Britney Spears' haircut and/or extension removal made the rounds yesterday thanks to her appearance in Oberhausen, Germany for the launch of her lingerie collection. Behold the debut look in all it's structure:

The hair, slightly longer than a bob and slight shorter than a lob, doesn't look terrible. It's just a fearsomely secure mom-bob. Straight. Sturdy. Blonde. She's a mom. It works. But the wavy look says "someone worked on my hair for two hours to get it looking this undone." It's cool mom hair. And wouldn't it be wonderful to believe Britney Spears is a cool mom?
