We've all seen photographs of women with floor length hair, but I've never seen that IRL. So, what's the longest hair length you've ever seen in the flesh? On women and men.

I once saw a woman with knee length blonde hair crossing the street in front of my car when I was stopped in traffic. I was like WOW. :) The longest hair I've ever seen on a man was a bouncer in a nightclub who had a tailbone length braid. Awesome. :agape:

I saw a lady shopping who had hair almost to her knees. Unfortunately, it looked really damaged and it would have been prettier if she cut about three feet off. The longest beautiful hair I have seen in real life is Crystal Gayle's when I saw her in concert.

When my son was in the hospital, there was a teen girl in the pediatric ward with hair past her knees. It really could have used about 2 feet trimmed off, it was so dry and damaged.

Hair is ingrained into the culture here. Long hair is pretty common. That said, mine is the longest I've seen out here, after that teen girl.

the longest I have seen was a woman who was walking by with super healthy butt length hair. I think it may have been almost classic. I was in awe.

In college I knew a girl with absolutely perfect classic length hair with a thick, blunt hem. I've seen longer hair randomly (usually at amusement parks :confused:), but probably not much more than knee length.

I used to work with a guy with a long thick blond ponytail that he kept between waist and tailbone.

ETA: I also used to know a girl with mid-thigh hair, which was also in beautiful condition and grew like grass. I've never seen anyone with hair that grows faster than hers did. We had a falling out, or I'd be asking about her secrets, lol. I should go look her up on Facebook and see if she ever grew her hair back after shaving it all off.

Huh... There was a girl I knew in school (she's actually a moderately famous singer) whose mother had long brown hair that was knee or even slightly below. I can't remember if it was in good condition or not, as I only saw her mom back in grade school despite knowing the girl until high school, but the length sticks in my mind to this day :)

The longest hair i've ever seen is mid-thigh length. I've never seen knee or longer IRL.

I saw knee length as a child, but I cant really remember the details of it. Iv seen classic and tail bone quite a lot, and Iv had hair I could sit on as a child.

I think with the average UK climate, Im surprised there isnt more ankle length, but then it might be due to the drying time in winter.

i once saw a girl with healthy wavy knee length hair at the mall,i was totaly blown away i just couldnt help staring at her and telling my best friend "omg look at her!", sadly the girl's boyfriend who was with her noticed and he gave me this awkard smile....total embarrasment..

I saw a woman going on the street who had a lower-thigh length braid. The ends were very thin, but I was amazed by the length. And once I was in the hospital and my roommate was a gypsy girl. Her mum had a thigh-length very thick black braid. And she said my hair was nice. :D (It was around butt-length then.) Her hair was the most beautiful I've ever seen. Like princess Jasmine's. :)

Thanks to the recent LHC Boston meet I met a fellow LHC member Carrie Ingalls who has gorgeous ankle length hair. Her sister has knee length wurly/curly hair. That is the longest long hair I have ever seen in real life. Thud worthy definitely

I'm surprised at how much superlong hair other people have seen in real life! The longest hair I've ever seen is classic length, when I knew a couple of girls in high school with it. I don't think I've seen hair as long or longer in the last 5 years. I've sen tailbone length on a few people, but it's still unusual enough that I remember all three of them distinctly.

My good IRL friend AnimeOkapi (who never posts anymore) has hair past her knees. We joke that her hair is longer and mine is thicker, so we probably have the same total amount of hair.

I was still another small child as I saw twins girls with knee length hair.

It was so impressing beautiful and I it never forgot.:thud:

I wonder how many stunningly long hairs are out there that go unnoticed because they are bunned? We have a large population of Pentecostal and Amish women here and I see bun eating heads on a very regular basis but I am not good at estimating the length from the size of the bun. I think it all depends on thickness and level of curl and whatnot. I betcha I see plenty of really long haired people and never even realize it.

