Admittedly, women and hair – this is a touchy subject. After life-changing events such as a breakup, a trip to the hairdresser often follows. Something new is needed – also on the head. Short-circuit reactions cannot be ruled out. A flowing lion’s mane quickly becomes a short pixie cut. But once the separation is digested, doubts suddenly arise about the new hairstyle and many regret the radical cut. Then it takes a little patience until the short hairstyle becomes a curly mane again. And an undercut didn’t disappear overnight either. The good news is that going from short to long hair doesn’t have to be a compromise. These transitional hairstyles are the best proof!
It’s tearing your hair out: the new short hairstyle just seemed to have been the best decision, but suddenly doubts arise – and you want your long hair back.
Another case: The once well-fitting trendy hairstyle has outgrown the cut and no longer fits at the front and back. Although many want a new haircut, they pick up the scissors again and stick with the short haircut.
There is a great alternative to hairstyle frustration: intermediate lengths are no longer a problem – they are the solution! Whether choppy or clavi cut, medium-length hairstyles are more popular than ever. If you look at the streets of the fashion metropolises and the heads of hip influencers, it quickly becomes clear – Caro Daur has long had her hair in the hip length and Olivia Palermo is also a fan of the hairstyle trend.
A step cut is the ideal transitional hairstyle after a short haircut (such as a pageboy). Once the hair has reached shoulder length, regular tip trimming is sufficient. In order to let the hair grow healthy and fast, you should pay attention to the right hair care. The healthier the scalp and hair, the faster the hair grows. Regular rinses and care treatments are highly recommended.
By the way: This is how you can make the hair treatments yourself.
Going to the hairdresser is also worthwhile for a nice transitional hairstyle. After all, very few dream of a transitional mullet. To prevent this from happening, undercut wearers should make sure that the hair on the back of their neck is regularly adjusted to the length of the top hair. If you want to grow a long pixie cut, it’s much easier: Since the short hairstyle is already cut in stages, it doesn’t take too long for the “unattractive” in-between length to grow into a stylish transitional hairstyle.
In this context, “thinning” should not be neglected. Never heard? It is the term for thinning out – if you want to grow out a bob hairstyle, you should definitely thin out the tips so that there are no puffy areas at chin level. Be careful with thin hair: only minimal thinning is allowed here.
Jennifer Lawrence shows just how stylish transitional hairstyles can look: the actress parted with her long flowing mane and opted for a trendy pixie cut. Just a few months later, the short hairstyle became a casual bob hairstyle and soon became a popular Clavi Cut.
The hairdresser you trust can also be a real savior when it comes to transitional hairstyles. The more often the ends of the hair are cut, the fewer split ends occur. The result: the hair stays healthy and grows faster. Victoria Beckham also shows what a successful transition from a short hairstyle to the trendy clavi cut can look like. After the fashion designer swapped her long hairstyle for a pixie cut, it didn’t take too long before she let her short hair grow back.
Anyone who thinks that there are not so many styling options for transitional hairstyles is mistaken. Updos with hair accessories, classic chignons or braided hairstyles can be styled without much effort. Beach waves or sleek looks also look great on women’s hairstyles. By the way: Headbands, hair bands and other hair accessories are not only ideal for intermediate lengths, but also for growing bangs. At a certain length, the fringe can also be tucked behind the ear or pinned with hair clips.
