    Outliers exist. I'm actually surprised that there is only vote for classic.

    Previous threads have generally shown that what we consider long on others and what we consider long on ourselves are different.

    It's also subjective even here, for me, because you see someone's start and their progress so what's relatively long *for them* in one's own opinion, is different for everyone. E.g. someone starts at collarbone length, waist on then will make me think 'wow their hair is so long now!' whereas for someone starting at waist, BCL/TBL is probably where I'd think 'wow their hair is long now!'.

    There's also a difference between starting to consider it long - which for me implies balancing external factors such as knowing someone's probably had to put effort into growing it (I put zero effort into growing my hair before LHC and I was always around hip-TBL, so my perception of 'long' on others actually got a bit shorter after learning here that it's not always that easy for people to grow that long!) and intrinsically just thinking 'it's long'.

    I don't know, basically!
    Growing back to calf with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    APL is getting there, in my eyes, but it is still quite short, nice for shortish styles like the Gibson, the French twist and such.

    For me, BSL is where it really feels long and needs to be worn up if you don't constantly want hair in your face.

    Not related to the thread but I wonder if my baby bangs are part of the reason that wearing my hair down never really annoys me.

    Nope, I used to have classic + bangs as a young teen and it annoyed me to no end having my hair down. For school it was a definite no-no. I hated having it all over. Still do; maybe that's just me, you know?

    I had to think about this for a moment. I think for me hair is long when it's past BSL. Before that hair is more like medium length or short.

    I'd say that waist is when I consider hair starting to get long. Before that I think that hair is short/medium short.

    Not on myself though I started to view my own hair as long around classic or so

    I voted hip. On others, of course haha, I'm at hip and feel that my hair is average/medium length.

    Oh my this is difficult. For the general public waist is long. I think waist on other people is long. But on myself I don't think it'll feel long until at least classic. On LHC and myself I think classic + is long. Because around classic is when people have to actively tend to their hair and growing longer than that seems a conscious choice not just "Oh I just haven't cut in a while/it grows fast lolz".
    No Trim 2019/20 . Use It Up 2019/20 . Daily wash w/Sulfates(Silicone-free) S+C+Coconut oil . CL 2019-FTL 2020-KNEE 2021?

    I saw a similar question on another message board and most people there voted APL. I voted BSL myself.
