I've grown my hair out from a crop to shoulder length in the past year, so I know how frustrating it is! I tried to wear lots of pretty clips and hairbands - helps to pin up any unusual straggly bits and make hair look more interesting if you can't do much with it :-). I never tried proper hair extensions, but Babyliss do a fake bun that you can add when you tie your hair back to make it look a bit different.

I used sea kelp when I wanted my hair to grow! Makes it very shiney and healthy too. Maybe try having hair extensions as that will make you feel Like you have a new 'do' so you won't feel the urg to cut your hair off!
