For the first year of child rearing, it’s important to create a soft and simple hairstyle that will allow you to spend more time with your baby and less time styling your hair. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you must chop off your long locks. There are many easy ways that you can keep hair that is shoulder length or longer off your face — and away from baby’s eager fingers!
If you decide to keep your hair long, I recommend light layers around the face to create movement and open your eyes and cheekbones. A blunt cut can be very heavy and more difficult to manage. Once you have the right cut, hair accessories are the key to low-maintenance long hair. Experiment with various clips and barrettes until you find a look that works for you. Try twisting your hair up or pull it back in an elegant and easy chignon.Of course, after giving birth, many women do have the urge to just “shed it all” — both the extra weight and their hair. Some new moms are not only looking for a more manageable style but also want a different look to complement their new identity as a mother. For women who fall into this category, I usually take the hair up to chin length and use long layers to create movement around the face and in the back. This brings a softer look to the traditional bob. I’ve even had a few daring new moms in my salon who have opted for a pixie-style short cut. It’s a drastic change from long hair, but very stylish and easy to maintain.
