How Often Should You Get your Haircut?

Haircut

We never really have any specific time frame for when we should get a haircut, and most of us just visit the barber every 2 to 3 weeks. So let’s look at the four main categories of haircuts and how long they might usually last.

Before we get into it we recommend treating and styling your freshly cut hair with Hairbond United Kingdom products for best results, these products are made in the UK, loved by celebrities and used by professional barbershops and hair salons.

  1. Ultra harsh haircuts

The harsher or closer to the skin your barber goes with the clippers, the sooner you’ll probably want to be booked back in for your next haircut. Shaved hairlines, hard parts, and severe undercuts expose what we know as harsher haircuts. Although these may look sharp and clean when first done, they don’t usually tend to grow out as well as softer haircuts. So frequent visits to the barbers to keep them looking sharp is essential. As these haircuts grow out, the need for a haircut becomes more and more noticeable.

  1. Skin fades

Our hair grows on average, half an inch every month, which means if you got a skin shade at the beginning of the month, by the beginning of next month, you’d already had an about a number 4 on the back and sides. If you want to keep this high maintenance style fresh, then you may need to freshen up the back and sides every 1 to 2 weeks. But if you are fine with growing it out then it will still look ok up to 3 to 4 weeks.

  1. Short/medium length haircuts

Most agents fall under this category. These hairstyles include the crops, quiffs, Pompadour, and side parts. These haircuts grow out pretty well within 3-5 weeks. Thankfully, they are not as harsh as the others and are not easily noticeable when they start getting longer. With these hairstyles, the messier it looks at the beginning, the longer it lasts and this is because they aren’t intended to be perfect at the beginning so once they start getting rough, it is hardly noticed. But if you no longer like how the hair looks after a couple of weeks, you can consider a haircut rotation. Which means you get the back and sides cut every 2-3 weeks, and a full haircut every 4-6 weeks. This should keep you happier in between and keep those annoying hairs on the sides from encroaching over the top of your ears.

  1. Long length hairstyles

With longer length hairstyles, you won’t be visiting your barber often. Because of the rate at which hair grows monthly, you may not notice the extra length in your hair by month’s end. So you will have more time between cuts as it gets longer and longer.

Most people with long length hair only start thinking of visiting their barber once they begin to notice split ends and/or heaviness with the hair. Your barber will help to reduce the length of the hair, adding shape, texture, and layers as well for a better finish.

However, all of this is down to your personal preference, but on average 6-12 weeks is a good time frame to visit your barber depending on long the hair has grown. Some men are even fine with waiting longer, as much as 12 months without touching it. Again, all of this is a matter of personal preference.

While your style may determine how often you visit the barber, how you care for the hair is also crucial. Ensure you follow a professional hair care routine so that your hair is at its healthiest and lasting for longer periods.

Styling the popular Pompadour with Hairbond

Here’s What you Need To Know

The pompadour haircut is a favourite for men all over the world regardless of age, face shape, and hair type.

In this article, we’ll look at the different types of Pompadours, the tools and specific products needed, and, most importantly, how to style it.

We teamed up with UK hair care brand Hairbond United Kingdom to suggest products a full pompadour styling routine, from washing to finishing with their quality UK made products.

What Is the Pompadour?

The pompadour is a hairstyle that calls for your hair to be big and swept back over your head. The sides and back are closely cropped, followed by what some argue is like a voluminous quiff at the fringe. This isn’t as complicated as it sounds.

Everyone from businessmen to teenagers, and fashion icons the world over can sport the pompadour. However, the pompadour hasn’t always been for men only either. Women use to rock it in the 50s, before Elvis adopted it and showed the world that this heightened, shiny hairdo isn’t just for ladies.

Today the pompadour is one of the best and most versatile hairstyles for men.

Should I try out the Pompadour?

If you are thinking of trying out the pompadour, we can’t blame you. It’s one of the best there is. Here are some things you might want to remember before you take a trip to the barbers.

  1. The Pompadour works best on straighter, finer hair.
  2. Make sure your hair is long enough at the top, you don’t have to worry about the sides.
  3. Try with a beard. Before your appointment, grow your beard out for more exclusive results. It’s quite the combination, the beard with the pompadour, and if you decide you don’t like it, you can always remove it after your haircut.

