View Full Version : Have I reached fingertip length??

September 11th, 2008, 01:40 AM
I've been stuck at two inches below classic for a month or so, and I thought I had a couple of inches more to grow before I reached fingertip... but DH just took this photo, and......... is this fingertip?? I had my hands stretched down as long as they'd go. Excuse the thin / stringy look to my ends, they've got oil in them.


The blue line is classic, on me.

Is fingertip the same as mid-thigh? Or have I still got a way to go to get that long? I'm confuzzled. :silly:

You sure are at fingertip length, congrats! :)

I agree! You wouldn't naturally walk around with your fingers stretched downward, so, yep, you're there! :cloud9:

I concur! Congratulations! :cheese:

Ooh, wow! I only got DH to take that photo so I could figure out how far I had to go - and now I find I'm there already! It's a bit of a shock. :lol:

So, where is mid-thigh, exactly? Is it precisely midway between classic and knee? I need to set my next goal! :disco:

Midway between classic and knee is the best guess for mid-thigh. However, it's a really annoying length that always feels ambiguous.

One day in about a year you'll just wake up at knee-length. Until then, welcome to no-man's land! :lol:

Congratulations! Doesn't look so stringy to me, oil or no oil. :)

Yep, fingertip. Congrats! :D

Mid-thigh is just that: Halfway (or so!) between classic and knee. And, yes, past classic and not knee is very much no-man's land. Personally, I've been there 2.5 years (really hate my long legs). :yawn: Just think, since you're a bit past classic, it means mid-thigh is less than half the distance between where you are now and knee. ;)

Oh, nice skirt by the way!

I agree, fingertip length. Congrats! ( praying for that length by next summer.) ends does not seem too oily, actually looks very good.

Thanks very much! I've figured out where mid-thigh is on me - about 47 inches - and have changed my goal length accordingly.

Onward and... downward! :cheer:

Your hemline is very nice. It looks great at that length. :)

Congratulations on your fingertip-length hair! I'm looking forward to that milestone--in something like 4 years at the earliest!

I would say definately fingertip length, looks very healthy as well. Plus because of the kind of waviness in your hair, I am sure if you pull it straight it would give you more length past your tips. Well done
