    Default From hip to chin: and I'm back again...

    Hey hey hey all you wonderful LHCers!

    So now that I've gone from hip to chin and have been at chin for 2.5 years methinks I'm in the mood for long again - but not as long as before. Just APL - long enough for sticks and clips again.

    So I'm currently at just below chin and can justbarely pull it back into a teenytiny ponytail which is nice actually. I've also added bangs which has been awesome.

    Here's my conundrum...anybody have any cute style ideas/updo's for this length? I haven't had to do the grow out from this length since the mid 90s....

    Welcome back! I am just about in the same boat. Lopped off my mid-thigh hair a few years ago, kept it around chin, decided to grow it back out, and now it's at APL. I've been wearing a lot of barrettes and headbands. I put it in two low ponytails in back for the gym for a long time but now it's finally long enough for a single ponytail. I wear barrettes, mostly.

    I could do a French plait at apl or how about the twisting your hair from the bottom and using a jaw clip half way along the twist, leaving some hair out if that makes sense or double braids, scrunchie bun, or French plait with the ends tucked under, lots of options at this length! Welcome back by the way!

    Hey! So good to see you posting!

    Now, what from before are you using? What was helpful in your shortie sojourn?

    I did the same sort of thing- I chopped my hair off to chin and now it's growing back out. I found that really the only things I could do were put a few hairpins in it to keep it out of my face.

    Happy hair growing!

    Basically I throw in a few pins every once and awhile as well but that's about it. I keep trying to do an updo - of any kind - but it ain't happening. I'll have to post updated pix at some point

    On the upside I still have my original pony tail from when I cut it off. 24" long!!! I was thinking of having it made into a clip I was going to sell it but cancelled the deal...
