View Full Version : How Long Is Your Hair? (waist & longer)

July 3rd, 2008, 10:34 AM
:hmm: There was SO many that voted waist or longer in my first poll, I made this one for you with more options.

Thanks to Jojo for helping me with the options. :flowers:

July 3rd, 2008, 10:42 AM
Tailbone here, and happy to stay there for awhile. After I get the last of the damage grown out and some of the darker henna cut off, I may entertain the thought of fingertip, though :ponder:

July 3rd, 2008, 10:49 AM
Also TB - for about a year.. And after minimizing taper I'm off to mid-thigh/fingertip! (50")

July 3rd, 2008, 11:19 AM
I'm calling mine hip length. Even though I swore I'd leave that milestone out. :p

July 3rd, 2008, 11:21 AM
Recently hit waist here, but my goal is knee. So here's hoping. :)

July 3rd, 2008, 11:41 AM
I'm a bit past classic length here, and I'm hoping for at least 6 to 12" of length without too much taper. I'll just have to wait and see though.

July 3rd, 2008, 11:43 AM
I'm right at waist currently (when wavy!) and will be maintaining for a little while. I think I may see tailbone in the future, though...:wink:

July 3rd, 2008, 11:43 AM
I voted hip, but I'm a little past that on a straight day, barely that on a curly day.

July 3rd, 2008, 12:07 PM
I voted for thigh :) I reached fingertip and plan to maintain there for a while until my hemline thickens up a bit.

OR Cowgirl
July 3rd, 2008, 12:24 PM
Not quite to fingertip but well past classic! I've thought about trimming but I really want to see if I can make my goal so no substantial trimming until I hit 50 inches! Then I think I'll maintain for a while and let the new growth from last years shed try to catch up.


July 3rd, 2008, 12:28 PM
I cut mine off level with my wrists twice a year as I know that it's easy to tie up at that length and it won't get so long that I end up sitting on it before the next cut!

July 3rd, 2008, 01:46 PM
I'm at a solid tailbone - that's tailbone at wet, dry, and curly. I'm probably going to have to cut a few inches soon, as old damage is getting too full of splits to be worth saving.

July 3rd, 2008, 02:37 PM
I voted TB, but it's between TB and butt . My shorter sides have finally reached waist! They've been growing good, and the back length has grown a bit slower.

July 3rd, 2008, 03:17 PM
I'm pretty much at hip length right now :)

July 3rd, 2008, 03:38 PM
I voted TB, but it's between TB and butt . My shorter sides have finally reached waist! They've been growing good, and the back length has grown a bit slower.
then you definitely need a new sig pic!

July 3rd, 2008, 04:02 PM
I am at mid-thigh (50 inches) and holding for a while. Then it is onward to knee.

July 3rd, 2008, 06:30 PM
I voted hip, but I'm a little past that on a straight day, barely that on a curly day.

holy moly, when was it you cut March? you gone from waist to hip in 14 weeks! that has to be a record. Well done!

July 3rd, 2008, 06:34 PM
i voted waist. it was at tailbone for a while and i'm trying to decide if i want it to TB again or even something like classic. i've been entertaining the idea of classic (with fairytale ends maybe?) for a few days now. the longest it's ever been is TB so something like classic is pretty dramatic for me to think about.

July 4th, 2008, 01:35 AM
I am right at hip length right now but my hair has not had any growth really last month, probably due to stress, because I have found more hair falling out then usual.:( But I want to get to at least tb so crossing my fingers and hoping to get there!

July 4th, 2008, 02:01 AM
Thanks for making a poll for everyone at waist and beyond! My hair is swiftly approaching mid-calf.

July 4th, 2008, 02:42 AM
My hair is waist-lenght.

July 4th, 2008, 04:13 AM
I voted tailbone, though I'm a bit past that now - but not quite 'butt length'.

July 4th, 2008, 04:13 AM
I voted waist, although the tips are now past it - but I don't know where my hips are! :silly:

July 4th, 2008, 09:14 AM
I voted hip length. I hope to be at TB by the end of the year.

July 4th, 2008, 01:53 PM
Thanks for making a poll for everyone at waist and beyond! My hair is swiftly approaching mid-calf.

