    I’ve had very short hair for a very long time (I’m talking inches here…) because of a haircut gone wrong. I had it cut every time even though I didn’t like it because it looked so ugly “in between”, but now I’m so happy I did. My hair is my baby!

    I had my hair seriously long for 4-5 years and I recently started cutting it shorter and shorter so now it is just below my shoulders. I also stopped cutting my bangs – I’m letting them grow out too. I am supposed to get a haircut tomorrow morning and I’m tempted to tell my stylist to bob it. We’ll see I’ll probably chicken out! But it is just hair right? Plus, my husband is not partial to long hair just as long as I still look feminine!

    I had to vote, “Length, what length” because my hair is boy short. I have a pixie cut that has been with me for many years now that i don’t think i could ever change. I guess think Halle Berry & how her short hair is. That is the length I have you could say.

    My hair is an inch or so past my shoulders. Funny this poll came up today as I was comptemplating a short “rhianna” style hair cut just this morning. :) I even tried on some short wigs during my lunch hour to see if I really want to do it.

    My hair is middle back-long. I used to have it shoulder-long because it is said that fine unabundant hair shouldn’t be grown long but it’s wrong in my case. Length give it a true density and it has never been that nice looking.

  6. Aubree

    I just hacked off my hair recently because i’m growing the chemicals out. so now it’s like shoulder-length when it’s straightened. ;[

  7. Veronica

    My hair is pretty long. Its right above my butt. I’ve always had long hair except when I was a baby/kid of course.

  8. Jodie

    My hair stops at 6 inches above my butt…once it reaches the top, I think I’ll cut it! :)

  9. my goes about halfway down my back, but it’s getting longer :) I have sideswept bangs, but i’m growing them out.

  10. My hair looks pretty much like Rhiannas at the moment. I just need to emphasise that I did it first…. !

  11. Kell

    If I stretch it down (it’s curly) it ends at the top of my hips.

  12. Anitacska

    It’s pretty long at the moment, about 2/3 of the way down my back, I normally have it bra strap length (you know, where your bra goes across your back), but I haven’t had it cut lately. It’s also in desperate need of colouring, I use semi-permanent colour that lasts about 24 washes, that’s approx. 10-11 weeks for me, but as we were on holiday for two weeks where I washed my hair more frequently (sea and pool water – yuck), the colour’s now completely washed out. Once I have it cut (next Tuesday), I’ll colour it again. Good thing it’s the summer holidays and I’m home most days with the children, so I don’t meet many people, lol.

    I have a super short pixie cut !

  14. I voted “just below my ears” but it’s a bit longer than that. Around chin length. Yesterday it was a couple inches past my shoulders, but I went back to my favorite cut (an A line) because I just think shorter hair suits me better. I’d been growing it out for the last year, but was done with it.

  15. Nicole13

    My sides are to my shoulders my back in below my shoulders. My hair is layered.

  16. jess

    I have waist length hair. I’ve never had hair shorter than just past my shoulders and it grows crazy fast. When I graduated high school in 2003, it was past my butt.

  17. Kajsa

    Just by my bum ^_^

  18. MsKia

    It’s in that weird in-between stage and I’m hating it. Too short to put it in a high pony tail and too long to pull off a sleek bob. Can’t stand it right now!

  19. Ebontien

    Past my butt, touches my thighs. Definitely beyond that ^_^

  20. Kelsey

    at my collarbone. :D it used to be at my chin, so this is quite an accomplishment!

  21. Mine is pretty long. I’ve always like my hair long, short hair makes me look too cutsie. Right now it’s about halfway down my back, maybe a little more.

  22. Karma

    Asymmetrical, right side ends at the ear, left side barely touches my collarbone. I’ve tried really long (small of my back) and chin-length, but I’m IN LOVE with this cut.

  23. Constance

    I’ve had Annie Lennox buzz short hair for the past 20 yrs. Prior to that my hair was always butt length or longer. I have baby fine red hair and when it was long it was always braided, twisted, pulled up in some fashion…..what a pain…..hair ornaments were fun though. I love my short hair. I don’t even blow dry it. Every time DH says something about letting my hair grow again, I just roll my eyes and ask if he plans to pay for a personal hairdresser to style it everyday. I truly don’t have the time or patience to try and get “big hair” anymore.

  24. Ashley

    My hair is about an inch or so below my collar bone, and wavy.
    BUT, I really want to cut it shorter again, maybe an inch and a half above my shoulders when straight, or maybe up to the middle of my neck – not sure if I’d look good with shorter hair again (I’ve had boy short hair before, and while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, but I think that was in part due to the horrible cut itself and colour haha)

    Oh hair, how I loathe you at times.

  25. Andrea

    my hair is pretty long, down to the middle of my back.

  26. Miss_M

    My hair is pretty long, it’s about 2 inches above my waste.

  27. My hair stops a few inches above my butt, and it’s the longest I’ve ever had it in my life. It’s curly, so if I ever straightened it it would be even longer. My husband likes it long and I’m treating it as a personal challenge (in terms of the hassle of knots and it getting caught in things). Last week, someone told me I’m a Disney Princess (which sounds like I’m a terrible diva, but honestly it was just because of the hair!).

  28. Bettina

    My hair hasn’t been butt length since I was in HS back around
    ’97-’98, right now it’s a bit past my shoulders.

  29. Rio

    I am growing mine back out a bit, but it’s just starting to grow over my ears. It’s probably about halfway down my ears.

  30. I have curly hair, so when it’s air-dried and curly, it’s a bit past the middle of my back. But when I straighten it, it touches my waist.

  31. Christy

    My hair goes to about 4 inches past my shoulders. I’d prefer it longer since I paid for highlights & color and I want to see them stick around more. I had my hair go down to my waist when I was younger, but I wouldn’t go that long again.

  32. My hair is middle back-long. I haven`t cut it since past year but it doesn`t seem to grow…

  33. Chanice

    I chose the “other” option.

    My hairs growth process is pretty… odd. I’m a V shape grower which is the way it sounds. Your hair forms a natural V when straight. I’ve always had shoulder length but I grew bored of that and decided to see just how long I could grow my hair.

    With that said the longest layer is actually the middle section in the back. That graces above my bra strap, between my shoulder blades. The shortest layers are the side sections that fall past my collarbone in the front or somewhere over my shoulder blades.
