    Default How long is long to you?

    The term "long hair" is subjective.

    At what length do you consider hair to be "long"?

    To answer my own question: I tend to think that long hair is always just out of my reach. When my hair was APL I though of BSL as long. Then when my hair hit BSL MBL became long to me. Now that my hair is at MBL I think of waist length as long.

    Yay! First
    To me, anything from bra-strap going down is visually long. From collarbone to armpit is medium. Buzzed to bob is short.

    Personally, I've had short hair most of my life, so I consider shoulder length pretty long. My hair is barely long enough to put in a ponytail, but I still feel like it's really long because I haven't had it this long in like six years

    Waist is where I usually consider hair as being long. I almost chose hip length though, because on me I don’t consider waist as being long yet, but I’m not sure if I will think hip length will be long. But on other people I usually consider waist as being long.

    I think of waist+ being long, but we'll see if I hold that same opinion once I reach that milestone.

    When I grew out from chin, shoulder felt/looked long to me; now Hip feels long, and snipping back to waist + feels short.

    On others waist + looks long to me.

    I view between around waist as the beginning of "long" hair. Hip-tailbone length is fairly common where I live so that probably has an influence on my answer. I think it also depends on the person and their height, BSL on me isn't very long because I'm only 5'2 but BSL on others looks way more substantial.

    I voted Classic. I suppose that's a bit - odd.

    In my experience I only felt like my hair was actually long once I reached Tailbone. Shorter than that is "medium" length to me. So I voted Tailbone on the poll.

    However on other people, I think Waist seems long to me, but doesn't feel/look that way on me.

    There's a couple of threads with this same question, I belive, and I still think classic is when -I- think it's long. For the general public around waist.
