Many myths there are hair combed hair. or implied "average" length. Really, what is the true definition of hair versus short, very short, long and ultra long average length? Even more confusing is the fact that what defines the hairdresser as hair length medium or styles not what hair consumers might be defined as a medium.
I know for a fact because I've spent the last 10 years adding thousands of hairstyles for HairBoutique.com gallery and sat and starred in medium hairstyles for hours trying to understand... it is really the Center or is still short or long? Hairdressers also not necessarily agreement among them on what is the definition of medium length hairstyles.
What to do in the HairBoutique.com gallery when I can not decide Select medium and short if it could be both or select medium and long. If you browse through the plethora of useless "supposedly" sites medium hairstyle on the web, you will see what I mean. Most of the sites that photos randomly without any thought of what it really is. On a site I have seen the photos that have been marked as 'average' hairstyles that were below the shoulders and as well on the ear. This could mean that they are only showing the photo for advertising rather than help guide. Call this type of site waste "hairstyle spam websites" because they are a waste of time and clicks.
One of the middling hair "called" defined as "between short and long. Ok. Well, not very useful but better than showing pictures of people who use a hair below the shoulders. Not you I started in all sites that do not offer photos of hairstyle hairstyle impersonator also applies that even remotely could be considered "medium". UGH. Most hair consumers believe that the definition of medium length hair is hair that extends from roots below the tip of the ear lobe to the top of the Chin. This definition depends on the texture of the hair also. Hair thick and full of curls and waves can be considered an average length of hair cut when you extend slightly below the Chin, but does not touch the shoulders.
Hairdressers may or may not be in accordance with the above definition. Although there is no rule, many hairdressers would consider hairstyles medium length to extend to the top of the shoulders. The point of all this talk? If you have doubts about the definition of average length, when it comes to the hairdresser always take several photos of hairstyles that you want to have copies and not worry about put short, medium or long label for photos. That a hair or beauty salon is defined as a consumer medium may not jive with what you believe.
