try this: tools (in the hair mod), then convert 'Hair -> Splines' ** BE CAUTIOUS ** this could either freeze your scene or really kill the performance (i.e. save first). Now run your simulation, then delete "line01" or w/e the spline hair gets renamed to, the hair mod should now be the proper length in the viewport and renderer

*edit* after you delete the Spline Hair that gets created after the convert, your performance will return to normal and you'll have proper length etc
