Growing out a short cut can be a tricky business, not least because you need to be patient, accepting, and in possession of a decent stylist's phone number all at the same time. Whether you're starting with a buzz cut, a fade or something a little longer, you'll need to manage the whole growing out process carefully if you want to avoid an accidental mullet. Yes, they can happen.

1/ Pick a style to aim for

It's a good to have a goal in mind when you decide to grow your hair. Whether it's a lengthy Johnny Depp cut or a shorter, messier look, make sure you know what you're working towards.

2/ Be patient

On average, hair grows at a trundling rate of half an inch per month. There's nothing you can do to speed things up so settle in, it's going to take a while.

3/ Keep things tidy

As your hair gets longer, the edges of your style can become ragged. To keep everything under control, you should get regular trims to neaten up the sides. At the very least, make sure to visit a salon every 8 weeks.

4/ Stay in control

While growing toward your desired style, it's quite likely that your hair will start to behave strangely... or not at all. To maintain control, use a flexible, strong-hold product like L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty to smooth, sculpt and shape your hair. (Translation: beat it into submission.)

Ultimately, you should expect a few growing pains but just remember that it'll all be worth it when you look in the mirror and see your ideal long cut staring back at you.
