Tips To Look Good While Growing A Longer Hairstyle

Growing your hair out isn’t necessarily easy; it can look choppy or awkward when you are in the “in-between” phase from short hair to long hair. Take it from us at 18I8 Barrington and follow these tips:

  • Continue to visit the barber: Just because you are growing your hair out, doesn’t mean you should stop going to your barbershop. We recommend talking with your barber, explain that you’re trying to grow your hair out, and they will help. Also, by continuing to trim your hair slightly while growing it out will keep it healthy, decrease the risk of split ends, and help manage your hair. 
  • Start with long hair on top: Begin by growing out your hair on the top of your head first. Simultaneously, you can keep the sides and back shorter. By doing so, you will avoid any sort of “mullet” look, unless that’s what you’re going for. Growing your hair out on top first will help you keep a manageable style while working towards your goal. 
  • Shampoo less: While growing your hair out, you do not need to shampoo your hair every day. In fact, sometimes, less is more. To keep your hair healthy and strong, you need rich nutrients. If you shampoo too often, you might be stripping your hair of natural oils and nutrients it needs to grow. Male with well groomed long hair and sun glasses on ,
  • Begin conditioning: If you haven’t used a conditioner with your short hair, you should definitely start while growing your hair out. Longer hair needs conditioner and moisture at the tips of the hair. This will also help keep some of your natural oils and nutrients in your hair.
  • Be patient: Hair takes time to grow, so be patient. If you are frustrated or have an awkward length of hair, come talk to our barbers at 18I8 Barrington and we will be sure to help!

With these tips, we are positive you will be well on your way to a longer hairstyle, and we can’t wait to help!
