I try for no more than every 2 months. I let it go for a while the first year and a half after Timmy was born, but then I asserted myself to Tim, and made it Clear that this was something that was important to me and was going to get done regardless.

Timmy gets his done every 3-4 weeks. We keep his hair buzzed. It's buzzed down to a "1" each time, and yes, really does need to be done monthly. I do have my own clippers, but for a while he would NOT let me do it. Sunday night I tried again and he let me so hopefully that continues, as I really don't like paying someone (even if its only $11) monthly if I can do it myself!!

About 2-3 times a year I get a trim. When I had a style, I did it almost monthly.. but I am growing it back out.

I get Meg's cut by a shop every 4-6 months.. but trim it myself in between.

I get my colour done every 5 weeks and a cut every other time, so every 10 weeks.

Aidan's gets cut about once every 3 months. Every 2 months would be better, but it's a bit of a drive to get to the place we use so I always end up putting it off a few extra weeks.

I haven't done anything to my hair since Lilly was born. I got it chopped to just before my shoulders the December before she was born.

I got lillys hair cut at 18 months and then again 2 weeks ago. Guess I'm not that great in the hair maitence department.

oh geez

cut - every 4-5 weeks
dark colour - every other hair cut
pink - every 2 weeks, or it fades too much. I can do it at home, because those sections are bleached out to take the pink, and the pink only shows up on those areas.

Not very often but I'm getting the itch again. i normally get it cut above my shoulders close to my ears so I can leave it down in uniform.

Aiden-2-3 times a year. I tend to let it grow out and then cut it.

I'm lucky if I get 2 hair cuts a year. Maddie only needs one every 6 months to a year.

I get my hair done every 6 weeks - trim, colour, highlights, low lights.. whatever.

Sam has only had her hair cut twice. Once at 2 years old and once right after she turned 3. She has slooooow growing hair!

With all these haircuts happening, I feel like we need more pictures! For the longest time, I really only cut my hair about every six months or so. Since I got my bangs cut, I have been really good about maintenance. I aim for 6-8 weeks for the regular trim (which usually ends up being closer to 12 weeks, and I have to get a bang trim every 3-4 weeks. Luckily, the place I get my haircut is only a few minutes from my work so I can hop in for a bang trim and be in and out in about 15 minutes. I just got the Brazilian too (which is amazing by the way) so I will have to maintain that. It's supposed to last 3-6 months, so we'll see.

London- London's hair grows super slowly. I usually get her hair cut every 6 months or so. If her bangs start looking too long, I trim them at home. I am planning to take her in for a cut this weekend because she's been asking for it, but it really hasn't grown out that much.

I like to go every few months since I'm growing it back out. I need to go in and get a trim and maybe have my highlights touched up. Before I deployed I had messed up my hair pretty bad dying it myself - so 6 months later it was like half blonde (ish) and half brown - it was a hot mess I'm trying to be better on maintenance.
