:thud:Do you have a camera??? I would LOVE to be at waist right now!

Personally, I would leave it. At the very least wait out the two-week rule or make sure you don't have any day of doubt from now till your appointment. But then again, it is your decision. I can't say that I wouldn't cut back to BSL once I hit waist but have a ways to go before then.

I've seen gorgeous v-shaped hemlines. You could even consider a microtrim with Feye's trimming method.

Congrats on WL!!!! :)

I agree. leave it until you're sure. I also have a VERY deep "V" shape, and I've made peace with it and style it to make the most of it's shape (i.e. lots of curls and pretty updos). But, if after a couple of weeks it still bothers you, give yourself a small trim, or try a different style. Good luck!

Congratulations! It's nice to reach another milestone.

id leave it or maybe cut it into a U shape this would be easier to trim to a blunt if that what you want, but hey well done on reaching waist ive another 14 months at least until im there!

First, congratulations!!!

Second, I would leave it! But, do what you want... it's your hair.

April 7th, 2008, 12:31 PM
I would leave it also - good for you on waist length!!

April 7th, 2008, 12:35 PM
Awesome! I am happy for you. I would definately leave it. If the hair is pretty healthy and not really split, Why cut it when you've finally reached waist. Embrace it! V-shaped or not. I bet it looks beautiful. Photos??? :)

I would call and so cancel that appt; waist is waist enjoy it!!!!

April 7th, 2008, 01:37 PM
How exciting.
If it doesn't bother you much, I'd leave it.

April 7th, 2008, 02:04 PM
Congratulations!!! I hope to post this someday! :cheese:

April 7th, 2008, 02:34 PM
YAY! I'm so happy for you! :) I (like Curlsgirl) want to be able to say that one day!

April 7th, 2008, 02:57 PM
Congrats!!! I say leave it. I happen to love a v-shaped hemline. :) Yup, I have one myself and I'm not giving it up anytime soon.

April 7th, 2008, 03:25 PM
Congrats. I dont like v shapes for myself. But if I reached waist I would leave it. =)

Never give up!

leave it. it looks great. can't wait until mine gets there. I am just glad it is past BSL. if I were you I would do the trim myself and do only 1/8" trim each time I trim and that would take off some of the length help it look more U-shaped.

lacereza - im in the exact same boat....this is how i am going about it. Monthly 1cm trims (that is my growth rate) and then EVENTUALLY it will be U shaped, but i don't loose length!

April 19th, 2008, 05:24 AM
Congratulations! That's great!

Wow, that IS a deep-vee. Your hair is lovely, though, and seems to be in pretty good condition- i'd leave it for a while with micro-trims & then even it out when the shortest ends were nearer your waist.

April 19th, 2008, 08:17 AM
I can't see any picture posted, but I would agree to leave it for a while.......you have earned bragging rights, enjoy it.

Leave it. I actually love my v-shaped hemline- I feel so John Waterhouse painting-ish.

April 19th, 2008, 09:38 AM
Your hair is lovely!

I think leaving it or not really depends on you! I am MUCH more attached to my thick, tidily groomed ends than I am to my length, so my impulse is always to trim rather than to let it be. However, if your priorities are the other way around, by all means, let it go!

You just have to pick: length, or hemline? Hemline, or length?

. . . good luck!

Congrats!!! :cheer:

April 19th, 2008, 09:56 AM
Congratulations! It looks beautiful, I'd leave it unless it's really bothering you. :)

April 19th, 2008, 01:38 PM
Wow! It looks great!! Congrats on your accomplishment!!! Personally, I wouldn't change a thing:twocents:.

April 19th, 2008, 02:01 PM
Congrats! I would leave it, I think, but like several others have suggested maybe you should go by the 2 week rule and wait. You can always trim it later.


April 19th, 2008, 02:11 PM
Oh, that's beautiful. I love V hemlines.

Yeah, congrats on WL!
I can't wait to hit it myself.

Enjoy your new WL hair :)
