    Default Hairtype?

    Hi LHC!

    So, I finally took a proper hairtyping length shot! I followed all of the steps in this article: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/...&articleid=164

    And have taken the following picture:

    Opinions? I'm not sure exactly what my hairtype is, I'd love to know

    TIA

    I think I'd call that 1b or maybe 1b/1c.

    Yep. Ditto. 1b or 1c, can't decide.

    I would say 1b... unless you have a few wavies hiding underneath or in the front.

    Thank you for the opinions!

    Well, my under layer by my nape is straight, and the sections right by my face are straight, but some waves appear right behind my ears I guess it's a bit of a mash-up.

    I'd tend to say 1b, since the overall look is straight, and you have BSL length hair that's having a hard time getting to two wavelengths in most places. With more curl friendly haircare, you may find that your hair gets more defined waves.

    You have a mix of both 1b and 1c on your head. Your crown section is straighter, while your bottom sections are wavier. BSL is a rather awkward length when it comes to a good hairtyping, as your hair gets longer it will behave better.
