Want to join the Lady Godiva brigade with a fabulously luxuriant long mane, but worried about the transition phase(s)? Hair grows an average half-inch per month, but take heart, and remember why it's worth doing:
1. Long hair is classically beautiful
Though things have changed over the years, long hair is classically beautiful. One of the most prominent features of Pre-Raphealite art are the beautiful women with ultra, long wavy hair. If you're looking for a style that exudes old romance and pure femininity, you couldn't go wrong with long hair!
2. Long locks are right on trend and hugely versatile
A well-tended long mane lengthens the silhouette of your body and is always in fashion. You'll be spoilt for choice with styles to suit your face shape and hair texture. Dress it up, dress it down, braid it, sport a ponytail, a chignon, a bun, a French twist or even a beehive! And you can wear all the beautiful hair accessories you want – maybe not all at once, though.
3. Save time and money with less trips to the salon
Tell your stylist you're growing your hair and insist on the bare minimum of trimming – just enough to keep nasty split ends at bay. Plus, each length of hair you achieve is an excuse to try a whole series of new styles. Experimenting will be so much fun, you'll forget that you're waiting for your hair to grow.
