Jessica AlbaJessica Alba has a fantastic sense of style ...

So it's no wonder I'm loving her new 'do.

And it's a fantastic look for moms on the go.

I love that this bob is short, but still long enough to pull back or put up if she wants.

That's important for a mom!

She can also get red carpet ready in about five minutes.

Want to know how to get this sleek, chic look for yourself?

Read on!

If you like this look, don't just rely on an explanation for your hairstylist. Instead, print out a photo of Alba and take it in with you to your hair appointment. Trust me, a picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to hair! I've taken in photos countless times and always gotten exactly what I wanted.

Once you've got the bob, I would advise using a squirt of Morrocanoil Styling Cream (Amazon, $24.15) after you wash your hair and before you dry it. I use this product every day and absolutely SWEAR by it -- particularly in winter, when hair is at its driest.

Next, invest in a high-quality, tourmaline flatiron if you don't have one already. They're pricier than their drugstore counterparts, but there's a huge difference in how your hair will look. Check out this post on The Stir for a great discussion on flatirons and which ones are best. Use your flatiron to smooth your hair and give it that silky look Alba's hair has in this photo. You can even use your flatiron to curl the ends under -- it's really easy!

I do a version of this look with my long hair and it takes about five minutes each day. With shorter hair like Alba's, it would take even less time.