Your welcome. :)

July 4th, 2008, 04:05 PM
Still butt length..I should trim less often..:rolleyes:

July 4th, 2008, 04:31 PM
Knee+, so I voted calf, though I don't feel I'm really at that length yet...

July 4th, 2008, 04:42 PM
I'm a few inches shy of classic so I said butt length. I don't even know if I'm sitting on it yet since it's always up, hrm.....

July 5th, 2008, 03:22 PM
My hair has blunt ends at the middle of my hips. Not sure what my length goal is, anymore.

Samara Morgan
July 5th, 2008, 04:47 PM
I'm at tailbone but would like it longer, however for the moment I'm trying to thicken the ends up... :)

July 5th, 2008, 11:12 PM
I'm currently at tail bone length and I hope to grow it to classic some day.

July 6th, 2008, 07:19 AM
Butt lenght

akka naeda
July 6th, 2008, 07:59 AM
I'm at knee at the moment and debating whether to thicken the ends or allow it to grow a bit longer.

July 6th, 2008, 09:47 AM
TB for now... debating a trim to even up my hemline or letting it grow so I can see what terminal is sooner!

July 6th, 2008, 04:09 PM
Mine is butt length. :)

July 6th, 2008, 04:36 PM
Calf. I was at ankle in January but want thicker ends. Time for another trim for me (smaller trim than last time)!

July 6th, 2008, 04:50 PM
Mine has a reasonable number of strands at classic, but about 2/3 just short of that, and my hemline is decidedly wispy and thin now due to shedding, so I put butt length. I don't think it's going to get much longer now so I'm close to terminal.

July 7th, 2008, 02:23 PM
Just reached waist, but going for hip or tailbone. We'll see when we get there!

July 7th, 2008, 03:39 PM
My hair is closer to tailbone than to hip at the moment, so voted tailbone.

July 7th, 2008, 03:48 PM
I recently cut from TB to hip to get rid of thin ends, now growing again.

July 7th, 2008, 04:39 PM
Just cut off about 10" last week, so I'm back to hip length. It feels so short!

I used to think that I would grow it out and see where terminal length is on me, but now I'm not so sure. I'm really enjoying it again at this length.

July 8th, 2008, 08:32 AM
Ah, much better poll!


July 8th, 2008, 08:39 AM
I'm a bit past classic, but only the wispy ends. I prefer a thicker hemline visually but am not cutting it blunt because tapered ends are easier to tuck into buns.

July 8th, 2008, 10:02 AM
Hip. Tailbone when wet, but I need to cut it to thicken my ends, but I can´t still decide, I´ll probably wait how much it grows during summer.

July 9th, 2008, 12:40 AM
Mine is currently at an inch below my knees, but it is so thin at the ends! I don't cut my hair, but hopefully in a few years, the short, new hairs will grow and it will thicken up. I really don't care if it grew another inch. But I wish it were thicker, so I'll just have to wait and see...

July 9th, 2008, 11:17 PM
Just recently reached the tops of my ankles. Weird tickles on the tops of my feet when I lower my head :) I always think it's our cat looking for attention.

July 11th, 2008, 02:14 AM
I put tailbone, but I'm now about an inch past that.

July 11th, 2008, 03:42 AM
I've been at classic for two years, gradually trimming out dratted layers.

After seeing Stagecoach's gorgeous sig pic today, for the first time I feel like I really want to go longer. I think I will try for thigh-length! :D

July 12th, 2008, 02:03 PM
Classic - but only just with fairytale (partly artificial from old layers) ends

July 12th, 2008, 02:33 PM
Past tailbone and not yet classic - I guess that's butt-length!

July 12th, 2008, 02:39 PM
I voted butt length, but I think Im at classic really. Now Im going for thigh length.

July 13th, 2008, 04:14 AM
I'm almost (something like an inch) from waist...

August 29th, 2008, 02:08 PM
Bumping this up

August 29th, 2008, 02:50 PM
Mine is closer to waist than tailbone--it was 32" last time I measured--will update in Sept. '08

August 29th, 2008, 02:52 PM
I'm at waist, with hip as a 6-8 month goal in sight! :)

August 29th, 2008, 04:45 PM
I'm halfway between waist and hips

August 29th, 2008, 05:59 PM
I'm a little past waist.
Not sure what the next milestone is, guess I need to find the article to read huh.

