Pixie Part 2

Welcome to part two!  Thank you for returning if you are back again, and if you stumbled across this post first, you can click here and go to Part 1!

So where did I leave you?  Ah yes…

At the growing out phase!  Duh! 🙂

Well lets jump right into to, shall we?

<><><>

So, I got it cut September 13th 2013, almost two years ago exactly, and I was so nervous!  I adore Audrey Hepburn, and my family often says that I resemble her.  Her hair was in the cutest most elegant pixie and I just wanted that so badly!  Anyway, the above picture is from the day I came home after getting it cut, and now for Part 2, I shall take you on the growing out journey…

Two days after getting a pixie we went to the beach.  It was SO nice having a pixie at the beach because you didn’t have to do anything to your hair!  Aside from getting use to it, I really enjoyed that.

Now I will admit that a month or so after cutting my hair I started to regret it.  I think it just hit me that I didn’t have my hair anymore!  It never really occurred to me that I might feel that way, but I got over it by October/November. 🙂

After the beach there was the idea in my head to attempt hair styling products…yeah.  The lady who cut my hair swore by using wax and mousse, etc, to style a pixie otherwise it would never be manageable, but for the life of me I couldn’t use those products!  Oh, and there’s my little friend from Part 1!

By October it grew quite a bit!  This length is nice because you have enough hair to start styling with.

Apparently at the time, only a month into having a pixie, I didn’t think it was short enough!  This is the shortest I ever had it and I was terrified when I came home and saw how short the back was after getting it freshened up!  But it was for the better…it grew out very nicely from here on.

The pictures above were taken a couple days after the short cut.  I post these to show haw the sides and front of my hair grew.  A plus to getting a pixie is that your hair feels so fresh and healthy and seems to grow fast, which it did (I was getting it trimmed every week it felt like!), but at the same time it feels like forever trying to grow it!  I’m getting ahead of myself (no pun intended).

The next few pictures will be from November 2013.

In December it was long enough all around to curl, and I was very proud of myself for curling my own hair!  Styling, especially with heated tools, is not my forte.

Ok!  So that was the rest of 2013…lets see how it went through 2014.

By January 2014, only 4 months with a pixie, I was determined to grow it out.  That might make you think I didn’t enjoy it, but I’ll explain my feelings about it more as the growing continues.

February 1st: BRAIDS!  The picture above to the left was before I braided my hair (weird angle), and then to the right is the result!  Turned out pretty good!  I must say that my hair styling skills have gotten a lot better during this short hair experience.

Nice and shaggy!

So…in 2014 my bedroom was a MESS!  I openly admit it…horrible mess.

Ok, so I have at least one (1) picture from every month until the present day.  Call me conceited!  Call me self centered!  Call me vain!  Whatever!  It was really fun logging my pixie process and I enjoyed it and I hope you all do too!

Today I will leave you here, at the end of February 2014, and next time we’ll pick up March 2014.  Have a wonderful day!

Jenny~
