Best and Worst Mom haircuts

It almost seems like a rite of passage: become a mom; get a bad "mom cut." You know the one - the short hairstyle that's way too short and not flattering for your face shape. The one you got on an "I need a change!" whim.

Hey, we get it. You're suddenly busier than you've ever been, which means zero time to create polished, bombshell waves. So what do you do? You tell your stylist to chop it all off and give you a short cut that's a cinch to wash and go.

The problem is that "wash and wear" short hair can be really tough to pull off.  The secret is getting a short hairstyle that works with your hair's natural texture.It's also important to get a cut that really works with your face shape.

Shorter cuts are easier to manage if you find the perfect style for your face shape.

Maybe that's the excuse for Kate Gosselin's reverse mulletor Katherine Heigl's granny bob?

Thankfully, some moms have sailed through new mommyhood without getting the prerequisite awful short haircut. Just look at Reese Witherspoon's effortless layers, and Victoria Beckam's chic bob. Short hairstyles don't get much better than these.
