Are you a mom who wants to look stylish while keeping up with your busy schedule? A modern mom cut may be just what you need. We spoke with Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist, to get her expert advice on choosing the right cut for your face shape, hair type, and lifestyle.

Choosing the Right Cut for Your Face Shape

When it comes to modern mom cuts, Miller’s go-to recommendation is the long bob, also known as the “lob.” “It’s a versatile cut that works well for many face shapes and hair textures,” she says. Miller suggests asking your stylist for a lob with soft layers to add dimension and movement. If you have thick hair, consider adding layers to reduce bulk. For fine hair, keep the layers minimal to maintain fullness.

Navigating Your Hair Type and Texture

Miller emphasizes the importance of communicating openly with your stylist. Be clear about your hair’s natural texture, thickness, and any problem areas. For thin or fine hair, she recommends light layers to add volume. For thick or curly hair, opt for long layers to control the shape and reduce bulk. And if you have wavy hair, go for a cut that encourages your waves to shine.
