I'm having my hair cut. ( I meant to say this is my decision to ask a barber to cut my hair during this week.

  • during would suggest a period stretching for the whole week. You don't require any preposition here. Check the answer. – Maulik V Mar 11 '14 at 7:06

What I understand is you plan for a hair cut in this week. Say it that way only!

I'll have my haircut this week. If you are pretty sure (and confirmed), you may also say...
I'm having my haircut this week. Adding this week would remove an ambiguity and make it clear that you have this plan.

I'm having my hair cut - is a complete sentence and would mean that you are having your haircut now. Something like if someone is asking that what are you doing, you may simply answer I'm having my haircut, talk to you later.

  • +1; does talk you later convey as talk to you later? – SparKot Mar 11 '14 at 8:11
  • @SparKotॐ Yes...though it's quite informal but okay in speech! – Maulik V Mar 11 '14 at 9:03
  • @SparKotॐ No, *talk you later is ungrammatical. – snailplane Mar 11 '14 at 22:20
  • @SparKotॐ it's ungrammatical but spoken in an informal way as I already said. You can use it in an informal speech -as in my example. Google Book shows result of it - Falling for the Princess- By Sandra Hyatt. – Maulik V Mar 12 '14 at 4:54
  • It's ungrammatical even informally. – snailplane Mar 12 '14 at 10:21
