    Knee+ again for me
    (When I joined in 2017 if someone had told me that would be the case, I would not have believed them At All.)

    It's only an oops if you regret it interestingly, you did sort of predict it last year too (though not the exact length):
    I'm guessing this will be the longest marker for me, too, but we shall see. At the moment I'm at a crossroads of confuzzlement as I teeter on the snip/length seesaw.
    Growing back to definite-calf length with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    True, so as there are no regrets, I'll just say I teetered to the snip side of the seesaw!

    Not to say there haven't been issues--this much-thickened hemline hasn't played nicely with my fave buns (previously-tucked ends fan out like cocky crests, or I get partially unravelled bun-pony things; those ends are not rapt with wrapping..!!). At least I know now that my happy length for my hair, unlayered, is no shorter than TBL (closer to classic than BCL). And with this new extra body (and bounce!) and cohesive shape that lasts between washes (compared to when it used to get snaky in a wimpy-straggly way), I think I'll go longer again... We'll see--next year!

    Apparently I never voted for 2017 or 2018, but 2019 I was at HL and voted HL/TBL. I've been hovering around TBL/BCL most of 2020 so I am once again voting HL/TBL

    After years of voting waist, I'm so happy I can finally vote HL/BCL! I'm somewhat in between those markers though only a few very thin racers reach. I don't care - what with my shedding this is still a huge achievement, and growth is growth!

    For the first time, I'm moving onwards from the hip/tailbone option! My hair had been there for almost a decade now, but I will be ending this year very close to classic, so that's what I voted.

    Unfortunately, the number of possible poll options is limited, so you choose the one you're closest to. That's also why hip and tailbone are together in the poll despite not being the same length marker.

    Looks like hip/TBL is generally the most common category. I guess that's about as long as you can get before reaching a new maintenance level (hair you could sit on). I understand fingertip is another such maintenance level since you can't reach the ends as easily.

    I'm past classic but a ways from knee yet so I voted mid thigh. It's difficult to get a true measurement since I don't have anyone help me. So I'm just going by visuals not measurements right now. My hand is exactly 6 inches so I use that to estimate. I'm definitely fingertip length but FTL and Mid thigh are nearly the same on me as I'm short. So that seems the best option for me.

    Last year I voted classic.
