    Default 2023 - What's Our Average Length?

    It is that time of year again!




    For quick comparison, here are the results from previous years:
    2022



    2021



    2020



    2019



    2018


    (We have gone over the image per post limit! Older results in next post.)


    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!

    Oh, this is fun.
    2018 hip/tailbone, 2019 mid-thigh, 2020 knee, 2021 knee, 2022 hip/tailbone, 2023 apl. Which way will the pendulum swing next year?

    Mine's been in between APL and MBL, since I got it trimmed back to APL about four to six months ago and it's now at MBL (or BSL, since it's technically the same length) and I won't go any longer than WL, since if I'm sitting on it, it's too long (at least for me).

    Mine was solidly MBL last I checked. Hopefully closer to waist now, but I won't know till the end of the year. I'm planning on getting a trim then, so I still won't be able to call waist this year.

    Im in the green, most prevalent category. Around BCL. Its interesting that this length "wins" every year, with the exception of 2012 when BSL got the stage. I had thought that in the past there were many more very-long hairs on the LHC.

    Last year I voted APL, this year I was hoping for hip lol, overestimated that one big time
    I’m halfway between BSL and waist, so BSL it is. NEXT year though I’m definitely hoping for hip!
    overall: SL>>>APL>>>BSL>>>WL>>>HL>>>BCL>>>TBL
    natural: 0>>>EL>>>CL>>>SL

    I'm right between APL and MBL but I measure my hair wet or straightened, so it really looks barely past APL and that is what I voted for.
