    It's what we all fear when we cut our hair: that we'll be super into it one minute, and the next, we'll be considering a weave because we want a longer style, and we want it now. Hair, why can't you just obey?!?

    Your hair grows at an average of a 3/4-inch per month, so that means you do, unfortunately, have to wait. There's also that weird stage where it's too long to be short and too short to be long, which brings the challenge of what to do with it then. Relax, the growth process doesn't have to be as painful as you think. Between styling techniques, the right tools, and a good maintenance schedule, there are plenty of ways to manage your mane in the meanwhile.

    We asked three top New York hair experts — Isabel Guillen, stylist at John Barrett Salon; James Pecis, consulting hairstylist for Beauty.com; and Michael Shaun Corby, global artistic director for Alterna Haircare — to give up best practices for burgeoning hair. For all of you in the process of cultivating a longer style, we salute you, and we're here to help. Here's how to do your 'do as you plot your next favorite hairstyle.
