    If only it were possible I have the "run out of hair and need to leave a longer tassel" syndrome too.

    When I braid, I let the already braided part hang down, kind of a loop and keep braiding and don't have to move my hands. It's the braid that moves. But you also can bring the braid over your shoulder to the front and continue braiding. It always seems to be upside down, tho. Need to braid it by left hank under, right hank under, instead of over the middle hank, if that makes any sense.

    I used to do that, when I wore a braid down. Nowadays if I wear one it's bunned anyway (unless in the dentist's chair ) so I don't bother.

    Yeah, I do that now I know that turning it round makes it end up twisted. Still prefer braiding over rather than under though, confuses my fingers a lot less!
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...

    My hair is braided in a tight dutch braid today, which takes it from between hip/bcl to waist.

    My hair is just below waist and when braided is usually lower mid-back length. I braid it fairly loose and leave a long-ish (3-4") tassel.

    I braid as much of my hair as possible, leaving often only 1-2 inches of tassel :P I braid fairly loosely, as tight braids really show my hair loss. My English braid stop around TBL/a smidge above classic (tassel included). Loose, it's slightly longer than classic.

    Usually it looks about the same braided and unbraided for me because of the curls and it holds the braid waves when I let it loose. haha!!! xD It is about mid-thigh length when braided, and when loose and soaked my fairytale ends are a bit past knee now.

    I go from midway between TBL and CL to midway between BCL and TBL. My tassel is about 10 cm/4".