August 29th, 2008, 08:27 PM
Thigh length and staying there for a little while.

August 29th, 2008, 08:32 PM
I'm just barely at waist now, and past waist when pulled straight.

August 30th, 2008, 12:05 AM
I'm at TBL (with fairytale ends).

September 2nd, 2008, 03:55 AM
Gee, with all the choices longer than waist....I feel like I have a bob.

September 3rd, 2008, 05:29 AM
I voted classic. Had about 2 inches cut off the other day but I'm still about that length. been wondering if I should go back to waist length hair and stay there as it tangles less at that length than it does now - and until i master some updo's my plait keeps getting caught on my chair at work :(

March 17th, 2009, 09:44 AM
waist seems to be leading at the moment?

March 17th, 2009, 10:10 AM
I am in between waist and hip, so I picked waist? :)

March 17th, 2009, 10:22 AM
Hip . But I need to cut it to thicken my ends (all 3 month 1cm/0.39") .

March 17th, 2009, 10:25 AM
I am so close to hip. I only like an inch or so.

March 17th, 2009, 11:11 AM
Tailbone-ish. The ends are an inch or two past, but I'm still on the top portion of the bottom, so probably not "butt length" yet.

The last few days I've noticed that loose hair is getting in the way when I put on pants and try to get my belt threaded through, so it's far enough past that length that tilting my head or leaning a bit no longer gets the hair out of the way. (I may need to start putting it up before I get dressed!)

March 17th, 2009, 11:12 AM
Hip. I'm going to cut it back to waist in the next few days though.

March 17th, 2009, 11:14 AM
Tailbone here, with hopes to be classic by December.

March 18th, 2009, 09:29 PM
I am slightly past finger tip so I picked thigh.

March 18th, 2009, 09:49 PM
I'm at just about knee, so that's what I voted....

Gonna grow until it stops or I trip on it, I guess.

July 26th, 2009, 06:03 PM
Right now is hip length! going on tailbone on between August-September 2009 - Classic about November-December 2009!

July 28th, 2009, 07:05 AM

July 28th, 2009, 09:57 AM
I'm at hip.

July 28th, 2009, 11:48 PM
I want to meet each and everyone one of you who voted! :D

I'm ecstatic to see so many people here with at least waist length hair! Currently, my ends come down over my butt.

July 29th, 2009, 12:16 AM
I'm smack in the middle of tailbone.

I have about 5 - 6 inches more until classic.

July 29th, 2009, 12:40 AM
Hip for me. Grow, hair! Grow!!! http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll23/hootietoot/lol-1.gif

July 29th, 2009, 05:35 AM
sigh...I'm only at waist. =[ But looking back at some old pictures I'm happy with the progress...

July 29th, 2009, 06:49 AM
Well, waist at the moment. Only.
But much more to come.:cool:

July 29th, 2009, 06:53 AM
I am somewhere near mid thigh. I have not measured in months and I am not positive exactly where my hair falls. Beyond classic now. I am considering trimming back to classic and holding there for post baby re-growth to catch up.

July 29th, 2009, 08:27 PM
Waist for me! I might hang out here awhile or at hip to deal with past damage... it does get quite tangly down there.

July 30th, 2009, 10:17 PM
Between butt and classic with a decent straight hemline. I still havent gotten a picture up yet. Hope to soon.

July 30th, 2009, 10:54 PM
I guess I am at hip. I am definitely a few inches past waist (sorry no pic...I have a hard time posting pics, especially in my album) but I don't feel like am at legitimate tailbone yet. Is hip the top of the pelvic bones or what?

July 31st, 2009, 12:40 AM
I'm just a couple inches past waist when wet. When dry it sits just above waist.

August 1st, 2009, 07:18 PM
My hair is tailbone when wet or the curl is combed out. With the curl, the longest strands are just reaching tailbone, but the majority is around waist level.

August 1st, 2009, 07:45 PM
I'm at tail bone. I'm hoping for classic. We will see what happens.

