The links above are the individual blog posts with the full pixie-growth updates and the month to month photos are below. I hope that you find this encouraging – although the time it takes to grow it out can be discouraging – it’s been so fun learning how to style my hair at each different length. Enjoy!

    Hi Kelsey πŸ™‚
    I’m so glad I found this too! I’m growing out a razor cut pixie (it’s grown to the bottom of my earlobe now and is slightly graduated to the front) How long did you have to wait before were you able to even it all out into a short bob?
    I hate how mine is slightly graduated on the sides (not what I had wanted!)
    My hair is really thick too so it makes it so hard to style. I just want it back to a bob! πŸ™

    Your photo timeline is encouraging though. Was yours also razor cut? I hope razor cut pixies aren’t hard to grow out. Someone told me it takes longer because of the different lengths on the ends from the razoring.
    Sorry for the long post and all the questions πŸ™
    Awesome post and great blog and you’re gorgeous! You pulled the pixie off at every stage!
    I find too if I blow dry it it poofs out and looks terrible so I have to straighten it while it grows out.
    It looked cute on Jessica stroup. I really hoped it would look that good on me. Not so much haha

    Thankyou for sharing your pixie experience luv πŸ™‚

      Hi Nicole! I’m so glad you found this helpful. Mine was also razor cut and honestly it really wasn’t that difficult (just took a lot of patience). When my hair started to seem uneven from front to back I would just have my husband trim the back. I would guess that he trimmed it about every 6 weeks? It eliminated the mullet πŸ™‚

      Good luck! It does take a little time and a lot of patience, but it’s SO worth it in the end. YOU CAN DO IT πŸ˜‰

    If you want to avoid an uneven growing-out-my-hair-look, you can go to the hairdresser and style it every few months. It makes the process easier, instead of just trimming the longest part. A short, layered bob can be a cute in-between style.

    You are truly an inspiration for me! Knowing that it is possible to look cute while growing it out gives me confidence. At the beginning of February I shaved my head to donate and at the moment it is about an inch long everywhere.
    Did you use any hair growing products at all? Did you try any methods to make it grow faster? Which month (when it was still short) did you find the easiest to style?
    I am just super nervous about the months in front of me and hoping for some help!
    Thank you!

      Yay! I’m so glad you found our site! That’s amazing that you shaved your head – that is a inspiration. I didn’t use any hair growth products, but I’ve heard that taking prenatal vitamins/biotin can speed things up? I am lucky that my hair grows at a pretty good pace.
      It was most fun to style when it was still really short (November – January) and then I think the toughest months for me were February-April when it was in the middle of “pixie” and “bob”.
      Don’t be nervous! It can seem scary when you start but each stage has its own challenges that keep it fun. πŸ™‚
      XOXO Kelsey
