Last year I pranked my friends at home (I was studying in Argentina) by photoshopping my hair BSL:

For the rest of the day (while checking facebook and laughing at my friends' surprise) I decided to browse the internet for other long-haired people. First I found Cinnamonhair, then JJJ Long Locks, then...voilą! TLHC!!
For the first time I found other people who loved long hair, and it gave me the kick i needed to leave the state of benign neglect I had been in for my whole life and actually start playing with my hair. Thus ensued:

Needless to say, I love it here. And my friends are constantly surprised at the new cool styles I try out. I'm so glad I found it.
I also cut 5 inches off right after joining LHC to even out and thicken the hemline, and have finally grown it all back, though I didn't achieve the thickening I was hoping for. I guess hair takes more time than that - maybe in 5 years I'll have the thick, even hemline I want, but 1 year isn't enough for the thicker parts of my hair to reach the end.
I guess I should add a before/after picture too, though I doubt there will be much difference (besides wet and dry hair):

That is a fantastic prank, I was trying to figure out how you did it - did you take a second picture without you in it so you could put that boat where your hair was?? It looks so real, well done!!

Apart from that your hair looks great, and those hair styles are just amazing! You must get very tired hands :P

Gorgeous hair! I wish you good growing, so that you can get the nice, thick hemline that you so want.
I am also in awe of your styles - I am practicing my braiding skills myself, and I always like to see inspirational updos.:)

Wowza, your hair is thick! I'm always surprised at how much thicker other ii's can be than my ii hair is.

Your hair in general is gorgeous! And the updos are thud-worthy! Thanks for sharing all these pictures!

So you went from apl to knee in one year?? I take it the bottom photos are your hair now or are they part of the April fools? I am confused!:confused:

Lunnafindel
April 3rd, 2011, 11:02 AM
haha, jojo, no, that was photoshopped. I never cut my hair to APL, I just changed to picture (and to answer an earlier question, I only took 1 picture and adjusted it. If you look very closely, you can see that the boat where my hair was is actually a copy of another boat down the line ;) ) I WISH my hair grew that fast! It would be so much fun to play with styles...
And Florida Mom, the first one I learned from an article here, but it takes a LOT of hair - even mine was almost too short for it.
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! you made my day. :sun:

Ha!!! When I first looked at the pics, I thought BSL was where you were, and that you photoshopped your hair to look longer!!!!! Then, I thought you actually grew out your hair that long in one year!!!!!! Took me awhile, so I guess you fooled me too!!!!! But, it is April 03, 2011 not the first!!!!!
