Hair Trim or Hair Cut

Do you need to trim or cut your hair?

It’s summertime & if you have long hair until now, they must have been exposed to the elements that damage them, largely the sun, saltwater & humidity. These elements can be pretty harsh on your hair types & you might have started thinking whether you need to trim or cut your hair!

The best way to start is to have a consultation with your stylist before you decide anything. Then, ask yourself some questions:

Are you happy with your cut’s general shape & style but need a refresh or some split ends removed? Then, a hair trim may be your best bet!

On the flip side, do you have a college reunion coming up? Date with someone new? Starting a new job? Maybe a new cut & style will add a little extra confidence into the mix.

Regardless of whether you have long, medium, or short hair, we should all get our hairstyle consistently to keep it looking amazing. At this point, the real question is, what type of change would be most suitable for your hair? This leads us to discuss the disparity between trim & a proper haircut.

What is hair trim Vs. Haircut exactly?

The significant disparity between a haircut & hair trim is that trimming is practiced between the hair to get rid of split ends & maintain your current hairstyle.

Trims do not include hairstyle change; they are simply a sort of hair maintenance. It’s completely about cutting off just the correct amount of hair required to be healthy while not compromising the overall hairstyle.

Usually, if a client walks into a hair salon & asks for a hair trim service, they do not want to walk out with a strange hairstyle. Instead, they want to look the same as they were when entering the salon or maybe just a little bit neater.

On the other hand, if you have a university reunion coming up? Date with someone new? Starting a new job? Maybe a new cut & style will add a little extra confidence into the mix.

That can also be quite a dramatic transformation & it might be suggested for those who have severely damaged hair. However, this would not be counted as a ‘trim.’

Summing Up

Should I cut or trim & how frequently do I have to trim or cut my hair?

It’s totally your choice & moreover, choosing between hair cutting & trimming depends on your hair type & your preference. If you have short trimmed hair, getting a trim haircut every four to six weeks is recommended. Of course, some may necessitate it more often than others. Remember, you still need customary regular trims. If you have long hair, it does not mean you should dodge the hairstylist for a very long period.
