Lunar Haircuts: How to Perform Them at Home This Winter

Winter is upon us! As we ease into the colder months, it’s an ideal time to ramp up your self care approach in your home routine. Coming up, there are several lunar hair cutting dates to mark on your calendar. Implementing lunar hair cutting allows you to harness the power of the moon phases to optimize your hair health. Using the lunar hair chart in conjunction with your home hair cuts is an effective way to reach your hair goals faster.

Whether you have no experience cutting your own hair, or are a hairdresser by trade, anyone can learn a few simple tools to get started with this new haircutting routine at home. Better yet, you’ll save money when you aren’t scheduling regular visits to the salon. In addition, now is a good time to start using henna hair dye at home to reduce chemical usage and save funds by taking that process into your own hands.

At Morrocco Method, we are passionate about education. Our goal is to enable you to leave our content feeling empowered enough to implement these techniques yourself. Depending on where in the world you are located, your ideal lunar hair cutting dates will vary. Explore the various regions & dates below.

Tips for Cutting According to the Lunar Hair Chart

Adopting the practice of cutting in accordance to the Lunar Hair Chart can seem like a daunting task if you are new to it. However, it’s so simple and easy to integrate. Here are some tips on getting started.

1.Get high quality tools.

We have compiled our Blunt Snip Haircutting Kit to include everything you need gear-wise to get started right away. This kit includes professional haircutting scissors, rattail comb, a printed copy of the lunar hair chart calendar and a link to our lunar hair cutting video series.

2. Evaluate your hair & pick your hair goal(s).

It’s normal to have more than one hair goal. Most of us do! However, the best approach is to focus on one goal at a time. Regardless of your goal focus, we recommend rotating in the root work goal to truly optimize your hair growth potential. For example, if your hair goal is thickening, cut your hair the thickening dates with the exception of every third month. On that third month, cutting on a Root Work date is best.

3. Write your desired cut dates down in your planner/calendar.

This will set you up for success so that you don’t miss your lunar hair dates. Also, doing this will ensure that your hair cuts coincide with your actual hair goals, versus picking random dates and perhaps cutting more or less often than you mean to. Essentially, making the effort to write it down will optimize your consistency & efficacy.
