So you have finally decided to let your hair grow out and begin transitioning to natural hair. In the meantime that in-between look can put you in the boredom doldrums, and it seems as if it’ll never get to your desired length.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can have fun, sexy and flirty hair while growing out short hair, simply by following some fun tips.

Add Color

Coloring your hair is another easy way of adding a dramatic look to your seemingly boring locks. Try adding either highlights, lowlights or if you are feeling a bit adventurous, you can even change your entire hair color.

If you decide to color your hair, you have the option of either doing it yourself and purchasing a do it yourself coloring kit or heading to the salon.

At home color can be an inexpensive option, but make sure to follow the instructions on the kit for best results.

If you’re not sure or confident enough to do it yourself, then you can seek a professional salon to do it for you. Going to a salon may be a better option if you’ve never colored your hair before. You will be able to get a better opinion and better results by speaking with a professional.

While you are in the process of growing out short hair, adding color will give it more dimension, add shine and give your hair an overall healthy look. Be sure to avoid bleaching your strands, though, as this can severely damage the hair and damaged hair grows much more slowly than their healthy counterparts.


Go ahead and add a fun-factor to your hairstyle. Even if your hair is at an awkward length there are ways to jazz it up. Try different accessories like hair-ties, headbands, bows or clips.

Hair-ties are perfect for women on the go. Just pull your hair back in a ponytail or bun for a quick and easy style. Headbands can be another easy option. You can use a headband to push your hair away from your face giving you a more neat and fixed look. Pull your hair to the side or back with a bow or feather to give your hair a sexy and flirty look.

When using your hair accessories, make sure to not pull hair tightly, as this can cause damage to both your hair and scalp.

Attempt Hair Pieces

There are so many selections to choose from when it comes to women’s hairpieces. You can find styles ranging from medium to long length hairpieces, not to mention a variety of colors and textures. Toni Brattin carries a wide range of colors and styles that can make growing out short hair easier. You can opt for ponytails, hairclips, extensions or even wigs. In addition, hairpieces save your strands and scalp from damage, and the look can be changed daily.

Whichever hair piece you choose, make sure to follow the instructions on how to care for and maintain it. Using the proper shampoos or sprays will lengthen the life of your hairpiece or wig ensuring you receive the maximum use.

For additional ideas and motivation on how to overcome the boredom of growing out short hair, look through different magazines or books for styles you can emulate. Also, your stylist can be of use. Ask him or her for style suggestions that won’t damage your locks during the grow-out period.
