Q: I got a terrible haircut. How long will it take to grow out and what can I do in the meantime to disguise it?

A: It's hard to say exactly how long it will take to grow out -- that really depends on the length and any layers that were added. Generally speaking, it could take anywhere from two to four months.

But before you head into hair hibernation, know that there a few things you can do to get through the grow out. The first is bobby pins. They easily tuck into the hair to help camouflage unwanted bangs and uneven layers.

Headbands also work in the same way, elegantly disguising uneven layers, lengths, and bangs.

You can also try switching your part, especially if the cut left one side of the hair longer than the other.

Another option? Pulling it back into a ponytail. We've got plenty of expert options in the gallery, below.
