This is how long I would like my hair to be:

And this is how long my hair is now:

Also, I think that my hair is a bit curlier than Rose's, so that might make a difference. I just love her hair!

The length you want is BSL, and I'd say right now you're APL when curly. So I guess a year or thereabouts.

This sounds like a pretty good estimate. Depending on your growth rate, shrinkage, trim schedule, and how you care for your hair, it could vary quite a bit.

And welcome! :flower: You have lovely hair!

I don't know how long it will take you to grow to Roses length but I'd say her length is bra strap length yours is apl. Your hair is beautiful by the way.

Thank guys! Does my hair being tapered in the back make a difference? I have some photos on there where you can see the back. Here are more photos of Rose:

Here's a pic from the back:

Also, I get it trimmed every 10-12 weeks, about .5 inches each time.

If you look at the photo of me in the green dress, that was taken in the spring of 2012.

Also, Kate Winslet may have had extensions. I read that somewhere......

When I said I didn't know how long it would take for you to reach your goals it's due to the rate your hair grows. I do like your hem line the taper. I have a v hem line.

I can't answer your question, since I know very little about how fast curly hair grows, but I have to say you have beautiful curls. I would guess it wouldn't be long before you reach your goal, but that's just a guess.

Your hair looks beautiful! I'm so jealous of your curls :blossom:

My guess would probably be around a year. Each milestone takes me about a year... waist to TBL took me a little longer though but I find when hair is growing to waist length it goes steady at that rate... in my case anyway. You're def close though :)

I'd say around a year as well. And your curls are amazing!!

I think Kates hair looks different lenght in different photos because at some her is is REALY curly and on some more wavy that curly. Your hair is stunning. I think about a year or little more depending on how fast your hair grows.

Well, the average hair growth is supposedly 0.5" a month, and the absolute fastest I've heard of anyone having (and sustaining) is 2" a month (squiggyflop, I think). Of course, you need to subtract any trims and remember that length will not be anywhere near so apparent for you as you're curly.

A year sounds like a reasonable estimate.

Like everyone else said, about a year or a year and a half depending on how much you trim. You have very pretty curls :)
I love her hair in that movie!

I'm also not sure how BSL (or longer, because in some pics it looks like it's down to her mid/lower back) would look on me because I'm so short too. I'm 5'2.5'' and chubby and she was 5'7'' and lean in those photos.
