How many are planning on extreme length's past classic?  The more I think about it the more I like it long and the longer it gets the more I like it. I'm almost curious to see how long it will grow.  Imagine floor length and beyond that would be so cool,  I'm considering it.  Just wanted to know everyones thoughts on this?

::raises hand:: Ooh ooh I am! Fingertip length is just a few inches past classic. Then again after getting there, I might change my hair goal. When hair gets super long, it gets to be a matter of "how long do I want my braid to be?". And then, it's like watching your braid grow very slowly. ETA: I think this is how many extreme longhairs end up with such long hair. Braiding, the true length is forgotten, then as the braid grows, the person doesn't notice, and their hair doesn't seem as long or extreme. That's my theory anyway. Completely unrelated to your thread, but .. um.

My goal is to first get to a yard. Then to a meter. Then as far past that I can go and still be comfortable and able to care for it.

If it does bug me I'm going to cut back to no shorter than a yard. Which is right about tailbone on me. I'm currently at waistband length / hip length. I'll never be above it again by choice.

At the beginning of the summer, my long-term goal was classic length.  Now I'm going for fingertip

I think the longer your hair gets, the longer you'll want it to get.

I agree! I started off wanting it at my shoulders but I never seemed to keep it at that length! It's at my shoulder-blades and I plan on going as long as it gets.

Hellfrozenover your hair looks real nice, I agree with you and Anais and Katja the longer it gets the more length it seems you want.  Anyway happy growing.

I'm going extreme too...I fear I may not be careful enough because it seems like whenever I get dressed its always in a hurry so I don't detangle as carefully as I should.  But I'm going for thigh length, and longer if I'm patient enough and I can keep it looking good at that length (meaning it doesn't look torn up from my constant hurry).

Ditto TLSF and Paul.  Great hair HFO!   Look forward to seeing more pics of your hair as it grows longer.

I am going for it.  My hair is not that long (mid to upper back) but I used to have it long enough to sit on.  I am going for as long as it will get.

At the moment, I just want it somewhere around my waist. This is more of a short term goal, though. For long term I plan on around my fingertips. It  depends on how heavy it gets. If I keep it layered somewhat, I can go longer. Otherwise,it is just to thick and heavy.
At the moment it is at 32 1/2 falling half a few inches below BSL without pulling.

I hope to reach waist length and since I'm only around a year or two away from my goal I'm toying with the idea of knee length. But past that I don't think I would be able to keep it healthy especially if it reached the ground! But it would be absolutly amazingly beautiful.

For me, there is a cut off point at waist length. After that, hair mostly becomes a decidedly unsexy, dead looking substance (of course hair is dead, but we don't want it to LOOK dead!)

     It's OK Fat, if you find my wife "decidedly un-sexy" now! Needless to say, I disagree. LOL Bob

For every one "Fatmoogas", there are plenty who find it decidedly attractive.  It's a matter of perception and personal preference.

I see your making your way around the hair forums after you were banned from the LHC.  These people are a bit harder to wind up. I want my curly hair to bounce down to my waist so it will have to past waist length for that to happen. Can't wait Big%20smile

I'm hoping to get to mid-thigh length. Not sure if it'll get that long, but my next goal is classic, which is 5-6" away

I haven't thought much past classic--though once I finally get there, I'm sure I won't want to just stop.  LOL

I'm shooting for floor length hair.

I'm about 2 inches or so away from my current goal of classic length, and I'm already considering going longer! I'm pretty sure the longest I could stand is knee length, but who knows? A few years ago, I never, ever thought my hair would be halfway down my bum, and it is now and I love it. Might just grow to the floor LOL

I haven't decided if I want an extreme length yet. Currently I'm maintaining around tail bone until my henna grows out. After that I might go to classic or knee. I like the way those two lengths look on other people. But I'm not sure if I would like it for myself because I don't like wearing my hair up a lot.

The longest my hair has ever been is a little above tailbone length.  I would like to go beyond that.  At least solidly below my butt.  I guess that is classic length.  After that I'm not sure what I will do.  Most likely I wil have it trimmed back to get rid of the splits.  Right now it's at 33 inches.  On me it is brushing the top of my hips.  As fast as my hair grow I may reach my goal length by March or April.

laststar, My hair goal length hopefully to the floor someday soon. Right now it's bra strap length. I love it long too.
