I find I'm ordering shorter and shorter. Started buying 20 inch , then 18 inch, now I have two of Rexie's 16 inch and STILL cut 1 inch-1.5 inch off. I hate seeing my hair on the floor!Next time, I will probably just buy a 14 inch and very gently 'shape' it. As I'm getting older the long hair all around my face seems to drag it down. However, I still love to swish and flick!
