I hear it all the time..”I don’t need to pay to get my haircut, I have a pair of clippers at home, I can do it myself.” For so many years there has been a stigma behind men’s grooming and how they go about it. We have recently stepped into a world where men going to a salon or barber shop is not only accepted but encouraged. So how often should you get your haircut? Well, according to About Style “As a general rule, the length of your hair is the primary factor which will determine how often you’ll need to get a haircut to maintain your style.  The shorter the haircut, the more frequently you’ll need to head to your barber or stylist. Hair generally grows at the rate of half an inch per month (give or take a little depending on the guy).”

There are many benefits to getting your hair cut professionally. Not only do you have your very own personal stylist that can help you pick out a hair cut that best suits not only your face, but your lifestyle. There are also many stylists like Virginia Carden Hair Artistry that also provide a scalp massage during your appointment. Scalp massages provides many benefits that you may not know. Scalp massages increase the blood flow to your scalp which can help with hair growth and thinning. They also can provide stress relief “Scalp massages increase the production of serotonin, a chemical in your body that increases your mood” said the Huffington Post. Scalp Massages should be a regular part of your grooming routine because of all the benefits they provide, and let’s be honest..who doesn’t like having their scalp rubbed and being pampered?

At the end of the day getting your hair cut shouldn’t be something to be embarrassed about. While we are sure the haircuts you are giving yourself at home are fabulous, head on over to the Family Barber Shop and let Virginia take care of you, because you deserve it!
