Thread: The Reason for Your Goal!

  1. #1

    Default The Reason for Your Goal!

    If you would like to, please share with us the reason you want to get to your goal length! Or if you like your length, what motivates you to stay there?
    Were you inspired by a character or real live person? Do you want to see your hair's potential? Do you find it the most visually pleasing?
    I want to get to Classic length because it is so eye-catching! A teenager with her hair in front of her shoulders, that reached to the top of her thigh, inspired me to attempt great lengths. I wanted long hair from the moment I first watched Pocahontas as a child. She was just so pretty and I loved her long, free hair!

    Thanks for this thread.
    My reason is mainly because my hair is thick enough and has the genetics to go long and not that many people have long and I don't like to be like everyone else and long hair is so pretty and eye-catching when properly maintained. One person that has inspired me was Arwen from LOTR, she has dark hair and it's just gorgeous. I love it! Galadriel's is also very pretty.

    The reason I chose Classic for my goal was because my maternal grandmother had classic length hair and my father always used to tell me how beautiful it was. He would sit and watch her brush it when he was a little boy. So I want to honour her by growing my hair like hers and it seems that I have the genetics to be able to do that.

    Plus I think it is romantic and in a way, it is a link between myself and all the long haired ladies right throughout history, it's like I am continuing on with the tradition of long hair.

    At the end of my last growth journey I reached my goal of TBL. I chose it then because I felt it looked properly long at that point and I think it's very pretty to have hair covering most of one's torso. I chose classic this time because I got to TBL before and I want to do myself one better, plus I also think classic is very romantic.

    I've had long-ish hair for quite some time-- never shorter than BSL since my college days 15+ years ago. Over this time I'd go as long as hip length, then get annoyed with it getting stuck in the waist of my pants and cut it back. Around the time my son was born, I'd chopped it to mid-back, and then life got busy and I was too tired to even think about my hair, which of course just continued to grow, and then one day I notice it's creeping past my butt. I'd blown right through the previously annoying stuck in the pants stage, and found a new interest in my hair again.

    So now, I want to see how long I can grow it, and have a tentative goal of knee length but may become terminal length. I also like the wow factor I get with extra-long hair, and the option to conceal it (if I don't want to stand out) with a bun. Apparently my hair compacts well when up as I often get "how did you fit all that length into that bun" or "it doesn't look like it could be that long when it's all piled on your head".

    I have never had long hair, it's only ever been collar bone length or shorter. Right now it's APL. My final goal is waist length, maybe even hip! I decided to grow it long because I recently got into metal music... I feel like such a dork saying that, but I really want long headbanger hair! Recently I went to a concert where I got to be in front, and the lead singer's hair was so long that I got whipped in the face with it. It was pretty hilarious. She is definitely my hair goals embodied haha. (She is Vicky Psarakis, vocalist for The Agonist) Besides that, I guess I've just always envied long, healthy hair. It looks so gorgeous. And it would be a new experience, since I've never had hair that's long before.

    I don't have a length goal, just longer. We'll see! I too enjoy stealthing, and I used to get the 'how did you get all your hair into that bun' thing often lol
    I always want longer hair than the people I'm with, which around here is regrettably not difficult.

    I am at APL, which was my original goal length after years of shorter hair, and I enjoy it and would be happy to stay at this length if my hair couldn't get any longer, though I would love to have my hair as long as tailbone length someday if it will indeed stay thick enough at the ends as it grows longer. I find the ritual of caring for longer hair to be kind of relaxing, and I've had a couple of mother figures that had awesome long hair when they were younger that I believe kind of imprinted me with a love for long hair.
