How to Grow Out a Pixie

I recently cut my hair to a short pixie cut . Not that I don’t love it short, but I decided to start growing it back out . Growing out a pixie is a lot like growing out bangs, if you have ever been through that frustration. You try to be patient, but all you want to do is cut it all off because it’s so awkward. In order to cope with the overwhelming desire to cut it all off, I have been trying some different things with my hair.

Normally, I have a very heavy front piece, and push it all forward and can flip it all to either side. As it gets a little longer, I am able to curl most of it to create some texture while eliminating the feeling of having an overgrown bowl on my head. Another cute style I’ve been trying as it grows a bit, has been to push everything back from the center of the top of my head, and leaving a nice little side bang area, maybe wear a headband to keep everything back. On nights I feel a little more spicy, I will push all of my hair back to a pompadour, sleek on the sides with volume on top. Teasing my hair a bit and giving it that bouffant volume makes it look like a completely different hair cut.

If you find yourself still bored and desiring to cut it off, try changing up your color. Adding a few peekaboos or highlight will add dimension and will give you a feeling of a new style, without compromising the length you’ve been working so hard to achieve. Start looking for pictures to make it through the phases. This will help you to make small goals rather than waiting the entire time until you get that Victoria secret hair. Be patient, take vitamins, and don’t cut it!
