Almost makes me wonder if my phone's camera has been lying to me with my length shots, somehow.
    I would think that if I weren't having my husband take them for me! I think I hate that the most tbh. I think I'll need to be BCL+ before my hair is at my waist in the front.

    Based on your pictures you have a deeper U than me, but mine will have to be brushing BCL. Ah, the joys of growing out a pixie without doing any hemline maintenance

    Yeah it's pretty deep right now, I think. I'm not too fussed about it, but will likely try to soften it next year or so. If I don't trim all year, I should hit BCL by Christmas/New Years, so I don't want to do it now .

    I know part of it is just that I've got a good sized couple-a speed bumps up front, but still! :whiny voice: I want it long in front toooooooooooooo!

    I am definitely gonna have a similar problem between BCL and classic haha! Personally I like the look of a fairly deep U. Let's trade hemlines?

    I'll have it there too! My longest milestones (after SL to APL) start at BCL to TBL!

    Arg, I see people with MBL hair and think "Oh that's beautiful and quite long actually" but then I see my hair, which is almost WL, and think it's very very short xD
    SL - APL - BSL - MBL - WL (3 more cm!) - HL - TBL?

    My hair didn't start feeling "long" to me until I accidentally tucked it into my jeans Now, it even looks long when I see my shadow, and my hair is blowing around like a curtain when I walk or the wind blows

    Where other people are concerned, their hair doesn't seem "long" unless it's at least HL (MBL for guys), but I DO notice the texture, overall health and colors (mine's teal right now, and I seem to attract other "colorful" hair colors to my line ). As a cashier, I also chat up others, by complimenting the texture of the customer's hair or asking/comparing the colors (and the pros/cons of different hair dyes) or comparing hair care routines.

    Im quite freak on this. 2 years ago I had a short pixie cut whatever and as soon it was growing i felt it's getting quite long :P You know too long for a pixie and too short well for actual long hair not even mid lenght ha ha ha.

    But ever since I hit APL and my hair is bouncing around loose I feel like longish hair again. Back when I had classic hair i knew my hair was long but I always had it up or braided, so I never really felt my hair was that length. I think the psychological effect for me is to have my hair down and those little milestone accidents that happen sometimes to truly feel like long hair.

    Im not double standard at all in this :P, I cut my hair back to shoulder and its growing so fast that I feel like a have length again. But Im a guy if Im compared to average guy, my hair sure is long and it's kinda not the same stands for women, mostly because is still unnual to see proper long hair on most men.... not even LHC standards.... exception of course, if you are into metal community, sikh or something where msot guys have butt lenght hair.

    Definitely my definition of long has dramatically change since joining LHC, but for now i aim waist lenght and will stay there for a while maybe. That is long for my self (i have a long torso), but for others i think of lenght in the way it suits their body proportions.

    I consider long hip-tbl. Classic+ is very long hair.
