It's all up to you. My hair is at the bottom of the small of my back...has been for years. I cut a foot off to the middle of my shoulder blades each year but skipped this last year since it didnt grow much due to stress (i do trim it a couple times a year about a half inch/inch). My little sister thinks it's too long for her but she keeps hers a pixie length. A good friends sisters hair is almost to the floor. It just depends on your style, liking, and if you can handle it and take care of it.
