So, you’re over your extreme pixie cut and you
want to grow it out — like, yesterday! Not so fast. Stop
and check out these three simple tips from hairstylist
Matt Fugate in
Allure. Take the time to give your hair what it needs
to grow from pixie to long, and look healthy doing it. Trust
us, you’ll be so glad you did.

Embrace Your In-Between Length
Your post-pixie life doesn’t need to be miserable. You can
still embrace your hair length now, even in the
awkward growing-out phase. Try a cool accessory or get
creative with styling wax. Take a cue from a post-pixie
Emma Watson. Allure writer Jenna
Rosenstein was inspired by Watson’s creativity with her
in-between hair: “She spiked her hair up, slicked it back, and
wasn’t afraid to try a messy braid or glitzy accessory during
the awkward phase!”
Cut Your Hair (Yes, Really!)
You may think that avoiding scissors will help you get back to
your goal length. Not so! Instead, Fugate advises, get a neck
trim every four weeks. “Always keep the back of a pixie cut
looking strong,” he says, “and build the rest of your hair
toward that length, towards a bob. I always say if you’re going
to grow it out, grow it out pretty.” Regular
trims will keep your hair growing smooth and split-end
free, helping you get your hair to long — even faster.
