    I'm <going to have a / getting my> hair cut later.

    - I'm going to have a hair cut later
    - I'm getting my hair cut later

    I know both sentences are correct, but which sentence do you use normally as a English native speaker?

    Re: "I'm going to have a hair cut later" or "I'm getting my hair

    "I'm getting my hair cut later."

    Though "I'm getting a haircut later" is more common.

    The first one isn't really correct, most would say "I'm going to get a haircut later."

    It's usually one word: haircut.

    @chasfh, But isn't it right to separate hair and cut in this sentence "I'm getting my hair cut later"?

    @Gabbro, Thanks !

    You are correct. Haircut as one word is a noun.

    I'm getting my hair cut.
    I'll show you my new haircut.
