1. Always tell a new barber how long it's been since your last haircut.
Barbers know how long it takes for hair to grow, so if you tell them how long it has been since your hair was last cut, they can imagine what your hair looked like way back when. From there, you can either tell them that you want it to look the same, or describe how you want it to be different from last time.
2. Tailor your haircut to your face shape.
If you have a rounder face, get a haircut that's tighter on the sides. If you have a longer face, ask for longer hair on the sides and around your temples.
3. Go about a month in between haircuts.
If you have shorter hair, you should go sooner, but if your hair is longer, it's probably fine to wait a month and a half to two months.