When I was a very little girl I saw a lady at a Red Wings game (Detroit hockey represent!) with hair down the the floor. She was wearing a cape and I told her that I wanted her hair and that she looked like a princess, much to the embarrassment of my family. Thinking back I'm really surprised she had her hair down because the Joe is soooo dirty, yuech. I live in Michigan, though, and long hair here is really common. I work with countless ladies with butt and tailbone-length hair.

I suppose for the purpose of this poll, we shouldn't include LHC meets. ;)

At one meet, we had four LHC'ers with knee-length to ankle-length hair. They are all well-known members here. :cheese:

I've seen mid-thigh length once and classic a couple of times. Each time however a great deal of the length was quite damaged looking.

Sammich
June 3rd, 2010, 07:23 AM
The longest I've seen is mid thigh length, that was one of my RL friends, she never has it out but it's always in a high pony type thing.

Coming second was classic length.

The longest I have seen was a lady walking down the road in Victoria, London, with mid calf length light brown hair- and it looked in lovely condition.

I have an acquaintance with a classic length braid. It may even be longer. I have not seen it down, only braided so I don't know how long her loose hair is, but it is very pretty and looks to be in great shape.

My grandmother had long, hennaed braids to her feet. She used to pile her hair on her head in a braided beehive during the day - they were all the rage in the 60s, lucky for her! - and then take it down before bed. When I was little, I used to be just spellbound watching her take her hair down. It was thinner down by her feet, but still magical - it brushed the floor. :) She's 96 now, short hair.

Probably the longest I've seen is classic length, but if my memory serves me right, I can also remember seeing an Indian woman with a very long, thick braid. (Can't remember how long exactly, but it was noticeable! :D)

My cousins had hair they could sit on as kids because they weren't allowed to cut it. One of my friends had long curly hair that I think was around thigh length when straight. I've seen quite a few people over time with classic to thigh length hair, most of them didn't take very good care of the last foot more or less. I don't know why one would have all of that hair and not take care of it. They need LHC! I did know one girl who had at least hip length thick, shiny, Pantene commercial hair. She was pretty tall, so hip length was a lot of hair. Anyway, I asked her about it since I had never seen it down before, always in a messy braid, and she said all she did was wash with Pantene, nothing special. I guess she had pretty durable hair because I don't think she was all that careful with it.

June 3rd, 2010, 10:25 AM
My cousin is a Sikh, and she hasn't cut her hair since she was little. It was around mid-thigh last time I saw her. It's covered by a turban about 90% of the time, and as a result, it's in really great shape.

Darya
June 3rd, 2010, 10:28 AM
hmmm... longest RL hair sighting was blonde with an awesome thick braid that hit her calves. I see TB to classic on a regular basis (probably due to where I live) and have seen quite a few thigh to knee length.

Oskimosa
June 3rd, 2010, 10:36 AM
I've seen some long hair here in TX, but I'm another one who hasn't seen much longer than classic, maybe mid-thigh.

Just goes to show how special the guys and gals are here! ;)

I wonder if I've seen longer without knowing it? Hard to tell when someone is wearing an updo.

I saw someone about a month ago with mid calf-almost ankle length curly blonde hair, in great condition, down and flowing. It was phenomenal to look at.

I saw a woman with knee length hair at a market recently. From about waist down was orange, and from waist up was dark brown.

The longest hair I've seen on a man was just past classic dreadlocks.

June 3rd, 2010, 10:46 AM
A woman with a blonde ankle length plait. At the time I thought she had ankle length hair, but now I think her hair was probably longer (ends to floor at a minimum, but probably dragging along the ground), based on the fact that my hair loses about 6" when plaited.

Other than that there's a lady here with hair the same length as mine - knee/mid calf (we get mistaken for each because nobody ever sees us together:D, so they're quite shocked to realise that in a place with the population of less than 1500 people there are 2 people with hair the same length and colour), and I've seen a couple of people in Oxford with calf length plaits.

I used to see a woman walking on a certain sidewalk in my town, I assume going to work or back, who always wore her hair in a single English braid that was to her knee or calf area. It had a great deal of taper and was extremely thin in the lower half, but I was always so impressed to see that kind of length.

