Stuck on Short Hair...

You've had enough of short hair and have decided to grow it out. And then you hit that awkward inbetween stage which makes you throw your hairbrush in the air with frustration and run to the nearest hairdressers.
What can you do to help get past that annoying stage? 
  • Accessorise wisely! - Either choose a simple but effective pattern in kirby grips as seen as many a catwalk, or go for a thick headband with volume at the crown to give a 60's feel. 

  • Cheat - If you really are struggling with your hair why not try out a wig or hairpiece. There are plenty of websites that have a whole host of  styles to suit. Try Annabelle's Wigs or Wonderland Wigs for inspiration.
  • Get creative - Twist and pin random sections and try curling the hair you have to create different styles that hide any bad-hair days you might be having. Carey Mulligan's hair looks absolutely incredible like this, perfect style for growing out your hair (makes me wnat to get mine cut to wear mine like it!)

  • Get a trim - Just because you are growing your hair, don't back away from the stylist completely. Getting regularly trims helps mould hair into the style you want and keep things looking tidy. Explain carefully you are growing out your existing style and just want the ends trimmed. 
The celebrity I always think of when looking at growing out a short style is Emma Watson. Although I thought she looked stunning with short hair, she embraced the inbetween length and went for slicked back styles and cute mini buns. 
Are you growing your hair out of an existing short style? Or have you tried and realised it wasn't for you?

  2. Hello ladies,

    It's so inspiring to read your comments.

    I decided to set up a place within a stylish barbershop called Red Scissors in Camden Town, specialising in short haircuts - gender neutral - and created a feel that clients can be whoever they feel to be and bring out their personality within the hairstyle they ask me for or let me create.
    I’m interested to let people know that there is a space where everyone can enjoy the haircutting experience, can talk or to close your eyes and relax.
    Everyone is treated equally and this is a GENDER FREE PRICING SALON.
    Dry cut is for £13.5
    Style cut is for £16.5
