Short Wavy Hair Dilemma

IndigoBansheeIndigoBanshee Posts: 6Registered Users
I'm growing out my pixie and it's getting close to a chin bob, but not there yet. It's 2b/2c when it grows out longer, with some big sausage curls.

I haven't found a good hairstylist here yet. I am allergic to sulfates, so I haven't used them in a long time, but I have been blow drying my hair because it's so awkward. The curl pattern shows up a lot more by the time it's shoulder-length, but right now it's got some straight pieces and some wavy pieces.

I'm not really sure what to do with it right now.

    Haha, yes :) most of us have been through some sort of awkward phase with our hair.

    Invest in some nice headbands and/or hair clips! It's also fun to play around with your part. Maybe alternate between a deep side part and a regular side part. If it's something you're willing to try, consider coloring your hair if you find yourself getting bored with the in-between length.

    Also, look at photos of celebrities with your similar hair texture and length for style inspiration. Carey Mulligan would be a good start!
