Oh definitely *not* a mom cut! It looks great curly (I like it better like that, too). Maybe you just need a day or so for the curls to settle after the initial weight off? It looks like a terrific cut. And you're eyes are fabulous!
I'm cracking up at your comment ("oh well, it's hair, it'll grow back"). I think with all the bad haircuts we curlies have had over the years (and your cut today is NOT one of them), we've developed hair detachment!
