What's the Longest You've Gone Without a Haircut?

What's the Longest You've Gone Without a Haircut?

When it comes to getting a haircut, undoubtedly your stylist will tell you to return in anywhere from four to eight weeks, depending on your hair's length, style, and texture. Probably the longest I've gone in between cuts was about eight months or so, and that's when I was in college and practically penniless. Now, although it's a bit of a stretch to my wallet, I try to go about every six to eight weeks to keep my style in shape. My sister, on the other hand, makes her haircutting time a once-a-year kind of deal, thanks to her signature long, slightly layered style. Color (uh, cut) me jealous. What about you? What's the longest you've gone between haircutting appointments?

I try to get my hair cut every 2-3 months. I want to grow it, which I have been successfully. But as someone else said, I'm addicting to getting it cut. I don't feel as maintained if I try to wait over 3 months. My hair always feel wonderful and styles better afterward. After reading that some people go a year without it, I feel like I could go longer myself. :3

At the moment it's about 7 months to a year. This is the longest, because I'm so busy and broke from school. My usual is around 4 months.

I am addicted to getting my hair cut... and stylists love cutting my hair because I like to experiment with the cut and color. I like switching from my natural brown to blonde or red, so that requires some maintainence. Waiting a month is almost too long for me!

My hair really doesn't split, so I go maybe twice a year. I've actually gotten alot better about it. There was one point where I went over 2 years without it (college days suck). I just got it done the other day though, and before that it had been March.

I have to convince my stylist that I do appreciate her and how she cuts my hair because I wait so long between visits. I too have been growing my hair for about two and a half years because I want to make a wig for my momma, but I still try to get a trim every six to ten months.

although i LOVE getting a good haircut, i can usually, and usually DO, get only once yearly cuts. for a while i had a bob and i went every month or so, but then i grew it out. since i started growing it out two and a half years ago, i've gotten one real haircut. i'm obsessed with gaining length right now, and i want it really long, so that when i DO get it cut to add more style and shape, even if they take an inch or two off, it will still be really long and i won't be back to the "waiting to grow it out" phase

Two years, as I was growing out my hair. I had a pixie-style haircut, and I wanted long hair. Now my hair is in the middle of my back, and I love it. I plan on growing my hair down to my hip, so probably, it would be years before I have it trimmed again.

The longest...maybe 10 months when I first moved away from home. I usually get my hair trimmed when I get it highlighted. So maybe every 2-4 months now.

A year and a half for me...I need to get it cut, it hasn't been since I got married. I can't stand my ends anymore. I need some change.

Up until just the last couple of years I'd get a hair cut every year or so... now I go every 4-6 months.

because my hairdresser takes too much off the length and I've been desperately trying to grow it out....I'm gonna go as long as it takes to get longer hair w.out a trim

The longest for me was 8 months because I just couldn't afford it at the time, and my hair looked really bad because I didn't feel well and my body had decided to show it in everyway it could (skin, hair, weight...) but I usually went to the hairdresser once every 3 months, and now that one of my best friends is an at home hairdresser, I get my hair done every 1month and a half which helps with my highlights not growing out too fast :)
