How Often Should Men Visit Their Barbershop?

A good haircut lasts long after you leave the barbershop.

But how long, exactly?

To a large degree, the life span of a cut depends on the style, and the prevailing Brooklyn do  tight on the sides, with some length on top  puts guys, on average, in the chair once every three to six weeks.

“When I give a haircut, of course; it’s going to look good — you just got it cut. But I try to get the most out of every cut.” said  Garrett Pike to NY Times  ( Head barber at the Brooklyn-based chain Persons of Interest.)

The dialogue with your barber at the start of your session isn’t just small talk; it’s vital information that will lead to a cut that will still look good once you have run it through a shower and may even improve as it grows out.

The more you can tell your stylist, the better. “You’ve been dealing with your hair your whole life. You know all the kooky things that can happen.” Added Mr. Pike.

Mike Sposito, who cuts hair at the Fellow Barber location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, said, “It all depends on how crispy you’re trying to look.”

Mr. Sposito’s core clientele adheres to the three-to-six-week time frame, but a few visit as often as once a week, hoping to constantly maintain what he calls “the brand-new-sneaker look.”

There is such a thing as overdoing it. “If you come too much,” Mr. Pike said, “and you keep asking for the same thing, it’s just going to keep getting shorter and shorter, and you can’t keep hitting the same marks.”

“I go every two weeks,” he said. “It makes me crazy if I go even one day over. I may even go every 10 days.” For Mr. Wooster, it is not only about achieving a specific look. “It’s one of those nice things you can do for yourself,” he said to NY Times.

Barbers said that longer, shaggier cuts are coming back. “I’ve always said: ‘You need to keep coming in. You’re not 14, you can’t just throw a beanie on it”

And when it comes to big events  a wedding, a niece’s bat mitzvah, a job interview over Skype, most barbers recommend a buffer of one or two days, to allow the cut to settle. Mr. Wooster, who prefers a day-of cut when he is being photographed, said:  “Some barbers say the only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is three days.”
