The reign of the pixie cut started this year thanks to  stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley and we definitely loved it! But the chilly 'ber months are here and that means the need to have long luscious locks has come, too–to keep warm and sport the cutest hairstyles, of course. So if you're finally itching to grow out your short hair, we support you 100%! But since pixie cuts aren't the easiest to grow out, we're here to help you out. We put together a list of really easy and doable hairstyles you can try and recreate to make transitioning your hair a lot less painful and awkward. All you need to do is scroll down to see the different looks you can try when your hair is not cooperating. Pick your favorite and try it out, that way you can always change your look in an instant!


1. Go for a side part that's sleek with the help of hair gel and wax just like Shailene Woodley's 'do here. This hairstyle is perfect for when you need to tame your growing pixie for those formal events.

2. Create a faux updo when you need to dress your hair up just like Jennifer Lawrence's tousled growing pixie here. For this look, hairspray and a comb will be your best bets!

3. Getting bored with your pixie while waiting for it to grow? Trim your bangs for a change of look and tie your longer sections of hair into a faux top bun like Kelly Osbourne.

4. Color the ends of your hair with a different shade for that cool ombre effect. This look helps hide any uneven cuts and sections when growing out your locks. Go for a subtle color or be bold and opt for a bright hue just like Kristen Stewart.


5. If you're suddenly missing your pixie but you're still committed to growing your hair? Create the illusion that your short locks are back by styling your hair in beach waves and pinning all the ends at the back. Just look at how chic Emma Roberts looks!

6. Don't forget to have fun with your hair just like Big Bang star Kaley Cuoco! We're super digging her crazy mohawk-like hairstyle here.

7. You can still look polished even when your hair is already at that awkward bob stage. All you need to do is slick it back with some hair serum and add a headband to recreate Lily Collin's ultra chic 'do.
