I just found these pictures from a woodland poetry/music performance I did last fall. I'm pretty excited, because I almost never see my hair down (first, because it's almost never down, and second, because when it is, it's BEHIND me :P ) so these are partially for me...but I figured other people here might enjoy them too. I've got to say, even though I can feel it against my calfs, when I see how long it is in pictures, I do a double-take - "my hair is THAT long? when did that happen?"

Wow! Your hair looks so epic. Is that a half up crown braid?

Your hair is so beautiful! As soon as I saw your first picture, I imagined the ocarina playing in my head. :) It's amazing that you've grown your hair so long and it still looks healthy. Do you wear it down a lot, or do you like to keep it in a protective hairstyle?

Stunning! :)

Beautiful!

(Also, there's no way that you're a ii, right? Your half-up braid is more than twice the thickness of my entire hair.)

Thanks everyone! I really love the forest scene too. It made me FEEL magical!


Wow! Your hair looks so epic. Is that a half up crown braid?

Basically. It's a french lace braid that then gets wrapped around my head 2x. Fewer pins than a usual crown braid, but I might be wrong.


Do you wear it down a lot, or do you like to keep it in a protective hairstyle?

Yes, definitely! More to protect my arms than my hair though - it gets EVERYWHERE! ;)


Beautiful!

(Also, there's no way that you're a ii, right? Your half-up braid is more than twice the thickness of my entire hair.)

I have no idea. I'm actually still a little hazy on how the system works since it's hard to judge thickness from a picture. But my hair is about half the thickness of my mother's, so I've always thought of it as medium-thin. I think the half-up style makes it look thicker than it really is...

Lol! When I saw your pictures I imagined that as you were walking through the woods, the wind blew your hair so that it latched onto branches and things. It's a majestic length, I can see people asking you to let down your hair so they can climb up to your window :)

The system is based on ponytail circumference. You just measure the circumference of your ponytail (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=129056) and then the classifications are as follows:

i = less than 2" circumference
ii = between 2" and 4" circumference
iii = more than 4" circumference

People also use intermediate classifiers (i/ii and ii/iii) if they feel they are spot-on or very close to the boundary or if (e.g. because they're curly) their measurements vary somewhat but always centre on the boundary.

That was the first thing I thought, too! Your half up braid looks so thick!

Very pretty hair and pictures. Thanks for sharing them! :)

Huh. look at that. you're right, Panth (and the others who pointed it out), my hair is iii instead of ii. I measured it again last night and it's 4.5"...which is more than 4 (I'm good at math like that ;) ) I'll go fix that now, thanks!! Can anyone tell I'm a member of the benign neglect club? Clearly can't figure out how to use a measuring tape...:whistle:

When my hair gets to your length, I can only hope it looks as good. Man, your hair is amazing and what I want when it finally gets long again!

Wow. Definitely thud-pile worthy! :) :thudpile:

Your hair is gorgeous, and it's such a nice color, too. I think your hair is about the same shade as my daughter's natural hair color, but I'm not sure because DD is forever changing her hair color, so nobody's seen her base color in years, LOL. :)

Your hair is absolutely stunning! To achieve such a length is quite a feat, it looks so healthy too. That first picture is breathtaking.

Phenomenal hair! :thudpile: Beyond Epic!

And wow, you can do a French lace half-up crown braid at such length? :bigeyes: You are an insanely skilled braider! :applause
