(Anyone who finished that title in song then I love you and will give you a hug when I see you.)
So let us talk haircuts and shaving, shall we?!
So first I would like to know how often do you get a haircut? Please include whether your hair is long or short, as this does make a difference in the length of time between cuts.
I will start…I have long hair and I get my hair cut twice a year.
GASP! WHAT?! You are suppose to get a haircut every 6 WEEKS not every 6 MONTHS.
Oops. My bad.
It is not like I plan that twice a year I will shamefully walk into the salon, horrible split ends and all, to get my hairs cut. It just kinda happens that way. I honestly do NOT think about getting my hair cut most of the year, oh yeah and I don’t want to spend $30-$40 each time either. I wear my hair pulled back 95% of the time so I really do not THINK…hey, you may need to cut those hairs. It isn’t until my hair has noticeably bad split ends, I have absolutely NO shape or style to my hair whatsoever, or there is a specific reason I want to get my hair cut that I actually think about getting it done.
So Jenn, do you have specific times during the year for your two cuts?
Good question and yes. Like I said, though I do not plan it, I usually want to get my hair cut around my birthday in April (I am sure you already knew my birth date) and in the fall before the holidays. I want to look even better than I already do around those times (it is hard, but possible). And the good thing is that it just so happens to work out because that would put my haircuts about 6 months apart! Perfect.
This past April when I got my hairs cut I tried to explain to my concerned hairdresser why I didn’t think it was that bad that I waited 6 months (sometimes longer) in-between haircuts. I explained that I only wash my hair twice a week, I use a soy leave-in conditioner after I wash my hair, I hardly use additional products in my hair, and I hardly ever dry my hair with a hair dryer or put heat to it. I felt she would understand and agree that I was doing the right thing. Instead she adamantly disagreed with my logic. Though I still find my logic to be very sound.
I know for healthier hair I should probably go more frequently to get a haircut, like 3 times a year, however I just don’t. I think until I find a style that needs maintained or I have shorter hair, I will not even think about getting a haircut….unless of course someone can give me a good reason like your hair will all fall out if you don’t get it cut more often! Until then, it is twice a year.
And as my title suggested, let’s have a quick conversation about shaving.
I HATE TO SHAVE.
Ok, not really…
I do not shave my legs every day and IF I shave them once a week, then it is a productive week.
I love the feeling of smooth legs but strongly dislike that stubble feeling a day or two after shaving. So my choice is either don’t shave very often to avoid stubble or shave every day for smooth. And as I hate taking time EVERY SINGLE DAY to shave, I just don’t. Plus, in the winter it is annoying because literally 10 seconds after getting out of the shower that stubble appears on my legs because of the cold…not worth it.
Twopretzels wrote a blog awhile back about how there is just SO much we do to maintain our appearance that it can be too much sometimes. And I agree. Not like I do too much already, but adding one more daily task just seems ridiculous. Something has to give, and sometimes that something is smooth legs. And really, who am I trying to impress….definitely not Terry.
So am I just being lazy by not shaving my legs everyday? Yes, I sort of am. But I also feel it is just A LOT to do on a daily basis.
So in summation…I only get my hair cut twice a year and I don’t shave my legs. Dude, I am SUCH a CATCH!
So how often do you get your hair cut and how often do you think you should you get your hair cut? And how often do you shave and do you feel the need to shave every day?
