Mom Hair

Just because you have entered into motherhood you do not need to sport the “Mom Bob” read this great article from the New York Times to learn more!

But first, this:


Mom Hair: It Exists. Now What to Do About It.

JUNE 21, 2016
Skin Deep
In fashion there are “mom jeans.” So, too, there is a counterpart in beauty: “mom hair.”

You’ve likely seen it at suburban malls: the longer-in-back, slightly–shorter-in-front bob that should read sleek but is inescapably frumpy.

And even the city-dwelling mom isn’t immune. Perhaps she has added her own twists like blunt bangs or extra layering, but the ’do still falls short of flattering.

“I see it all the time,” said Juan Carlos Maciques, a stylist at the Rita Hazan salon in Manhattan. “The first thing new moms want to do is cut their hair off. They’re feeling lousy about their bodies, and they just want to get some sense of self again. But, usually, to cut off your hair is a big mistake.”

It isn’t simply want of a new look that spurs many new mothers to the salon. Rather, they are experiencing real physical changes that can be terrifying. Often the mom bob starts as a convenient solution to hair loss after pregnancy.
“Anywhere from four to six months postpartum, women can start to experience shedding,” said Francesca Fusco, a dermatologist in Manhattan, adding that it’s because of a change in hormone levels. “It can be really scary because it may feel like it’ll never stop. But for the most part, the situation will correct itself. You just have to stick with it.”

Indeed, Mr. Maciques recommends that new mothers wait about a year before they make any drastic changes. “By then, you’ll know what you’ve got,” he said. “It’s not just your hair that’s changing. Your body is, too. You might not be at the weight you really want to be yet. And the truth is, long hair can be a little bit of a distraction. When you go short, you are more exposed. There’s less, literally, to hide behind.”
Kenna says that for Brooklyn moms, it’s not so much about rejecting the bob as it is about changing the details.

That’s partly why Katie Hintz-Zambrano, a co-founder of the website based in San Francisco, maintained her long locks.

Despite a hairline that receded for an entire year after giving birth (“I looked like a vampire,” she said), she steered clear of the salon. “For me, it was also about maintaining my identity,” she said, adding that she has always had long hair and felt most comfortable with that style.

Ms. Hintz-Zambrano did pick up a few styling tricks to cope with those more-difficult hair months. Through fellow mom friends, she learned the benefits of dry shampoo. “It offers a little bit of plumping,” she said.

When fine new growth started to sprout, Ms. Hintz-Zambrano used a Bumble and bumble cream to tame the “stick-ups, so I wouldn’t look totally crazy.”

There is also the Kate Middleton path: Keep the overall length but cut bangs to help camouflage fuzzy hairline regrowth. (The Duchess of Cambridge debuted a flop of long bangs after Princess Charlotte turned four months old.) Dr. Fusco also encourages good nutrition, plenty of protein and a hair-nail-skin vitamin during the regrowth process.

Otherwise, “stick to your usual routine,” she said. “You may not want to shampoo as much because you’re seeing so much hair in the drain, but it’s going to come out anyway.”

Regardless of the method, Mr. Maciques stressed that strategies can be plotted well ahead. Here’s when a stylist or colorist who knows your hair well can help you through the speed bumps.

“Ideally, you’d start planning while you’re still pregnant,” he said. “For hair color, you’ll want to go more natural by the third trimester. An ombré is a really nice way to address the fact you’re going to be having fewer hair appointments.”

Moreover, not all mom bobs deserve a bad rap. The above-the-shoulder cut can be a chic solution for certain hair types.

Svenja Parotat, a jewelry designer and former model in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, experienced only mild shedding, but after giving birth to her now 2-year-old son, she was bored of her long pin-straight hair.

