How long do you go?
Once I bumped into a friend and she said, "Your hair is getting so long!" And I said in reply, "So is yours!"
I tend to go a looooooooonng time between hair cuts. I probably get a hair cut every 9 months or so. I just can't justify the time, the 30-60 minutes away from the family, just to get my "hair done". Sure, I take plenty of 30-60 minute chunks of time away from the the family, but there are other things that are high up on my priority list, among the higher up things-to-do include running or going to the supermarket alone (so I can control those bills & comparison shop!). When I finally make it to a hair cut, I am ready for a change, a real new do. I got one of those go-all-out chop-it-all-off cuts just before the new year, and it was great for the first couple of months. Six months later, I'm no longer enamoured with the cut, but I'm probably going to wait a few more months until I really can't take it anymore. Or, maybe I'll get it cut sooner rather than later, and break this cycle of denying myself the hair cut because I can't justify the time/money commitment more frequently than once in a 9 month period!
How long do you go between cuts? Do you wait and push the envelope until you just. can't. take. it. anymore? Do you go at more regularly in shorter intervals? Does getting your hair cut fall in the higher or the lower end of the priority spectrum for you?
And in case this whole conversation gets you jazzed to get out for a new cut, be sure to check out previous recommendations on where to go.
