The way to get the perfect haircut is to choose the right texture, style, and most importantly, length.
I know what most people will say, especially when buying hair extensions over the counter. I only need short, medium or long hair.
However, there are more details about the length. So, in order for you to make the ideal purchase when describing this length to your stylist, you need to be accurate. That’s what this article is all about.
In addition to this, you should also consider your body structure and height when choosing the length of your hair. With these factors in mind, you will know how long/short your hair is.
Please note that for wavy and curly hair, length is usually measured while still straight. So, if you are looking for 16 inches long hair, you should buy 18 inches long hair.
Let’s summarize the length chart so you know what you want before you decide to buy your hair.

We all have different heights, which means further variations in length as well.
What Is Considered Long Hair?
I believe this length is the kind that not many people know about.
For the sake of description, you have long hair when your hair grows to your armpits and beyond. While long hair is beautiful, not many people can manage it.
For those of you who know how to manage your hair, you can enjoy the benefits of having long hair. You will be one of the few girls who are popular.
If your hair grows to your collarbone, it is still long. In this case, this hair falls right on the collarbone. This is a long length because you can experiment with different styles. You can also have great layers in your hair.
The length of your hair at the armpit is what we call mid-length. When your hair is mid-back length, it is now called very long hair.
Bra strap length
With this length, your hair will reach up to the straps. Bra straps should be slightly less than underarm length. Whether you are using hair extensions or natural hair, taking care of this hair is not easy.
You can also have a hair extension that reaches waist length. With hair like this, you’ll have people turning their heads. But the amount of care you have to give your hair is incredible.
Even longer hair
You can have both natural and extensions longer than that. You can have hip length hair or even longer hair. Usually such hair is straight. You can also have hip length hair and tailbone hair.
Although you have such hair, this length is rare.
Please note that the length of your hair will vary depending on your height. For some people, the right hair for your hip length is mid-back length.
What Do You Consider Medium Length?
This is the hair that falls between the collarbone and the top of the shoulders. In the past, this was another length that people passed to make their hair grow longer.
Today we see celebrities buying hair extensions of this length. They also cut the same length.
The best part about this hair is that it looks sexy. But it also allows you to style it in different ways.
You can even do a high bun.
This is the most popular because it meets the needs of most people. It is also the natural hair length for most women. It has a cut line between your chin and shoulders. Most people use it to wear Bob style.
However, it looks good when you are wearing straight hair.
If you want to grow your hair a little longer, then you should get this hair. I love this style and you can even tie it in a ponytail. In fact, there isn’t a top bun style that you can’t do with this style. What’s more, you can even wear this style down.
Now from the name, this is simply short hair. It is also suitable for middle-aged and older women. For most women who want or go for a short haircut, getting it right is never easy.
Let’s say this is one of the shortest hair you can have. It just reaches your ears. It can reach the length of your earlobes or it can reach the top of your ears. Before buying such extensions, you need to make sure that it looks good to you.
It’s a stylish looking classic look. I like this because I can wear different Bob styles.
Long or Medium hair-which is Best?
The diversity is amazing. Different women like to wear their hair in different lengths. They all look their best. There is no one hair length that fits everyone. We have long, medium or short hair for different people.
For a long time, women have been led to believe that the only way to look fashionable is to wear long hair. Maybe we should say we were led to believe that. But today, we know you can choose the best look for any style.
There are many styles you can try on both lengths, so I won’t try to convince you to wear any of them. Remember that your face shape and the color you choose will come into play when you choose your style.
How many Inches is Shoulder Length Hair
When you have shoulder length, hair is usually 12 inches long. However, it may vary depending on your height.
How to Measure the Length
The way you measure hair extensions depends on the type of hair extensions you have. If you have curly hair, you will not measure it the same way you would with straight hair.
Therefore, if you want to obtain accurate measurements, it is best to do so before securing the hair on your head.
Place the hair on a table or wig stand. Keep it as straight as possible.
Measure the hair with a tape measure.
