Here are some hair tips for pregnant women so that they look most beautiful during pregnancy:
1) Avoid dramatic change.  This means avoid going very short or very long with existing or new hairstyles. A pregnant women's face shape and body proportions will obviously change during pregnancy. Excessively short or long hairstyles can make the face look fuller and emphasize the changing body shape.
Hair is best worn chin- to shoulder-length with a long bang and soft lines on the side to help minimize and to disguise any pregnancy weight.

2) Part hair off to the side, instead of in the middle. This is usually the most flattering and slimming style for women who are pregnant.

3) Cut hair in long layers to give added height and body at the root of your hair. Use a styling product such as a root lift or body-building spray.

4) Keep hair in a loose high ponytail or in a messy up-'do. If a few tendrils fall, don't fret. The height and wisp around your face will instantly help you look thinner.

5) Should you color your hair during pregnancy?

This is the million-dollar question. Talk to her doctor and ask his opinion. The doctors make the rules. Make sure your doctor is aware of the type of color you are planning.
Most women wait out their first trimester and then rush to make an appointment. Talk to your hair colorist about alternative means of coloring your hair.
You can choose a temporary color, such as a crayon, mascara wand or hair-color powder, in which the results will only last one shampoo.
If you make your hair lighter, highlight your hair using foils. This color technique will prevent any hair color from touching your scalp. Obviously, by following these guidelines, your hair will end up being closer to its natural hue until you can resume your normal routine.

6) Try a zigzag part. Straight parts will showcase your roots, especially if you have straight hair.

A zigzag part will break up the line of demarcation and help make your roots less obvious. If you have natural curls or waves, let them show. They will add a natural lift and will disguise your new growth.

7) Avoid severe or slicked-back hairstyles because they will emphasis roots.

Loose, soft styles will help your hair to grow out gracefully until you can color it again.
