A Hair Mom’s Guide to Layered Bangs and Fringes
A hair mom is a hair-raising thing. It’s short-ish, usually bob-esque and a little layered — it’s practical yet not very edgy.
It’s a term that’s rooted in sexism, but it also has a certain utilitarian quality to it that makes it a reassuring symbol. And it’s not just a white woman’s hairstyle, either.
Bangs (North American English) or fringe (British English) are strands of hair that fall over the scalp’s front hairline. They can range in length and style, from straight to ragged.
Oftentimes, bangs can make or break a haircut. That’s why it’s crucial to choose the right kind for your face shape and personal style.
You’ll want to choose a bang that works with your face shape, like curtain bangs, bottleneck bangs or a very swoopy fringe. These types of bangs will help balance out your features and frame them beautifully.
Keep your bangs in check by brushing them with a wide-tooth comb and letting them dry naturally. Alternatively, you can spritz them with a hair spray to keep them in place.
Layers are a great way to make your hair stand out and give it more movement. But they are not right for every type of hair, and you need to pay attention to the specifics before you can find the best layered cut for your tresses.
The perfect layered look is the result of a collaboration between the hair stylist and your personal taste and style. Luckily, there are many different layered cuts to choose from, and it is not hard to find a hairstyle that will suit your personality and face shape.
To get the best results from your layered cut, first decide on the length of the layers you want to go with. Longer layers will be the most flattering, but you should also consider what part of your face you’d like to accentuate with your new do.
Whether you’re a new mom or an experienced one, your hair will change texture for a few reasons. Genetics, aging, stress and hormones all play a role in your hair’s changes. Especially when you’re in a postpartum period, your hair can go through a dramatic shift.
It’s a complicated thing to figure out, but we know that your hair’s texture is an amalgam of many genes and alleles. Each parent provides one allele per gene, and the interaction of these alleles determines what your hair will look like. For example, your hair might be wavy, curly or straight, depending on what version of the trichohyalin (TCHH) gene you have. TCHH is responsible for tightening your hair fibers and pulling them toward your scalp. It also controls how much red pigment is produced and where it’s placed on your hair. So if your parents both have a TCHH allele, your child’s hair will probably be curly.
One of the more difficult parts of a successful mom hairstyling project is choosing just the right length for your baby’s head. This is especially true if you have multiple children, as each child’s length will be slightly different from the next. In addition to the length of your tresses, you’ll also need to consider the shape and texture of your baby’s strands. Luckily, you’ll find an abundance of tips and tricks to help you decide on the best cut for your baby’s needs. It can be a tricky business, but a little patience and planning will go a long way to a happy, healthy, and stylish future parent.
