Congrats on making the transition! Some of your ends do look curly. Do whatever will make you like your hair the most. If it gets uneven from cutting ends off (mine always is because I'm always snipping split ends and lopping off pieces when I don't like the way it's curling), you can always get it evened out at a later date.
