Growing out a Pixie Cut


This has got to be the only thing that is as challenging as getting the winged eyeliner on both eyes to match. Growing out a pixie cut really tests your patience, so here are a few tips to help you transition.

1. Make hair pins, headbands, hair gel or anything that helps you feel in control of your growing hair your best friend.{{more}}

2. Be sure to trim your split ends as they restrain the growth of your hair.

3. Tuck the longest layer of your hair behind your ears for a short bob effect.

4. A grown out pixie cut gives you the opportunity to wear full or side bangs. Take advantage of it and wear your bangs well.

5. Drink lots of water and take your vitamins.

6. Use hair products that promote hair growth and keep your hair moisturized.

7. When transitioning gets stressful, be adventurous and try braids in any style you fancy.

8. Experiment with your curling iron when you aren’t sure what to do with your hair anymore.

9. Ignore discouraging comments about your hair. The end result is going to be worth it.

10. Be extremely patient.