The 3 Most Popular Pompadours

 1. The Classic Pompadour

As earlier mentioned, the classic pompadour goes way back to the good old days of Elvis Presley. This is the best style for gents who are trying to put in serious styling time. The pompadour is exceptional with great volume and the classic look comes with a glossy shine. For the classic look, you need well-tended hair and a clean scissor haircut. Unlike the top, keep the sides and back shorter. While the hair above your forehead is longer and contrasts the crown of your hair. Use a smooth pomade to style the classic pompadour in the best way possible. This gives a slick, shiny finish that the pomp is all about. For best and safest results we recommend professional products only. We teamed up with UK haircare brand and their water-based pomade is perfect for finishing this classic look; Hairbond’s Gripper Professional Hair Pomade.

 2. The Modern Pompadour

Want to go modern with this classic? Then, the modern disconnected pompadour could just the right style. As you might have probably guessed, this hairstyle stands out because of the cool contrast between the long hair on top, and the short back and sides. The modern pompadour works well with a skin fade haircut and as well with just a regular clipper short back and sides. But with shorter sides and at the back than the classic version, this version doesn’t need too much styling or combing in neither of those areas, which makes it perfect if you are often in a rush in the morning. We suggest trying the Hairbond Shaper Professional Toffee or the Hairbond Mattifier Professional Hair Cement to finish with.

3. The Short Pompadour

The short pompadour is an easier alternative. It can be a savior for those who wish to look a little younger, it has less volume and requires less maintenance. This type of pompadour requires a short back and sides as usual. Ensure the hair on top isn’t more than 4 cm.

This results in classic pomp with a modern twist that saves you plenty of time in the morning. Due to the shorter lengths to the hair, you will likely find better product choice in something not as strong which specializes in natural-looking volume and texture instead. The Hairbond Distorter Professional Hair Clay would be just as ideal, as the Hairbond Moulder Professional Hair Shaper. Both matte clay/wax products, but ranking 3/5 and 4/5 for hold.

How To Style a Pompadour

If you want the top-styled or sleek pompadour or you want some texture or a beachy mess, follow these steps to style your pompadour.

Step 1: Freshly wash and condition your hair so that it’s completely free from excess oil, dirt and product residue. We suggest considering premium quality products so Hairbond’s shower trio, including their body, wash, shampoo, and conditioner is a great place to start your new pompadour styling routine.

Step 2: Depending on your hair length, after drying your towel-dried hair, first distribute between 3-6 pumps of pre-styling spray and then dry the product in with a hairdryer. Then blow-dry your hair backward from your forehead to your crown. We recommend Hairbond’s Texturiser Sea Salt Spray for a rich, protected drier, matte finish or the Hairbond Wonder Primer spray for more of a softer, more conditioned matte and natural results, to lock in and protect the foundations of your new pompadour hairstyle.

Step 3: When your hair is totally dry, you can move on to the finishing products and let them work their magic. As mentioned, a pomade is necessary for the classic pompadour, but if you are looking for texture and/or volume, a gritty clay wax, or creamy shaper is what you want. Take a small amount of the Hairbond product, remember you can always go back for another scoop if you wish, and first rub through your hands, then through your hair to finish the product application.

Step 4: Grab your comb again and after you have distributed the product to your hair, ensure you keep combing. Comb with one hand and shape with the other, then smoothen the hair so as to get what you are looking for. Tip, if with product in, your hair refuses the comb action, apply a small amount of water down the side of your comb. This water will dry out later from matte products, or when added to a pomade, can give you a small amount of additional shine.

Step 5: Now comes the interesting part – creating the pomp. Push your combed hair forward, then finish off by creating an up and back motion with the comb. These curves back the fringe over the front and crown of your head.

Step 6: Once you like the shape of your pomp, use a spritz of hairspray to finish off and all that is left is the volume of a pompadour worth admiring.

Hairbond products can only be purchased from partnered stockists or in popular online market places. For trade pricing on Hairbond United Kingdom products visit Finest Barbers
