When is the optimal time for a pre-birth haircut?

I am 31 weeks. My hair badly needs cutting and my eyebrows badly need mowing. I can only afford to do this once.

When is the best time for this? I don't want to leave it too late and miss the only chance I'll be getting for the next year ...

As long as you feel up to it, you can leave it as late as possible.

Well, I had my hair cut 4 days before ds's due date. Much later and I would have been too knackered to get to the hairdresser's and too uncomfortable to sit still for the duration of the haircut.

Unfortunately, there was still over 2 weeks of pg to go, and I didn't get another hair cut till he was 3mo. But that was the least of my worries, looks-wise, I'm afraid.

I pluck my own brows, but it's a nice thing to splash out on and can make a big difference to how "groomed" you feel.

Agree leave it as long as possible. And have it cut on the short side. It might be the last haircut for quite some months.

I was having an elective c section that was all booked up. I decided to book a hair appointment for the week before. DS decided to make an early entrance to the world at 37 weeks a week before my hair appointment, it was 2 months later before I managed it. So, personally I would say about 35/36 weeks.
