How To Measure Your Hair Length?
Here are some answers collected from women on how they measure their own hair length:
* With a measuring tape, measured from the front of my forehead, along the top crown and down to the ends.
* I measure from hairline over my head and to the back with a piece of yarn, then measure the yarn with a measuring tape, ha ha! I really need to go buy a soft measuring tape one of these days....
* When I used to measure, I would hold the start of a measuring tape at the front forehead hairline and have someone else draw it over the top of my head and then also down the length down the back, in the center, which is where hair grows the thickest, and longest usually (for most). I am not positive if this is precisely.
