Cutting long hair short is quick and easy. The same hardly applies to the transition from short to long hair. On the contrary, patience and styling skills are of the essence if you want to make this without losing a fashion beat. Having the proper styling skills and tools definitely helps to bridge the gap between creativity and styling success. Agyness Deyn demonstrates how creative and stylish the transitions can be

  • Agyness Deyn made her breakthrough wearing a platinum blonde pixie haircut. The sassy haircut certainly got her noticed. She turned her lucky break into a successful modelling career and soon, her particular style of pixie became a household name as 'the aggy'. Recently, she decided that it was time to part with the old and her signature haircut. After all, successful models represent the fashions and styles of our time. With the patience and skill of the true professional she made the best out of every transitional step. Meanwhile, her hair has grown long enough for a stylish long bob.

    In our photo gallery, we show how Agyness Deyn met the styling challenges during the transition from pixie to long bob.

    With the exception of bleached hair ends, Agyness Deyn’s hair had its natural colour in October of 2010. In the style reminiscent of Iroquois warriors, her side hair is razor short. In preparation for war, young Iroquois styled a narrow strip of hair upward from the front to the back. By contrast, Agyness Deyn combed her long peak of top hair forward into her forehead.

    Styling: Distribute a pea-sized dollop of hair gel in the palms of your hands. Then use your hands to stroke your longer top hair forward into the forehead

    In November 2011, Agyness Deyn’s hair had grown long enough for a page boy haircut. Once again, she coloured her hair platinum blonde. She allowed her front hair to fall across the forehead starting from the straight side parting. The front hair then merged with the side hair opposite the parting. The sleek styling looks soft and feminine.

  • Transitional Hairstyles: Tips and Tricks

    Agyness Deyn made the best of every transitional hairstyle. Dependent on the relative lengths of different portions of her hair, she adapted her hairstyles and created variety in styles and hair colour. This made her transitions from sassy pixie to long bob seamless. A few styling skills, creativity, and playfulness will make it easy to express style and fashion sense along the way to longer hair.

You can assist healthy hair growth with tender loving care. Take care of your scalp with conditioning treatments and rinses and treat your scalp to a massage every once in a while. Healthy hair growth will be your reward.
