Cutting Hair at 6 Months
After 6 months you can consider yourself fully healed, and you can treat your new hair the same as you'd treat your original hair. Cutting it is not a problem.

It is of great importance to wait 5 months before starting to shave the hair in the recipient area. You may, however, trim the hair with scissors when deemed necessary
When you start shaving, apply gentle pressure to the head and make sure to use the electric shaver gently with a length adapter of #1. It is possible to groom (with scissors) the lateral and posterior parts of the donor area approximately 2 weeks after the surgery.
After six months you should not have to worry about trimming your hair. You can do whatever you like.

At 6 months you should be seeing some good growth or at least the start of some good growth.
You can cut/shave/style/color your hair however you want at this point. The transplanted hairs are now well on their way and can be treated the same as the rest of the hair on your head.
