    Just got my haircut WAY to short and I need it to grow before school starts (monday 5th) Does it vary between everyone? Age is probably a huge factor so just to let you know I'm 16.

    Varies for people I think. I can't really say, in a quantity, how fast mine grows, but it's slower than others'.

    Depends on the individual.

    (Original post by Wikipedia)
    Human scalp hair normally grows at a rate of 0.4 mm /day (incidentally human scalp hair grow at a rate four times that of human nails. Human nails grow at a rate of 0.1 mm/day). It is commonly accepted that emotional distress, especially that caused by verbal abuse, etc. often is a contributing factor to a slower hair growth rate.

    Can't you wear a hat? Why did you get it cut so short?

    Hat's suck. I didn't mean to, I decided to go to a hair stylists I've never been to and asked for a 'trim' and he ended up cutting off way to much. I want to double what I currently have. My hair was much longer before and now I look like a dick.

    I'd say you've learnt from your mistake. Ride it out and people will forget about it in a week or so, if they really pay much attention to your new "do" in the first place.

    Why not behead yourself? Both the haircut and your awareness of it will disappear as if by magic.

    For most men it's about 5-8mm a week in summer and 3-6mm in winter.

    Given your specs, I'd estimate anywhere between 40 and 65 Km/h
