View Full Version : No more hair indicators under the avatars?

March 7th, 2008, 06:47 PM
We had to fill those out though, but a shame we cannot see them next to the posts anymore.

You know.. the 1c-F-ii like things. :)

Are they only for the profile pages now?

March 7th, 2008, 06:51 PM
I noticed that, too...I hope they come back.

I just decided to throw them in my siggie. Just as handy :)

Yes.. I seriously miss them! lol I was constantly looking for them over on TBB.. They are extremely helpful in many ways. I know it does take template edits.. so it depends on that happening.. not as easy as just *checking a box*..

Go to "User CP" and then "Edit your Details" (first one on the bar I believe). If you scroll down you see all that stuff. That's how you change them. But...I'm not sure whether or not they show up under the actual avatars. They seem not to be at the moment.

Nope, they don't. Probably only in the profile pages.

I'm missing the stats too. Hopefully they will be added later on. It's so nice to see what kind of hair is being discussed. If someone has an issue with a 4a type hair I won't be of much help but if she has 1c hair maybe I can offer something.

I remember that the hair stats were a while coming back after a previous upgrade. So maybe they will be back, one day. :)

In the mean time, if everyone just puts the data in their siggies it should work peachy, no? :)

On my User CP, I can fill in the fields, but I can't remember what the types are!

So far I haven't been able to find the descriptions on the forum. Are the posted yet, does anyone know?

Fia's Hairtyping System

First classifier - Your curliness (or lack thereof)

The straight ones
1a - stick straight
1b - straight but with a slight body wave, just enough to add some volume, doesn't look wavy
1c - straight with body wave and one or two visible S-waves (e.g. nape of neck or temples)

The wavy ones
2a - loose, stretched out S-waves throughout the hair
2b - shorter, more distinct S-waves (similar to waves from braiding damp hair)
2c - distinct S-waves and the odd spiral curl forming here and there

The curly ones
3a - big, loose spiral curls
3b - bouncy ringlets
3c - tight corkscrews

The really curly ones
4a - tightly coiled S-curls
4b - tightly coiled hair bending in sharp angles (Z-pattern)

Second classifier - What (most of) your individual strands look like

F - Fine
Thin strands that sometimes are almost translucent when held up to the light. Shed strands can be hard to see even against a contrasting background. Similar to hair found on many people of Scandinavian descent.

M - Medium
Strands are neither fine nor coarse. Similar to hair found on many Caucasians.

C - Coarse
Thick strands that where shed strands usually are easily identified against most backgrounds. Similar to hair found on many people of Asian, Hispanic or native American descent.

Third classifier - Your overall volume of hair

Put your hair in a ponytail with as much hair as possible in it. Don't bother with the way it looks - the goal is to have most/all of your hair in there. If it means it sits smack dab on top of your head, put it there.
Measure the circumference of the ponytail. If you have bangs and/or you can't get all of your hair in there adjust according to how much of your hair you have measured.

i - thin (less than 2 inches/5 centimeters)

ii - normal (between 2-4 inches or 5-10 centimeters)

iii - thick (more than 4 inches/10 centimeters)

If you are having difficulty determining the thickness of individual hairs, this might help:

Take a strand of hair from the back of your head. Roll the strand between your thumb and index finger.

Fine Hair -- Your hair is difficult to feel or it feels like an ultra-fine strand of silk.

Coarse Hair -- Your hair feels hard and wiry. As you roll it back and forth, you may actually hear it!

Medium Hair -- Your hair feels like a cotton thread. You can feel it, but it isn't stiff or rough. It is neither fine or coarse.

It seems my stats disappeared when the board went down and frankly I forgot how to type my hair. I tried to find a thread on hair typing but couldn't.
Does anyone have information or the link on hair typing?

[edited to add]

Nevermind, it's too early in the morning I guess. I totally missed the earlier post with the hair typing information.

Must have more coffee.

Intothemist1999, I found your profile stats by googling. Here they are:

Length: 14.5/26/29

Just to let you all know, this is another item on the to-do list. :)

And CL, thanks for re-posting Fia's hair typing info. :rockerdud

Jeez! You're good! :D

Until I finish my experiment, I'll stick with 1b. I think the slight wave was coming about from the way I was twisting it in the turban. I've started letting it dry hanging down, so we'll see...
