  Right now its been about a week since my last shave and 2 months since my last hair cut. I once went a month without a shave because I was on a long appalachian trail hiking trip. My beard is pretty ugly and patchy though :(.

Probably a month or two if we're just talking beard/hair.

I go a few weeks without shaving on a consist basis but I get my haircut once a week; long hair, even in the slightest, does not suit me at all.

You're lucky you can still grow it long :P. Mine doesn't grow past an inch or two on top anymore no matter how long I grow it.

just recently got my hair cut, after going about 3 or so months without a haircut.

Actually, I am pretty lucky to have a thick head of hair. It's almost too thick though.

A couple days, hygiene FTW.

If you don't count brushing my teeth or dry shaving, a little over 60 days. This was in 2003 when I was part of the invasion of Iraq, at best we could wash ourselves with baby wipes and a bottle of water if we wasn't on water restriction.

About two weeks.. as always.

Shaved my beard last week after it was growing for about a month :3

Dry shaving hurts like hell and I imagine can't be good for the skin. Props to you for serving in the armed forces though.

3 months before I realized I had a head the shape of a coconut because of my hair.

The longest? Usually the time I spend sleeping.

2-3 months without shaving....................

#16 Posted by Flubbbs (3320 posts) -

probally a year without a haircut

#17 Posted by Canuck3000 (40562 posts) -
If it's hair/beard we're talking about. A few weeks. I try and get my hair cut every month or so. My beard, I trim it up whenever it starts looking pretty bad. So like a week or two.

I once went two years straight with no grooming whatsoever. I was a mountain man.

#19 Posted by Rhazakna (11022 posts) -
I get about 3 haircuts a year, if that. I shave whenever I go out, though. My facial hair is less than attractive.
#20 Posted by Namgis (3591 posts) -

A couple weeks for my 'beard'. It's quite thin and patchy and my skin is prone to ingrown hairs, so I just trim it. I have gone 3-4 months without a haircut several times recently. My wife cuts it when I can't stand how shaggy it gets. I think the longest I went without a haircut was 2 years back in 7-8th grades. It's hilarious to look at those photos today, twenty+ years later.

I haven't shaved in about 2 weeks or so. It's about time for another trim.
#22 Posted by Meinhard1 (6782 posts) -
If we're talking before I could grow a beard, then maybe 6 months (I had a lot of hair) In my adult life, I've gone about a month and a half without either getting a haircut or shaving.

Did you let the birdies live in it? ;D
#24 Posted by bobaban (10560 posts) -
I get my haircut every 4-5 months. Shave only once a week, sometimes every 2 weeks. Funnily enough, lots more girls like me like this than when I was clean shaven with short hair.

When I was younger I went six years without a haircut, but now it's multiple times a year.

3-4 years without shaving. 

#28 Posted by SoNin360 (5567 posts) -
I did no shave November for the first time. It was quite unimpressive. As for haircuts I usually go about 3 months.
#29 Posted by Celldrax (14680 posts) -

I have a full beard which I just go over with a Number 3 every now and then. And that's usually around.....I dunno, roughly every 2 weeks (sometimes more if I couldn't be arsed). Though when I first grew it, it was at least a month before I trimmed.

My hair isn't quite as think as it used to be, and I pretty much wear a cap wherever I go, so I usually give it at least 2 - 3 months before a next haircut.

#30 Posted by tocool340 (20580 posts) -
Without shaving? Probably 5 months....
#31 Posted by theone86 (20555 posts) -

Not counting growing hair out completely (I think it took me the good part of a year to go from completely shaved to down to my shoulders), about six months for my hair, actually I think I'm getting close to seven right now.  My facial hair, I let my goatee grow for about six months once, but the rest of my beard doesn't come in even so I had to trim that.  It only takes around a month for my facial hair to start bothering me, especially my stache.  When I can taste my whiskers I know I'm overdue for a trim.

I've gone 2 months shaving and a year without a haircut.

#33 Posted by lonewolf604 (8529 posts) -
I shave my face 1-2 times a week. I get a haircut every 2-3 months.
#34 Posted by SolidTy (44569 posts) -

I get my haircut every two-three weeks. A month if I'm pushing it.

Most I can go without shaving is two days before I can't stand it.

#35 Posted by sukraj (23243 posts) -

2 days

#36 Posted by johnd13 (8483 posts) -

I have my hair cut every 4 months. I shave whenever I want(if at all) as I don' t grow that much facial hair. :?

#37 Posted by PernicioEnigma (5391 posts) -
I've gone for months without cutting my hair, and about 2-3 weeks without shaving. I usually go about 5 days to a week without shaving quite often, but after 3 weeks I start to look like a hobo.
#38 Posted by xGamePlayerx19 (378 posts) -

For shaving, I usually let it grow out for about a month then shave it.

For haircuts, I just got one about 2 weeks ago after going 7 months without one, usually let my hair grow pretty long till it annoys me then chop it off and repeat.

#39 Posted by Blue_Shield (2610 posts) -

Trimming facial hair? Couple of weeks.

Shaving? A month

Haircut? 3-4 months.
