    My shortest length after childhood has been between chin and shoulders (at 13) and then as an adult the shortest has been barely shoulder length (last year).

    Now you are at the crossroads of your life and all your roads lead to strange places

    Mom always kept my hair in a chin length bob. It was in elementary school and I don't remember fussing about hair much then. But I decided to grow it out on my own, even that young, so that tells you how much I must've disliked it.

    It took a while for my hair to come in so I was a toddler with short hair. Once it grew my Mum maintained it around APL-BSL, with a fringe. It eventually crept into MBL territory. Then when my sister turned 11 Mum made a deal with us that we could get earrings if we cut back to just above shoulder length. I think part of it was her being sick of brushing out knots, and part of it is that her Mum had made the same deal with her when she turned 11. Only she had proper butt-length golden blonde hair so it was traumatic for her. Which always made me wonder why she'd do the same to us. Well, we both immediately started growing it back to MBL, which was my false terminal for years because of ponytail breakage.

    I got a bob when i was in high school, my head is quite big and it made me look kind of like a lollipop, wouldn't repeat.

    0,5 cm when I began growing my hair long.

    The shortest my hair has ever been was in a chin length bob. It was by my choice in my freshman year of high school, and during my sophemore year of high school is when I decided to grow it out. Then, during my adult years the shortest it had ever been was between chin and shoulder length.

    The shortest I've ever had my hair is shoulder length, and that's the shortest I ever plan on going.

    my family shaved my hair twice when I was 1 then 2 years old because they thought if you shave your hair it grows thicker next year...
    the rest of my life was pixies in summer and bobs in winter because my hair was shedding and they thought I'd go bald.
    then hormonal imbalances and extreme stress hit me and my authoritative family kept my hair in long pixies (how in the world is a pixie long is beyond me. just because it brushes the nape? idk)
    Well I don't have [volume on the] crown because I'm not a queen.

    When I was a kid my mom always kept my hair long. So the day before 6th grade I told her I wanted it short! So I went from BSL-ish to not quite touching my shoulders. New school, new hair, right? Wrong. I was sooo self conscious! I grew it back out until college and cut it just below my ears. Hated it again, and its been long ever since.

    Shortest as a kid was a bob until ~6yo, not my choice at all. As soon as I had any say in the matter I grew it out and the shortest by choice was hip, to get rid of the scraggly TBL ends
