Growing hair help!
Hi all,

I am attempting to grow my hair out while maintaining a professional look, since I work in the world of corporate business. The last couple haircuts I got, I asked the stylist to keep it long on top… Basically not touch the top… And trim up the sides and clean up the edges and sideburns etc. The last cut I got, the guy went a little short on the sides to the point where I basically had the hipster kind of long on top short on sides. The ideal look I am going for down the road is long hair past my jaw line right to about my shoulders. I just don't know how to get there without looking messy or having the sides of my hair look all feathery and sloppy. I'm ok with the long on top because I can slick it back. It's just the hair around the sides and in the back that is giving me trouble. My question to you is, can I continue to grow the top out and keep the sides and back trimmed? Will I eventually get to the same place? Or do I need to just go through the awkward phase and let the sides and back grow? Just keep in mind, I need to keep that professional look because it is my company policy. I'm trying to figure out a way to get around that and grow my hair out and still look professional. If you were me, what would you tell the barber to do at my next cut?

Also on another completely different note… I've always wondered what it would be like to perm my hair? Not the type with small curls, but more the way the big curly locks. Have any of you guys ever tried perming your hair with the chemical stuff? Does it work? Does it look good? Thoughts?

Thank you so so much for your help and advice!

RE: Growing hair help!
You can grow out top whilst shaving sides. I shave my sides every 3-4 weeks on 3 milimeter guard. My hair on top is about 10 cm long and slicked back while going to the side a little.
Do you want undercut on the sides,or just trim them up every once in a while?
