    In the beginning I was in a rush to grow long long hair so I didn't trim until I hit my milestones. I felt satisfied enough after hitting knee that I could relax on gaining length and focus on my hemline as well.

    Trim as I'm going, so far the amount of length lost by keeping a blunt hemline doesn't bother me as much as straggly tangly ends (fine hair here too). Though it may be a different story as I continue growing past my current BSL.
    No trim challenge second half of 2020. Goal is growing 'long', healthy, undyed hair after a buzz in Jan '18.

    Back again! I'm not trimming until I'm at APL, I'll pause a bit to get rid of my layers but after that I'll rush grow until I can't handle my ends anymore. I do love blunt ends but if I got near floor I'd like my ends to be fairytale that is if I don't decide to try my impossible goal of 100 inch hair buuuut I got 15+ years to figure that out!

    I'm a "get where you are going and maintain person", #2 for sure. I have never really had issues with thickness luckily, I have a lot of hair so tapering has never been a huge concern for me.

    I "maintain while trimming" in a very low-key sort of way; my shortest layers are far too short for me to be willing to cut off more than a wee bit once/twice a year.
