How Often Should I Cut My Hair?

Written by

As far as a woman’s confidence goes, hair can and does make all the difference. Hair color, styles, cuts, and do’s say a lot about a person and can be a significant indicator of personality and style preferences. In fact, your hair can be your best accessory (or your worst). For many women, the thought of getting a hair cut is a painstaking process. Many women say they would rather switch Doctors than Hairdressers. First, you have to find that one trusted hair dresser who will actually listen to what you have to say when it comes to your desired look. And then, you have to turn over all control and allow him or her to take scissors to your locks.

The question is, how often should I cut my hair? Some women that normally keep their hair very short, a hair cut becomes a priority every 3-4 weeks when pieces start sticking misbehaving rather than doing what they are supposed to. But for most woman, when to get a hair cut is not so obvious.

If you have a short hair style that you love, chances are you will have to have your hair trimmed every 4-6 weeks in order to maintain the style. One of the biggest hair misconceptions is that short hair is easier to maintain. The truth is that when you have a shorter, distinct hair cut like a pixie, growing it out can be a frustrating experience and in order to keep it looking clean and well groomed, your hair will have to be cut more frequently. For those that have generally standard hair styles of shoulder length or long hair, the need for a hair cut can be delayed without compromising the overall look of your hair. When your hair gets too long, it is easy to simply pin it up or pull it back and still pull off that ‘put together’ look.

Most hairdressers recommend that their clients get a hair cut or at the very least,  a trim to remove dead ends every 6-8 weeks. This again, depends on the health of your hair and the rate at which it grows. For women who use a lot of chemical processing on their hair such as color, perms or straighteners, having your dead ends clipped every 6 weeks will keep your hair healthier in the long run. Once your hair has frazzled or dead ends, the hair sheath will continue to break up the length of the hair, which can require several inches being taken off if you wait to long in between hair cuts. With the common trend of high heat hair straighteners which undoubtedly damage hair at the ends quickly, keeping the ends of your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks ensures healthier hair.

Unfortunately, very few women actually follow this advice. It seems that the busier women get working outside the home, raising families and taking care of day to day to life – making time for a hair appointment has become a luxury. They say the average woman aged 25-37 admitted that they often go more than 4 months without getting a hair cut. One of the reasons was because they didn’t have the time. Another reason for waiting was because they were unhappy with their hairdresser while many others blame the dwindling economy on holding off on hair cuts for as long as possible.

Getting a hair cut doesn’t have to be painful, filled with anxiety, or expensive. The best general rule to follow when it comes to hair cuts is that once you notice hair damage, breakage or the inability to keep your hair styled properly you should visit a salon. If you haven’t found the perfect stylist, then ask someone whose hair you love who he or she uses and schedule an appointment with that stylist. The bottom line is your hair dresser at salon F  wants you to be excited about your hair and the way you look. This is why sometimes he or she will recommend cuts or services based on the ‘condition’ of your hair, your facial shape and your lifestyle.

In the end, the goal of a hair cut and style is to come away with healthy, vibrant hair. So, to answer the question, “How often should I cut my hair?” Make sure you get your hair cut at least every 6-8 weeks, is the best rule to follow.
