I can assure you that time will fly.
When you transition from a Pixie cut to growing out your hair, you’ll learn how to style it in new and fun ways that could never have been imagined beforehand.
To grow your hair out without trimming it, you’ll need patience and learn to deal with those moments of despair when your hair seems untameable.
When you’re feeling desperate, what do you do to prevent yourself from cutting your hair?
Plan ahead as I’ll detail below.
STAGE 1: 1 TO 3 MONTHS GROWING OUT PIXIE CUT WITHOUT TRIMS
Clearly, this will be a challenging time when you grow it after a Pixie cut. All the same, I’ve been upfront about it so that you can be prepared
It’s like when you quit smoking. The first few months of not smoking can be tough and may even seem unbearable, but then the withdrawal symptoms go away and the addiction lessens.
Why is this one of the hardest stages?
Because your hair will likely have grown since the last time you cut it and then you’ll notice that neat shape will no longer be there.
Don’t worry! You’re still in charge of your hair and you’ll be able to control it. Furthermore, you can use wet and dry gels and texturizers to help keep your locks in shape.
You can play around with different shapes and use those elements to create some of the short hairstyles. The results will make you look super sexy.
Of course they exist! In the styling world, there are no limits to creativity and with a slightly grown-up pixie cut, you can get many different styles.
- You can put on gel on the sides and give volume to the front or back, as you prefer.
- If you have curls, play around with your natural volume!
- For those of you with straight hair, consider giving it volume and movement with a flat iron or curling iron. Pixie cuts often make this possible.
STAGE 2: 4 TO 5 MONTHS GROWING OUT PIXIE CUT
It’s a completely playful stage to continue experimenting with the hairstyles and different textures of the grown out Pixie Cut for example,
This is a crucial time when you should not give up and trim your hair. Your dogged persistence has taken you so far, there’s no reason to give up now.
You might be tired of styling products and gels by now. When you don’t use them, your hair’s original shape is a constant reminder of that tiredness.
But you can’t give up. If you’ll let despair win, all the effort you’ve put in so far will be useless. Please don’t change your strategy too soon and lose all that hard work.
By alternating your styling products with accessories. Want some ideas?
If you’re shy and prefer to make a subtle first impression, you can curl your locks with pins and gel to create a rebellious look.
Some people find it easier to combine their clothing choices when the colors are not too strong. Opt for designs in neutral tones to complement your clothes.
If you already successfully completed all “I believe in myself” tests, please get some bandanas to wear with your finally grown down Pixie cut. They will bring more color and fresh reflections to your flowing locks.
Hats can be a great way to accessorize and there are lots of different styles you can choose from. They also come in all different sizes, textures, and colors.
Finally, remember the latest fashion: wet hair. You’ll need a substantial amount of styling gel and bringing the hair back in order to achieve this effect.
STAGE 3: 6 TO 7 MONTHS GROWING OUT PIXIE CUT
Here you are! It’s been well over 6 months now so you’ve made it this far. Great job on the hair so far, keep up the good work. Just remember to stay creative with your hairstyles so they aren’t boring or uncomfortable!
However, this is still not the victory. There’s still a bit to go until it is finished. Your nape and sideburns will be full of short hair in very different stages, so you won’t be able to recognize the kind of cut you have
Believe me, I understand. It’s definitely not a Pixie cut and it’s not a Bob cut either. But you have to be kind to yourself – you still have to wait patiently.
Don’t give up! You’ll soon be at the limit which will allow you to progress and reach your goal: wearing your hair long, so it’s no longer a Pixie and is categorised as a Bob cut: short hair where the sides are longer than the nape of the neck.
How can you style your grown out Pixie haircut when it’s past the buzz cut stage?
- Comb the front strand, then tuck it behind your ears. Take the rest of the hair and put it over your ears, or use elastic ties or styling gel to keep it in place. You could also wear a headband or ribbon to complete the look.
- For an evening look, use gel to lift the hair at the back of your neck then style it like you would a high bun or simple waves that make your hair look shaggier.
STAGE FOUR: 8 TO 9 MONTHS GROWING OUT PIXIE CUT
You’re so close to achieving your goal – it’s been 9 months now, just like the time it takes for a human pregnancy.
And the way that you managed to do that means that you’re really good at sticking to things and can carry on with tasks. You also discovered that setting goals personally is important since you found out what sort of person you really are.
At this point, do you think the Pixie cut is just a memory? You now have a shaggy Bob with too much hair. This is where the hardest part of our journey to leave behind the Pixie cut begins.
Now, styling your hair couldn’t be easier: all you’ll have to do is style the nape of your neck and it will instantly turn into a trendy Bob.
STAGE 5: 11 TO 12 MONTHS GROWING OUT PIXIE CUT
You’ve done it! Your hair will probably be either below your jaw or below your shoulders
You’ve been through many stages in your hair journey, and there were good days and bad days in each of them. There were moments when you didn’t want to look in the mirror because of your short hair, but there are other moments when you have fun trying on different hats to help you hide it.
The Bob is for when you want to show off your hair. As opposed to when it’s cut very short, this haircut allows you to make the most of your longer hair on the sides.
All that’s left is for me to congratulate you on your hard work throughout this journey.
