Style Four: Razor-cut Rocker Chic
 
long layered hairstyle        This is a long-layered look that becomes accessible with another 4 to 5 months of growth. The hair cut now features consistent bulk along the full range of the head top to ends and the layers are cut to be more random than a traditional long-layered cut. This allows the creation of a wild, tousled look that can also be styled smooth and sleek, with enough length to be worn up for more formal affairs.
 
       Once again, this cut has a perimeter trimmed to ensure even length from side to side around the back (or it can follow whatever line is desired). The fringe area is razor cut to create an angled bangs that have softened ends. The length is layered to evenly distribute the bulk of the hair, and is textured using a long sweeping slice along the length to give some added definition to the finished cut.
 
       Style the cut by blow-drying using paddle brush and styling the lengths straight in a down and forward-angled direction. Apply smoothing serum and styling gel/lotion while the hair is still damp (before drying begins). This will enable you to create smoother, defined tresses. Once the hair is dry, apply a small amount of pomade or styling wax to the fingers and pass locks of the hair through them to give added definition and separate individual locks.
 
       When used in sequence, these four styles can ensure that you can progress from short to longer styles with minimal aggravation from in-between stages. Just remember that you need to remind your stylist that you are planning to grow your hair out. If possible, have your stylist make a file on your hairstyle plans, showing the different stages and work out a timeline for you so that you will be able to stay on track with the look you are trying to achieve.
 
       If we can help women (and men) to understand how to plan for their hair growth progress, perhaps fewer people will be afraid of making changes in their look. Who knows, you may find you prefer shorter lengths. And if not, you’ll have a game plan to take you from short to long again.
