hair thursday makeover 78
Hey, it’s Jen!
Natural color is dirty blonde/light brown
Oily condition, must wash every day
Needs a relatively low-maintenance hairstyle
Uses no product
Lots of ponytails
From Jen’s email:
I don’t want to spend more than 15 minutes on my hair, because I simply don’t have that much time to devote to it now that I’m a working mom. If I’m going to keep growing it out, I’d like to be able to pull it back in a ponytail, and I’d like to avoid blunt bangs. Side-swept bangs/layers are OK, however. People have told me I look great with short hair, but my husband loves my hair long. I’m just so … tired.
Oh, girl. I feel you on the tired thing. And did I mention that Jen’s 9-month-old just LOVES to pull her hair by the fistfuls? No wonder she dons ponytails on most occasions.
Jen has successfully rocked several different looks in the past.
Hmmm. First things first. I really like the shorter looks on Jen. Her long brown hair looks lovely, but when I envision her wearing it in a ponytail 75% of the time, I just think she could become really bored with it. She looks downright sexy with cuts shown in the middle and on the right. I don’t think she could go wrong if she revisited either of those styles, but I feel like I’m cheating her without adding some other options into the mix. (It’s going to be hard, though. I love those styles on her!)
What about these options?

Jenna Elfman‘s short, side-parted hairstyle has swoopy bangs and delicate volume at the root. I think this would look great on Jen, although it would be the higher maintenance of the two options. (Yet, with Jen’s naturally straight hair, this style wouldn’t take as much time as some others.)
Josie Bissett‘s low-maintenance look flaunts side-swept fringe and a piecey texture all over. This cut is the best option for what Jen is looking for in a hairstyle (no maintenance, much shorter, toddler-friendly), but I’m telling you, I still love her previous short cut too.
Have I confused you yet? Because I totally am.
Help Jen. (And me!) Which option do you think would fit best into her working mom lifestyle?
