You Can Do It! Growing Your Hair Out: The Awkward Stages

Ok. Here is the deal. We cut our hair super short and look amazing with it. But after a while we let it go because we haven't made time for ourselves and are like, "Well- I'll just keep going and see where I end up." Usually one of two things will happen at this point- 

1) Your hair is at this weird stage where you look like a not so chic chick from the 1920s or a mean little elf and so you just chop it all off again 
or 
2) You live through this state somehow and make it to the other side!!!! (Below your ears and/or chin). 

Now some people no doubt can pull of that look- take every woman with a perfect oval shape face and cute little pixie features....but most people can't. So we deal. We throw on headbands, use bobby pins in ways we never imagined, or resort to our preteens and wear animal barrettes...or maybe you don't. Anyways- here are some celebs that have lived to tell the tale of the journey to long luscious locks. 

MICHELLE WILLIAMS:

(WEIRD MIDDLE STAGE...C'MON, MICHELLE...YOU CAN DO IT!!!)


HOORAY!

NATALIE PORTMAN: Starting from scratch:






(if you guessed this as the awkward stage- you are CORRECT!!!)


(AND SHE MADE IT!)



KERIA KNIGHTLY:

(BINGO- "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR HAIR STAGE?")





Now, I don't really know at what times these hairstyles occurred in the actual celebrities life, I just thought they were pretty good examples of the stages of growing their hair out. You can always tell the weird growing out phases- like you know something is wrong, you just can't put your finger on it. But in order to grow it out- you must hold steady and brace yourself. 

Just do what we all do- pin it, clip it, bear with it, wear a hat, tuck it behind your ears, wear little pig tails, throw a headband in it...work with it. Also, an actual word of advice- look for pictures of people with hair at similar lengths as yours- even having it shaped up a little will give you somewhat of a style other than just letting it go completely. You still need to have it "de-bulked" and cleaned up. Don't worry, kiddo- you will get there in time. May the Hair Gods be with you!

  4. I am so weary of cutting my hair short simply because of the awkward growing out stage. If celebrities can do it on the red carpet, maybe I can muster up the courage.
