How Often do I Need a Haircut?
When to get your hair cut will depend on variables ranging from the texture of your hair to the style itself. Each individual’s hair grows at its own particular rate and someone with coarse curls will need a different schedule than someone with fine or damaged hair. The following are some guidelines to help you keep your hair looking healthy and your style sharp.
One of the best things about a bob is that it grows out in clean lines and the same is true of lobs. You can easily go six weeks between cuts.
If your mane has been damaged due to heat styling, coloring or chemical processing, have it cut every four weeks. Your stylist can assist you with information and products to help your hair back to health and regular cuts will eventually erase the damage.
Dense, Coarse and Curly
Anyone with kinky or tightly curly hair that tends to make spirals should plan on having their locks cut about every 12 weeks. Within that time frame you’ll begin to see split ends and knots form. To maintain your current style, have about ¼ inch removed during each visit. The same is true if you’re trying to grow out your hair or if you have virgin hair that’s never been colored or exposed to hot styling tools.
Fine and Medium Curls
Going in for a trim every 2-3 months is a good rule-of-thumb if your hair is fine or medium textured and curly. Anyone with curly hair should be aware that too much length can make curls appear stretched, stringy, and bedraggled.
Whether it’s straight or wavy, you can schedule a haircut every 8-12 weeks – assuming that you take good care of it between cuts. That means minimizing heat damage from styling tools and ensuring your hair is well moisturized. If your long hair is fine, plan on getting a cut every 4-6 weeks.
Long, layered hair should be trimmed every 6-8 weeks. It will enable you to continue to grow your hair out if you desire, while maintaining the shorter lengths that frame your face.
Lots of Layers
When your hair is cut in layers, it goes through several transitions. The first week, the layers will appear more textured and by the fourth week it will have a sexy, lived-in appearance. If you let it go until the eighth week, locks will take on a ragged look. It’s best to have it cut at the six-week mark.
If you want to keep your short style for any length of time, you’ll need to have your mane cropped every four weeks. That’s true for a pixie, bowl, and similar styles to keep it tight and controllable.
