NSM_MS2W Whether you've recently welcomed your little bundle of joy (and you're just emerging from the trenches of round-the-clock feeds and not knowing day from night - well done you BTW), or you're just a mama looking for a little pick-me-up, a trip to the hairdresser always helps you feel alive again.

There's no denying having babies can wreak havoc on your locks.

Either they go limp from the moment you see that plus sign on the pregnancy test, or you're in the camp who managed to enjoy the luscious "pregnancy locks" only to have them wither and die once your baby arrived. Or you're well past the newborn stage and just simply a member of the "who the f@&k has time to look after your hair" camp. Whichever one it is, sometimes a trip to the hairdresser can help to breathe new life into us. (That said is it the hair or those few sweet hours to yourself that does it...?)

This week mum-of-three Jessica Alba took to Instagram to share her new look, "It feels sooo good to shed the pregnancy hair. Whaddaya think?" she wrote alongside a before and after snap.

So if you're simply looking for a blow-dry to wash that hair that's become permanently moulded into that top-knot or you decide it's time for an all-out change, who better to look to than other celebrity mums for a bit of hairspo. Whether they've gone the full chop, hit up the colourist up or simply had it styled (yeah, yeah we know they have stylists on speed dial but still), here are some looks to bookmark for your next visit to the hairdresser:
