The new "mom" haircut

I have been kidding myself for years -- I don't look good with long hair. I would look really good with long hair if I dropped 50 lbs but that's a whole other post. I feeding a kid people! It's not time for weight loss yet. The only time I looked good was when I was pregnant and my hair got thicker and shinier.

So my hair is baby fine. Yes, fine as a newborn baby's hairs on it's head. My child has thicker hair than I have. Plus, I was losing it in clumpfuls due to the lack of pregnancy hormones.

So I call up my hair stylist, Laura Belle Hansen. I told her "find me a haircut that is 1) easy to fix 2)short 3) doesn't make me look like a mom.

I had an idea of what I wanted. I was going to copy my co-worker Starla's hair do. Lucky for me, Starla goes to my hair dresser so I didn't have much explaining to do.

So this is what I ended up with:





This haircut is easy. Add product, brush forward and dry. Done in minutes! And, it's super cute to boot! So, if you live in Bend and need an awesome stylist -- Laura Belle is your gal!

I second the props to Laura Belle!

I, for one, am a big fan of short hair, and your cut is very flattering. You look great! And it seems like the cut will be easy to style, too. Always a bonus!

I super-love your hair!!! I wish the photos were in color so I could see your highlights.

I should post a photo of my hair right now. I can't believe I'm already getting silver strands near my temples. Grrrrr....

Super cute, Shannon! Definitely not a soccer mom cut. Ben's got a hip mommy.
