View Full Version : Would you call this waist or hip? A little confused at this length.

When I look at my hair from the front, it's barely waist length for sure (ugh), but from the back..I'm just realizing that I might be able to call it hip from this photo taken today? Hip length in the front is my ultimate length goal. I'd be happy to know that I'm there..in the back! :D What do you think? I have a hard time telling the difference with waist and hip to be honest. Thanks in advance!


PS: Does anyone elses' hair GREATLY differ in length from when you pull it over your shoulders, to when its all behind your back? It's frustrating, because I always pull most of my hair over my shoulders in front and I feel like it's so short to me.

I'd say you're right on hip.

I think everyone's hair is shorted when it is pulled over the shoulder since the hair has to go over the shoulder which takes up a few extra inches.

I'd say hip (or just a bit before hip, actually).

You're quite a bit past your waist (it's up about your elbows!)

Agreed. You look like hip in this photo!

definitely hip.. its just deceiving because of the angled sides

I'd consider it hip length.

Yes, my hair does the same thing. It's hip length when behind me, and just below BSL when over my shoulders.

It looks like it is barely scraping hip (definatly hip streched).

I think the ends of your longest strands are at hip length.

I'm just the opposite. When I pull my hair in front of my shoulders, the ends touch the tops of my thighs. When I check it from the back, they don't -- stupid huge hiney!

I'd say it's hip lenght :)

hip! and it's lovely!!

I agree hip length in the back...and Waist is it nearer your elbows. Mine is alot shorter when pulled to the front, too. I'm at hip in the back, but just a titch below belly button in the front.

Your hair is LOVELY!!!!!

Well, shoulders and boobs take up length, so of course it'll look shorter in the front...

Looks like hip to me, congrats!!

Just a tad short of hip, I'd say. :)

It is lovely! Shiny all the way to the ends :0

Inspiring is what I'd call it. Mine is fairly similar in length, colour and texture, but nowhere near as shiny - if I work on the conditioning and moisturising, one day I might have hair like yours!

I would call it hip... And beautiful:flower:

I have the same issue.
When I pull my hair to the front, my hair looks like it is just past BSL.
I too want to have hip length from the front.

Your hair is lovely.
Maybe a tiny bit above real hip length.

September 14th, 2010, 10:51 AM
I agree with everyone else, you are definately at hip! And past waist for your shortest :)

The longest strands are at hip for 100%.
Awesome shine and curls and colour;)
