This can be explained by the fact that mothers usually have less time to spend on their appearance than other women. Since the makers of a show probably don't want to make their characters ugly, one way to demonstrate motherhood is to give her a low-maintenance hairstyle. [[{{Housewife}} Housewives]] (most likely to be the mothers of young children) also need a hairstyle that's going to stay out of the way when they're doing housework and cleaning up. This may or may not come with an apron to further emphasize their motherhood. Since the hair is only tied up loosely, it creates a soft, relaxed, gentle appearance. Putting the hair over the shoulder allows you to see her hairstyle from the front, while also providing a slight element of FashionableAsymmetry.

FashionableAsymmetry. Braiding the hair that way is also faster and easier than braiding it behind one's head, contributing to the low maintenance angle.

* [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Sella]] wears her hair like this (with apron and fluffy slippers!) in ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya''. She's Ilya's caretaker in the original VN as well, but since ''kaleid liner'' starts off in a much more normal domestic setting, she's ditched the hair-concealing uniform and looks like a standard anime mom, aside from the [[OurHomunculiAreDifferent pseudo-albinism]].

* Louise in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingSword'', who took care of her husband's apprentice Erk from childhood (and reminded them both that they had to do things other than study).
* A male example; in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'', Lewyn wears his hair this way in Generation 2. Fittingly, he's a stern TeamDad in that part of the game.
