Your hair grows about 1 cm each month, so you’ve got some time to totally rock your short style! Make the most of it with this guide to the grow-out thanks to our hairy partner Sustainable Salons.

Co-founder and hairdresser Paul Frasca is here to take you on the three-month journey.

Month 1

In the first month of growing out your buzz cut, you’ll want to keep an eye on the perimeter. The golden rule is to stick to a short back and sides while letting the top start to get some length.

I recommend not trying to grow it all out the same length before you get a haircut…that’s not a look you want to go for, trust me.

Towards the end of the first month, you can try out a new colour or get amongst the fades action! After all, your head is a blank canvas now!

Month 2

You’ll have some nice growth happening by now, which means it’s time for shape. This is where you’ll probably start to arrive back to your regular style.

So, get yourself along to your barber or hairdresser and have some fun!

Month 3

At Month 3, you’ll be firmly on the path to figuring out exactly how you like to style your new 'do!

If you’re thinking of keeping a shorter hairstyle around for a while, head back to your barber or hairdresser every 4-6 weeks for a reshape.

If you’re eager to keep progressing with the length, chat to your barber or hairdresser instead about how to get through the in-between stages…a tailor-made plan just for you is the best action here.
