The hair blues... Growing out the pixie.

No this is not another post on my addiction to all things blue, this is a post on holiday blues, Monday blues and the hair blues. It would appear that my love of Blue has taken over my life. Whilst I am desperate to be back in Cornwall I have resigned to the fact that the holiday is over and I'm thrown back into the rigour of home life in the half term. Food shopping with children in tow, meals out over and a day trip every day is now a far off treat.


On top of that I have my daily battle of making my grown out pixie crop look presentable. I'm at that annoying in between stage and desperately not trying to break down and go back to the crop, for I've already come very close.



It's not that I didn't like my cropped style, I loved it. I'm just bored. However I'm at the stage where I don't want to go shorter and I don't want to go back blonder. So my aim had to change, I'm now heading for a Dawn Porter-esque bob. 



After that then who knows, even Dawn had that awkward growing out stage. Its the hell that any woman growing out a style begrudgingly has to go through. 




I like the idea of going back to long and creating a ambitious 50s inspired hair do.




The reality is I will probably get to the longer length, complain constantly of the the fly away nature of it and how I can't do anything with it. I will probably end up blonder again and moan of the constant root upkeep too.

But just for once I want to be patient. I'm determined to get to my goal and not eat my words. I will get there. So here's to plenty more quiffs, hats and some messy curly odd styles.

  2. I went through this recently too Hollie my hair was as short as yours last summer, although it does grow quick. Mine was horrible and still hasn't fully grown out, I still have a shorter side. Yours looks great you wouldn't be able to tell its growin out, stick with it, it'll be worth it!!

    1. I have given up about 3 times in the last few months and this time I'm determined! Thing is I've been in this stage before and I did grow it. Fingers crossed I stick with it!

  3. You look great but I so get you because I've been there too! Tunisian hairdressers aren't as well trained as ones back home & I've come out of so many salons in tears here! I'm growing it out atm so that I can just do 'messy up do's' this summer to save myself the heartache! The "Bob" will look amazing on you! Andrea x

    1. Oh Andrea that's the worst. I was a hairdresser pre children and still dabble a bit on friends. I'm so fussy and particular about my hair now it's hilarious. I can tuck behind the ear now which is an achievement itself! I'm hoping by crimbo I'll have a bob! X

  4. Your bob will be here before you know it. The hardest bit is getting it past your ears and having learnt that lesson early on, I've always had hairstyles which covered the ears so I've never had that problem again. I'd love a pixie but would be terrified. I used my hair as a hiding device and always have done. I had it bobbed the Christmas before (inverted) and lamented over the fact that I couldn't tie it up and the fact that I unfortunately looked a bit of a Stepford wife. It can be a fine line but I don't think you will ever hit Stepford territory.

  6. I love your pixie cut. Not many people can carry it off as well as you do. But I totally relate to how painful it is to try and grow it out. Been there!! Stick with it - your hair always looks great.

    1. Thankyou! I guess I can always cut it off if I decide a bob isn't me. Just wish it would grow faster!

  7. I too have short hair and am currently debating as to whether I should grow it or get it cut. I have managed to grow it to jaw length over a year ago but got bored and had it cut like Frankie Sandford had that for about 5 months got bored and chopped it all off into a pixie cut, if I had left it I would probably have shoulder length hair by now :-( Stick with it u can do it.

    1. Thanks Emma, you know I'll probably get to the longer lengths, hate it and then cut it all off again! X
