    One of my front peices fell out, but I just pulled another one out on the other side to make it look purposeful and I was happy with the look.

    Seems like I'm finally on the claw clip train!

    I just have one of the cheap ones you can find in any drugstore. If anyone has any specific ones that they like I'd love to hear.

    I’ve tried claw clips many times but with my thickness I’ve never found a big enough clip to hold all of my hair up.

    Yeah I have a cheap drugstore one as well, and I can't do anything fancy with it yet since my hair is so short. But it made me so exited how great it was at holding my hair in place without being damaging at all.

I've found a couple that I do like since, and I'm glad since hair ties don't hold well for buns anymore and ponytails tend to give me a head ache...)

    Anyway, I'd apparently stuffed the videos into a playlist on YouTube at some point so they were easier to find than I thought!!

    Thank you so much for these videos Siv. I use either a 3 or 4 prong hair fork at this length almost every day as I find it holds in any wispier bits all day. I have got a hair stick & Ive used it but its much harder to get it to stay for long periods of time & I had to redo it quite a bit throughout the day. I used the fork mainly for French twists but now my hair is getting a little longer I have been trying making a bun held with a fork. Im not very good at different types of bun yet but some of the hairstyles are so pretty!

    Hi all,

    I am new on the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I found this thread for shoulder length to APL and I got so excited! It's so nice to read other people's experiences. So I accidentally spent an hour or two yesterday reading through this and other threads here on LHC (oooops)!

    Happy growing, over

    Thanks! I'm very excited about it, as I've never been able to grow out my fine, slow-growing, damage-prone hair longer than APL (and maybe not even quite there..). Something as simple as up-do's where the ends are tucked away seem brilliant and I cannot wait to see what effect it will have.

    Have you guys had long hair before?

    Not really. I think the longest my hair has ever been was bsl. That's partly why I'm taking this journey - to see if my hair actually will grow long! I've tried having a pixie cut, a bob, blonde hair, black, copper. It's one of my goals in life to test out different hairstyles to find the one that suits me the most

    What about you?

    Same as giraff, not really. my hair has MAYBE been BSL, but it's possible APL is the longest, but I have had a pixie and a multitude of bobs. No color switches though!
    I'm just barely brushing my shoulders and it already feels long to me
    Where are you right now with your growth?

    I've had hair approaching Classic (with help from this forum - I've been here a LONG TIME) and then cut it all off in a chin length wedge bob! And now it's shoulder length and growing again. I don't know if I'll go all the way to Classic again, but I'm kind of contemplating it? If I can keep my thickness and have it look pretty then I will just keep growing
