Even if you get the best haircut in NYC, it’s important to know how to keep your hair healthy day-to-day, so the cut lasts. But there are so many tips and tricks for hair out there that it’s hard to know what to listen to. We’ve been in this business for a long time, so here are four of the biggest hair myths people ask us about, and our answers for you.
Myth 1: You should cut your hair every six weeks.
- There are so many types of hair cuts, so it should be no surprise that the time between salon visits should depend on the type of hairstyle you have. If you are rocking a shorter coif, then you might need to get your hair cut more often (less hair means changes in length or texture stand out sooner). But if you have longer hair, you can often wait anywhere from 8-12 weeks between cuts. If you aren’t sure whether it’s time to cut your hair, you can always go in for a consult. The best NYC stylists will be honest with you about whether it’s time for a trim, or whether you should wait it out a little bit longer.
