How to Wear Your Hair When You're Growing it Out
Wavy Hair, Fine to Medium Texture
By Paola on 12 June 2009
So you decided to chop off all of your hair with great success and now you want to grow it all back but have no idea where to start. Growing your hair out can be a hard thing to do and you can become very irritated with the way you look, especially during the dreaded middle stages.
Here at TheHairStyler.com, there is help at hand, and we can show you what hairstyles you can wear when growing out your fabulous cut!
This month we have chosen to look at wavy, fine to medium texture hair types to prove that just because you have fine or medium hair doesn't mean that you can't do your hair in many different ways.
When growing out your hair, the first thing to remember is that looking after your hair is the most important step. Using a good quality shampoo and conditioner is key, followed by regular trims every 4-6 weeks. While it may seem odd to have regular trims when you're trying to grow your hair out, the trims are essential for keeping your split ends under control. You certainly don't want to find out that after growing your hair for 3 months without any trims that your spit ends are so bad you have to cut your hair short again just to get your hair looking healthy! So remember these simple tips and combine them with our hairstyle suggestions and you'll be on your way to healthy looking long hair in no time!
The First Stage is Short and Playful
This is the first stage for growing your hair. The hair has been cut with a uniform layer all over and styled using the hair's natural wave. This style is simple and easy to re-create.
Growing Your Hair is the Key to the Second Stage, but Trims are Essential
This of course doesn't mean you can't have fun. Here we see the layers are slowing growing out and adding bulk to the ends. The hair still looks great and now has a bit of energetic flair.
This is the Hardest Point but Well Rewarded in the End
This length is the annoying stage where the hair just is not quite long enough to do too much with. At this point, we can see the layers are closely meeting the length and a lovely chin length wavy bob has been created with soft side swept bangs for effect. Hang in there!
The Middle Stages! Not Being Sure About What to do With Your Hair is Half the Fun
Don't get those scissors out and cut all your hair off just yet. Try this style on for size. The hair has grown out to the shoulders with little layering to give the style shape, especially for the waves. Another advantage is that now you are able to pull your hair back into a simple ponytail.
These following stages are the most fun because you have enough length to start experimenting with what shapes are going to best suit you. This style is past the shoulders and features fresh layers around the top and sides to give the waves loads of volume. Full bangs have also been added and have been swept off to one side to create a fabulous looking 'do.
The Long Goddess
Wow! Long and mischievous, this is the perfect style. The length is now way past the shoulders and plenty of layers have been cut around the top and sides to create a fuller shape all over.
The Final Look!
This is it! You've now grown your hair right out, with only a few little hair tantrums along the way. At this point, you would have found the perfect style for your hair type and other factors without any problems, and hopefully, had fun along the way!
