My hair is thinning on the top and I hate it when my hair starts to grow because it looks terrible. I don't want to buzz cut myself because I do not do a good job and it looks noticeably like it was done at home. I feel that I would need to get a haircut every two weeks to keep it short and without anyone noticing I am thinning.

Is every two weeks too often for getting a haircut? I want to know what most barbers experience. Do barbers have customers that come to them every week? Is this something normal and common or am I going to be getting weird looks for showing up so often.

Thanks in advance.

My grandmother used to go every two weeks.  There was no use asking if she wanted to go somewhere on hair-day ... it wasn't happening.

 

I'd hate it ... but, to each his own.  Its your time, and your hair.

If you're self conscious about it, alternate between 2 barbers.

Seems to me a good barber would tell you if you don't need to come in so often - builds loyalty, if not sales directly. I've had other personal service professionals do this.

Haircuts should be administered when necessary.

 

My hair is cut at least weekly, and occasionally twice a week in the summer.  I'm a perfectionist, and a short flattop can be high-maintenance.

 

A traditional barber, especially one who is administering a short cut, is going to expect you to come back often.  In fact, some even give discounts for clients who come in more frequently than average.

Not if you can afford it.... 

If you're open to the idea, it *is* possible to do a much more professional looking cut, at home.  Takes a little longer than a simple buzz cut, but many basic cuts are pretty straightforward, and you can cut it as often as you wish.

 

PM me for instructions.

Jack on 30 Rock gets one every other day since his hair is his head suit.

I don't think you barber will mind, I know that I had the combo of fine and thinning hair before I started to shave my head.. and I would go every two weeks as keeping it short and groomed was a great way to keep my hair in perfect form.

You need to get a hair cut as often as you need it to maintain the look you wish.

For me it is every 2-3 weeks because it is cut 1/8 on top and 1/4 inch on the sides.  If I let it grow out it looks shaggy.  When I had long hair I would have the ends trimmed about once a month to deal with split ends.

Don't get wrapped up on time or date, do as your body needs to keep the look you wish to to have.

i have to get a haircut every sunday for my job

i have a flattop i have to get it cut once a week

No it's not.  That used to be the norm until the mid-late 1960's - early 1970's styles encouraged everyone to grow longer hair.  You could experiment a bit, one chain of haircutters geared towards male customers offers free "neck trims" between haircuts, which might allow you to go four weeks between full clip jobs.

Two weeks is definitely not excessive if you have short hair.  I give myself a high-and-tight buzz at home every weekend.
