A: You need to go to the hairdresser several times per year. How often you
get it cut will depend on your budget and of course on the style of your hair.
A short haircut will stay in style for a maximum of 4 weeks. When your
hair is medium length you should go to the hairdresser about every 5
weeks. If you have long hair you'll need a trim every 6 weeks to avoid
Of course these are just averages. Depending on the condition (= health)
of your hair you'll need more or less visits to the hair salon.
When you are letting your hair grow out you still need to go to the
hairdresser once in a while, at least once in 8 weeks. It is not because
you want to have long hair that you don't need to get it trimmed once in
a while to keep it healthy (split ends!) and to avoid that it starts looking awful.
A perm will last for one to three months. In exceptional cases it will last for a year.
