growing out hair

If you’ve ever done a permanent chemical process like a keratin treatment to your hair, you know how amazing it is for cutting your styling time to just minutes. But you also know how annoying your hair becomes once it starts growing out. When your roots start to come in, they’ll be a different texture than the rest of your hair, so what was once easy becomes extra trouble. And once you make the decision to stop the treatment, there’s the long and seemingly never ending process of growing your hair out. So how do you make sure chemically treated hair still looks great through the growing out phase? Click through to style notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

Paired with the pre-fall collections by Emanuel Ungaro (top left) and Marni (lower right) this style is a great way to stay ahead of the trends. The look feels both girlish and serious, and it’s a great way to downplay the—often unflattering—symmetry of the trending center part. You can dress this style up with an embellished pin or keep it casual with a simple tuck. Click the style notes for steps to creating the look. –– Laura Martin
