    Default 2021 - What's Our Average Length?

    It is that time of year again!


    For quick comparison, here are the results from previous years:

    2020


    2019



    2018



    2017



    2016



    2015



    2014



    2013



    2012





    I've reposted the rules and kept the same categories, so the years can be compared. Links to the previous polls can be found above.

    The rule with this poll is you pick the length you're currently closest to. If you're more than 1/2 way to the next landmark, pick the next closest one. For example, if you're just past BSL but not yet more than 1/2 way to waist, pick BSL. If you're more than 1/2 way between BSL and waist, you go down as waist in this poll.


    For curlies and wavies, go with whichever measurement method you consistently use to declare milestones.


    Because polls can only have 10 options, I've had to combine hip and TB (I thought that was more fair than eliminating mid thigh, because the thigh expanse is SO far!

    It is really interesting to do this every year and seeing how our average length changes over time!

    I've been maintaining at knee for almost a year now, to thicken up my ends.

    Knee is "closest" (even if not exact ;) so I voted accordingly

    I'd be interested to know who here has physically the longest hair, not by milestones, but by inches.

    There's a member here whose name I cannot think of but it starts with H? who has posted in the last couple of years and her hair is past floor. Of course gossamer and JJJ have been past floor but I'm not sure where they stand currently (or how long anyone's hair measures in inches).

    I *thought* there was a way to sort the member list by current hair length, but I can't seem to do it now.

    And you can always do an advanced search and put random numbers in the "current hair length" box and see what shakes out. There's a member called Hairstorm whose length is 80, but they don't seem to be active recently.

    I am not sure if I will vote knee or knee+.
    If knee+ is an inch past knee, I'm certainly more than half an inch between knee and knee+. But that feels like cheating. If knee+ is mid-calf, I'd have to vote knee.

    You don't go to advanced search, you click on the members' list, I think, and go from there; yep. You'll find the search function right top corner, click on advanced search, where it says to put in the lengths in (inches), you can type words no problem! I find Griselda, not a member starting with H.

    Ohhh yes! There's also the member who pops by in the floor+ thread sometimes ... what's her name? Nope, not remembering. *goes off to look* Ah! HeavenlyTresses

    Edit: My vote was knee+. (Currently nearing ankle and hoping to reach it, at least technically, by the end of the year.)
