Moms get a bad rap. We’re told we have frumpy clothes and old fashioned values and embarrass our kids when we try to use slang. But “mom hair” is by far the biggest slap in the face. I mean, bad hair days are bad enough…but now we just have bad hair? Come on.
“We’ve all heard of the ‘mom haircut.’ Traditionally, it’s extremely short, requires little maintenance, and we’ve all had its explicit uncoolness drilled into our heads for about as long as we’ve been alive.

Rather, it’s just that any hairstyle moms like is automatically uncool by association.”
