1. Tricia Gosingtian teaches us in the tutorial below how to create a faux perm that will make growing out your hair look extra cute! Choosing to curl your hair can hide any uneven cuts or awkward lengths.


2. Go for the messy-wet-look just like Kathryn Bernardo. This '90s inspired hairstyle is perfect when you want to avoid that awkward length. For this look you'll need an atomizer with water, some gel, and a bit of hair spray, too!

3. When you're having an extra bad hair day, just tie your growing locks in a bun and add on a cute embellished headband. This will not only give you a polished look but also elevate your whole outfit just like Taylor Swift below.

4. Gor for a choppy look like Ashley Benson. Ask your stylist to cut your ends with lots of choppy layers so that you can keep the messy, beach waves while growing your bob.

5. Another really bad hair day? Keep your hair looking neat by topping it off with a hat or beanie just like Lily Collins. Quickly curl the ends for a more polished, pretty look.
