With the holidays approaching and wedding season looming, many hairstylists are already getting busy, but there’s still one more task to get done before you can begin your beautiful wedding day: getting the perfect haircut.
According to a recent survey from online dating site Plenty of Fish, some hairstylist are getting their hair cut in the middle of the day to maximize the flow of the bridal shower.
A survey from Plenty of Flaws found that, of those surveyed, 75% of men and 71% of women said that the most important thing about getting a great haircut is timing.
And it seems that, when it comes to hair, most of us are a little bit off-kilter.
According to the survey, women prefer to shave their hair at night, while men prefer to trim it as early in the morning as possible.
“I’m not going to lie, we’re all in the mood for a little late-night haircut,” one woman told the site.
“But I would say it’s the right time, the perfect time, to get it,” added another woman.
Another woman said that it was best to shave at 8am, when most men are showering, but “I don’t have to shave till 8pm,” and another said that she prefers to shave her hair at 3am.
The survey also found that when it came to the length of their hairstyles, most men and women both said that they prefer a straight, combed style over a full, loose style.
One woman, however, seemed to have a more extreme preference for a combed look.
“I like to go for a straight combed cut,” she said.
“But I have a problem with that, because I think it looks like I’m getting a lot of hair.”
Another said that her favorite hairstyle was a loose, straight style.
“My hair is not a straight cut, but I do like it to be combed,” she added.
Some hairstylers even say that the best time to shave a hairpiece is in the early morning.
“It’s not a bad time to go, but you want to get your hair to really feel loose and fresh,” one man told the website.
According to Plenty of Fails, the most common reasons for people choosing to shave early in a day are: getting a haircut, feeling energized, getting to go out, and relaxing.
But if you’re planning on getting your hair cut the day of, well, anything, don’t get your hopes up.
“Most men don’t shave before bed,” a man told Plenty of Questions.
“I can’t imagine that a woman would be a fan of that.”
And a woman said: “I definitely don’t want to go to bed in a very, very long-shaved state, and that’s when I have to put on a wig.”
