I am sad Cry because my vendor only had 20 inches unit from root to end not crown to end so its a little longer then the normal 20 inches instock.I order a virgn curly Malaysian unit(which I have never order before.I always order virgin straight).I always wear 24-26 .I am so worried its not going to be long like I like it.Can some one post picture of there 20 inches unit or shorter please? I would like to see how long it look when its applyed.I love long length But I am in need of a new unit.
What length do you order and how far down on you does it reach?
I am 5"9  with a long neck(LOL)so shorter length does not go very far down on me.Thanks Big%20smile

20 inches root to tip reaches my waist in the back. I am 5'7. I don't have any photos since I usually cut it to my liking for wear. I have a photo of the back of a unit on the mani pre cut 20 inches root to tip.

I prefer my root to tip to be at least 24 inches....meaning hair has to be double drawn with every strand measuring 20 inches.

14 inches. 16 if I'm feeling daring. They usually come a bit longer than specified anyway so it probably turns out to be 16 inches when I order 14. I'm 5'4" with a heart-shaped face. Long hair just does not look right on me at all! Lol. I like 14 inches with a nice long layered cut.

^^This, I always wore 14" weave, but started with 16" LF, my IY that I've ordered is 18" I think from root to tip it measured around 20"  so I dunno what I'ma do if it's that long, to long for me cuz I'm also 5'4"!!!...at least my hair will be longer than my s/o's now Confused. I will have to leave it b/c I don't wanna cut it but I do wanna wear it ASAP. I'll have to get it cut and colored by a professional then I will turn one of my other units into a practice beater.
 
 
ETS: 16" is a little past APL length on me and to much "silky" hair, The yaki was just to silky for me, the loose curl/deep wave, whatever it is was much better.

I like 16 - 18 inches and I'm 5'9" and have a normal length neck.
 
Then I layer and trim it to get the length/volume/movement I like.
