How often should I visit the barbers?

For guys who choose to visit the barbers best 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. On average we find that our clients visit us every 2-4 weeks.

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. If you have a short grade on top e.g. 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 their sides sharp. If so, go see your barber every 3 weeks to keep those back and sides looking smart.

Scissor Cut/ Medium Length Haircuts

As a rule of thumb, to maintain the overall shape of a scissor cut or a medium-length style, we recommend booking in once every 3-4 weeks.visit the barbers

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 that 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.
