How often do people with long hair get haircut?
For people with long hair, ideally 6 to 8 inches, how often do you get it trimmed and what do you tell your barber?

A good frequency for hair trimming is once a month for long hair men.
A good frequency of trimming long hair is once a month. That is only and once you've reached your hair length, as you must not get your hair trimmed while growing your hair long!

The average hair growth of a healthy male is half an inch per month. So if your hair is 8 inches long and you're happy with its current length, then you will only have an extra half of an inch by the time you go to the barber for your periodic hair trimming session. Half an inch on 8 inches of hair length is barely noticeable, so it won't affect your hair's aesthetics.

Another reason to get a hair trim once every month is because most hairdressers tend to be too "trimmer happy" and thus tend to trim more than you've told them to trim. Hence, that extra half inch of hair length that you've grown in a month will cushion any excess trimming that your barber may perform.

To get a hair trim, simply tell your barber the length hat you want to have trimmed. Grab a lock of your own hair and then shown him (by pointing at the lock) where you want him to trim the hair. It's good that you tell him to please be careful as you do not want any extra hair length trimmed than what you've told him! Smile
