How Often Should I Visit The Barber Shop?

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

For guys who choose the right barbers in Bolton, 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 common question and one that a lot of clients ask.

On average, my clients visit me every 2-4 weeks, some of them every week. This is the general rules to keep looking funky fresh:

Skin Fade or a Short Clipper Cut If you want to keep that skin fade looking fresh, it does take a bit of upkeep. I 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 fresh and sharp.

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 them sides sharp. If so, go see me every 3 weeks to keep those back and sides looking tight and clean.

Scissor Cut/ Medium Length Haircuts From a professional and experienced opinion, to maintain the overall shape of a scissor cut or a medium-length style, I recommend visiting once every 3-4 weeks.

Get expert advice Now, these rules should be applied generally and for specific instructions catered to your hairstyle and type, you should visit a great barbershop near you (of course, Craig's Barber Shop) and have a good chat with me, I 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 learned in the barber chair that’s for sure.

The reason I take the consultative side of cutting hair so seriously is that we are more than just barbers, we are the artists, architects of your style, councilors, and psychologist. We combine science with art using our experience and expertise which dates all the way back to 2004 when I first started cutting hair in Bolton. 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 Craig's Barber Shop in Bolton and have a chat with myself – I'm are here to help.

Whether you need a classic, traditional service like a wet shave or a more modern hairstyle that needs intricately executing; I'm here ready to serve you. Take time out of your schedule to get your grooming routine up to scratch because if your hair and beard are on point then that’s one less thing you have to worry about. You already know you are looking the part, feeling the part so when you go for that next job, try to sell that next deal or seduce that next woman, you are prepared and ready to roll. That is what Craig's Barber Shop of Bolton can bring to your life – are you in?
