So you did it. You sheared off your lovely locks, and now you’re over it. Time to grow it out. But how? Fear not. I’ve foraged the trail. Just follow along.
Here’s my hair before I chopped it off. I could cry looking at this picture. Look at how long it was!
Just under a month into my pixie, I think I’d kind of had it. I enjoyed the ease, but I wasn’t enjoying the monotony of only having one possible style. So, I dyed it brown, my natural color. I hadn’t trimmed it at all at this point — this is pure growth.
Then, you enter the dreaded Beiber stage. You’ve got a bowl cut, and there isn’t much you can do about it. Keep the back trimmed to avoid a mullet, and distract with fun earrings or hair accessories.
You can kind of see the back filling in a bit more in this shot. I rocked (and still rock) the heck out of a pompadour to keep the longer bangs out of my face. Easiest thing ever! But I am constantly in search of two bobby pins. Why do those things always disappear?
This is where I am now. It kind of looks like I actually meant for this cut to happen! I’m still growing, so hopefully I’ll have enough to pull into a pony tail…someday.
So overall, it took about 7 months to go from super short pixie to chin length a-line cut. I never thought I would get here, but I did! Keep the faith. Trim it when needed, and just be patient.
