This is a picture taken in May with my waves all combed out:

And this is a picture taken yesterday with bun curls:

It looks like I may have actually made it... What do you guys think? I've been wearing it up more often, and microtrimming as well as S&D every week. Thanks for looking!

Well, I don't know. When you put your finger at the bottom of your hair and push inward, do you feel your tailbone?

Well...to be honest, I can't find my tailbone at all on myself

By the way you're wearing your jeans (tightest area seems TBL to me), I'd say you're about an inch away.

Hmm... Okay! Thanks for the input. :)

With your hair stretched out, you're definitely there. As it hangs, you're maybe an inch away. Either way your hair is lovely.

Yay! Okay. Everyone seems to have different opinions! So I'm a little confused. :) Thank you!

You're either there or at the most an inch away, so it's not too bad. ;)

Let me clear up the confusion for you: no matter what length it is, it's sooo pretty!! Love those bun waves!

I love the bun curls! From the way your pic looks, you're there or really close! When you sit down, does your hair touch the chair? That's one way you can tell, or so I've read. I have a long ways to go before I hit tailbone. Congrats!

I would say your tips are there, if you stretch them. Congrats! Your hair is gorgeous!

I find tailbone length to be the one most people can't seem to agree on where exactly it is, most (I've found) seem to think it's higher than I would place it. A lot of people mistake their bottom few vertebrae as their tailbones (my doctor told me this, because they stick out more than the tailbone does, I thought I broke my tailbone, but it was really the third vertebrae up). One way to find yours is to feel down your spine, the tailbone curves inwards, and pressing along near the end your spine your should be able to feel that (I can, again my doctor showed me this).

I think you are just about there, hard to tell, as everyones tailbone can be in a slightly different place. Either way, congrats! Your hair is gorgeous.

Yes, that would be helpful to actually be shown by a doctor... based on what others have said, I still can't find it on myself! D: Thank you for your thoughts, though. I appreciate it!

Really? Yes, maybe a picture with my natural waves instead would be more accurate. Thank you. :o


I'd you're there.

I hope so...

Thank you so much! They're fun. :) And it depends on the chair, actually--it varies, based on the chair's fluffiness. So, maybe I am not quite there solidly yet.

I have no idea....TBL is hard to tell, isn't it? :)
All I can say is that you have gorgeous, mermaid-esque hair!

Yeah...It's kind of infuriatingly mysterious, haha.
:o Wow...Thank you so much, leprechaun!
