I haven't been paying attention to my hair growth of late, but yesterday I decided to take a picture of my back, and was surprised to see how long it was! Can I call this waist? :p

If this is waist I will have to rethink my hair goals, it doesn't seem long at all!

Seems waist with slight layers as opposed to waist blunt?

Is it there! Congratulations!

I think you're on your way and a couple more inches are needed (I am sure everyone will disagree with me because they usually do!). lol

I am one of the black sheep on TLHC and there are not many.

I think the ends of the very longest hairs are at waist length.

What beautiful hair! I think it'd be easier to tell in the photo if you placed one of your hands at your waist, but I'd say either you're pretty darn close, or that you've made it! :flower:

In the picture, it looks like the smallest part of your torso, your natural waist, is an inch or two above your hemline. Your hips are where your jeans rest. But your hand isn't on your hip, and that's usually the most surefire way to tell.

Thanks everybody! It looks like I still have a little ways to go. Not a bad thing, I almost felt disappointed that I was "done".

Your longest layers have certainly reached waist. Congratulations :flower:
Lovely hair BTW.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I did see one of the members put a measuring tape around her waist, and then take the picture, so she could see the waist easily.

Congratulations, are you going for TBL now?

At first glance, it didn't look quite like waist to me, but looking at you waistline, you're definitely just below waist. Woohoo!!! :happydance:

Yup :) I agree with SM

It's hard to tell from the angle--but from the looks of it, you have a high waist, and your hair is there! :) :flower:

Looks like mine, with the very longest tippity tips at waist, so I say yes to waist. Congratulations on your beautiful waist -legnth hair.

I am one of the black sheep on TLHC and there are not many.I'm going to agree with pinchbeck because it does look like you need 1 or 2 more inches to waist. You're almost there! :D

Yep I'd say thats definitely waist! Almost hip ;) Whats your next goal? TBL, classic?

I think it is waist too, maybe you feel it is short because of the layers? I think it would look lovely at tailbone, though you may end up wanting it longer. :)

Very pretty and shiny hair too, you take good care of it and it shows.

Thanks everybody for the nice comments! My internet was done for a little bit, so sorry that it took so long.

I guess it does feel short partly because of the layers and partly because it's still not "well into waist", so I guess I still have some growing to do. I love the way tailbone or hip length hair looks, but I'm not sure I could deal with the high maintenance it requires. I don't like the way I look in updos, so I'm not sure my hair would even be able to reach that length without becoming damaged.
