- Great Haircuts vs. Good Haircuts
Most people don’t really know the difference between “just a good haircut” and a great haircut. And there’s little wonder why that's the case. The reason is because...
...nobody has ever explained it to them! So, here goes…
There are two reasons most experts would agree on.
1. The cut itself must compliment your personality and face shape. For example: Remember Jennifer Aniston's cut? That was a great haircut because it complimented her specific facial characteristics. The cut would not have looked as good on Angelina Jolie.
2. A great haircut looks good even as it grows out. In other words, it should look great between services. Hair grows at a rate of 1/8” per week. Cutting the hair every 4-6 weeks maintains its shape and placement.
Typically, if hair is not at least “trimmed” every 8-10 weeks, it will begin to split at the ends and break. When this happens (and is left unattended), these ends will continue to split up the hair shaft, causing damage - damage that you cannot repair!
Another thing (that might not make sense to the average person) is cutting the hair actually makes it grow faster and healthier. So, don’t make the mistake of letting your hair “grow out,” thinking that you’re making it healthier. Healthy hair is trimmed on a consistent basis.
