You asked me what mom-hair was. I thought I’d better show you the mom-hair rather than just talk about it, describing this or that cut. The ‘soccer mom hair’, as it was originally labeled by some hair stylists and compared to the haircut made popular by the entertainment mogul, Martha Stewart.
So when you think (soccer) mom hair, think of a medium haircut, right above the shoulders, layered and usually framing the face, with or without bangs. Straight, wavy or curly, the mom haircut is no more than a comfy haircut.
Low maintenance, chic, flattery and versatile, here’s the mom hair on yet another Vogue cover: Milou Van Groesen in Vogue Netherlands April 2013.
Photographed by Alique and styled by Mila Obando with this infamous mom hair styled by Ilham Mestour and makeup by Kathinka Gernant, the cover story pictorial revolves around plastic and it’s actually called ‘Plastic Touch’.
I’m sure you noticed on the Spring Summer 2013 catwalk that many key accessories were molded in transparent plastic, so it’s a justified pictorial, centered on one of the most fashionable materials used for this summer’s fashion. And on one of the most wearable&chic haircuts for this summer and more. (is it not?)
