I went 8 months without trimming. I was trying for 1 year! I hated my ends, they were thin and scraggly looking. I had DH trim off 2". I am so happy I did, my ends are much thicker now. Here is a before and after picture. You really can't tell I lost any length, it just looks like thicker ends. :)

Well done!:thumbsup: You're right, it'd be hard to tell the difference in length

That's so weird! I just did 2" trim too and barely lost any visible length too! How is that possible? It's 4 months growth worth. :confused: I measured my hair before (36"), I measure after (34"), I measured the cut off hairs (2"), but I swear it doesn't look a bit shorter!
I'm really happy with my trim as well, and I'm glad that so do you. :flower:

Heidi, that may be because one tends to see the "true" hair length where the bulk of hair sits (at least *I* do it this way). For instance, if someone has extreme taper or an extreme V-shape and the very tips reach tailbone but the bulk of hair is only at waist, then that personīs hair would seem like waist-length to me. So if your ends are thin I might see your hair as shorter than it is anyway, so when you cut off the ends it wouldnīt seem like a change in length at all.

Does that make sense? :confused:

Your right it really doesn't appear that much shorter. Your ends look great, and your hair looks very nice!

I can't tell there was any length lost either...it looks wonderful! That's a very nice job. :flower:

Looks like a very successful trim! Not visibly shorter but a much better feeling about how it looks. And not to mention fresh ends, for another 8months or more without trimming :)

Thanks everyone! :D


Heidi_234, Thats me exactly! I was at 23" now I'm at 21" but you can hardly tell the difference. Weird!


Calista, Yes, that does make sense!


thankyousir74, Yay! I like having a growing buddy! :cheese:

Makes perfect sense to me. And I think that's what happened in my case, I trimmed off 2" of my rather thin long nape layer back to the bulk of my hair. But the pictures of the OP don't show thin ends or anything. Maybe the right picture is scaled differently, slightly larger?

I'm so glad that you had such a successful trim. Your hair looks great as usual. I think it's amazing that it looks like you didn't lose any length.

You are right, you can't tell a difference other than that your ends look thicker. :) Good choice!

Your hair looks great (and you're right - it looks about the same length as before cutting). Your husband did a really good job with the trim. :)

That was a good trim. You cut the right amount. You ends look nice now but, you're right, it doesn't look like you actually lost length.

Very nice :thumbsup: It looks really healthy and hardly any length gone.

Nice job. The ends look soooo much thicker and your hair looks around the same lenght, that's a win win. :cheer:

It looks wonderful, and you know I certainly can't tell the loss of length! DH did a very good job!

yes it really does, I almost couldnt tell which one was before and which one was after..

Great job! And you are right; when your ends are thin or jagged or V-shaped, the overall length of one's hair appears shorter than the longest lengths. Our eyes tell us where someone's hair ends, and it is not always at the very lowest point. Weird, isn't it?

It looks very pretty, and the length is still there

Beautiful paper! :crush:
You are absolutely right; you can't even tell a trim was done. Great job! :)

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments! :D

rags, You kept telling me you couldn't tell I trimmed. After seeing my pictures side by side, I believe you! ;)


Deborah, Yeah that is weird, and it makes sense! I'm glad I got rid of my thin ends, my hair feels and looks so much better now.

It doesn't look much shorter, only healthier with better ends! I love your shine, btw.
