    This is from a little more than a month ago, so I should be getting pretty darn close by now! It was at knee this spring, but I took off 3-4 inches to even up the hem. I'll join this thread soon enough-- just you wait, my pretties! *evil cackle*
    4-5 weeks and you will be there, if this picture was taken a month ago!
    Here is my ISO post. I'm looking for the Opal (copper) and Abital Flexis (XL), a small (12.5 cm) SenzaLimiti KPO, and a 3-prong CrockettMountainWoodworks acrylic fork

    My four step method for combing longer hair:

    1. I start at the scalp and comb (with my elbow up in the air) to just past my shoulders.

    2. I tip my head back and comb from just below my shoulders down to waist (max of just past classic).

    3. At this point I bring my hair to the side/front under my arm, not over my the shoulder.

    4. I hold my hair (ponytail style) above where I am actually combing, lifting the ends to a more accessible location. I do find that I usually bend over somewhat during this step.

    Bringing it to the front:


    Combing those hard to reach ends:


    That is the general method I use when combing my hair. However it must be noted that I adapt this order somewhat depending of the nature of the tangles on a given day.

    Thanks to Angela Rose for these pictures from a recent meet.
    *wow*You and your sister have very beautiful hair.

    The hair from your more sister is so beautifully wavy.

    I think it am very similar from Empress Elisabeth of Austria.

    It reminds me of hair from Elisabeth on this painting.

    I've been knee length for a year or so now. I really need to get another picture as I've been maintaining and my ends are thickening!

    Right now, I don't see myself going past knee length. I find when my hair crosses the middle of my knees, it suddenly becomes very, very challenging to reach the ends for proper combing, or for part to braid. So every few months I have new growth trimmed off which leaves me about 1" above knee length.

    I'm pretty sure I'm part of this group or at least an inch or less away.

    Here's the latest pic of me. My hair is in a braid, so it is shorter, but I think you can tell it's down there:


    BTW, I don't usually have my hair tied up like that, but it was a special occasion and it was my first time doing it.

    As far as combing goes, I usually part my hair in to and bring them to the front. Then I pick up my ends as needed to comb it through. If I angle myself the right way, I can also usually get the whole length too.

    Your hair looks like it would be at knee length to me.

    The other day, a woman came up to me and said the usual, "wow! you have really long hair!" (for which i thanked her, as always) but then she said, "I do too....how do you braid it?" I told her I pulled it over my shoulder...isn't that the only way to do it? But no, what she does is, as soon as she reaches the nape of her neck, she flips it over her head and braids down in front of her...between the eyes, as it were. She says it makes the braid straighter, without that annoying kink that can happen from pulling it over the shoulder.
    Does anyone else do this? what do you think of it?
    I tried it and it works quite well... I'm considering being a crossed-eye hair braider for life!

    Interesting idea. I get my braids kink or twist free even when I pull it in front of my shoulder to keep braiding, I just make sure not to twist the braid when I do the switch

    I'm only at classic now (I was checking out this thread for a little hair inspiration ) but this is honestly the easiest way for me to get a nice, straight braid.
    I start it snug, go a little past the nape, flip it over and keep braiding. The only tricky part for me, is to be sure and not braid so close to the top of the head as to snag any hairs off the top - can be a messy result.
    I'm one of those people who can never get the braid straight if I pull it over my shoulder, so if anyone else is like me, this might be worth a try.
