Just in case being a mom wasn't hard enough work, now mothers everywhere have to deal with writers who find it necessary to criticize their "mom hair."
Or, as Bee Shapiro from The New York Times calls it, "the longer-in-back, slightly-shorter-in-front bob that should read sleek but is inescapably frumpy." Shapiro built an entire article around bashing this particular haircut, interspersing jabs with quotes from stylists suggesting that this hairdo is a "horrible mistake" and that women really ought to plan out their future haircuts during their pregnancy.

Unsurprisingly, hard-working and dedicated moms everywhere were not pleased when they heard this. So they decided to fire back with sarcasm and awesome snapshots of them proudly flaunting their own "mom hair."
Here are some of the best responses so far:
