These Awkward Stage Hair will blow your mind!

Weeks into quarantine and I couldn’t go to the hairdresser, I suddenly wanted to cut my bangs or do something to my hair – anything. Now I am so glad I didn’t.


Interesting enough, I wasn’t alone. A lot of my friends had the same experience so I realized, feeling restless during the awkward stage hair is actually normal. lol

Let me tell you how I distracted that evil thought… braids, buns, headbands and clips. They saved me from a bad haircut!

In case you’re in the awkward hair stage, I suggest you read on and check out tips below.

Change your part

Sometimes, there’s really nothing wrong with our hair. It may be that we are bored and want some change. The easiest way to shake things up is to change your part. It also hides the awkward hair growth somehow.

Switch from a middle part to one positioned to the left or right or change from one-sided part to a middle part.

Hair Pins

If you’re sooo close to cutting your own bangs, please pick up some hair pins and pin it away from your face for now. That way, you won’t have to always see it. Use some styling clay or gel, then secure the ends with a pretty barette or some hair pins/clips.


Braids are the best! You can learn one that’s easy and when you have one on you instantly look like you did a lot of effort.
