Dry/Wet Cut

Sorry if I sound thick. 

Booked in to get my hair cut for tomorrow. They said it would be a wet cut as no dry cuts allowed. 

Why is this? What’s the difference? 

Do I need to wash my hair before going or will they be doing that?

    Wet cut means they will be washing your hair.
    Same for me next week no more dry cuts I was told my hairdresser because not being able to have so many customers in as normal at one time they decided to do only wet cuts now.   For me it is £3 more than normal.
  • I still don’t understand the reasoning. Surely it takes longer to wash someone’s hair than to not wash it?

    Is there any reason this (wet cuts only) only applies to womens cuts?

    I’m male and I’ve been informed mine will be a wet cut.

    I would imagine the reason is hygiene and safety in this Covid world.  I always had a cut and blow dry but when my hairdresser rang a few weeks ago to offer me an appointment when they reopened, I said I would be happy with a dry cut to save salon time.  She told me that was not allowed so therefore I had my normal cut and blow dry last week.  Made me feel a million dollars after 18 weeks looking like a sheepdog!

    I suppose hygiene makes more sense to be honest.

    Makes no sense as colouring is done on dry hair

    I’m no hairdresser, but when colouring the stylist uses gloves.  Can’t cut hair successfully in gloves.

    Interesting, all my local places (Wales) are doing male cuts on dry hair.

    Wet cut normally means no blowdry - it's what I have normally as I want a cut that doesn't need a blowdry or styling with tools, like straighteners, tongs etc.


    (I'm also of the view that the salon blowdry can hide a multitude of bad cut sins)