I don't know if she's gone away, or if she simply cut her hair. I wouldn't recognize her without it, lol!

Aside from her, there's a set of four sisters that I've known forever and been very good friends with off-and-on over the years. The oldest has waist-length black 3b-ish hair, the second fluctuates between tailbone and thigh in a 2c-ish light brown, the third is like the first, only in dark auburn-- and the youngest sports a pixie. :D

The three oldest have absolutely wonderful hair, thick shiny masses of it! The youngest (with the spiky and dyed pixie) is still a kid, really, in her teens... I think she's just being rebellious. ;)

I never see anyone with really long hair around here.

Almost always, I am the one with the longest hair, and mine is only hip length.

I once had a student whose hair was almost as long as mine, and she got it cut to BSL. I asked her, in a cheerful, positive tone, how she liked it and she said she HATED her new length and that updos had become much more difficult.

Other than her, my students' hair is mostly APL or BSL or shorter, and friends my age all have short hair. And when I'm out and about, all I see is short hair to BSL.

Lessee...even counting LHC members I have met, the longest hair I saw on a woman was high heel length on a City street while driving a bus (which I didn't crash)...actually met her later and complimented her (she's a ballet mom). On men, members have the technical length, but I've seen men in person with a nearly knee length thick hemline.

Igor
June 3rd, 2010, 11:06 AM
The longest I ever saw was a polish tourist lady with an extremely frizzy knee length braid. Nice thickness and it looked pretty healthy but it could have used some serious conditioner and leave in. It had that “pipe cleaner look”

The longest local sighting was a classic length blonde braid. Long hair is rare here. I barely see waist length, maybe because the fine Scandinavian hair is so common here and it’s hard to grow long?

Henrietta
June 3rd, 2010, 11:08 AM
I saw a woman with shiny, black, knee length BRAID, so her hair was probably longer when down. I used to see her everyday few years ago. Then I changed my school and we didn't walk the same way everyday morning.
I saw her few weeks ago. She cut her hair. And I have never seen anyone with hair longer than... TBL I think. And the only lady with knee.

Last week, or maybe the one before, I can't remember, I biked past a woman with a sectioned ponytail which went down to mid-thigh. Completely loose her hair must have been knee length.

I work with a woman with around classic length hair. Apart from her, my hair is often the longest.

Many summers ago in my town I saw a young woman with classic to thigh length (don't remember precisely) thick blonde hair, chatting with friends at the entrance of a mall. At the time my hair was mid-back and so fly-away that I had to put it up if there was any breeze, and I remember that that day it was windy, and I thought to myself how on earth does she keep it from tangling up into a rat's nest? But her hair was so thick that even with the wind it didn't seem to blow around much. Mine would have been a brown cloud!

Most of the time the longest hair I've seen IRL is about I usually see is about knee-length. However, at Dr. George Michael's 90th birthday party in 2008, I met Leona (a former LHCer I think) with the most gorgeous ankle-length blonde hair. I remember it was in very good shape and great shine all the way down.

I had a prof with a braid that went to her calves. Must have been ankle-to-floor length loose.

More recently, when I first came to Purdue, I noticed a knee-length (THICK!) braid over in the IT help zone. I haven't seen her around since, though, and didn't have a chance to comment at the time.

Oh and one girl at my school has classic length hair that she always keeps in a wonderful, thick braid. *hair envy* :)

Ed, I respectfully disagree. The OP did not say that we had to exclude people from LHC meets, they simply asked what was the longest hair we have ever seen IRL. For me, it was ankle length hair, and at an LHC meet.

Oh, and by the way, at that same meet we met a young woman who was in Boston with a group of friends, cosplaying for the friend's birthday party. I'm not up on anime characters, but she had knee length black hair.

Does that count?

I just remembered meeting DYQ at a LHC meet two years ago. She's a celebrity. Her 15 feet of hair is so much longer than ankle-length that I didn't even think of her in my first reply. :o

My last years guitar teacher (Ugh, I hated her >> ) Had classic length hair. I actually think it might have been a little bit longer, plus she braided it so it was probably even a little but longer after that! I think in total it might actually be mid-thigh length. Longest hair I've seen in person! She only wore it down like, twice. And her hair is so thin, that when it was in a bun the rest of the year, it looked like BSL length hair since it was so small!

