How Long Should You Go Between Haircuts?

A lot of clients ask how long they should go between haircuts. It’s probably one of the most common questions we receive here at the salon when we are checking out a client. While there is no one size fits all type of answer, the type of hair, and your go-to hairstyle actually have the most to do when knowing how long to go between cuts. Here’s a few broadline examples:

Going 4 (four) weeks between haircuts:

Women: Short hair, pixie cuts, or those who feel like their hair loses their shape easily.

Men: 3 to 4 weeks is the general time most men go between haircuts. This is because, on average here at TRIM NuLu, the men we see have shorter hair. 3 to 4 weeks will keep most men’s hair trimmed and tidy.

Going 6 (six) weeks between haircuts:

6 weeks maintenance is more for medium length, to keep the ends healthy and not let it get too long while still maintaining shape.

Going 8 (eight) weeks or longer between haircuts:

We recommend this time frame for individuals who have long hair and are wanting to maintain their length or grow it out whole keeping the ends look healthy. 

Pro Tip for Healthy Hair

Many people make the mistake of not getting their hair cut regularly when they’re trying to grow their hair out. Trimming damaged ends is a must because your hair looks healthier, feel healthier, and is just easier to manage.

Does Cutting Your Hair Make It Grow Faster?

Cutting your hair makes is grow faster? It’s a common myth that regular haircuts can make your hair grow faster. Here’s the truth: Regular haircuts do not make your hair grow faster. Rather, regular trims prevent your hair from suffering breakage and split ends that make your hair appear to grow slower.
