    My hair measures 39-1/4 inches and classic length will be about 44" long. Sigh ......... I don't even know if my hair will get that long. I've only had 3/4 of an inch of growth in the past 3 months.

    Hey! It's awesome to see all of you around the same place in your journey as me, whether you're here for good or still growing.

    Oh my gosh, I love rope braids at this length too! They're so pretty. I wore double rope braids yesterday and saw lots of envious looks.

    I've just reached 'classic when wet'! LOL!
    Maybe I'll hit 'classic when dry' by the end of the NZ summer (end of Feb), if I'm lucky?!?!
    Wow, that's not too long now! How exciting!!!

    What a great length to have terminal!

    I have about four or five inches to grow before I hit classic. In between reaching that goal I am looking for a good place to get some soft long layers cut into the length of my hair so it has more of a style when I wear it down as it grows longer.

    Plus if my ends are too blunt they poke out of my updos which I wear a lot as it gets longer.
    I have lots of layers in the front, which I love, and bangs. Front layers are good at this length I think since all over layering makes my hair look messy and broken. I just don't have the right hairtype for layers+long hair.
    I also don't like blunt ends at this length - my U-shape has helped a lot with updoes.

    Spidermom, I thought I'd see you here! We've been growing together for a while now. It's also 44" for me and I think 3/4" in 3 months is nothing to sneeze at - I know that's slower than you're used to but that's still lots of good growth! Are you planning on going longer than classic or undecided?

    What about the rest of you? Are you staying between tailbone and classic on purpose? If classic is your goal, is it just an intermediary goal or is that your final answer?

    I change my mind every hour or two. Sometimes I want to grow on to terminal length just to see what it is. Other times I feel like I can't wait to cut back to waist or maybe even BSL. I love looking at long hair, but I don't spend that much time looking at myself, so I think I'm most aware of my long hair as a hassle. I do find it rather soothing to comb out; it's like a trigger that helps me to relax.

    I also like combing mine - it's a nice relaxing thing to do in the evenings. I've had DH offer to comb it for me too - a handful of times - and it's been so nice.

    I'm barely at tailbone now (since I trimmed last week). It will probably take me over a year to get to classic. My growth has slowed down and I'm trimming off the damage/dyed hair. I don't know how long I'll let it grow. I would like to get to fingertip, but I don't know if my hair will grow that long. I will have to see what my virgin hair is capable of once this damaged stuff is gone (many years down the road).

    Between growing and trimming I've bounced between tailbone and classic for awhile, and plan to hang out here until my hemline thickens a bit (probably a year or so). Then I'll make a break for fingertip

    I like the idea of fingertip as well. Tailbone seems like a nice place to stay if you've got damage to trim off. Long enough to put it up in all sorts of dos! I also have a growing goal that's many years down the road - I'd like to be this long or longer with all virgin hair. Someday!

    Woohoo!! Do you grow to classic and then cut back to tailbone or is it more random than that? I like the image of your hair escaping and making a break for a longer length. Teehee!

    Eh, I do microtrims rather than larger ones. So I'll get right around classic and then take off an inch or so every other month.

    That's what I'm thinking of doing... I'd like to be rid of the hennaed 2/3rd of my hair without losing a big chunk of length all at once. I know your good advice, Nightshade! A bit at a time...

    My long term goal has been, ever since I was a little girl, knee length. Over all, I like classic better though, and if I were to ever reach one of those two lengths, I may cut back to tailbone or even higher.