PineappleJello
June 3rd, 2010, 09:40 PM
There is a lady I see with those small braids that are ankle length, although I question if they are real or not. So I will say that a lady with a mid thigh, thick braid is the longest IRL hair I have ever seen. For men classic is the longest I have ever seen, beautiful black shiny too.

I may have seen longer, but there's only one encounter that really sticks in my mind. It happened when I was in the mall, the girl in question was in the food court re-doing her bun and I was actually on the floor above (at this mall there's a random escalator in the middle of the food court and perched above the food court is the movie theater, but the floor doesn't extend the entire length of the mall, just over the food court) so I was more than a football field's distance away but I was amazed by her hair which was halfway between TB and Classic.

That's what I'm waiting to see. Floor length. In the flesh. :p But no one where I live has hair that long so I'll just have to grow my own and look at myself. :D

The longest I've ever seen in person was this Indian chick who lived in my building with hair that skimmed the ground. She had to wear heels constantly to keep it from touching! And I also hardly ever saw her wear it up - 99% of the time it was free flowing and gorgeous.

Just last week on the subway I noticed a woman with classic length hair that had loose curls. SO gorgeous.

Naturelover
August 7th, 2010, 04:18 PM
Where I live I don't see much hair past the waistline; however, I have seen women with hair as long as calf-length. I would be lucky if I were to cross paths with those of you with ankle-length or longer 'cause you are my idols :)

Othala
August 7th, 2010, 04:21 PM
The longest hair I have seen in real life was between classic and mid thigh. It was on a 19 year old friend of mine who was/is a Muslim and kept it covered all day long only letting it out at bedtime. I caught her just before she retired and was combing it out. She let me check it for split ends and could not find a single one. Sigh.

The longest hair I've seen is a woman with ankle length dreads, but that is kind of cheating since half of it is probably shed hairs... the other day I saw a girl with a classic length braid with a yellow ribbon braided through it :) I gawped like some kind of tourist sightseeing XD
I've actually seen quite a few classic length longhairs around here, but no longer other than the dreads (which got a few giggles and rude whispers from some ignorant twits)

MissManda
August 7th, 2010, 04:40 PM
The longest hair that I have seen on a woman was in a mid-calf length high ponytail. It looked thick and reasonably healthy, but it could have used a trim. The longest hair that I have seen on a man was between tailbone and classic. My dad used to have a friend who had knee-length hair, so she comes in second place for the longest hair I've ever seen.

Fractalsofhair

I've seen knee length on my brother, but nothing longer than that. The longest I've seen on non family is a girl in my school who has classic length hair(she's Sikh, most people in my school have short hair.). My brother had very unhealthy hair, my peer has healthy hair as far as I can tell. I occasionally see hip, but very long in my town is maybe BSL.

Juneii
August 7th, 2010, 04:54 PM
somewhere between ankle length and floor length, it was this woman I saw in an elevator at a hospital, it was really long! however not very appealing since it was very thin from mid thigh down.

Elenna
August 7th, 2010, 05:17 PM
I've seen knee length occassionally, but I'm usually too shy to make a comment to that person. I never forget being in a library and saw some people with thigh-length hair. It was magical. I don't know why, but I seem to see really long hair in libraries and bookstores.

LHC meets are different, I can talk to the others. I've met the Countess DeJager and Eryka (knee length?). For the most part, LHCers seem to have great hair color, condition and lengths.

I have actually seen ankle length!!
I used to sing with a small opera company, and the resident costumer had ankle length brown hair that she always kept in a tight braid. I think I only saw it out of the braid once, and it was *gorgeous*. It got a little thinner towards the bottom but was mostly in good condition. I was amazed.

