Question #3: Can I Afford a Long-Term Relationship with This Haircut?
Some cuts require frequent trims to keep their shape; others let you get away with quarterly or even biannual salon appointments. As a rule, the shorter and choppier the style, the more maintenance needed to keep it looking fresh. When hair is one length or has only long layers, you don't need to visit the salon more than three or four times a year.
