I suppose it depends on what you want. For a while, I had strange 3A wave curls at my roots, so I suppose I understand a bit.
I personally grew my hair out, and I really love how my hair looks now.
On a side note, I don't think your hair looks awful. It looks really beautiful. For your face shape, I think growing your hair out would be more flattering? But yeah, it depends on your opinion.
