View Full Version : 3 years at TLHC!! (pic heavy)

It's been three years since I joined TLHC! :D 'm happy with the progress so far, but I do think I need a trim soon to battle my brittle hemline. I'm still growing out layers, so the ends are thinner than the rest of my hair and more vulnerable.
I've had my difficult moments growing my hair out, but mostly because I'm always in doubt whether I look better with our without bangs. I'm afraid it's driving my boyfriend crazy. :) I loooooooove bangs and how they look on other people, but I'm never completely happy with my own. Growing them out, cutting them, growing out again...sigh. I guess I'll be acting difficult about this for the rest of my life, haha.
But I'm incredibly happy to have long hair again! I really missed it after cutting my hair short three years ago. Now my length goals keep altering...I'm addicted. :)
Anyway...time for a pic spam!

This is where I started, in 2010:

Wow! Wats your pony circumference? And I love your bangs in the second to last pic!

Thank you!! :)
@Coolcombination: I'm not sure if I've measured this correctly, but I think my pony circumference is 11 cm. In general I'm happy with the thickness of my hair, but some updos can be really hard to accomplish because it's so heavy.

Lovely. Just lovely. I'm always enduring the bangs battle myself. They're currently at about APL, but I'm SOO tempted to cut them right now. Esp after seeing yours :)

@Zabethbartsch: I know exactly what you mean! I wish bangs could grow out in a day so we could change between bangs and no bangs all the time, haha.

Oh yes. I've had this thought many times - I'm constantly changing my mind about my bangs.

haha I feel the same way. Always deliberating between bangs or no bangs. The debate will never be over!

Loved seeing your hair progress. I've been growing my hair out from chin length and joined LHC at the same length as you. Now at BSL! Your hair is stunning! Hope mine looks half as lovely as yours in 2 years time :blossom:

Wow-SER! Your hair is great! --I'm growing my bangs out. They feel weird on my forehead, and have only about 3 days of being the prefect length--else they're too short or too long. I look better with bangs, but think they're more trouble than they're worth. That's just me. :)

It's amazing what 3 years can do! The older I get, the faster that amount of time seems to go by. So you give me hope that, in a couple more years, I may have hair halfway as amazing as yours! I'm growing out layers, too, so I feel you on the brittle ends thing, but your ends really do look pretty nice to me! (I'm growing out bleach, so my own ends are pretty sad at the moment.) I have the same battle with bangs, too. At least it's something we can play around with, though. Congrats on your beautiful hair and long-term dedication! :)

What a gorgeous mane of hair! Honestly, I don't think you need any trim. Your ends look thick and healthy. It looks more like a U shape hemline, not a layered haircut residuals. You don't have left a lot of them. Oh, and I'll give anything to have a thick braid tassel like yours (Yes, braids addicted here... lol).
