I’m the kind of girl who has long hair and only cuts it when I start noticing a bunch of split ends. I don’t stick to any kind of schedule whatsoever, I can go like 4-5 months without cutting. Like now, I need to get a haircut this week. 

Anyway, since I’m cutting it soon and based on my previous experience, my next cut will probably be a month or two before my wedding.

@MiJeS1104:  My wedding is this Saturday, and I got it cut two weeks ago.  Just in time to clean it up but long enough that it won’t have that “freshly cut” look.

I’m aiming for about a month before the wedding for my last trim.  That way I’ll be free of split ends, but there is enough time for it to be a bit grown in.

I plan to get mine cut about two weeks ahead – my hair needs time to get over the shock of being cut.  lol   I’ll do the color ahead, too.

My wedding is September 7th and I have an appointment for a cut and color on the 5th. I want my highlights as fresh as possible

@MiJeS1104:  i also have long, curly hair. My wedding is in 3 weeks and I got a haircut on Saturday. I have highlights, so i needed to get my roots done and i only got a trim. nothing too drastic. i like my hair long, so whenever I cut it, I never take off too much

I have long very thick hair. I am having a DW and will be getting my hair done about a week before the wedding. Just some highlights and a trim.

My hairdresser recommended two weeks, but the only day I can make it work is 4 weeks ahead, which she said was fine.

@MiJeS1104:  I cut my hair chin length last March and starting seeing a new stylist for maintenance shortly after. I’m a hairstylist myself. I am capable of trimming my own hair but it wasn’t easy as short as it was, which is why I started going to a stylist every 12 weeks for a trim. In February of this year, a month before the wedding, my hair was probably a little past collarbone length. I had an appointment in February and she ended up cutting a good two inches off my hair. I had ler her know all along I was letting my hair grow out so I could wear it up for my wedding. It was long enough to wear up but it was necessary to put my clip-in extensions in. Since then, I have not gone back to her. I have just trimmed my own hair since. Now it comes down to the bottom of my shoulders.

At my hair and makeup trial in early February, my stylist told me not to cut my hair until after the wedding. She has worked with several brides in the past who cut their hair before the wedding and the style they had practiced at the trial no longer worked.

I knew I wanted to wear my hair down and straight. I’d been kind of ignoring the split ends so I had an inch cut off and the highlights redone a week before the wedding. That way it didn’t have that just cut look. On the morning of my wedding I went to the salon again for it to be washed, styled and the straighteners run through it.

I’m getting it done a month before. I’ll be back home and want to see my old hairdresser! Otherwise I was supposed to get it done 2 weeks ago but was too sick to go.
