How Often Do You Get Highlights?

A few years ago when I got regular highlights, (which slowly but surely transformed me into a blonde), I'd go every four to five weeks to keep the roots from showing. This way my hair always looked, fresh and naturally sun-kissed. It became quite a costly and time-consuming commitment, but I really loved the way it looked. Most of you told me that you get haircuts every few months, but how often do you get highlights?

I get my hair retouched every 4-8 weeks cause I have such noticeable chunks, they have to be touched up :)

never - I am a strawberry blonde so if I want highlights I just go out in the sun for a little while.

I really don't care for highlights. They tend to look fake, even when they're the more "natural" looking ones. thankfully for me, my hair takes on natural highlights so I don't have have to worry about it.

When I had them I used to rehighlight them every few months but now dyed it all one colour(red) which is sooo in now too ;-)

I think highlights are tacky and rarely do they turn out chic.

I used to get highlights every Spring/Summer, but I think my hair actually looks healthier without them. So, I just let the sun do it's work to give me some natural lightness. Plus, it's cheaper..haha

I have blond hair but I still like to get highlights about every 8 weeks. Goes great with curly hair.

I had highlights only once before and I HATED them. I had gross striped on my head. So I refused for a long time. Then my friends mom convinced me to let her try some on me. I just got it a couple weeks ago and I love it. It's not obvious, it's just pretty and shiny. And my hair is curly so it looks neat and blends well.

How random, I just got some today for the first time in five years! I accidentally dyed my hair a shade too dark about a month ago, and instead of stripping the color, my stylist suggested highlights instead to brighten it up a bit. They look great....and I think I will try to keep them up, maybe even lighten my hair overall. I have very dark brown hair, which I love, but the stylist was like, "you know you'd look great with blonde hair too, right?" even though she said she also prefers dark hair. I think I am interested enough to give it a try to do something new. I'm guessing it's going to take 6 months of getting highlights every 4 weeks to get it there, does anyone know? Right now I have dark brown hair with lighter brown highlights...

I home dye my hair pretty much whenever the mood strikes me. If I do highlights, I only do them in the long part of my hair which is my bangs.

I used to just get highlights. Now I am just blonde. Every 3 mos or so, I get a few highlights thrown in or lowlights just so it isn't one solid color.

I have highlighted in the past and it does such a number on my hair I just don't do it anymore. My hair gets so damaged. I am naturally a medium to dark brunette so I was getting a few caramel highlights and although it looked nice for about a hair just doesn't like them. So, I stopped! I stick with a nice rich chocolate brown now.

I had them a couple of years ago, but I have chocolatety brown hair, then "wore out" and looked brassy. It took a year and a half to grow out.

I got them once and I really liked it but then I started completely dying my hair so I stopped. If I ever actually stay at my natural hair color anytime soon I'll probably start doing it again.

I have dark blonde hair, so they add a lighter shade of blonde, but I naturally have strawberry blonde highlights even without going in the sun. It's weird.
