Getting Back To My Old Self

I know that growing up is inevitable. I know that we are bound to change over time. I know that our apperances will change as we age. I know all that!

Do you think it’s possible to age gracefully? I see all these celebrities growing older but hardly changing. Maybe it’s some kind of witchcraft or something, I simply just don’t know. However, when it comes to me, I’m ageing disgracefully.

I look at these photos and feel incredibly sad. I feel like I let myself go and I feel like I didn’t look after myself the way that I wish I did.

I put on weight, cut my hair too short, stopped wearing makeup, stopped dressing in clothing that made me happy and I even became more depressed.

I was sharing these photos on Twitter and people kept responding with lovely things like ‘beautiful in all’ and all that kind of stuff. Don’t get my wrong, I’m super grateful for all the nice comments and they do make me feel a little better but at the end of the day, if I’m not happy with myself then I need to do something about it.

That is why, things are going to be changing around here and my life.

I’m going to get back on the weight loss game so you can actually see my jaw line again. I’m going to get back into fashion and wear clothing that makes me feel great. I’m going to start wearing make up again and practiasing different styles until I find one that I’m happy with. I’m going to grow my hair to a longer length so I can style it different ways. And most importantly, I am going to work on getting better mentally.

I’m going to start documenting my lifestyle changes on my blog, YouTube channel, Fitness Insta and Twitter. If you want to keep up to date with my life changes then I definitely recommending checking out my other socials.

Hair at No4, Wrexham ♡ Review and Experience

As you probably know by now, I have very short hair. A few months ago, I cut off most my long hair into a pixie cut.

Now that I am sick of not being able to style my hair much, I am growing my hair out. You can read more on that here.

As I mentioned, you need to get your hair trimmed often to make it grow quicker!

For that very reason, I made myself an appointment to get a trim at Hair at No4 in Wrexham, UK.

When I went in the make the appointment, I booked it for the 6th. However, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer so I rang up on the 1st and booked myself in for the 2nd.

I couldn’t believe that they had last minute appointments available as I had heard that they are usually busy.

So, I woke up early that morning, headed to town and went to my appointment. I arrived early and they saw to me straight away. I was the only one in the salon which was great because I get nervous when I’m in busy places.

I explained to the hairdresser exactly what I wanted and she understood me straight away.

I was so happy with my cut. Now, it’s all even and I even have a little side fringe which hides my huge forehead.

Now my hair will grow out more evenly and will grow even quicker.

I asked the hairdresser how much it would cost and she said £14.50. I couldn’t believe how cheap it was. I got the perfect cut for the perfect price!

What To Expect When Growing Out Your Pixie Cut

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
