How often do you get your hair cut/colored?

The last time I had mine highlighted and cut was the beginning of February so it's been almost 4 months.  Yikes!   I'm getting it done today at 1 and I'm so excited!  My friend, who is also having her hair done today (we go to the same person for color) hasn't had hers done in a year!  How often do you get yours cut/colored? 


Re: How often do you get your hair cut/colored?

  • Hmm... probably every 8-12 weeks or so. As soon as I notice my roots. :)
  • About every 10 weeks or so

  • No more than 8 weeks between cuts.  Sometimes I can stretch the highlights out a little longer. 

    I'd like to go more frequently.  My highlights and cut take over 2.5 hours, so I just don't have the patience to sit there that long any more often than every two months.

  • Much longer than I should!
  • I hate waiting this long because it seems like the ends get more damaged and she has to cut so much more off :(  And of course the outgrown highlights aren't so attractive.  But it's not cheap and I agree that it takes a long time (my highlights usually take 2 hours, plus the cut).


  • I used to go every 6 weeks but that was getting too pricey.  Now, I go every 4 months..and the last 2 months of waiting just about kill me because I have sooo much gray hair!  I get my hair cut every 5-6 weeks though.
  • I get mine cut about every 8 weeks.  I get it highlighted/lowlighted every other time or more.  I couldn't go more than 8 weeks between cuts, my hair grows way too fast!  I do pretty subtle highlights/lowlights so they aren't as hard to keep up.
  • highlights every 8 weeks. I hate seeing dark roots! I usually get my hair cut every other appointment, so every 4 months or so.

  • Um - usually 3 to 4 times a year.  I do get lowlights, but since they are darker than my regular color, they aren't noticeable (or at least I don't think so) when they grow out.  And, I have been trying to grow my hair out for a while now but it grows so slllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooowly!

    I love my gal, but she is super pricey so it is probably a good thing I don't go more often!

  • Every 8-10 wks usually.  My hair grows fast.

  • I get mine cut and colored every 3-4 months. My guy is pretty pricey, so I put it off as long as possible!
  • When I had more "natural" looking highlights, I would go every 12-14 weeks.  Now that I have bolder "stripes" I have to go every 10 weeks coz the roots are more noticeable.

    Hair cut is twice a year.  I am growing it out for the wedding.  When I had a chin length bob, I would get it cut every highlight.

  • I don't get it colored very often, mainly because it's a huge waste of money on me.  I have pitch black on black hair that is hard to color and color does not last but just a couple of weeks.  As for getting it cut, I maybe cut it once a year or so, or whenever I grow it long enough to donate.
