    Default Every Inch COUNTS!!!

    Just wondering something. On average what do you think? In inches, what does long length start at? and where does medium end?

    p.s. sorry if this is repeat...

    In my opinion, I think long (as it's known to most people, not LHCers ) is when most/all the hair can stay behind your shoulders without moving back over them to the front. Usually something around APL.

    My view is a little biased, I think, since I've always had long hair until now. But to me it starts entering 'long' territory once you get around mid back-waist. But maybe for normal people, it's around BSL or so. I don't know. I remember a girl commenting on how long my hair was after I'd cut it back to BSL (she hadn't seen my hair before the chop), and I was thinking, "Really? You think this is long? This is horribly short."

    I've always felt like BSL was the start of "long."

    Here it isn't, of course, but the world, alas, is not LHC.

    Anything shorter than a bit past chin is "short," anything from around chin to about upper-back or APL is "medium."

    Though, today I was watching NCIS and the character "Kate," who I'd have described as having "long brunette hair", is actually just APL. haha! Some people, I swear, give the impression of having longer hair than they actually do.

    You're not going to get a very accurate answer by asking for it in inches. While 15 inches might be BSL for one person, for a taller person, 15 inches might only be APL.

    Well, anyhow, for me, long hair start around waist, give or take a couple inches. Medium ends when long starts.

    For me long hair is hip length and beyond, very long hair is past classic length. Medium is between BSL and hip. But this is only what I think about long hair.

    Yes, I have had the "your hair is long" comments and its only just at APL. When I first came here I would have considered apl as the start of long, but now I consider it to be very short. BSL is now long to me, but I guess when I get there that won't seem long either.

    To me 26" start of long, 30" medium after that it will be very long to me. But its all relative.

    I think of APL hair as long.

    I think you can call hair long when its anything longer than BSL.

    On average I think APL is long (though as many have stated not to members here....just the general public).
