In fact, it is quite easy to measure the hair, the main thing here is patience and accurate measurement. Before measuring the hair it is better to wash it well with shampoo, then use balm and mask.

If you are measuring hair length in a country that uses the metric system, your measurements will be in centimeters. If you are in the United States or another country that uses the imperial system of measurement, your measurements will be in inches. Therefore, you will need a centimeter tape to measure your hair the foreign way. This tape usually has notches on both sides, but it’s easy enough to figure out how to use it.

  • Stand in front of the mirror and comb your hair well so that it is as straight as possible;
  • Then apply the measuring tape, where the tip with the number zero will lie right in the center of the crown;
  • Hold the tip of the tape on your head, and gently release the rest of the tape;
  • This is where you’ll need help to pull the tape up slightly and measure out the number near where your hair ends.

Knee-length hair is considered incredibly long and feminine. Of course, it is possible to grow hair longer, but it will be uncomfortable to walk and just quietly live with them. Knee-length hair is considered optimal at the highest point of hair length, which allows you to monitor their beauty and condition.

Thigh-length hair is usually considered longer than average hair. If you have hair of this length, you should just enjoy the benefits of it without putting much effort into showing it off and taking constant care of it. But if your hair is also very thick and heavy, then taking care of it can be a real challenge. It is important to choose professional and expensive cosmetics for such hair, and always braid your hair at night.

If your hair reaches the tailbone, it indicates that you have a healthy and well-groomed mane. However, even this long hair needs proper care to avoid tangles and keep it young and beautiful. The only real difficulty when working with hair up to the tailbone is finding good styling options: a ponytail doesn’t really look good, and cleanly loose hair isn’t always appropriate for this or that occasion in life. You can experiment with different braids, which will create a feminine and charming look.
