Getting a trendy haircut can be a fun thing to do, and can considerably update one's overall appearance. At the same time, there are always risks involved in getting a new style of haircut, including the ability of a hairdresser to properly exercise the cut, the fact that a "trendy" haircut may not always suit one's features and that, in some cases, the haircut can result in one's looking like they easily succumb to trends. On the other hand, individuals who work in some occupations may find that a fashionable or “scene" haircut gets them noticed and offers certain career advantages.

Haircut trends change all the time, and are often based on the "look" sported by popular celebrities. While it can be tempting to follow the crowd and get a trendy haircut, it's important to keep in mind that a haircut that suits a celebrity may not flatter people with different facial structure or who are much younger or older than the celebrity. In addition, that haircut may be difficult to maintain. While a celebrity generally has the financial and personal resources to regularly have their hair serviced by a professional, many people do not have this kind of time or money. Finally, there is often a learning curve when it comes to performing certain types of haircuts. An average stylist may not be experienced in performing a currently trendy haircut and may simply not do it well.

On the other hand, getting a trendy haircut can make a statement about a person's willingness to try new things and to keep up with the latest fashions. In some industries, appearance can be extremely important and both employees and job seekers are expected to keep up with fashion and beauty trends. Getting a trendy haircut before anyone else does can make an individual look like a trendsetter within their community. It can also represent a fresh new look for someone, particularly if they have not changed their hairstyle in awhile.

Things to consider when getting a trendy haircut are the facial shape and age of the celebrity or celebrities wearing the haircut. Another thing to consider is that a trendy haircut sometimes looks better with certain types of color treatments, such as highlights or lowlights. If an individual likes a currently fashionable haircut, but worries that it is not suitable for them personally, they might still want to show a picture of the haircut to a stylist. The stylist may then be able to incorporate some of the features of the haircut into a more suitable and flattering style for his client.
