The answer depends on your hairstyle. Getting a dry cut requires freshly cleaned hair.
"Buildup on the hair may weigh it down and change its lay," Rivera tells POPSUGAR.
If you merely want a trim, bang touch-up, or layers , your stylist may conduct a dry cut. This method is more frequent on straight hair than curls or waves.
This is particularly true when removing an inch or more from the ends, extending curls or coils before cutting, or adding texture and layers.
If you generally have your hair trimmed while damp, "many hairdressers will wash your hair before cutting"
