You may have heard of mom jeans, mom voice, but have you heard of the mom bob? It’s a relatively new term that MAY describe my recent haircut. What do you think?
With all of this uncharacteristically hot weather in Wisconsin, I wanted a shorter haircut. My hair was getting longer, but for the most part has been shorter than shoulder length because that’s what my fine, poker straight hair can tolerate. I told my hair stylist that I wanted to go shorter and indicated the length that I wanted. I also explained that I wasn’t sure if it should be all one length, or if we should angle it. Ultimately we went for one length, and I left thinking, “Okay, I can work with this.”
My hair stylist also mentioned very casually that another client comes in and requests the “mom bob.” Oh great – now I have a mom bob too. That’s exactly what I wanted (insert sarcasm here).
Little did I know that I would be trimming stray bangs the next day, and looking critically at my new “do” in the mirror, thinking, “What have I done?” My bangs were crooked, and the cut was so blunt and plain looking. Even a few days later, I still feel a little disappointed, so I made an appointment to have it repaired this week.
Ugh…have you ever had your hair style labeled as a mom bob or mom hair? How do you address a bad haircut with your stylist? If she can’t fix it to my liking, do I make the difficult switch? Why does switching hair stylists feel like a break-up?!
Here are some past pictures of my hair in better days:
