So out of sheer curiosity, I sat on my bathroom floor (it's tiled, and I can shut the door so I don't get a dog in my lap :laugh:) and tried to see where my hair reached to get an idea of how close to TBL I was. Turns out I'm there already! This is like hitting APL all over again :rollin: I was past that milestone and still in denial about it being there for like a full month I think? It's not quite that far this time, but nearly. I didn't take my yearly October picture (this year has been So Much, I only have January's), and frankly I haven't been thinking too much about its growth the last couple years I mean months. It's only been... months, right? It feels like a whole year since I've been here last...

My ends are more fragile now, and I'm not used to that at all. I need to use a lot more care than I have been (I haven't been using much care at all, if I'm honest, but more care than pre-LHC), and I haven't quite gotten that habit just yet.

But um.. Hello, I'm in here now, technically!

I can't wait for the day where I scare all of you with my butt rotfl

:laugh:


I keep my fingers crossed for you, Ylva. I also have a plan to stay in classic for a while, although FTL tempts me more and more.

Thank you so much! How far is FTL from classic for you? For me, they're so close that FTL is almost a pointless milestone.

Mine are mid thigh ish too you aren't alone! Mid thigh sounds longer than fingertip so I call it mid thigh but will use finger tip as a mid thigh guide, buuut this will be many moons away

Well, welcome Bat to the long arm club :D.
I have no way to measure it. I judge from the photos, but I think the FTL is about 4 cm above the middle part of the thigh. I think so.
Yes, mid thigh sounds longer than fingertip. I just don't know if I want hair down to the middle of my thigh. I don't know if I can handle it. I try not to set such distant goals. I prefer to go step by step. If I have a solid CL I can start thinking about FTL. Once I reach FTL I will see if I want to move on. It is important how I will live with such long hair. Hair is for me, not me for them.

Yep, still growing out the bleach; I'm at 1 year and 8.5 months. Other than that, very busy at uni. :) I read somewhere that you're not finding much free time, either. Anyway, I, like some others, still hope we get to hear from you every once in a while!

Hello! Long time no post. I think the last time I was on here was June? And in this thread probably March. This year has been hectic and my friend is now married as of 2 days ago so I'm now able to relax haha. The wedding went smoothly, I cried multiple times and did so during my speech which was embarassing. Anyway I had to jump on because it looks like I've gone past classic length now. I let down my hair for the first time in a very long time (probably since June) and freaked out when I felt something brush against the back of my thighs. Realised it was my own hair!!! I'm not a picture taker but I might have to take one for this. I've basically smashed my hair goal for the year. I went from solidly TBL in January to who knows what in a month's time. Guess I haven't lost my speed yet!

Also congratulations to everyone else who has reached their goal during the year! I'm not sure what to even do with myself now. Trim or start gunning towards the next one? Is there a thread for FTL/Mid-thigh length? My coworkers want me to try for knee length but it's such a big difference between classic and knee that I need something to aim for in between so I don't get frustrated. I think FTL and mid-thigh are almost the same on me so it'll be a perfect half-way goal. This is of course if I don't get annoyed with the longer length. I am starting to sit on it when I have it out but I almost never have it out anymore, only on hair wash day!

I usually chop my hair back a bit before I get to this length, so post-tailbone (even post-waist) is new territory for me. For now, Iím interested in getting to classic and seeing how I feel about that before I contemplate further. But for now, hereís the obligatory butt shot:

Oh that's a while now! And yes, I'm not usually incredibly busy, so being busy is so very alien and I think a little more jarring than it likely warrants lol. But I'm getting used to it, and hopefully soon enough I'll find a nice groove.

I found a shirt which will be perfect for the monthly hairgrowth 2021. Classic is before the end of the shirt but it can be a good "original" hairgoal but I can' say if I will reach classic in 2021, I trim so much since 2 years. https://i58.servimg.com/u/f58/19/43/02/61/20201210.jpg

It looks like solid tailbone right now, I suppose. Doesn't feel long enough to warrant the "+" after TBL in my stats. :laugh: I'll be adding it back, though, when it starts to actually feel past tailbone again, probably in a month or two.

I could do with some snow, Beautiful shot as always and your hair looks fantastic

Very beautiful, squirrrel and Luna Starsetta. Congrats on calling tailbone as well, squirrrel. I'm actually unsure if I'd gotten the chance to congratulate you on that yet, but at least now I am!

Not the best shot since my curls are just air dried and not enhanced on any way, but oh well :) I will maintain for a good while at this length or close to it, so I can finally get rid of those evil layers :D

"Classic length" means you hair is the same length as your torso, right? Like crotch-length, basically?

https://i.ibb.co/3yHFHDW/Untitled.png

Not the best photo, because I'm wearing my work scrubs, so everything is the same color and you can't easily see where the shirt stops and pants begin. But I think I'm at tailbone length when dry, and classic length when wet.

Just realized my hair is the right length to circumference my head now, and I've been doing crown braids this week (the English-braid-pinned-up kind, rather French-braid-around-the-edge kind, which work with less length).

https://i.ibb.co/J5TZtQQ/rope-braid-crown-combo.jpg

The ends aren't tucked under, but I'm pleased with it because there's only 2 pins holding it up, and it feels really secure
1 Amish pin anchoring the end of braid together to the base of the braid and the scalp
1 bobby pin on the crown of the head, holding the loop in place

Welp, I cut off ~2 inches and now I'm back to tailbone length wet, and less than that dry. My ends feel great, though.

My only regret is that I'm now slightly short of the needed head-circumference-length.

Hi everyone !

It's been a long time and my hair does not grow so much. I'm at 97 cm since some months now. I trimmed but it continues to not grow. I try to let my hair live without trim during a time to see if it passes my butt.

Classic length is so hard to reach.

Your differents hair photo are fabulous so I am here to take some inspo and motivation because it is so frustrating.

Here it is my length https://i58.servimg.com/u/f58/19/43/02/61/img20244.jpg

Your hair looks so pretty! :) I also love the color too! :D

I used to always grow my hair till hip length and then cut it to shoulder length or shorter. Tbl is longest length healthiest length for me till now, but it feels like hair takes forever even to grow a cm.

Yeah, I know the feeling on that note! I've been at MBL for a few months now, and I'm beginning to get impatient with my growth as well.

Tiny! Inspiring as always. You may feel like your hair is showing your stress but I see those raspberry highlights in the sun and think your hair is secretly optimistic. :o

Raspberry highlights! *joyfully stuffs that one in her pocket* thank you youíre too kind.


Thank to both of you ! I'm a bit obsessed with my growth and I'm a very impatient person aha

Tiny : your hair is really shiny and these photos look so soft and pretty : your hair, the sun, the colors. It is a very spring inspo. And I'm so sorry for the stress you feel, I hope you'll feel better soon. It is a very difficult period, take care of you :)

Thank you dear, there is good good stuff happening amongst the stress and sadness. Thank you for your kind words.

Classic seems so difficult to figure out exactly! BCL and TBL were easy to measure by stretching the hair and placing the ends in the appropriate spot, but it doesn't seem to work that way with classic length, so I'm suspicious! :) But we'll see in about a month's time.

I haven't measured yet (I'll do it in a week) but I should be around 1,5 cm far now. I should be there in early July. Sometimes I find weird how much it took from hip to bcl compared to this.

So I've spent a ridiculous amount of time thinking about this considering how unimportant it is in the grand scheme of things but - do you fold the hair around the bum-curvature or to you eye-ball if the hair is level with the bum fold (I googled this - the medical term is "gluteal sulcus" also called gluteal fold, fold of the buttock or horizontal gluteal crease :lol::lol::lol:)?? It is imperative to my quality of life to figure out this conundrum.

I stretch out the hair in the back, angling it a bit away from my butt. Then, I try to place something (a flat hand) at the gluteal sulcus (good term to know!) and tilt it upwards ever so slightly to try and make up for the angle of the hair. I hope that makes sense. :lol:

Around mid-butt I couldn't get the angle right anymore and it always looked either shorter or longer in pictures! :grr:

Well, I was three inches from classic trying t decide if I really wanted to grow any longer. Sat every one in my house hold asked for hair cuts. I trimmed both my grown daughters abut 2-3 inches and gave DH his regular. but all that cutting made me think how tired I have gotten going around and around the base of my buns. Well this am I am now back at tailbone, which I think is my sweet spot. I cut 4 inches.
P.S. I did hit classic in 2019.

June 22nd, 2021, 08:33 AM
I'm at the longest I've ever been right now - normally I maintain indefinitely at TBL but I've let it creep down a bit over this pandemic era. I'm now at solid 96.5cm (38") and thinking I may just let it get to the metre just so I claim a metre, why not...

I believe I'd still be just shy of classic at that length but I'll see if I get there. Who knows, maybe I'll let it creep to classic - at one point I was flirting with going that long but I do think that's past my comfort zone.

We'll see :)

June 26th, 2021, 09:57 AM
bparnell75, tailbone certainly is a lovely length. Glad you've found a length that feels good to you.

I just had my seasonal length shot taken and I'm thinking I probably feel comfortable enough to call classic now.

I shared this in the seasonal growth thread last night but the truth is that this is the better home for it: I got some exercise shorts delivered yesterday for one of my exercise classes and realised that they are a good way of judging classic length for me: https://i.imgur.com/3mR6Guv.jpg
Technically I could probably call it, but I am still 3cm away from the number I measure with and would prefer to have more of my length there before calling it. Iím thinking that by the time we reach the equinox I should be happy to call it and I am even considering having my annual trim on the solstice. Then I shall grow on until mid-thigh length. How long that takes depends on how much I trim, of course. Right now it seems likely I could get there for the summer solstice next yearÖ

Very pretty, Squirrel!! I think my hair is similar in length.....maybe still an inch or so away. I need to get someone to get a picture for me. I guess I can try myself, but I'm not a great picture taker. And I can feel where the ends are, but it is hard for me to see in the mirror. Also I need a good trim and that will set me back...sigh

I realize I belong in this thread now. I think classic will be my end goal and no guarantees I will keep it that long. I just want to try it once. Also, I think I may be able to do the "backpack braids" I mentioned in the "At what length..." thread with classic hair. So that is incentive.

So far, my hair and ends are better at TB than ever at anything past APL before I knew what my hair does and doesn't like. If I can keep this up it will be awesome. I suspect it will take two years to get to classic considering I may trim. I could possibly do it in one if I didn't trim, so we'll see.

Yeah, I’m thinking it’s been 6 months since my last trim. I might just do a few micro trims to maintain for a while…but I’m feeling so lazy about it, I’m kinda prepared just to wrap it out of the way and forget about it a while longer…

It seems to be barely classic when it's soaking wet in the shower. Day to day it looks more like 1-2 inches away.

Same here! Once it dries, the floof eats up at least two inches..

I was washing my hair the other day and it's like an inch past classic when it's soaking wet, which is confusing because I trimmed recently and I thought I cut off quite a bit. It's still tailbone to mid-butt after it dries tho lol.

I recently cut back to chair length. Touching the chair when I sit. While I like this length it has suddenly become short to me.
So I am determined to get back to classic. Should take about 9 months.

Chair length sounds like a nice length to be at now. Or, a length where you're sitting on it. I'm so glad you're happy with your new length. Oh, I'm sure you'll be back at classic within 9 months from now too.

Well, that's the thing when it's wet hair does does stretch a little. It can be confusing even if you've trimmed recently. I can see if your signature photo that you're definitely at tailbone length or mid-butt lol.

Just calling tailbone :) I'm debating a bit of a trim at the end of the year, but still expect to be tailbone after if I do one, so I figured it's time to hop threads!

I also think you're a bit past classic - awesome! I hope that by the time I reach my next length goal, that I'll be secretly past it too :lol: How nice!

This is just like the mid back abyss. It takes forever to get from tailbone to classic. I'm trekking across the mid butt.

I’m somewhere between tailbone and classic. I thought I would get to classic by November, we’ll see. I can sit on my hair now, if i tilt my head back just slightly

Your hair looks so pretty, the colour is so nice! I'm in the same situation (I'm at my dream length which is tailbone), I try to focus on learning new hairstyles to keep things interesting. Just so I don't get bored and make drastic changes.

Hi everyone! I haven't been here for a very long time, but in that time I blew past the Hip length, and now already past the Tail bone length, reached Classic and in May cut back to TLB. Now I'm not too far from Classic again, but I am cutting it again next week probably to TLB. I have stopped measuring it and checking the length. I had to stand up now to check where it is at the moment, because I feel like after it reached my bum area, it's like it's been "the same" to me, although it's very long for normal people who call BSL long. At the moment I'm thinking of switching my straight across cut to more of a V shape, so it's more flowy. I'll try to post some picture before it's cut. Writing in this thread now is surreal, as I thought being in it was so far away when I last visited, and I thought of "all the LH warriors who have conquered this length". And I didn't even realise how it happened, but seeing my last pics here, what I thought was "long" on me back then, looks different now.
I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy through these times!

It seems like this is my place now! 99 cm/39 inches and TBL. I post a picture, even if the quality is bad (looking for a better spot to take hair photos). Classic should be around 108 cm/ 42,5 inches, or a little bit more. Final goal is few inches past Classic.