August 1st, 2009, 08:15 PM
I put butt, as I am past TB and not yet classic.

August 10th, 2009, 07:33 PM
Wow! This poll was started over a year ago, and it still is vote-able. :D I voted classic, since my ends touch the tops of my legs - I'm about an inch down past my butt right now. :cheese:

It's cool to look back over this poll and see where people were a year ago, and to see how and if their goals have changed. Who else besides Lady Godiva voted floor? I see there are 2 votes in that category, but I only saw her post. I apologize if I've overlooked the second. :)

August 12th, 2009, 10:22 PM
I voted TB. That's where my hair is now. Usually once it hits my tailbone, my husband trims it up to waist length for me. I'm always torn between letting it grow more, or trimming it up. We'll see... maybe I'll just see how far it gets this time. :)

August 12th, 2009, 11:11 PM
Today, my hair is halfway between hip and TB. I voted hip.

Carrie Ingalls
August 13th, 2009, 06:48 PM
My hair is at ankle length and I'm keeping it there for the time being while I pay more attention to it and continue to learn what it likes.

August 14th, 2009, 08:19 AM
At the moment it is a little beyond waistlenght, but not hiplenght yet. My goal is kneelenght, but my guess is when I get there I want to go further down!!!

August 14th, 2009, 02:16 PM
Butt length, it is between tailbone and classic.

April 9th, 2016, 12:05 AM
I voted TB as the longest part is that long...hoping the rest will catch up soon then i will cut a straight hem line to help thickness.

April 9th, 2016, 12:10 AM
I voted waist because that's where it is when dry and curly. Wet it is at hip.

April 9th, 2016, 12:22 AM
I was naughty and voted Classic, I am close to it now and classic sounded better than butt length. That's my story and I'm sticking to it ;) Actually I probably am classic when wet, I should check.

April 11th, 2016, 02:08 PM
I'm currently at BCL

April 11th, 2016, 03:10 PM
My hair is at hip. It won't grow more than that. But that's okay. I'm happy with it.

Groovy Granny
April 11th, 2016, 03:40 PM
Waist + and closing in on hip in the next month or so; that is my final goal....really :eyebrows:

June 10th, 2016, 08:29 PM
I misunderstood the question at first, my hair is to my mid back.

June 11th, 2016, 05:53 AM
About hip, but it's time for my six month trim so it will soon be a little shorter for a while.

June 11th, 2016, 07:20 AM
I have just reached classic this summer well the longest part of it anyway...

June 11th, 2016, 07:24 AM
Past waist, not yet tailbone... There should be a "kinda in your bum crack" option 😜

Kat-Rinn Naido
April 22nd, 2017, 01:07 PM

Waist + and closing in on hip in the next month or so; that is my final goal....really :eyebrows:

Today 4/22/17:
I cut back to waist TWICE in the past year.
THIS is my final goal....my 'sweet spot' in the 1960's ....and now again in my 60's :o

April 23rd, 2017, 10:50 PM
Waist, where it seems to be stuck. :?

April 24th, 2017, 12:22 AM
mine is at or almost at waist! but its in layers so it still feels way to short for me

maybe sparrow
April 24th, 2017, 12:24 AM
Waist, but I am high-waisted.

April 24th, 2017, 03:29 PM
I was classic when I voted for this poll. And I never answered in this thread. :o

I am hip+ now, obviously I cut back (last November).

April 25th, 2017, 11:22 AM
Two inches from tailbone, blunt hemline.

April 26th, 2017, 02:05 PM
I am Waist+.

April 26th, 2017, 05:47 PM
I am mid-thigh.

April 26th, 2017, 06:20 PM
Right at the top of my buttcrack. :p

May 18th, 2017, 09:09 AM
I love the "butt" option, which is where I belong, too. It's no longer TBL, not yet classic, this territory needs a name! :D

May 18th, 2017, 11:24 AM
Me too, I am at butt and wondered what to call it. I am pretty close to what I want to be my happy spot. I do not want to be able to actually sit on the hair just have it touch the chair when I sit. Besides it is getting pretty hard to brush wile styling and much longer will be logistically much harder.

June 1st, 2017, 05:26 PM
Butt length for me too, and I want it to touch the chair when I sit.
