While it may seem counterintuitive, cutting your hair is actually one of the best ways to get it looking fuller and healthier. Leaving split ends to take over your tresses is a recipe for disaster, so make an appointment at Salon Antoine to freshen up your look!

How Often Should You Cut Your Hair?

To keep your hair stunning crowds, it’s important to give it life with a cut. Those with textured hair should come to the salon around every two to three months for a trimming. Doing so will help prevent unwanted breakage from dulling your appearance. Do you prefer keeping your locks in a stylish pixie cut? If so, we recommend that you get the ends done in shorter intervals — usually three to four weeks after your last visit. For longer, non-textured hair, the estimation varies based on how quickly your tresses grow. Though, for an approximate number, every two to three months can be a reliable schedule to follow.

Does Cutting Your Hair Often Stimulate Growth?

The age-old question often discussed with those looking to rock the summer with long hair — will cutting it make the locks grow faster? Well, we’re here to put this rumor to rest. No, trimming your tresses is not a way to stimulate growth. Though, this doesn’t mean you should put the phone down and cancel your appointment. Chopping off dead ends is still a vital way to have healthier hair. While it may not help you grow hair faster, it does give a thicker look to their appearance. When split ends take over, you’ll end up with locks that look shorter than they really are. Since your tresses grow from the root, trimming the ends won’t affect how quickly it lengthens. It will, however, allow for a fuller appearance due to a lack of dead ends.
