    Default Height and Hair Length

    I was thinking about my hair goals this morning and realized that maybe I should take my height into account. I definitely want to reach hip, but whether or not I go beyond that partially depends on if it would look right on me. I'm "short" (5'3", which I would consider average... but the rest of the world doesn't ), and I don't want my hair to weigh me down... how do you guys feel about long hair on shorties?

    I think long hair looks lovely whatever your height, in fact I think it looks cute on shorter people.

    I'm 5'3" as well and I agree it looks so cute on shorties! I love it. I personally only want to maintain hip-tbl length someday thought. And it's true it could end up making you look shorter say if you go past classic length, but that wouldn't matter because you'd have long beautiful hair! I want to wear mine down sometimes though so that wouldn't be for me, it's all up to you.

    I think this is a spurious propaganda by people who don't like long hair. I don't think this ever happens (and I've seen very long hair on less that tall people).

    I'm only 5'2, and I've been wondering about this myself. But I think we can look good with long hair! Mine should be creeping up on waist now and I'll probably keep growing for another couple of inches, but almost certainly not past hip length - just for convenience's sake.

    What can be both an upside and a downside is that we might reach the milestones quicker than someone who's taller (depending on how fast our hair grows, of course) - but waist length hair on me doesn't look as long as waist length hair on someone who's taller, which bugs me. *g*

    Don't pay attention to what others think. Long hair looks good on everybody (I have never seen anyone with long hair that I thought looked bad because of their height or anything of the sort, honestly). And, shorter people reach their goals much faster for which I envy them.
