What’s my hair length? Find the right words for your length!

Here is a very handy hair length chart to show the most common hair lengths.

The Short Lengths:

Ear Length is the shortest level of hair and, as the name implies, it reaches the ears.

Chin length is one of the classics and many of the most stylish looks have it.

The Medium Lengths:

Neck length is most flattering for most face shapes. The cutting line is between chin and shoulder length.

Shoulder length is a nice compromise for those who want the feel of longer hair, without all the weight.

Long Hair:

Collarbone length is just below the shoulder line and gives the hair an extra couple of inches of movement.

Armpit length is when things get serious in terms of a true mane. Add some layers and perhaps waves for more volume and drama and you'll have a very sexy and alluring look.

Bra Strap length sits right where it says in the name, a few inches below the armpit, at about the height of your shoulder blades.

Mid Back length the hair will have a great length for beautiful braids and just for letting it flow in the wind.

Waist Length From here on, the longer the hair is, the more rare it is and the more wows you will hear.

Even longer hair:

Between hip and calf length, there is the tailbone length and then the classic length, which is not named after a body part. This classic length reaches just past the buttocks to the very upper thigh. After this there is the mid-thigh length, the knee, the calf and finally the more than rare ankle length, the latter you may also call the full body coat.

The descriptions of hair lengths can be very biased depending on who is talking. Hope the above information could help to avoid any further confusion about hair lengths and their definition.
