When you are growing out a short haircut, you will undoubtedly go through a transition period where your hair just doesn't look right. The hair over your ears will look funny. Pieces will be sticking out here and there. Ugh!
But it doesn't have to be a disaster. Follow these haircare tips and you will still look beautiful while your hair is growing out.
The right hair products
can do wonders. If your hair is frizzy, add straightening gel to wet hair. Then use a narrow flat iron to smooth it out. Another great idea is to give your hair some volume. Use a volumizing shampoo
and style with hair gel to give it a spiky or bed head
Though your hair isn't long enough for a ponytail, you may still need to pin it back. While your hair is growing out, hair accessories will become your new best friend. Fortunately, beaded hair combs
, crystal barrettes and embellished hair pins are very popular right now. Use bobby-pins to tuck hair up on the sides. Then add fun clips, combs and other hair accessories to finish off the look.
Slick it back
Another alternative is to slick your hair back and show off your beautiful face! While your hair is wet, comb it from front to back. Get a silver dollar size scoop of pomade, such as Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Pomade
, and rub it in your hands to warm it up. Then apply the pomade to your hair from front to back, working it through. Comb your hair once again to make sure the product is distributed well. Top it off with a spritz of hairspray.
Cover it up
When all else fails, cover it up. With so many cute hats
available right now, you can find one for any occasion. Whether you are going out to lunch with your girlfriends or you have a date with a special someone, you can wear a suitable hat.
