    about time?

    Isn't it about time you got your hair cut?

    What does it mean?

    Hello,

    maybe it is an indirect question to say that this person needs to go where people cut the hair. (I am not teacher).

    Bye.

    To expand the comment: "Your hair is looking unkempt and shaggy. It must be some time since you last had it cut. It is about time to have it cut again"

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    It is about time:It is a idiom that means "You did the right thing, actually you should have done it by now."

    So your sentence means that you should have your hair cut (implying that you should have had it cut some time ago)
