Growing Out Your Hair Minus the Frustration

Monday 19 December 2011

If you've ever cut your hair really short...and I'm talking REALLLLY short as in pixie short, you know how frustrating it can be to grow it out. Hayden Panettiere is a a great example of how versatile short hair can be, even when you are growing it out. 

A Quiff is a simple and easy way to give more volume to your hair. It is also great for when your hair isn't long enough to put in a pony, and easily gets in your eye. 

Another great way to get your hair off your face if its hot, or you are playing sports/at the gym is to twirl your hair and use a bobby pin to pin it back.

I love her hair here! She has a slight curl and has lots of body and shine. Just because your hair isn't long and cascading down, it doesn't mean you have to forgo curls. You just need to be realistic on how they will sit, and not make them too tight.

Straightening your hair will give the illusion of a bit longer hair. The great things about her hair is it has lots of layers so she can mess it up and as it grows out it will become a shaggy lob. 

Victoria Beckham is also a great example that a pixie cut isnt boring and can only be worn one way. As she was growing out her hair she played with its texture by either smoothing it down straight or doing chunky pieces. 

She also played around with accessories! Hair clips, headbands and broaches in your hair can be amazing to change it up, especially for a night out.

She is incredible lucky to have a hairstylist on call, but for the rest of us, a simple way of updating it is to change the part. Try a side part, or even a deep side part. If your hair is getting longer, you can also try a middle part. Otherwise highlights or lowlights are great to add more depth and dimension to your hair. 

Has anyone got any other ideas to make growing out their hair less frustrating? Is anyone thinking of chopping off their hair for summer?
