@SamanthaLovesJames: I got a TRIM a few weeks before the wedding and made sure to tell the girl cutting my hair that I was about to get married and needed the length in order for my hairstyle to work on my wedding day. She was really understanding of that. The girl I normally go to had just moved out of state and I couldn’t go to her; if possible, I would go to someone who knows me already if I were you to avoid worrying about he/she taking off too much. Good luck!

Well, I’m trying to grow my hair our currently and I’m getting married in June (and have been avoiding cutting is as much as possible). My hairdresser (who is also going to be doing my hair for the wedding) told me I need to cut it 2x before the wedding so it doesn’t get too split endy. She also mentioned getting it cut about a month or so before the wedding. Hope it helps! 🙂

My hair dresser wanted me to get my last trim 4-3 weeks before the wedding, but with the holidays I was too busy and ended up going in the week before. I don’t know what the difference would have been had I gone earlier. I did tell my hair dresser how I wanted my hair on my wedding day before she started trimming my hair so she left enough length where I needed it to get the look I wanted in a week. She wasn’t thrilled I’d waited until the week before though. Basically she said I didn’t leave her room for error (aka time for my hair to grow out)

Before cutting my hair it reached beyond half way my back but I needed to cut it because of the split ends it was damaged. My hairstylist advised me to cut at least two more times (the tips and to form my bangs) before the wedding.

I’ll be having my highlights touched up every 2 months between now and the wedding and she’ll trim it every other time I come in.  So my last trim before my June 2 wedding will probably be in April.

I heard you should get a trim at least every 3 months, so your hair doesn’t become damaged. I’ll be doing that, but I’ll be sure to ask them to take as little length off as possible.

I had my hair cut about 2 weeks before my wedding because my layers had all grown out.  I explained to the stylist that I couldn’t afford to lose any length, though.  She did a great job.

I also had my hair colored (went 2 shades lighter) for the first time that same day.  It was a decision I made impulsively, and am lucky it worked out.  That could’ve gone very badly.
