I saw a thread recently on the pros and cons of getting a pixie haircut. Someone was asking about growing out said hairstyle.
I am in the same postion myself - have held off any trims for a good few weeks and have been searching for styles and inspiration to keep away from the salon a little longer to let my hair grow a tad longer.
So I found this - which I thought might be useful for those of us who are trying to grow a short crop and are getting frustrated at this in between stage of mullet/Michael McIntyre style
Thanks for sharing this! It's been 4.5 months since my last cut and I need the back sorting out and the poofiness taken out of the sides. I'm not 100% sure (right this second) if I'm going back to short short or grow it out to a chin length bob, but it's encouraging to see how easy it can be.
I feel like there's too many pics of me and my barnet on MN, but I'll post a couple more any way everyone's so marmite over it but I love(d) how little it needs when it's short. I haven't missed my styling tools at all, or having to dry it every day so my head isn't a block of ice on the school run.
I'm growing out my pixie just now. I can't stress strongly enough to visit your hairdresser once a month for the first few months and get it tidied up. This is the only way to avoid helmet head! And it'll keep it in good condition too.
