Need to Know: How often should i have a haircut?Monday, January 8 2018
It may sound counterintuitive, but the trick to strong, healthy hair is getting it cut. But how often should you really be getting your hair cut?
How often should i have my hair cut?
To maintain a style and for an easy blow-dry between visits, cut your hair every 5–6 weeks for women. And men we’d love to see you every 3–4 weeks. Regular haircutting helps retain shape. Hair grows up to 1.25cm per month. This is often why we find clients who maintain their hair with regular trims have an easier time styling their hair as it hasn’t lost its shape or style.
Not all hair is created equal, however, If you naturally have very fine or very coarse hair, your locks could be more prone to breakage. Colour or heat style your hair regularly? You could need a trim on a more regular basis, as your hair is likely to be less healthy than uncoloured locks. Finer hair types benefit from regular cutting, as it helps keep the style sharp. Whether you have long, short curly or coloured hair, regular hair cuts will keep your hair looking its best.
So what if I’m growing my hair?
This also may seem counterintuitive but heavy hair with split ends simply won’t grow as well as freshly cut locks. If you’re trying to restore your hair to its former glory or simply growing it out we still recommend you have a cut every 8 weeks.
Hair Cut Myths:
‘I can tell if I’ve had a good haircut, my hairstyle lasts for months’
False – A haircut will last, but shape and style can change very quickly with 1–2 centimeters of length. That’s why most clients say ‘my hair was so easy to manage the first month’.
Does cutting hair make it grow faster?
False – The myth that cutting hair can make it grow faster persists because regular trims can improve the look and feel of hair. By trimming unhealthy split ends, hair will have less breakage and fly-aways, making it look thicker and shinier. Because hair breaks
less it will appear to grow longer in less time.
