  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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I get about 3 haircuts a year, if that. I shave whenever I go out, though. My facial hair is less than attractive.

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.

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.

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.

I did no shave November for the first time. It was quite unimpressive. As for haircuts I usually go about 3 months.

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.

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 shave my face 1-2 times a week. I get a haircut every 2-3 months.

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.

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.

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.

Shaving? A month

Haircut? 3-4 months.
