The very ends of my braid now touch the waistband of my pants! Granted, it's just the very tippy ends of my braid, but I never thought my braid would get that long.

I'm really happy because I've been kind of bummed about my hair lately, but this really perked me up.

I don't have a flickr or photobucket, so here's a link to my LHC album

Anybody have separate goals for their braided length?

Woohoo, reaching mini-goals is great, congratulations! :cheese: And your hair looks lovely too.
I reached my first braid-minigoal a while ago, my braid now sometimes gets stuck in the collar of my shirt and i have to shake my head to get it out :)

Yay! Your hair is really pretty.

My braid goal is for it to not taper down to invisibility. It's a general hair goal, too, but it's really only noticable in a braid. And it sounds silly, but I realized last night that I would love to have a braid long enough to tuck in a front jeans pocket to keep it out of the way. :p

Congrats on you braid goal! :D Wow, your hair is so pretty - I love the color!

My next braid goal is to have a braid long enough to sit on :D My braid reaches to just past tailbone right now. ;)

Congrats!

My braid goal is to be able to do a faux crown braid, right in that spot behind the ears where it seems to naturally wrap. I suppose part of that goal would include the braid being the same thickness on both sides so I don't walk around with my head tilted because of the weight imbalance, but that seems more like a pipe dream right now.

Thanks! I have a pretty bad braid taper, but I have layers, so that's not going away.

That's a cute idea about the jeans pocket!


Thanks everyone for your lovely compliments! And y'all are giving me all these new ideas for braid goals, haha.

Gorgeous! I want my braid that long, too, but I have some ways to go. I think I need to learn to braid more loosely. ;)

Beautiful, long and thick. My braid goal is to be able to wear a side braid that looks ok and stays.

lovely thick braid it is too! i love the idea of braid goals, mine is somewhat similar, though im thinking of stopping at waist length!

Congrats! I sometimes have idle fantasties of my braid tassel touching my waistband, but it's not so much a goal per se as a motivational thing. First the ends of my loose hair have to get there (should only be several months more). ;)

Awesome! My big-time braid goal is that a single braid will be able to wrap all the way around my head...as in a cornet/faux crown braid. I also would like it to be aesthetically pleasing...meaning very little taper. It is a goal that will take quite a while to achieve! haha :)
