5 Short Hair Tips for New Moms

Learn five tips on cutting hair short after a baby from professional stylist Joy La Rosa in this Howcast short hair tutorial for women.


So I wanted to share a couple of tips for new moms. One of the biggest questions I get after women have babies is should they cut their hair short. I think there are lots of factors that would say if you should cut your hair short.

First being, a lot of women after pregnancy experience a little bit of hair loss. So if you've lost a little bit of hair and your hair seems a little bit finer or a little bit more damaged looking, I think shortening up your hair is a great way to kind of help that out.

The number one place that moms tend to notice hairloss is right around the hairline. So, if you've noticed that you're a little bit thinner through there. It's a great opportunity to cut some bangs in there and let that hair kind of grow down. It will grow down. Eventually.

Consider the cut that you would choose if you're really going to have time to style it. Sometimes, in the very beginning especially; it's almost better to leave the hair longer, if you find it easier to style your hair by just putting it up. It can go both ways.

So if you find that you're frustrated with yourself that you don't have a style because you're constantly putting your hair up, that might be a sign that you need to go for a shorter cut.

There are lots of factors, so don't feel pressured in any which way. There is no right or wrong answer. I think that it's your right or wrong answer that you need to find.

So those are some tips for new moms about cutting your hair short.
