It's kind of hard to explain. Putting the sides up is more flattering in the front. But in the back it changes the way the hair lays and kind of takes away some of the volume. I think doing away with the layers all-together would be a mistake as I cold have pyramid head.
So I guess I can keep it the way it is, or add a bit more layering or possibly change the shape of the bottom. It's kind of rounded now - could be more straight across or V-shaped.
