View Full Version : pixie to goal, no trims - which measurement should I use?

My last hair cut was Feb 2011, a pixie. I started growing it back out since then. I have had no cuts or trims since then.

I had a serious mullet for awhile, but now my hair is getting longer and I do not plan on cutting or trimming until at least waist, but may not do anything until I reach my goal.

Now that my bottom hair is creeping toward APL (hopefully by july 2012), and my top hair is a little past shoulder...I'm wondering if I could include all the hair as my length.....

When I measure my top hair, it is 11.5", if I measure front and down my back to include all the hair, it is double that.

I want to use the longer length obviously...but kind of feel like that is cheating :p but my situation is a little different as I do not plan to cut at all.

Any suggestions/thought/opinions? Thanks!

most people measure from hairline to the bottom of the longest layer :)

I'm growing out a pixie and not cutting the mullet, I want to see how it looks once it's grown out, I can't find any pics on the net cause most people cut the mullet.
Can you post a pic? I'm a newbie so I'm not sure I'd be able to see it :/
But I'm real curious how post pixie mullet looks once it hits the shoulders and beyond. Is it really thin? Does it look just like normal layered hair?
Thanks :D

My hair was in a pixie. My avatar is how it looked in March. It may be an inch longer since then? I haven't trimmed/cut whatsoever. My hair is so dark, I'm not sure it helps you any?
