This haircut is edgy and awesome! It’s commonly cut shortest right at the shoulder, while the other side measures 2-3 inches past, but it can be modified longer and have the same modern, cool effect. You can personalize this more by adding a fun peek-a-boo color beneath or dye it all one rich color and just box dye your roots at home when they grow in. This cut can still be long enough to fit a pony tail or sweep behind the ear and these two dying options insure you won’t need to be at the salon frequently to maintain your color.
Long Hair Ombre or Balayage
This popular celebrity look is for those who cherish their length and want to look different without compromising it with a haircut. Because your ends are bleached to look sun kissed and your roots go untouched, this type of coloring needs virtually no salon maintenance at all once it’s done. Many have had success doing it themselves with thorough YouTube tutorials and specifically Revlon’s Frost ‘N Glow kits. It’s a low risk change that reflects a sunny, fun, youthful mom even if you’ve been cooped up during your maternity leave.
It’s about that time, the 90s will be coming back around the corner. The Rachel was made famous by Jennifer Aniston’s character on the hit show Friends. It’s a sweeping bang, layered haircut that frames the face and adds a lot of body to your hair, especially when teased with a cute headband or when you “blow out” with a hairdryer and round brush. Style it many ways or not at all! It can convey sophistication and maturity, if that’s the look you’re going for. Young it up with highlights!
Pink for a girl or blue for a boy, take advantage of this low maintenance trend and celebrate your new bundle with this hairstyle! On both brunettes (bleach first) or blondes, a pale color “dipped” at the ends has been all the rage recently and many have been successful attempting this at home, like the balayage style. If you can’t commit or want to try it first, look for a good semi-permanent dye or try hair chalk.
