Mothers supposedly know best. And when it comes to etiquette, men, money, and the importance of lipstick, she's usually spot on. But would you ever let your mom dictate your hairstyle?
The folks over at Buzzfeed thought it would be fun to see exactly what would happen when three courageous women allowed their mothers to choose their 'do.

One mom insisted on something "high fashion, but cool and funky," another wanted the "sleek bob" that Katie Holmes rocked back in 2008, and the third mom dreamed of "Hollywood glamour." Not too shabby -- those descriptions don't sound too matronly or out-of-touch.
