6 – 8 weeks post pixie: Your first haircut during the grow-out stage should not be a full cut – ask to simply taper the neck area. Your stylist should then remove weight through the top, back and sides without cutting length, since, during this period, your hair will be subject to the dreaded round and heavy phase.
3 – 4 months, post: Styling is now a ROYAL pain! You are now begging your stylist to cut it all off, even though you made a blood pact with them not to do so. It’s time to get creative. Hair accessories, like bobby pins, should be kept handy and aplenty. Old school styling tools – yes, we mean a curling iron – will save your sanity at this point.
At 5 – 6 months: It that a graduated bob shape I see forming?! Yes! Ask your stylist to tighten up the length around the nape and add some texture to the rest.
At 7 – 8 months, post pixie-cut: You’ve got a bob! Add some layers or solidify the perimeter line, whatever your heart desires! You’re home free now!
