Three Signs That Your Hair Needs a Trim

By Sara Dickinson, Martha Stewart

We won't ask you about your last haircut—it was likely months ago, before stay-at-home orders were set in motion. Chances are, you already know that your hair needs some care, but as salons re-open and we settle back into a semblance of daily life, regular sessions with your hairstylist will once again become possible—which is why you should know the signs of hair that needs trimming. If you're having more bad hair days than good ones, quick, frequent trims are the easiest way to revive your look and make your hair more manageable. Not sure whether it's time to book an appointment with your hairstylist? Here are some of the telltale signs that your hair is in need of a trim.

Your hair is damaged.

If you're starting to see dry or split ends, it's time for a trim. But Dani Everson, the owner of Clementines Salon in Denver, Colorado, suggests heading to the salon before you reach that point. "If you run your hands through your hair and it catches, that is the part that is damaged and needs to be treated or cut," she says. "Hair is like velcro. When the cuticles become raised, they catch—and snags make for a no-fun morning routine."

Your cut has lost its shape.

Are you noticing uneven layers? Or have said layers completely disappeared or blended together? If the answer is yes, you need a trim. The same is true if you're experiencing flat hair; if you're lacking in the volume department, it could be dead, unhealthy ends weighing you down.

It's been a while.

If you can't remember the last time you sat in your stylist's chair, you're due for an appointment. As for appointment frequency? "It's different for everybody, but in general, if you have short hair, four to six weeks is a good timeframe for a trim so that you don't lose the shape," explains Yasuna Hishono, a senior stylist at Benjamin West Hollywood. On the other hand, if you're growing out your hair, Hishono suggests giving it about 12 weeks—but don't wait too long, "or you might have to cut off a little more than you might want," she says.
