Stage 1 – Pixie to Short Bob – Growth process: three months

from pixie to bob

How long ago did you get your Pixie cut? A day?


Girl, you’re too impatient and not enjoying things. If you just got a Pixie cut, the least you can do is enjoy the possibilities your new look has to offer.

 So, go out and enjoy your new cut. Let the world discover the bold woman that lives in you! 


However, when that newfound joy starts to fade, it’s time to face the truth: your Pixie cut won’t grow out overnight.

And for it to grow out into a short bob, it’ll need some time. How much? To be precise, around three months.

I’m not just saying this. I’ll give you proof and reasons for that.


Let’s see. Hair grows between 0.4 and 0.5 millimeters per day.

If we multiply the daily growth rate by the 7 days of a week, it would be 3 millimeters per week. It brings us to a monthly growth process of 1 to 1.5 centimeters.

After three months, your hair will be closer to a short bob cut because it’ll have longer layers than a Pixie, but not straight ones like a Bob.

You’ll love it if your face is round-shaped because it’ll help narrow your features.


You have to be patient and cunning. At times, you may feel discouraged when it comes to taming your hair, and you may be tempted to reach for the scissors.

However, get a grip! The long bob awaits you like the light at the end of the tunnel.


 At this stage, you can wear a Pixie with bangs on the side or play with different elements to create optical effects for a short Bob feel. 

One of them is the fringe. It gives more strength to the look. The shorter the fringe is, the longer the other layers will seem. Hence, a Pixie with a slightly side-swept fringe is a good option.


avoid the haircut from turning ugly

You can also create new hairstyles, such as a side parting at 2.5 to 5 cm from the center or a deep side parting at 5 to 10 cm.

At this point, headbands, tiaras, and barrettes are your best allies. If you have curly or wavy hair, you can flat iron your bangs to shape them.


All these recommendations have to do with styling. They’ll make you feel more comfortable while your Pixie cut grows into a bob.


You should also take care of your hair at all stages so that it grows out strong and healthy.

You should follow a strict hair maintenance routine for as long as your Pixie cut takes to grow out into a long bob.


  • Use conditioner every time you wash your hair. Its lipids and proteins will make your hair healthier. If it’s healthier, it’ll grow faster. Apply conditioner from root to tip, leave it on for 2-5 minutes, and rinse thoroughly with cool water.
  • Also, the conditioner seals the cuticle to prevent it from dehydrating.


Now, you’ve reached that long-awaited moment after six months, where your Pixie cut is now a medium bob cut.

Cheer up! You’re halfway there.


Stage 2 – Short Bob to Medium Bob – Approximate growth process: three months

It took six months for your Pixie cut to grow out into a medium bob. Was it worth it?

Here’s where you need to resist all temptation.  Hide the scissors. If you’re out for a walk and go by your favorite stylist’s salon, take a detour.  Avoid any path that leads you to cut your hair!


Also, you can do a myriad of hairstyles during this stage. Do you want some ideas?

  • Style your hair close to the scalp with a little bit of gel
  • If you want to get excited about the length of your hair, go for hair extensions
  • Play with updos to surprise your co-workers
  • Release your hair and relax

Anything goes to give this medium bob a light look.


Stage 3 – Medium to Long Bob – Estimated growth process: six months

Get ready to party! After a year, your old Pixie cut has grown out to a Bob and is looking enviably long.

You can play with your hair however you like.

For example, you can choose a fringe, which looks especially good on a long bob.[/su_highlight]


You can also choose an ultra-short micro fringe or a long fringe up to your eyes. Curtain bangs also look great with shoulder-length bobs.

The long bob is a functional style. It looks great on all women regardless of their hair type, face shape, or style.



The time it takes to grow out a Pixie to a long Bob is between 12 and 14 months. Although you need patience and willpower, you can go through it with creativity and good humor.


Remember that, during the growing out process, you should keep your hair hydrated, and trim the ends regularly. You can also add some vitamins to promote hair growth.

Now tell me, how do you imagine your transition from a Pixie cut to a long bob?
