If your hair is even remotely long, new motherhood will demand you tie it back. There’s nothing worse than getting your hair caught in a newborn’s vice-like grip. My first baby pulled it out in handfuls, and then it started to fall out of its own volition.
A simple elastic band will work fine of course but you’ll be wasting the opportunity to exploit the current trend for scrunchies and hair bobbles.
Bet you wish you’d kept your Nineties “hairlooms” (sorry).
