( the starting point )
I have a handful of resolutions for 2015, but I'm only going to share just one of them... and it's a silly one at that. In 2015, I'm resolving to have more hair. That's right... I'm growing out my pixie cut.
Don't laugh! It's actually harder than it sounds. It takes time and a lot of patience. I started the growing out process when we moved to Southern California in September. The inevitable awkward stages have already started popping up, which make me want to chop it back down to a nub. I'm going to stick it out though... I'm ready for a little change in the hair department. I love having super short hair, but recently I've been yearning for a little bit more of something to style and play with. My goal length isn't long (my fine hair isn't meant for much length). Just a simple, textured bob.
For the fun of it, I'll share updates along the way. But in the meantime, here's five steps I'm taking to help me get there in 2015...
1) Get Regular Clean-Ups
The best way to work through awkward stages is to get
regular clean-ups. This may seem counterintuitive, but it's
essential. Regular clean-ups are particularly important at the
neckline. Keeping the back clean will prevent the potential of
a mullet from forming.
2) Keep The Color Fresh
I've had my fair share of fun with color over the years. These
days I just want my color to look healthy and natural. Keeping
up with subtle glosses or coloring techniques will help it stay
shiny and fresh as it grows.
3) Have Fun Styling
As I get more length on my head, the more I'll be able to do
with my hair. Playing with new and different styles and styling
techniques will help from falling into a boring hair rut.
4) Take Vitamins
Aside from my daily dose of multivitamins, I've been taking
biotin to help encourage my hair to grow.
5) Have Reminders Handy
It's easy to stray off course, especially when awkward stages
arise. Therefore, having pictures handy to remind myself of
my goal length will help kill that urge to take the easy
route and chop it.
