Best tips and products for growing out a pixie

We've all had that Felicity moment where we decide to cut our hair super short — and then freak out, spending the next few years desperately trying to grow it back. Different cuts will, of course, grow in differently, and the pixie hair cut is a pretty intense process. 

Getting regular trims is important, for any cut and any style, if you want healthy hair that will grow and not split off. But after that, it's about embracing volume (and the shag!), and choosing the right products and styling tricks to help you along your journey. So if you're growing out a pixie, there are certain hair products you should use to continue looking fabulous.
