I LOVE PIC SHARING! Starting length to present pics please!

My hair is not long, but I get encouraged by seeing other's growth, so indulge me please by showing a before pic, like when you decided to grow it long, and now.
Any lengths and growth is fine!

the first one is before, the rest were taken today.
Before, August 2010

My starting length was neck-length, but it was between APL and BSL when I joined LHC in 2006. There was one big "trim" of about 9 inches, and another of about 2.5 inches in the last five years.

Here is mine. First pic is the first ever picture I took of the back of my head. It was to show my hair brushed out. For some reason I felt it necessary to "air' my hair in this way - lol. The next photo is the start of my "stripey shirt" sequence in November 2009. And finally my latest shot soon to be replaced by another on Thursday when I take my March shot.

What a cool thread! And what good progress everyone! Lisamonster, I think you're just ahead of me in terms of both starting and current length - want to be growing buddies??

I only joined LHC in January but I decided to grow my hair out properly in August 2008 after "trimming" it with the kitchen scissors and getting it evened out at a salon. In this picture it's been blow dried straight by the hairdresser and dyed strawberry blonde (from a box):

http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/picture.php?albumid=7274&pictureid=96049

Since then I've trimmed it quite a bit (2-3 times a year) to get rid of dye and damage. Here it is a few days ago, air dried with curl goop, just at BSL:

This is a VERY cool photo. How did you do it?

I'm afraid I spent a but too much time in Photoshop with that.
It's really easy, take two pictures - cut yourself out and insert yourself into the other picture.

Or: Take two pictures in different positions making sure you don't overlap and then stitch em together.

It was 2010... I labeled the picture wrong. I know for a fact as I only lived where the picture was taken during 2010. I will see if I can go back and edit...

My hair grew quite quickly during the Spring and summer months... unfortunately, it has slowed down over winter. I gained most of it in about 6 months time.

I started at chin with hightlights and now am at slightly past APL growing out said highlights. Plus, I never needed those highlights because it was so close to my normal color.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4133/5197433855_6b17261298.jpg

I pretty much hit my current length (wavering between tailbone and classic) a couple of years ago, but have seemed to grow a little slower, and needed to trim a little more, since hitting this length, so have ended up maintaining. Haven't truly committed to the Classic Cause, or I'd have tried to do something about this by now I think!

March 2011, my five year LHC anniversary:

and today, more or less hip - this time less, because of the braid waves:

I started growing in August 2005, with two perms in my hair. So I cut a lot of damage in the last 6 years. And I had a grow stall during my pregnancy and breastfeeding time - about 1,5 years.

I really dislike how my hair looks in this picture please excuse the virgin roots. This was not a wash day so it isn't looking it's best, rather dual actually. I'm trying my hardest to go back to virgin hair but the temptation to color is creeping in.

http://i55.tinypic.com/14bpbtv.jpg
I love this one. This was a wash day so you can see the shine and health of my hair. Plus the slight braid waves make my piggy tails look thicker. I just don't know what to do about those dreaded neck fuzzes. I've tried water and a little gel but the boogers just wont listen. My fiance says they are cute....such a sweet man.

My hair hasn't grown that much, but in my defense, I did had a big chop at the very end of March and after that at least 2 trims AND kept the mullet short.. I'm growing it all out now though, no trims for me anymore! My hair was bleached (it was WHITE before, on that first picture I stopped using toning shampoo and used another blonde dye that made it a bit darker, but it was white and DAMAGED D: It's really so much healthier and happier now :D Yay for henna (and trims, I guess :P))

This is directly after my haircut in December 2010, when I decided I wanted to grow my hair.

This one is .. like 2 weeks ago. Brushed, a little coconut oil.

This was the first photo I took for hair length when I started at LHC. I had actully been growing it for a few years before then but I don't really have any pictures.

June, 2005.

A little bit over a year later, I went from past APL to past BSL:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v150/cpolk/Hair/lengthpicnov11med.jpg

and it stayed at that "almost waist" length for a good while.

then I didn't take pictures and I was gone from LHC for a while. I basically put my hair up in a bun and forgot about it. i was so disgusted with "almost waist" forever and ever. then this happened:

March 2010

I don't have a really really current length pic to share. My camera is out of batteries. I just trimmed nearly 3 inches off the bottom, and I haven't done a proper dry to see where it's at now. stretched out from brushing and bunning it's just shy of BCL. I am debating cutting it shorter than that but I'm going to take a couple months to decide if I want to.

If this isn't inspiration to grow, I don't know what is...... May 2001

My hair has never been this short since. I stayed at shoulder for many years and really began growing about 3 years ago.

This is about a month ago

March 2010: the day after a big hair cut (from waist to about APL)

July 2011: this was the first time I'd straightened my hair since the previous picture and I was just wanting to see how long it had gotten without any curl!! I've had one trim since the previous picture, just to even the ends up. Once my hair gets the length I want it, I'll start trimming it to gradually even out the layers!

Inbetween then and now I've had two major cuts, one of them a hairdresser chopped off my 'U'! Then I had layers cut, growing them out, but they are easier for me to maintain with my health problems.

This thread is so fun! :) Looking through my pictures reminds me of how far I've come since that pixie cut... I'm sorry that I don't have pictures that are very evenly spaced, but here are a few:

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6066/6104276482_d86790c2cc_m.jpg
April 2007. This is a few months after my pixie and dye job to fix the damage I did by bleaching the front of my hair and dying it red (which faded to orange... etc.) Please excuse the awfulness and smallness of this picture, I took it with the awful phone I had until I was 16. I also don't normally wear earrings like that... I was being outrageous for Rocky Horror, I think.

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6201/6103753653_f0cdeaeb7a_m.jpg
This is September 2008, when I hit shoulder length. At this point I had been back to my natural color for a while and I was semi-actively growing out my hair. I got lots of haircuts, though (or my ends wouldn't be nearly that blunt!). I'm posing with a block tower that I built. ;)
