Cut is good! I had a very distinctive shelf between my top layer and my bottom. She just cut the bottom. Which is great, b/c this is what I needed. I've been growing out my hair for over a year and have made very little progress in bringing the layers together, mainly b/c every time I got 3+ inches cut off the back (which seems to grow like a weed), my previous hairdresser cut off the top, too. My top is curlier than my bottom and with the shrinkage, it just wasn't working for me. I think (HOPE) this cut will grow in nicely. I'm tired of feeling "blah".
Have had my hair short for almost a year now. No regrets! Still loving it!
