I know what you mean! Must be something to do with those cameras they use to take your passport photo with...

I had a nervous few moments once when I was trying to get a drivers' licence for a different country. They wanted to know how long I had had my licence for, but I had two licences: one that I'd had for a couple of years before I got married (black & white shot with short hair), and the other that I applied for in my married name (colour photo, with longer hair). The guy studied both licences for ages and then asked me if I had brought my marriage certificate with! (Which I hadn't.) Luckily I have a fairly unusual first name, so I think that convinced him...

I feel if you have good hair, flaunt it. I love long hair, but as I have gotten older, it looks better on me shorter. But that is not true for everyone, contrary to popular belief that if you are 40+, it should be above your shoulders. I am the only blonde in a large family of brunettes, so when my hair really was getting gray, I thought "I can dye my hair brown!". I have always wanted dark brown hair, but I realized my eyebrows are blonde and I have never seen a brunette with blonde eyebrows, so I never did anything to change the color. Now people ask me if my hair is ash blonde, which is funny because my hair is blonde/gray.

Grow it as long as you are able to! And, remember, if someone points out a flaw to you, they have 3 fingers pointing right back at them, which means they have three times the issue with it than you will ever have! In this case, methinks it might be a wee case of envy...or maybe jealousy or this person may have a secret desireto have long hair, but doesn't 'dare to' grow it that long for whatever hung up reason of their own they have. Who knows?... I have extremely fine, but thick hair, that is naturally curly. I have been on medications that take the curl out of my hair, so I permed it the past two months, and it came out rather well.

I am growing it long as well, much to the dismay of my mother...who would love to cut it....but I'mnot letting her near my head with a pair of scissors! She has sort, straight hair, so I know her issue with it is that I can grow it long, and she can't! tee hee.....

So, grow your hair long, care for it with the great products out there forhair these days...and LIVE!!

If you constantly have headaches from the weight of your hair, it might be too long.

Again, I'm really lucky here - I also have fine hair but a lot of it, and it has very little weight to it. When I had it cut from past waist length to shoulder-length, I had all the comments about how much lighter it must feel. But honestly it felt almost exactly the same. The only difference was brushing it - my brush would shoot off into the air too soon because I'd forgotten I didn't have more hair to brush!

My hair is down to my waistband / hips and unless I look at it in a picture I don't notice just how long it is because it's very light. I have fine to medium strands and I have an average amount of hair. My Ponytail circumpherence is about 2.5 inches.

I never have any headaches from my hair.

It is too long when you think it is too long.

For me it is when it reaches the middle of my back, once I let it grow until almost at my butt and I hated it but I was too lazy to go see my hairdresser until I was really fed up with it (she thought i would cry when she cut but no i did a happy dance instead cool lol).

It's all up to you. My hair is at the bottom of the small of my back...has been for years. I cut a foot off to the middle of my shoulder blades each year but skipped this last year since it didnt grow much due to stress (i do trim it a couple times a year about a half inch/inch). My little sister thinks it's too long for her but she keeps hers a pixie length. A good friends sisters hair is almost to the floor. It just depends on your style, liking, and if you can handle it and take care of it.