“I didn’t know what to do with it, and it kept falling in my face,” she said. “And I wasn’t getting a lot of sleep, and the long hair was making me look more drained because it was pulling my face down.” She graduated to a lob before finally going for a blunt bob that just scraped her earlobes. “I felt fresher, and it would literally take me only 10 minutes to blow-dry,” Ms. Parotat said.
Kenna, the founder of the Kennaland salon in Greenpoint, said that for Brooklyn moms it’s not so much about rejecting the bob as it is about changing the details. (Ms. Parotat’s crisp, shorter style had clean lines, which read modern rather than mumsy.) “There’s quite a lot you can do with the jaw-length bob,” he said. “We’re encouraging moms to embrace their natural texture and get that wild, youthful feeling back again.”
Another trick that has resonated with some of Kenna’s clientele is cutting the bangs slightly too short. “It gives off this teenage feeling of irresponsibility and youthfulness,” he said.

And don’t minimize the impact of color. Kenna recalled a regular client who had always been a blonde. “She had a baby 11 months ago and felt she was looking washed out,” he said. One “very vibrant copper” hue later and “she was wearing her red lips again and feeling good,” he said.

“It’s just about getting the mom the little kick she needs.”

Going from Brown to Blonde, it ain’t easy…

As much as we would LOVE to be able to take a raven haired gal and make her into the perfect icy blonde in one two hour appointment, it just isn’t possible. Case in point; Khloe Kardashian, if you see below, Tracy Cunningham, her colorist took her from a deep mocha to  a pretty platinum over several months. In doing so she was able to maintain the integrity of her hair. Read the excerpt below for more info.


How long did it take to turn Khloé’s hair from brown to blonde? “Khloé is the lightest of the Kardashian sisters, and as a child, she had very light hair. Over the years, she went darker and darker. From the beginning of the transition—from her dark-brown hair to her current blonde—it took three to four months of gradual lightening.”

Can you explain each step of that process? “It was a process of adding highlights, then layering of highlights using Redken Flash Lift Lightener. Of course, one of my goals was to keep her hair healthy and lustrous throughout the process, so the steps were gradual. I used lots of Olaplex to restore the hair bonds and to make sure that when we had our ideal blonde color, her hair felt as great as it looked.”

What do you think colorists wish their clients who hand them inspiration photos of Khloé knew? “You have to be realistic and have patience and commitment. It takes time. It doesn’t happen overnight. Also, as a colorist, I will evaluate whether blonde is your color. Khloé is very lucky—she’s a beautiful brunette and a gorgeous blonde. Not everyone can pull that off.”

Direct Dye FYI

We have been loving all of the requests lately for fun, funky, fresh colors! There are however, major differences between coming in for your standard level 5 medium brown and wanting a rainbow mane.  So, to help you out if you are thinking about trying the latest hue, here are some helpful facts you need to know before you commit:

1. It can take HOURS!

Hair needs to be pre-lightened in order to accept the direct dyes. How light depends on the target color or level you are going for. Sometimes this can be done in one session, sometimes it takes multiple sessions. Other time factors to consider are whether you are just doing a peek-a-boo peice, an ombre, or an all over mane of strawberry red. Your preexisting level and hair density play a part as well. Someone with black hair wanting a pastel blue is going to take a lot longer than dirty blonde to get where you need to be, etc, etc…  And after, the hair is lightened, it has to be completely dried before the direct dye is applied, it is a process, bring a book, and a snack.

2. Direct Dyes Fade Fast

With colored hair, many people don’t realize how much maintenance it takes to keep it looking vibrant. Vibrant colors tend to fade very fast…usually after a few shampoos. To keep them looking vibrant, you need to redo it about every 2 weeks. More often if you like it super bright and vibrant. It evolves into a pastel tones as you wash so it’s also fun to see the quick changes. There are certain things you can do to prolong your color such as trying to wash with cold water, using sulfate free shampoo, keeping your hair protected from heat and sun, and/or using a color depositing shampoo & conditioner. However, even using these methods there is no guarantee that your color will be as fresh as it was on day 20 as it was on day 1.

3. There will be some amount of damage to your hair

Since it is necessary to pre-lighten to get vibrant color (unless of course your are naturally very blonde) there will be some stress to the hair shaft resulting in at least a small amount of damage. Again, this all depends on what you came in with; if your hair was already processed or are going from really dark to light you will get more damage than someone who has virgin hair and so on and so on. Make sure you start to deep condition well in advance of your first appointment to minimize this and plan on deep conditioning afterward to keep the integrity of your tresses in check.
