My name is Jacqueline Bush and I'm an editorial in celebrity hairstyles. My clientele has included Faith Hill, Mark Ruffalo, Terrance Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jane Krakowski. I want to be able to show you that hair isn't as intimidating or as hard as you think it is and I want you be able to have fun with it and do what your vision is with your hair. OK, how to grow out a bad haircut, guys. This is my advice, its just coming from me, other stylists might feel differently. But in my experience, the number one best way to grow out a bad haircut is, if you can, just let it grow until you have enough length to cut something new in it. The other thing that you can do is go to your stylist and have them texturize it in a certain way that's going to blend it a little more. The only piece of advice I would give with is number one, if this is a new stylist that gave you that cut, I wouldn't go back to the same stylist. If it's a stylist that you've been working with for a long time and you have confidence understands your hair, trust them enough to give you enough texture. The thing is, texturizing your hair is different than necessarily taking off length and that is the most important factor is that your stylist needs to understand the difference of texturizing and taking out weight, blending a cut, rather than just cutting more length off so you end up with an even shorter cut. If you're just to scared to do any of that, don't worry if you have to grow out your hair a year, grow it out a year. I don't believe that split ends just keeping splitting up and then you won't have any more hair. In my experience that's not true and I've done that myself. I grew out my hair a year and a half after a cut that I didn't like and it grew, and when I was ready I cut it and got the style I want cut into it
