15 Best Haircuts for Moms
1. Pixie Perfection
The pixie cut is timeless and versatile, making it an excellent choice for busy moms. It’s low-maintenance and exudes confidence. A little product can add texture and lift, and just because you have short hair does not mean it needs to be boring or lack style. You can rock some pretty awesome short hair looks, and pixie might be one of them.
Styling Tip: Enhance the pixie with a subtle side part or swept-back bangs for a chic look.
2. Effortless Bob
The bob is a classic mom haircut that’s never out of style. It’s easy to manage and offers endless styling possibilities. A bob can be worn sleek or with some beach waves for a relaxed look. A bob is a short hair with a long hair feel (or vice-versa), which means you get somewhat long hair, but with the short hair low maintenance. Go the extra mile and get a balayage and have that cool hair look you deserve!
Styling Tip: Use a flat iron for a polished bob for a date night or a curling wand for beachy waves.
3. Shaggy Layers
Want to feel like a rock star without the life on tour? Shaggy layers add texture and movement to your hair, a style that will definitely be the coolest mom at school pick up. Think of Joan Jett and Farrah Fawcett, and know that some of us would have killed for that hair! But don’t think this rebellious looking haircut is only for nostalgia! Taylor Swift and Zendaya have also been sporting the look recently which just proves it’s a classic and for all hair types! This versatile cut can be worn short or long and complements different face shapes. It’s effortlessly stylish.
Styling Tip: Embrace the natural texture of your hair for a carefree shaggy look.
4. Modern Lob
The lob (long bob) is a popular choice for moms. It offers the elegance of a longer style while maintaining the ease of a bob. If a traditional bob feels too short, fear not. Just let your stylist know you need more length so you have more hair left to play with different looks of the same hair. Problem solved. Wear ir straight, or with some salt water for some true beach waves. This is another classic that everyone loves. A center part is the trend, but if you want to be adventurous, you can part your hair on the side.
Styling Tip: Use a texturizing spray for that “undone” effect.
5. Asymmetrical Cut
Asymmetrical haircuts are edgy and chic. They add drama to your look without much effort. We all remember “Kate Plus 8” amazing hair back in the day, and while that specific style might not be in demand, other variations of it have never left. If you’re feeling bold add some bright color to it (like purple) for some cool punk rock look to it. An asymmetrical bob can be paired with bangs or kept sleek. The best way to wear this look is with shorter hair so it’s more visible, unless of course, you are a rule breaker!
Styling Tip: Experiment with various parting options for a fresh style.
6. Short and Sassy
A short and sassy haircut is perfect for moms who want a low-maintenance yet stylish look. The name can be a little vague and leave room for interpretation. And that’s because the “sassy” part is really what makes you feel like a boss! Short asymmetrical can be sassy, so can pixie, or even a bob. This cut is to bring out your sassy self on a daily basis, so you can show off your look without spending hours getting ready. It’s youthful and exudes confidence.
Styling Tip: Use a volumizing mousse to add body to your hair.
7. Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs are a trendy way to frame your face and add a touch of Bohemian charm. It’s a dream come true for anyone who likes to feel like a celebrity on the red carpet (and we all do). And since we’re in the celebrity topic, no one sported a betterer set of curtain bangs and Kim Kardashian. Her hair has changed a lot since then, but so many of us would swoon over her hair. Since the curtain bangs would be the only part you actually have to style, it also means it’s a quick fix in the morning, which can last all day with some hairspray. They can be worn with different lengths and styles.
Styling Tip: Use a flat iron or curling wand to give your curtain bangs a gentle curve.
8. Long Layers
Long layers add movement and dimension to your hair. They’re flattering and versatile, and it’s especially useful if you have a lot of hair, as it make it easier to brush, wash and blowdry.. If you want even more depth add some highlights like balayage for a low maintenance style since you don’t have to touch the roots until like…ever! Layers can be worn with a center or side part.
Styling Tip: Use a leave-in conditioner to keep long layers soft and manageable.
For a bold and trendy look, consider an undercut. The undercut can be as subtle or dramatic as you like, and it can be hidden when you want. This is the ideal pinch of boldness if you always keep your hair short. Why? Because if you decide to change it up, it doesn’t take as long to grow and catch up with the rest of your hair length. Fair warning though: all eyes will be on you during PTA meetings though (in the best way possible)!
Styling Tip: Experiment with patterns or designs for a personalized touch.
10. Side-Swept Pixie
Not all Pixies are created equal. A side-swept pixie adds a playful element to a classic cut. It’s easy to style and can be changed up for different occasions, you can add a bright color, you can add highlights, you can add texture or just wear it straight. The options are endless. It’s such an easy to maintain look that you might find yourself not changing away from this style for a long time.
Styling Tip: Use a texturizing paste for a pixie, side-swept look.
11. Mohawk Chic
This is definitely boldness on a whole other level. A Mohawk-inspired cut offers an edgy and confident style, and shows a side of you that tells others not to mess with this mama. Go the extra mile and ask your style on your next visit to add some fun patterns or design to the undercut part. You can keep the sides shorter for a milder look or go bold with a full Mohawk. Inside tip: curious but not fully onboard with this drastic style? French braid the sides of your hair for a “faux” mohawk so you can try it out without the cut!
Styling Tip: add patterns or designs to the undercut part of the hair.
12. Tousled Waves
Tousled waves add a touch of romance to your look. Whether you have a short or long haircut, you can create soft waves for a relaxed style. Tousled waves are like beach waves without the messy finish. So your hair will look more “done”, than beach style which is supposed to make me relaxed salty hair. Tousled will give you that more elegant feel, ready for a night out sans kids that you so well deserve!
Styling Tip: Use a curling iron to create loose, beachy waves.
13. French Bob
The French bob is a chic and timeless choice. It’s shorter in the back and longer in the front very slightly, offering a stylish and low-maintenance option. It’s also shorter than the regular bob, and so so cute. If you’re ready to experiment with shorter hair that falls along your jawline, French bob might just be what you need. Add some good old hair mousse for some texture.
Styling Tip: Pair your French bob with a beret for a touch of Parisian flair.
15. Classic Long Hair
Classic long hair is always in style. It’s versatile and can be dressed up or down for various occasions. There’s a reason this timeless look made this list: long hair can be transformed into so many different things, from braids, to waves, to curls, to updos, to straight, to fake mohawk. If you happen to have long hair and are not ready to cut inches away, then it’s time to get creative with your styling, and girl you got so many options!
Styling Tip: Use a heat protectant spray before using styling tools.
15. Curly bob
If you have naturally curly hair and are tired of straightening it, then it’s time to embrace your roots! A curly bob will give you a break on maintenance because it’s shorter, and it can make you look youthful. There are several great products in the market today that can make your curls shine, and no heating tools are required, which would give you hair a much needed break from damaging heat!
Styling Tip: Use a texturizing spray to add grip and texture to your locks
