View Full Version : Have I reached my goal?? And also updos! (pics)

November 8th, 2010, 04:57 AM

I joined nearly two years ago I think and when I started my hair was about bsl but I think I have finally made it to waist :D The thing is I have layers so I'm not exactly sure if it "qualifies" as waist-length. What do you guys think? Either way I'm happy with the length :)


I also just thought I'd show off some of my updo attempts I did today. Inspired by the forum.





I know I don't post much but this forum has really helped my hair and inspired me not to cut or dye it in ages, so thanks! :)

You certainly have reached waist length, no doubt about it. Also the middle part of your hair looks as if it is touching your hips.:) Do you have a photo of your hair at BSL?

Anyway congrats on your acheivement. Your hair looks very pretty and healthy, and I love the updos, looks so elegant!.:D

I really should learn updo's, they look amazing!

November 8th, 2010, 05:20 AM
Thank you :)

Funnily enough I can show you a picture from the exact day I joined. I remember because it was on my birthday. My hair was even shorter than I remembered! As you can see it was wavier then.

Wow very nice!

November 8th, 2010, 05:31 AM
Great progress, congratulations!
I love all of your updos, so beautiful!

you have come a long way from what looks like APL to waist is pretty good! will you be keeping your layers? i think your hair looks very pretty.

Thanks for posting the photo. What an amazing transformation!:) My hair is exactly at what your length used to be (APL/BSL), it is wavy too. Sometimes it seems so long for my hair to reach this length and I know everyone is different. But you are lucky you did it in 2 years, I so hope the same happens to me. Seeing pics of everyone's hair progress inspires me to keep on going, even if it feels like my hair is always at the same stage, its nice knowing that hair DOES grow within time.:o

Thank you for the lovely comments :)

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep my layers yet. My new plan is to get to hip and then lop off my split ends and maintain at that length until all my hair is all virgin (you might be able to see the slightly darker virgin hair). I may still continue to have layers put in.

Dreamkitty, it's well worth the wait! And it really does feel like it isn't growing even today when I took that picture I'm like "is it really that long?" haha. It's pretty exciting once you get there good luck!

You are definitely waist, very pretty updos. : )

November 8th, 2010, 06:48 AM
Very nice progress, and you're updo's are lovely!

November 8th, 2010, 08:13 AM
Congratulations! You are at waist and your hair looks lovely. By the way the last two updos are beautiful :)

November 8th, 2010, 08:28 AM
The longest of your ends are actually at hip length. So you are in fact past waist length! :cheese:

I like your layers. If you want, you could start trimming off just the ends so that they look thicker.

November 8th, 2010, 08:43 AM
Wow you hair looks beautiful and what a long way you have come:rockerdud

I am hoping by next July to be waist so your post gives me hope that it is possible.

November 8th, 2010, 08:50 AM
It looks waist. The color is so pretty too!

November 8th, 2010, 08:52 AM
Congratulations! IMHO you are definitely WAIST!!! You also have gorgeous updos, which are especially lovely with your elegantly slim and graceful neck. (o: Thanks for sharing your success with us! Have a blessed day!

It looks rather "almost hip length" to me. :D Beautiful! :)

November 10th, 2010, 02:58 AM
Your hair is beautiful! I love that first updo :)

November 10th, 2010, 07:19 AM
Your hair looks lovely, but I'm really commenting because I love your photos! Do you take them yourself or does someone assist? They are very ethereal feeling, classic pretty.

November 10th, 2010, 07:55 AM
Very beautiful! Fabulous growth. And I love your updos.

November 10th, 2010, 11:29 AM

You have reached waist! Your hair is gorgeous :)

November 10th, 2010, 01:27 PM
Fabulous hair and growth! I particularly like the updo that I think might be a sock bun with a braid wrapped around it.

November 10th, 2010, 03:51 PM
Your hair is beautiful really it is an inspiration---congratulations!

November 10th, 2010, 04:25 PM

November 10th, 2010, 04:29 PM
Love the sockbun with the braid around it!

November 11th, 2010, 12:21 PM
Your hair is lovely! :) And layered waist counts as waist, of course:) Your longest layers are at hip, aren't they?;)
