When you're over your current hairstyle and want to change it up, usually you let it grow on its own, right? And once you have the desired length, that's when you cut it to get the style you want.

Get regular haircuts

It may seem counterintuitive to cut hair when you're trying to grow it, but when it comes to a pixie, it's a must to get regular trims. You'll find the hair in the back will grow faster than the ones in the front. To make your tresses look even and sophisticated, trim the back of your hair every four weeks and "build" the rest of your tresses towards the length you actually want, like a chin-length bob. It may take a while, but patience is important when growing out a pixie cut

Grow it in sections

Different parts of your hair won't grow at the same length and speed—such is life. To achieve the bob or lob of your dreams, Teen Vogue recommends you start adding layers to your 'do. This will make the transition easier, especially if one part is growing slower than the rest

Take care of your hair

For your hair to maintain its luster and shine, make sure to keep your mane and scalp healthy and clean. Don't forget to use a mask weekly to give it some TLC.

Another way to make hair grow faster is to minimize hair coloring and bleaching as this can make strands dry and prone to breaking. But if you really really want to color your hair, then you better stock up on all the hydrating and sulfate-free shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks to keep your mane in tip-top shape!

Accessories are your BFF

Hair accessories, whether they're simple or bold, can always freshen up and add a fun element to any growing pixie cut or short hairstyle—mainly if it's one of those days when you're just not feeling your hair!

Don't be shy to style it

Long pixie cuts often look gorg one day and messy the next. In instances when your bangs, cowlick, or even certain sections of your hair, refuse to behave to the will of your hands, a straightener or blow dryer will save you from a bad hair day. Or if you don't want to put heat in your hair, just slick it all back! This classic short hairstyle only calls for water, hair gel, and a comb.
