- Q- When parting your hair on the opposite side to grow out an undercut, how do you ensure it stays in place all day?
A - The main thing here is to get your new parting in place when your hair is wet. Use the normal products you would use and blow dry (at least the top section of your hair) into place. The heat from the hairdryer and a little bit of hairspray will keep your hair in check.
- Q- Do you get the urge to shave it off again?
A - Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. But don’t. If you are serious about growing back your shaved side, you have to be patient. I know your hair may be at it’s best when it is freshly shaved and looking hawwwt, but once you get passed the one inch mark, you won’t want to turn back. You’ve come so far, well done!
- Q- Do people comment on your assymetrical look much when you’re in the process of growing your undercut out?
A - Surprisingly not. I used to get a lot of compliments on my shaved undercut before I started growing it out, but I’ve also got compliments since I started parting my hair in a different place to grow it out!
- Q - Do you regret shaving off your hair?
A - I don’t regret having a shaved head when I did it. It looked really cool, and I would love to be able to flip between having a shaved head and having really long, luscious Rapunzel hair...but I know that’s not feasible. However, I would rather not go through this long-ish process of growing it out. I do find that the hairstyles I can do at the moment are a bit limited, but I have found simple hairstyles I can do (like a loose ponytail) which cover the growth and look sleek.
- Q - Any general points or tips?
A - Get your hair in good condition. Using a heat spray will make sure that the hair that grows back is healthy and not forming split ends. Doing loose curls in your hair adds texture and makes the regrowth look less prominent too. Make sure to use heat protection spray and a little bit of hairspray to keep your short hair where it’s supposed to be.
