i used to think of “mom hair” as a sort of short, choppity bob, kind of like something kate+eight would do. my hair doesn’t do straight, so my version of mom hair is long, wavy, with layers i haven’t kept up with, and my roots showing, and way way way too much voluminous poofiness that needs to be taken care of before i return to the real world from planet baby.
since few of my clothes fit except for maternity clothes which of course i don’t want to spend another second in, let alone another month or two until i shrink down a little bit more, i thought, well, hey, at least maybe i can have good hair!
i think this is what i want (her style from silver linings playbook), except in dark auburn, not black. i’ve pretty much had this haircut before–long, wavy, with layers–but i haven’t had bangs in a long time. i know for sure i don’t want bangs that are a lot of upkeep but those bangs don’t look like so very much upkeep, especially if i just let them stay wavy with the rest of my hair instead of straightening them out…? well bryan and my sister are telling me that i’ll rue the day i cut bangs again, but i might do it anyway–i need to feel a little spiffed up!
