There are many unexpected changes in your body after having a baby. Postpartum hair loss is unfortunately one of them. Your hair may also become thinner, frizzier oilier, or drier than usual due to pregnancy hormones. The excessive shedding and changes in hair texture give many moms the urge to cut it all off.

If you’re struggling with your hair and looking for ways to make styling easier and restore confidence, a trip to your hairstylist is recommended. The best postpartum haircut is one that works for your lifestyle. If you like to wear it up in a mom bun all the time, cutting it all off may not work for you.

Here are the most popular postpartum hair styles to increase the ease, decrease the look of thinning hair and cover up those baby hairs:

- Pixie Cut: Hello ease!

- Long Bobs: Short, but able to put up in a pony

- Blunt Cuts: Gives the illusion of thickness

- Bangs: Great for covering up patchy spots

Make sure to share details with your stylist about your hair texture, styling routine, how you like to wear your hair, and challenges you’re facing since having a baby. Take caution with wearing your hair in tight ponytails or buns as this may lead to more hair shedding. Scalp massages and supplements can also promote thicker and healthier hair regrowth.
