles: nice, long cutly hair throughout the winter, then I chop it just about every summer.  It's sort of liberating...somehow.  I mean, it's just hair :)

    Chopped mine off last week. It was taking too long to dry and not looking very cute. I am much happier now!

    This is me. My hair has been out of a pony MAYBE 12 hours since she was born. I feel like I'm gonna have a perm ponytail holder indent soon.

  • I had very long hair think Zooey deschanel hair/bangs. But in October I got a pixy cut. I love how the pixie looks but the upkeep is way too much so I'm growing it out. It is in a terrible stage.

    I cut off 11 inches the week I was due and donated it to locks of love. I couldn't be happier!! I was so thrilled to have easily manageable hair while I was at the hospital. And even now it takes less time to clean, it looks healthier, etc..

    I'm definitely due for a cut, but what I really need is an eyebrow wax.  Yikes!

    Don't you love it when MILs make passive-aggressive remarks like that? :)

  • I just got a post birth hair makeover today. Not a big difference really, but got it colored closer to my natural color with lighter highlights. I've never had subtle highlights before. For a while a few years ago, before I was even married, I had chunky light blonde highlights on dark brown hair. Now the highlights are much more conservative, subtle, so I guess that's more mother-ish?

  • lol I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow!  It'll definitely be quite a few inches too.  Tired of it being in my face and tired of Ethan yanking it out!  Can't wait to get it cut!  DH can't either because he keeps rolling into a pile of hair at night.

    Rude MIL's can suck it.
