Today, George Gonzalez, Salon Owner of the George the Salon in Chicago has tips on how to cope with the post part partum hair blues! He has some great recommendations, some of which I've already done (I've gone closer to my natural brown), wear frequently (the pony tail) and have been thinking about doing (a long bob? Maybe...)
Bobs are the easiest and most stylish way to maintain a great look while pregnant or soon after giving birth. Bobs can be cut a few different ways in order to accentuate your best features or to minimize a fuller face during the later months of pregnancy. In general, choosing a shorter length will make life easier. If you prefer long hair, I recommend growing out some of your layers. Trying to keep the style as simple as possible is your best option. Some bangs or face framing will add some shape. It will also when your hair starts to grow back. After you stop nursing you will experience some hair loss, which is perfectly normal. Bangs help with that as well.
As for color, soon after receiving the great news that you are expecting, I recommend heading toward your natural color; as it is the easiest to maintain. You may not have the opportunity to get to the salon for months. If you are a blond, I recommend getting fewer highlights and staying away from base softeners. You may want to go natural all together.
For styling, high ponytails are easy and can be very stylish.
