How to Grow Out an Undercut: 3 Hairstyles to Hide the Shave
Cover up the awkward teen years of your undercut.
It has been a solid few months since I decided to shave an undercut into my long hair. And in that time I’ve learned that my hair grows much faster than I anticipated, which means that my fiancé has had to shave my undercut pretty much every other weekend. It was a lot to put up with! Which lead to my decision to grow out an undercut before chopping my hair into a lob around the summer. For this in-between stage, I’ve mastered a few hairstyling tips that carefully conceal my hair that’s growing out underneath. Read on to check out how to grow out an undercut smoothly with these styles:
How to Grow Out an Undercut
1. Dutch Braid Updo
All three of these styles are intended to cover the now two-ish inches of grown out undercut that’s at the nape of my neck. This first style is my favorite for days when I’m doing an oily hair mask. I’ll put a little bit of coconut oil over the ends of my hair. I then create a part down the center 0f my hair and do a dutch braid pigtail on each side. To cover my undercut, I pin the braids over the nape of my neck.
2. Princess Roll
For an elegant, ’50s inspired hairstyle, I love the princess roll. Aided by an elastic headband, this hairstyle only takes a few minutes to do. And, it’s particularly great for second or third-day hair! I just refresh my roots with a little bit of Dove Refresh+Care Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo. Then I place a headband over my hair and loop around the ends until I get this pretty rolled look.
3. Low Ponytail
For the easiest style of them all, I do love a good low ponytail. To make sure a low pony covers up an undercut, secure the hair tie right below where the undercut ends. Then jazz it up with a hair ribbon! This simple style only takes a minute and is great for lazy hair days. Finish the look with TRESemmé Volume Thickening Spray to keep the style in place and give it a little more oomph.
With these foolproof hairstyles, you’ll never stress about how to grow out an undercut and hide the evidence of your shave!