I recently saw ankle length dreads here. Doubt it was all her own hair though and it made me stare in a horrified/fascinated way because she kept almost getting the dreads trapped between her heels and slippers when she walked :p

A girl I took a class with had long blonde hair which she normally wore in two braids. I saw her in the library with it loose once, and it was mid-thigh (and static's plaything, but that's an Alaskan winter for you). Envy is an understatement.

In college there was a girl with true floor length hair. It pooled on the ground when she sat.

In my town there are several Pentecostal ladies that have ankle length hair. There are a lot of Christian denominations in my area that believe women should not cut their hair; it is their glory (from the Bible). It's not at all unusual to see hair longer than classic, like knee or midcalf.

My grandmother had hennaed braids to the floor - she used to pile them on top of her head in one of those beehive 'dos in the 60s, and then let them down at night. She cut it short when she reached her 80s, though. I've never had my hair very long, but I'm hoping I got some of her term length genes! :D

BranwenWolf
August 7th, 2010, 10:16 PM
There was a woman at school that I saw only once. I think she was of East Indian descent. She had a braid between classic and knee. What stunned me was it was as thick as my fist. She was talking to someone and laughing and it did a big wide swing around her back.

I saw a woman walking in the mall with her hair in a ponytail to her knees. It was very thin, but I was still amazed. My friends were looking at me weird when they noticed I was looking at her. :D ;

When I was a child I wasn't allowed to cut my hair besides an occasional bang trim. My hair grew down to almost my knees.

But the longest I've seen in real life was on a hula dancer. It went down to her calves. However, it could have used a 4 inch trim. Other than some split ends, her hair was gorgeous. And actually, my daughter's godfather used to have long beautiful hair. He grew it out for a little over 2 years and it went down to hiplength.

The longest hair I've seen in real life was a gorgeous, thick, healthy ankle-length braid on an Indian woman several years back. The amazing part wasn't even how long it was, but how it maintained it's thickness! *swoon*

Condition is important. Indian woman usually have beautiful thick healthy hair though. It must be all the oilings they do. :)

There is a lady in my city who had past knee length braid. Black, thick... Gorgeous. I saw her lately and she cut her hair... to hip maybe? Moir or less hip. But generally I can say that the longest hair I have ever seen was mid-calf.
And one of my schoolmates has TBL hair. She had it into a ponytail on prom so we could see the length. Usually, she has a braid, so it looks shorter.

About 25 years ago I saw a women of Asian Indian descent with hair down to the ankles. That was the longest I ever remembered seeing.

For men the longest was hair at classic length.

That said long hair on both men and women isn't that unusual in the city where I live.

Everyday I easily see at least a few dozen women whose hair is at least as long as waist length plus. And many men with hair at least past shoulder blade length.

A few times a year I see women with knee length hair.

I live in a small town, with a Pentacostal church nearby, and many of the ladies live in the area. Most of them wear their hair up, but I have seen a few who have been out with it down, and several have thigh or knee length. Most of them have incredibly beautiful hair too....

I saw a woman at a Rufus Wainwright concert with hair past classic. I didn't think it looked great though. It was a blunt cut and it just looked boring! I know it sounds mean but I just thought it would look much better if she DC-ed it and pinned it back from her face a little.

That was longest hair I've ever seen. I don't see many people with big buns (tee hee :D ) either IRL.

Well the longest I've seen so far is mine - I'd LOVE to see floor !! Maybe I'll have to wait until mine gets there :D .
At a time I lived in a very small rural town (1000 inhabitants at most), I was around mid thigh, and there was another girl with same length and similar colour / hair type (well except for the greying). It was funny since it was quite unusual to see even this kind of length here, let alone two people in such a small place. We would just smile at each other when our paths crossed in the street, we never even got to talk or what.

One of my friends has thigh-length hair. It may be approaching knee at this point, though it's hard to tell because it's usually braided. Another of my friends grew her hair to mid-thigh, then cut most of it off. I don't think I've seen hair longer than theirs in person.

Cool thread!

The longest hair I ever saw was my friend Shelly who's hair was to her ankles or close to floor.
It was about 65" long. She is short, so ankle was easier for her!

