I have had a pixie cut for about half a year now and I miss my longer hair. I felt more princessy with longer hear and I loved styling it in space buns. I can’t do that anymore though.
That is why I’m now growing out my pixie cut.
When it was first cut, it was an asymmetric pixie with my fringe being a lot longer. Since then, I have tried to trim the front on the longer side to make it more even as it grows out.
If you have a pixie cut that you’re looking to grow out or you’re thinking about getting a pixie cut then keep on reading.
How To Grow Out Your Pixie Cut
Get regular trims
I know, I know, the point of GROWING out a pixie cut is that you want it to get longer not shorter. That is exactly the point. It’s also why you need trims. Your hair needs to get healthier for it to grow so cut off those dead ends and nothing more. Don’t go super short (again), just take off those pesky ends.
Learn Some Styling Tips
Your hair is going to go through many different stages. You don’t want to look funny with your hair while that happens and you don’t want to be stuck wearing hats. That’s why you need to practice different styles for different lengths of hair.
It’s important to keep your hair fun and interesting even though it will be super annoying. You don’t want to get that pixie cut again just because you’re sick of the same boring style. That would let all your hard work go to waste.
Make friends with headbands
Headbands are going to be your best friend. You can pull tricks with a headband by doing two things.
- Give your hair lots of volume then push it back with a headband. I suggest curling it, since curls will make hair seem shorter and less awkward, and curls will also make any uneven lengths less obvious if you’re between cuts.
- You can wear a headband that wraps around and tuck the pieces in the back under the bottom of the headband. It’s tricky and might require some pins, but it will look cute like a curled-under little bob.
If all else fails, invest in some wigs or hats.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t have a pixie cut. If you want one then go for it. It’s one of the best things I ever did and gave me a huge confidence boost. However, it’s time for mine to go now.
If you really can’t deal with how your pixie cut looks while it’s growing, invest in some wigs and hats. Remember, you can cover your hair no matter what so you should always be able to feel confident even while you’re not so happy with your hair.
