View Full Version : Have I hit waist, finally?

April 11th, 2013, 08:30 AM
After spending what seems like centuries in the midback abyss, I think I have finally hit waist! What do you think?



Damn those wispy hairs near the bottom (from growing out layers!)

And here is a bad pic of my hair at BSL one year ago. I have microtrimmed once since then :)

You look past your natural waist to me! You look more towards hip in my eyes :)

April 11th, 2013, 08:56 AM
Yep, that certainly looks past your natural waist to me! :D Gorgeous hair, I love your hemline.

Your longest hairs are a few inches past waist and the shorter ones have just made it! Very nice! Congrats.

April 11th, 2013, 09:15 AM
You look a couple of inches passed waist to me.

April 11th, 2013, 09:28 AM
Yep, you're defiantly fully waist! Congrats! Live your hair color, BTW

April 11th, 2013, 10:06 AM
Congrats on passing your milestone! You have beautiful hair :)

April 11th, 2013, 10:44 AM
Very nice! The longest part is at hip length.

April 11th, 2013, 10:46 AM
Not only waist, you're brushing hip! Lovely hair, congratulations :)

Thanks all, I guess I don't "feel" like I'm a solid waist, probably because it's not all one length. It also feels like I have a long way to go until hip because of this, even though it doesn't seem like it in the pics!
Anyone else feel like their hair is shorter than it really is?

sisi33 - Thank you, but it's not my natural colour, I am growing the dye out. My natural colour is at the top :)

Looks to me like you're one to two inches past waist, and hitting hip already. Your waist is the smallest part of your back, and you're way past that point.

April 11th, 2013, 11:48 AM
Looks like you're at hip, to me! It can be hard to tell on yourself; when my hair first hit waist I didn't realize because I couldn't see it when I looked at myself straight on in the mirror. Now that it's almost to hip, I look in the mirror and go "oh, I'm at waist" because that's where I can see it facing front. Congrats on the unexpected milestone!

Thank you! :)

Well it seems I have no sense of my own anatomy, as it seems I've been at waist for some time lol :lol:


I agree ghost, I think it's when I look at myself front facing in the mirror, obviously the hair framing my face is shorter so I don't feel like I'm at waist length. This morning I brought all my hair over my shoulder and thought, hmmm, wow it's longer than I thought. But it doesn't feel long enough to be at hip yet, even if the longest hairs are brushing it, I'd want most of the hair to be at my hip bones to say I'm at that stage.

Yes, it's past waist. :) And it's in great condition. Congratulations! :) I love the shine and the color.

Thanks so much, I don't really deserve to have hair in good condition as it's been abused so much in the past, lol!

It is well past waist and looks beautiful!

April 11th, 2013, 03:12 PM
You've definitely made waist and your hair is lovely.

April 11th, 2013, 03:17 PM

Definitely waist! Almost hip to me, very beautiful and shiny :flower:

April 11th, 2013, 05:29 PM
I would definitely say you are well past waist! Congrats! You hair looks beautiful. :)

April 11th, 2013, 05:58 PM
Actually, at the longest point I'd say you're a good 2" past waist, and maybe even a little more than that. Congrats!

ETA: Oops, guess you already figured it out!

April 11th, 2013, 06:18 PM
Past waist to my standards! Beautiful hair! Seeing this inspires me to keep growing (:

April 11th, 2013, 07:27 PM

Beautiful hair!

Lovely growth! Good job with growing out natural color as well! I it is rough.

April 12th, 2013, 01:23 AM
Like others said, looks like hip to me!

April 12th, 2013, 01:27 AM
I also think that's way past natural waist! Well done, your hair is beautiful!

April 12th, 2013, 02:20 AM
Your hair is so beautiful! It looks so shiny and healthy :)

April 12th, 2013, 03:23 AM
I agree your waaay past waist more like hip length, your hair is gorgeous never seen it before :crush:

April 12th, 2013, 09:48 AM
sisi33 - Thank you, but it's not my natural colour, I am growing the dye out. My natural colour is at the top :)

Doesn't mean I can't like both colors! ;)

April 12th, 2013, 10:28 AM
Thank you all for your lovely compliments on my hair! :)

April 12th, 2013, 10:28 AM
Looks like almost hip to me as your natural waist is where your hands are. You have lovely hair!

April 12th, 2013, 11:01 AM
Congrats on the big milestone, they look gorgeous :)
Totally past waist, plus...

April 12th, 2013, 12:21 PM
Definitely waist, if not past it for sure! Beautiful hair :)

It's longer than waist. It's beautiful.
