  • that's how long I want my hair to be. I'm jealous =( mine's shoulder length and it won't grow fast enough.

    anyway, I think that that's long enough, but I asked question with a poll similar to this one a few weeks ago and the majority of guys answered that a girl's hair isn't long enough until it's at least midway down her back. screw them.

    • Lol..guys seriously have no idea how much work it takes to maintain hair like that..even though mine is thin, its naturally curly and if I just shuffle it around with my fingers it will get all tangled up.. really easily, which is why I cut it off..i'm happier with my hair like this now

    • Yeah, I used to have hair down almost to my butt; it's such a pain and I go so frustrated with it, my hair is super fine but thick, so even if I rubbed my head against the headrest in the car, I'd have a huge knot on the back of my head. so then I cut it, and kept cutting it until it a boy short pixie cut, and now I'm growing it back out again, but only to your length.

Have an opinion?

  • I don't really have any input on the style, but as for the length, a rough scale would be:

    At or above the ears: short (obviously even short hair has to be lower than the ears because the hairline goes lower in the back, but you know what I mean)

    Below the ears, but not longer than shoulder length: medium

    Longer than shoulder length: long

    So yours would be long.

  • I think anything past shoulder length would be considered long hair.

    I would give you advice on styling but I am so booring, I love long straight hair:)
