Determining how often you need to get a haircut depends upon the type of cut and style you are getting. Most guys like to get their hair cut – you are feeling clean, fresh, fashionable and confident after leaving the barbershop. Unfortunately, every week, not all men can afford to cut their hair. Here is our guide to determining a man should cut his hair, how long you can go haircuts and when to see your barber save you guys time and money!
How Often Should You Get A Haircut?
Whether or not you should get a haircut comes down to how fast your hair grows and the sort of hairstyle you are styling. Hair grows at an average speed of about 1/2 inches each month, and this number depends on your genetics, hair type, and lifestyle. Your hair is growing at its maximum rate if you are healthy. If you have a bad diet, lack exercise, have high-stress levels or are experiencing hair loss, growth can be slower. How quickly your hair grows combined with your hairstyle makes all of the difference.
A half an inch of hair growth in your sides that are faded can throw off your short haircut. If you have a traditional taper on the sides using a cut top, then a bit longer hair won’t be noticeable.
In general, how frequently you should be getting your haircut comes down to budget hair length, and style. For short men’s haircuts, we recommend once a month. And for long hair, you can get a cut after every 3 to 6 weeks. Just do not forget that your grin or undercut is going to look messy faster so seeing your barber or stylist get a quick trim to maintain your appearance is always worthwhile.
Lastly, when it comes to big events like a wedding, a job interview, birthday, or special date, most barbers recommend a haircut a few days earlier. This buffer allows your own hair to settle along with the cut, enabling you to design everything better.
As soon as you’ve decided to get a haircut, you may begin procrastinating if you’re not sure how to speak with your barber. Some guys feel uncomfortable asking for a particular haircut since they don’t know the hair that is the right language, and this makes them nervous. We have a guide for that.
Nevertheless, the easiest way to get the cut is to show your stylist a picture and ask for their advice.