I have not seen much other long hair in real life. Once thigh length in a braid and one classic length in a ponytail. Both were very healthy thick black hair.

I saw a lady 2 months ago at a store with long blonde hair in a braid to mid thigh. It was pretty.She was over 40 too, which was rare for me to see in my area.

The lady I saw had blond hair that looked like a waist length braid but it was looped back up to the top of the braid. I never got to see it down but I complemented her and asked her how long it was, she said it was to her ankles. So cool very inspiring.

I've seen both a woman and a man with hair so long it was trailing on the ground! The womans hair was virgin, and a gorgeous medium blonde shade. Her hair was really tapered, but still awesome! She had to wrap it aruond her neck several times, almost like a scarf, to keep herself from stepping on it :)
The man I saw was a proper rastafari with a HUGE CAKE of whaist long dreads hanging down his back. It was a bit icky, but a few of his dreads were super long, and the longest one was touching the ground when he stood up. Neither of them must ever have cut their hair. Just imagine how long that mans hair must have been if it wasn't dreaded!

Back in the 70s, when I was going to work one day, I saw a young lady with the most astounding, THICK, ash blonde hair in a braid that ended at her knees, with a tassle that was at least 5 inches long. The braid was thick all the way down (no taper) and her hair was in fantastic condition. I stared, and stared and stared. I've never forgotten her.

Angelica
January 13th, 2011, 11:25 AM
The longest, most beautiful hair I have seen was in a card shop in Cardiff. Her hair was in fantastic condition, so thick and long, so Rapunzel like. She had it in a very thick braid that went all the way past her knees and undone it must've been to her ankles at least, and the tassle was long too. I have never seen hair like that since. Her hair maintained its thickness all the way down, I will never forget her hair! She must've been about 15 and I often wonder whether she cut it afterwards, because I am guessing if she did, she would never have it back once she started going to hairdressers etc.

When I was young there was a slightly younger girl at my highschool with braids that hit her calves. I was *so* envious!

There are some men in this area with very long dreads, but I think of those more like extensions - the sheds would still be there, adding to the length so who knows how long the actual *attached and growing* hair is!

I work in a produce department, once while at work this lady walked by with hair down to her calves and it was in a pony tail! She had extremely healthy thick hair, to was so beautiful that I stopped in my tracks! I wanted to run up and talk to her, ask a bunch of questions, but I was working and she was headed out of the department, she must of been from out of town as I never saw her again.....I was amazed! And I knew I just had to keep on trying!

January 13th, 2011, 01:24 PM
The longest I've seen IRL was mid-thigh. And it was pretty tangled and damaged looking. But then 5 minutes after I saw that lady I saw another lady with same length but her's was in much better condition. I don't see many with REALLY long hair around here. TBL is probably the longest average length. Hair coloring and razored cuts and flat irons are popular where I live.

Now that I think about there was also a girl who went to school with me who had a classic length braid. I say that because she wore it that way EVERY SINGLE DAY! A low, tight pony tail, braided. For the 4 years we went to school together that is the only way she ever wore he hair. It was black and looked very healthy and shiny... I always wished she would wear it down at least once. :(

When I was about 7 I saw this lady with a knee length braid in a grocery store. The whole braid was very thin, If I remember correctly. I remember watching her walk out of the store and I just stared, sooo pretty, my mom was mortified that I just wouldn't stop talking about it.

When I was 16 my grandmother took me to a Pow-Wow in San Diego CA. One of the drummers was an older gentleman with a very long braid. When he stood up the braid passed his knees.

Ultra Bella. Your hair is wonderful. So wavy and bouncing layers. Great job.
A girl at the college bookstore noticed I was walking with a hi and some sticking out the middle. When she complemented me I noticed she had a Princess Leiagh style from star wars. She asked if she could help me find a book and as we were looking she mentioned she never saw a guy style his hair mine. Anyway, I dropped my hair and she let her braids down. They kept falling, past her elbow, past waist and hips, past her thighs. Hers was between calf and ankle. It was blond with some red. It was like the Sun. After seeing hers I have been determined to grow mine as close to that as possible.

