In the land of women, nothing can be worse than having your heart set on a certain hairstyle and having it not last as long as you'd like. Whether you know it or not, your maintenance routine after a haircut has a huge impact on how fresh your new do lasts. After I decided to go from a shoulder length hairstyle to a short cut last year, I discovered a few things you shouldn't do after getting a haircut that helped me maintain the chic do long after I left the salon.
Maintaining my short cut cost anywhere from $50 to $110 and, at least for me, anything that costs more than a slice of pizza is something I don't want to regret spending. I'm not good at maintaining my hair, so ensuring that I follow every step my stylist provides is imperative for keeping my haircuts fresh and my hair moisturized. Though I'm in the process of growing my hair back out naturally, making sure I visit the salon regularly and keeping up with it after my trims is one of the most important things I have to remember.
If hitting the salon is only your thing when you're looking to change up your look once or twice a year, these seven tricks might help you maintain your look longer or encourage you to visit the chair a little more often.
