After my post the other day on how to accessorize a long neck, I was asked how do you figure out if you have a long, short or average neck length, so I made this short video to show you.
It all comes down to your hand! And it’s important you use your hand as it relates to your overall body scale.

I just have to say I think having a long neck is a sign of beauty. Think of the classic beauty of Audrey Hepburn for instance. Long necks are… in my opinion, swan like, and elegant. I am all for enhancing my beauty, trying to make my small eyes look bigger, or my bigger middle, look smaller but I got to admit, I strut my long neck with pride. 🙂
I think you’re very right! I’m also proud of my long neck (9 fingers actually). Glad I’m not the only one who thinks so. 🙂
Mine is 7 finger
People have always commented on how long my neck is… I just wanted to confirm it, I guess… 9 fingers 🙂
Given that people have different hand sizes/widths, is there a more standard method of measuring neck length?
It’s related to your own body scale – and is just a general guide – there are a bunch of proportional measurements based on your own body, such as your foot being a long as your forearm between elbow and wrist, and that you’re as tall as outstretched arms from fingertip to fingertip.