Longest I've seen was a lady with dreads. They were tied together around mid calf by making one massive knot with all the hair and leaving a loop hanging through, if that makes sense. So goodness knows how long those dreads are down! Other than that one of my close friends at school was Sikh and had never cut her hair so it was probably classic, but the ends were not in great shape. Last time I saw her she had cut back to about waist and it was beautiful. Another close school friend has hip or classic length straight blond hair that is beautiful. Other than them seeing people with hair past waist is pretty unusual around here.

Meeting Danny Cectai from Eyefear at a gig was amazing as he is probably over 6ft and had just taken his ankle length plait down. It's also the most beautiful hair I've ever seen on a fella too.

Longest on a girl is an irish traveller who's probably about 30 and lives close to my grandparents house, her hair is a natural bright copper and has fat ringlets that tend towards that sausage curl look. It's past classic so straightened must be at least knee.

Lots of the traveller or Roma gypsies have very long hair here in the UK.

On other people the longest I seen was a mid-thigh braid that looked wonderful. Other than that most hair I see is so damaged, dry and frizzy that I just wanna cut it off myself.

Damaged long hair is, in my opinion, real ugly. But long healthy hair is ..well.. guess? ;)

The sad thing is that he would stick all of these dreads up on his head in a big crocheted hat and they would get stuck together if he left them for a while and the weight started pulling his hair out!!!

So he cut it short!!! grrr

My good IRL friend AnimeOkapi (who never posts anymore) has hair past her knees. We joke that her hair is longer and mine is thicker, so we probably have the same total amount of hair.

I also have a good IRL friend Shondra that used to have ankle length hair in the 1980s. When she graduated from high school she cut it all off up to her hips. Then, when she went off to college she cut it again up to her shoulders. But after a 3 month period it had grown all of the way back down to her hips again!!! Her hair was also very thick too!! I was in total shock that she chopped it all off. But I also in total shock of how fast it grew back down to her hips again within a 3 month period.

I also have a long time girlfriend that used to have ankle length hair back in the 1980s during my childhood. It's been 30 years since I've seen my friend Shondra with hair that long! Nowadays, she keeps it cut up to her shoulders. :( I've tried to encourage her to grow her hair back but it sounds like she doesn't want to deal with it anymore. Because, she probably feels that it's a lot of work. But, I've told her that I used to admire her ankle length hair a lot during my childhood.

Yesterday I was at a wedding and the priest had a braid that reached around FTL (hard to tell exactly as she wore a robe). And yeah, my friends and SO all told me that "she has longer hair than you" :laugh:

I saw a lady once with hair that dragged the floor when she was wearing three inch heels. She unfortunately let it do so outside, so when I saw her it looked like her hair had seen better days. However I didn't stop her and inspect her hair so who really knows.:cheese:

Wow so awesome can you imagine dragging the floor just a little.;)

My first semester in college there was a girl who always wore her hair in a bun and one day she took it out and re-bunned it during a lecture. Oh My Goodness, it was so gorgeous. Her hair dropped all the way to the floor, I asked her after class how long her hair was when she was standing and it is Calf length! shudder: She is still to this day one of my hair inpirations, I was so in awe. That was the first time I had seen anything other then waist length hair in person.

Me too! I also hope to reach it someday too! Don't worry. I think you're well on your way to it. You have just about made it to classic already! I really wish that I was there by now. But I know that someday I will make it there soon!

I saw it today! I went out to eat at a fancy restaurant and one of the waitresses had a single, thick, mid-calf length braid. Unbraided it would easily be floor length. I couldn't stop staring.

Wow, that sounds amazing. I'm surprised she's allowed to wear it down at work :surprise:
Longest braid I've seen was about thigh length, so probably around knee loose.

I saw a girl at the airport last month, with knee-length double braids. She could've easily been at floor length stretched (2a/b hair).

I remember back in late 1990's I saw a lady walking in the mall with ankle length blonde hair but lateley I haven't seen anyone with hair this long in ages.
