For guys who choose the right barbers in London, they want to be there all the time. It becomes addictive because it’s our own kind of therapy and we have the chance to be pampered and pruned without anybody peering into our business or privacy. We get some ‘me’ time and nothing disrupts it except when it’s time to rise from the soft leather seat and march outside into the world with fresh confidence. However, there are times when you think to yourself, “How often should I be getting my haircut?” It’s a great question and one that a lot of clients ask our barbers. If you search online for the answer you might find yourself lost among an ocean of blog posts and articles attempting to nab your attention but in essence they tend not to directly deliver you an answer.
Particularly if you are trying to grow a big, bold beard – you need to resist the temptation to take it for a trim. There will be times throughout the growing pains period when it just feels itchy, scruffy and you want to pull it from its roots. You must maintain discipline and invest in some quality beard oil.
Back to your hair; this is the general rule of thumb:
Skin Fade or a Short Clipper Cut
If you want to keep that skin fade looking fresh, it does take a bit of maintenance. We advise visiting your barber every 1-2 weeks to get this cut. Some clients even visit us twice a week to get that skin-fade looking as sharp as possible for both the working week and the weekend.
If you have a short grade on top i.e. a grade 1,2,3 – again every 1-2 weeks will keep it looking clean.
Clippers back and sides
You might be growing the top out or fancy having a bit of extra length to style but still want to be keeping them sides sharp. If so, go see your barber every 3 weeks to keep the style looking smart.
As a rule of thumb, to maintain the overall shape of a scissor cut we recommend booking in once a month.
Get expert advice from your barber
Now, these rules should be applied generally and for specific instructions catered to your hair style and type, you should visit a great barbershop (of course, Pall Mall Barbers) and have a good chat with your barber. They will talk you through and guide you towards the light on the subject of when you should be coming in and how often you should return. Much can be taught and learnt in the barber chair that’s for sure.
The reason we take the consultative side of cutting hair so seriously is because we are more than just barbers, we are the artists and architects of your style, your face and your confidence. We combine science with art using our experience and expertise which dates all the way back to 1896 when we opened our first barbers in London. If you are wondering how often you should have a haircut or how many times per month you should visit the barbers, then why not walk into one of our many barbershops in London and have a chat with our friendly team – we are here to help.
Whether you need a classic, traditional service like a wet shave or a more modern hair style which needs intricately executing; we are ready to serve you. Take time out of your schedule to get your grooming routine up to scratch because if your hair and beard is on point then that’s one less thing you have to worry about. You already know you are looking the part, feeling the part so when you go for that next job, try to sell that next deal or seduce that next woman, you are prepared and ready to roll. That is what Pall Mall Barbers of London can bring to your life – are you in?
