“Oh, about six weeks? I’ve lost track,” I’ve said countless times. In reality, it’s been a lot closer to six months. They know. I know they know. We both proceed on awkwardly.
Getting your hair done can be a costly exercise, so it’s not something you really want to be doing too frequently, but how often should you really be getting your hair cut? And is the “six week rule” really a thing?
According to Edwards and Co‘s Byron Turnbull, there’s not a one size fits all answer.
“It totally all depends on your hair and the style your stylist has cut in. I personally recommend my female clients with short to medium-length hair every five weeks,” he explains.
This is due to the high maintanence of the length.
“Generally you’re working off the round/shape of the hair when dealing with short hair, so this makes it really obvious when it starts to grow out,” he says.
For those with medium to long hair, Turnbull says you can leave it between two to three months. (Post continues after gallery.)
