Project Hair Grow – One Year Later
About a year ago I swore I was a short haired gal for life. I was never breaking up with my pixie cut. And then something shifted in my brain and suddenly I said, I’m tired of this hairstyle and I want to grow it out. So I set out on a journey I dubbed “Project Hair Grow”. When I started growing out my hair I didn’t really have a vision as to where it was going to end up. By the summer I found some pictures on Pinterest that I decided were kind of what I had in mind. I will never be one for super long hair, so my ultimate goal has been a bit of a stacked bob. I’m pretty close to where I want to be at this point.
It’s been a fun learning experience and not as frustrating as I thought it would be. It helped that a large chunk of the time I was growing it out was in the summer when headbands are pretty much the name of the game. I did decide about halfway through to grow out my bangs as well, in the beginning I was keeping the bangs. The bangs definitely slowed me down a bit, but thankfully they’re catching up quickly. I also decided about halfway through this last year to stop going to the cheap hair place and re-embraced salon life and that has made a huge difference. And finally, I added some color last month and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
It’s amazing to look back and see how far I’ve come – I can’t believe how short I used to keep my hair at this point! I am guessing someday I’ll go back to the pixie look, but for now I’m going to enjoy this new style.
