If you’ve ever uttered the words “graduated bob” before, then you just might be a mom. I promise you I am not here to rag on the mom haircut, but I am here to share my objective observations.

Many, many of my friends have subtly changed their hairstyles after popping a baby out of their lady parts. Now, I assume that these friends didn’t check out of the hospital and go directly to the Cuttin’ Corral to get a shoulder-length, layered do that is easy to style with a baby under one arm. But as the postpartum months passed, the hair got shorter.

The mom haircut is a sure sign that you’re a grown-up lady without much time to get ready in the morning. But as you look a little closer, you’ll see that the mom cut isn’t all business—it normally has highlights or lowlights or feathering or some kind of fancy bangs that you can style for a special anniversary date night once a year. Now it all makes sense.

You might be a mom if you’ve rocked one of these stylish cuts in the carpool lane before:
