How to Grow Out Your Hair Faster

Will trimming your hair really make it reach new lengths? Here’s the long story, short.

After: Colleen Wheelahan

Stylist Rodney Cutler, owner of the Cutler/Redken Salons, agreed that Colleen’s hair lacked sophistication—and with her gamine features offering “so much potential,” why not go for it? After cropping her style into a modern-day Jean Seberg do, he had colorist Paola Veron transform Colleen into a platinum blond. The verdict? “I like the pixie-ness” says Colleen, though she admits the bold color has taken some getting used to. But since her roots will grow out in no time, she can easily go back to her natural brown if she likes while keeping the chic cut.

Best for: Heart-shaped faces; straight, thick hair.

Styling tip: For a tousled look, allow hair to air-dry, then work in Cutler Hair Care Specialist Fly-Away Control Stick ($23, dermstore.com), a wax-based balm that adds shine and separation, and muss top layers with your fingers.
