Growing out a short haircut. - July 24th 2011, 03:11 AM

So, I'm trying to get my short haircut -- an inverted bob, by the way -- to grow out faster. Any tips on getting it to grow faster would be greatly appreciated.

What my main question is: Does anyone have any idea how I could style my hair differently? I straighten it a lot, and sometimes I let it go with its natural wavy-ness, but does anyone have any ideas to make it just a little different?

I miss my long hair, lol. So much more variance!

You could pull little pieces on the sides back and keep them there with bobby pins, I love that look on my if I have wavy hair...

You could always try braiding the sides as well (:

I'm not sure there is any surefire way to make your hair grow faster, aside from keeping it healthy. Get regular trims to remove dead and split ends, which I believe helps. I'd suggest growing out the angle gradually--so each time you get your hair trimmed/as it gets longer, have them cut a little less angle into it (that is, take more from the front) until you have a normal bob. From there you can go to any style you want.

Aside from that, try braids and different kinds of twists for some variance in style. Go for something a little more fresh/less overdone like a waterfall braid, fishtail, or twist. A current trend where I live is to take a chunk from the front, partially French braid it, then finish the braid off and pin it back. You can always curl it instead of leaving it wavy, or pin it back in a messy but fun style. Just because it is short doesn't mean you can't have fun with it. Good luck.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

There is no magical way to make your hair grow faster.
Although Jessie, is right you just have to take care of it. Try using less heat if you straighten it a lot or what not. I would also suggest getting it cut every 4 to 6 weeks and get an inch taken off each time. Wash it on the regular.
I honestly don't know how much keeping it up helps it grow but it does distract you on how short it is. If you put it up into an updo every day for a few weeks then you won't be staring at it and seeing how short it is.

Always remember to put your happiness first.

Like everyone else said the best way to make your hair grow faster is to keep it healthy. Taking multivitamins may also help your hair, and body in general, to become healthy. I think there are some shampoos that claim to aid growth but these are usually expensive and probably not worth it.

As for different styles perhaps just change your parting. Going from a side parting to a centre parting (or vice versa) is a pretty easy way to change your look. On that note perhaps try a full fringe if you have a side one now or a side one if you have a full fringe now. You could also try curling your hair.

I hope this helped
