So I’m Growing Out My Pixie Cut

So I decided to grow out my pixie. I found myself lusting over top knots and beach waves- things that my 2 inch locks just can’t achieve. So I decided it’s time. I won’t lie- the whole concept has me terrified – the dreaded awkward length, the reintroduction of the curling iron, the uncooperativeness of unruly thin/fine hair in general. I’m more scared now then when I was when I cut it- it seems like such a daunting task but I hear it is possible. But I feel I’ll be the one screaming to the stylist after two months of trying and saying “I can’t do this anymore! It’s awful and my hair hates me! CUT IT OFF!”

After rocking your pixie for a while, you might decide you kind of miss the ponytail option. Since there isn’t a miracle growth pill you can take, we must wait for those luscious locks to grow back.

No problem, you’ll just grow it out.

You research other people’s attempts online and hope you’ll be one of those people whose hair just naturally grows gracefully.

But you already know you’re not that girl

At first it’s not so bad.

This phase lasts forever, and pretty much your only option is to overcompensate with a decorative headband.

But headbands cause the worst headaches.

Don’t compare yourself to celebs who effortlessly grow out their hair- it’s all a lie

You try a wig and you look nothing like Eleven

You think you’ll just have to cut it and
live with a pixie forever.

YOU’VE REACHED THE BOB!

cut it off again
