    Default waist to hip

    well i ran a search and i couldnt find a thread that matched.. ive now got waist length hair (and this time im not chopping it back to bsl) so im almost hip when wet but my waves keep me closer to waist when dry.. who else here wants to grow with me.. any other people going from waist to hip?
    here is a pic.. my hair wasnt very wavy that day.. oh and ignore the orange lines they just show where i started at in august 2007 and where i would have been in dec 2008 if i hadnt trimmed so much.. oh and view the wonders of henna.. sometimes it can look brown like in the pic below and sometimes it can look flaming red depending on the light


    ive still got like 3-4 inches until im hip when dry.. maybe 1-2 inches when sopping wet.

    it took me so long to get to waist with blunt ends because my underside grows twice as fast as my canopy so it always looks like ive got layers if i dont trim..
    can i call this classic length

    Hey Squiggy

    I will grow with you, I am at waist at the moment and due to the loong body I have far to go to get to hip, if i ever do!

    Anyway I have done a couple of trims in the last couple of months to get rid of the layers in my hair. Hair is in much better condition and I hope that in the New Year I can go a little time without a cut so that I can get some good growing in.

    Good luck with your journey and remember we are now at the point where tipping your head back means you can feel it sweep the bottom of your back, how cool is that?
    Wow I am hitting hip!

    I will grow with you. I was recently at 32" and after my end of year trim I stand at 30" Hopefully this new year I can achieve TB or longer.

    Oh my! A waist-to-hip support group sounds delightful. Count me in!

    I had actually just reached hip about three weeks ago, but everything from waist on down had a very strawlike texture from when I used to blowdry my hair regularly, when it was around APL. I reasoned, "It's long enough now for me to cut off all of the damaged stuff without freaking out that it's too short." So I did. ...And the freakout that ensued was almost unprecedented.

    So here I am, back at waist, wistfully waiting for my hair to again reach the length I now think of as "where it was before I stupidly cut off several inches, thinking it would look better." (Which it doesn't.) I feel like waist is the most awkward hair length for my body shape, so why I reasoned it would look "better" if I cut it back to waist is beyond me.

    Argh.

    Anyway. High fives for waist-to-hip anyway. Wee!

    I'll join!! I'm due to hit tailbone early 2010 if I trim every 3 or 4 months, but if I can stretch it out a little I should be there by next christmas. I'm at 30 inches right now and my tailbone ends at 35 inches

    I'd just thought I'd hop onto the thread and wish you all luck! My hair is 30" when pulled straight and only 3.5" to hip but I've got curly hair so a long way to go! My final goal is waist curly so it has to reach hip straight for that to happen!

    Your hair is GORGEOUS! I love your hemline too! Do you do it yourself or go to a hairdresser?

    I'd also like to know about your hemline.
