What is a trim ? What to expect from a trim service by a hairdresser ?

In hairstyling, a "trim" refers to the process of cutting a small amount of hair from the ends to maintain the current hairstyle's shape and manage split ends. The primary purpose of a trim is to keep the hair looking neat, healthy and well-groomed without making a significant change to the overall length or style.

The purpose of having a trim once in a while

The most common goal of a trim is Length Maintenance: The hairstylist will typically trim off only the very tips of the hair, removing around half an inch, split ends if any or damaged hair. It's a minimal cut designed to keep the hair looking fresh.
