The candid, give no f*cks celebrity mum we never knew we needed, Ashley Graham is forever serving up new motherhood truths. Whether she's posting Instagram selfies of her breastfeeding her son Isaac, calling out post-baby weight loss as 'BS' , or even sharing images of herself mid-birth, Graham is here to dispel the glamorous facade of becoming a mum and celebrate the realities, in all their lumps, bumps and stretch marks.

Now, the new mum is seeking to open up the conversation about post-partum hair loss and regrowth.

Graham took to Instagram to post a barefaced selfie showing off her post-baby hair growth. In the relatable photo, Graham's long brown hair is pulled back in a high bun to reveal a mini fringe of post-partum hair regrowth.

As always, the model brought her sense of humour and lightheartedness to the conversation, comparing her new tufty fringe to the Bond villain Elvis in Quantum of Solace.

The 33-year-old embraced her 'baby bangs' with a stunning smile and captioned the post: 'i may not be a bond girl but i can be a bond villain (postpartum baby hairs come through!!!) [isc]'.

As excited as we were about the prospect of a celebrity rocking a new micro fringe, we're way more interested in a woman using her platform to open up a conversation that's not often spoken about by celebrities.

Graham has previously been just as open about topics of pregnancy and motherhood often considered 'taboo'.

'My relationship with my body has definitely shifted since becoming a mum,' Graham told ELLE earlier this year. 'I mean, when I was pregnant it wasn’t until my third trimester that I actually started liking my bump and how my body was changing.

'In the last few weeks I got stretch marks on my lower belly and I was like "Omg I got stretch marks!", but now I just embrace them because I grew a perfect little boy and those stretch marks are just a reminder of the journey that I went on and how I’m always going to be a mother now. My body will forever be marked in a great way of this journey.'
