Something I've always hated my entire life. Making an appointment, keeping the appointment, waiting for the stylist, never getting it cut just the way I envisioned. I go back in forth from getting the $13 special at the local TGIF hair-cutters, or going downtown and paying $35 for a stylist to work the magic.
How often do you get a trim/cut? My work dictates keeping a rather conservative appearance, but I'd go back to the college years of looking like a hippy if I could.
How do you get your hair cut/styled?

Approx every ten days at any time of the day or night when I can be bothered to do it.
I use my clippers and shave my entire head with no guard or, on occasions, I use a razor and shave my head bald in the shower. As my hair disappeared from the front years ago, I decided to concede to recede! (and it's cheap too!)

I do it myself. Twice a month with clippers. Usually the #1 guard. I'll usually ask a friend or neighbor if they'd check out the back to make sure it's all even and whatnot. If I went bald tomorrow you'd hear no complaining from me...

My girlfriend cuts my hair, about once a month. Never get any bad surprises that way, always looks the same. She hasn't realized yet that I save a lot of money that way, once she does she'll probably want me to take her out for dinner in exchange
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

I hate it and always have, having scruffy hair annoys me but so does getting it cut. My hair is at it's best when it's about one month after I have had it cut, easy to maintain, not too short and not too long. The only reason I would let it grow is so my natural colours come out, I was a blond but it went brown a few years ago so when it's longer I get a good mix of brown, red and blond.
Unfortunately my hair is really thick so if it gets too long it looks a mess

I need my hair cut about every 10 days. I usually alternate between doing it myself and having a barber do it. I used to go 3 on top and 2 on the sides but now it's a 2 on top and a 0 on the sides. There's a great barber here in Tempe that only charges like $12 and he does it right.
Before my brain surgery, I'd always sport a flat top (go ahead, say what you will).
For the better part of 10 years, I had a regular guy north of Houston who did a heck of a job. Old timey place - the price you paid is the price when you started going there.
When I moved to Las Vegas - I looked for a place near Nellis AFB -- likely to find someone who really knows how to chop a flat top. Well, I found it! A guy 80 years old - a WWII vet -- did the best flat top I've ever had and a shave with a straight razor.
I got tired of making the 20 mile hike and found another place. Cliff's Wild West Showroom & Barber Corral (Trop & Pecos). I really enjoyed the place - unique to say the least - animal trophies everywhere, old firearms, Native American memorabilia and old west memorabilia. And best of all - no price list. The price is what you feel like paying. I'd always give him a $20 and say "the change is what you feel like giving me back."
Since I came back to Texas, I settled on a place that doubles as a barber shop (their primary business is running numbers). I just get a short crew cut - nothing fancy. Low mx!
High and tight, the way i've had it for the last 17 years. I get mine cut about 1-2 times a month depending on whether or not i'm home. I have one lady who does it, and when i'm out of town, I wait until I come home home to get it cut.

Since I have hair that's out of control -- it grows quickly and there's a hell of a lot of it (none on the back, thank God, but just about everywhere else) I hit up a "concept" salon every 3 weeks to keep it short(er) and relatively even. (Hey, it's four doors down from my office, can't beat the convenience). Cost w/o tip, about $40.

For those of us who have schedules, an aversion to sh!tty music, or hate hearing people we couldn't care less about droning on about their personal lives---- there are few experiences less pleasant. Nah, I take it back, there are NO such experiences.
I have to say this is one of the thing Pep and I are pretty much on the same page about. I like the #1 all the way around and usually do it to myself for free. Oh and spare me the jokes about doing it to myself for free, we all know everyone does THAT.

A haircut.... damned good idea actually, usually I go every 3rd week and it is time now. I pay 16 EUR (17 EUR with tip), it is expensive but the girls there do it right, additionally I get a coffee (or soft drink) for free so it is ok.
