If you have had short hair for a while now and want to grow your hair long, you know just how hard that can be. At some point, your patience is going to wear thin and you are going to get to that awkward phase. You know the one – where you just cannot style it right and you begin to wonder if you should just chop it off and go with a cute pixie.
Well, with the help of your favorite stylist at Special Fx Salon, you don’t have to worry about that awkward phase. Your stylist will give you tips on the best way to style your hair at each phase until you get to the length you want. Our stylists have shared some pro tips to help you along the way.
Routine haircuts. No, we haven’t forgotten the goal is to let your hair grow out. Regular trims will help your hair grow out in two ways. First, they prevent split ends which control frizz so your hair looks healthy and manageable while you are growing it out. Secondly, regular trims by your expert stylist will ensure that your hair is perfectly shaped at each stage of its growing out phase, making it easier to style. With regular trims, you’ll never have that frustration of not being able to style it right.
Professional conditioning treatments. When your hair is dry and damaged it’s prone to breakage. Keeping it conditioned and healthy is the only way you’re going to get it grown out to the length you want. Monthly in-salon deep conditioning treatments will get not only make your hair silky-soft and manageable but also makes your hair stronger with less breakage. At Special FX Salon, we use Pureology and Redken products for deep conditioning to get your hair as healthy as it can so it will grow quicker.

Your stylist will help you determine which of our professional home care products are right for you.
