Spirelli, you are a sweetheart!

I keep shorter layers in the front around my face, it gives me a bit more lift, but I feel like I'm cheating when I say I'm at waist length because I have a deep U shaped hem, and I have layers up to mid-back. the layers help with curl and lift, but I think I might try growing them out....I can always cut layers back in if I decide to. Oh yes, and I clip my roots up while my hair dries.
