Default My hair cut & my experience

I went to some random salon ,to a random stylist. It was extremely cheap ( about 16$ ). I washed and styled my hair at home and the lady cut my hair dry. It took her 20 minutes to shape my hair and shorten my shoulderlong curls (!) to a short slightly inverted bob. She combed my hair out and I was thinking like "Girl, WHAT are you doing?" I tried to relax though and think of the result. Funny, she asked my what I did to get my hair to look so defined...
After she turned my curls in a cloud I jumped in thee shower once again and styled it MY way. I love it! The main reason I let my hair grow was because I was afraid of not being womanly enough. Crazy. I look in the mirror and I feel sooo sexy and feminine. I was thrilled when my Mom swa me today and said :"Wow, now you look really feminine!"
I feel liberated! Short curls are versatile as well. No regrets at all. Pictures, yes yall want pictures?

Luv it! How many inches did you cut? And what do you do use to get your curls so defined?

Thank you so much ladies. Your compliments give me a boost! I still don't regret it.
To get defined curls I just take lots of styling lotion, gel or even just conditioner and fingercomb it through my hair. Scrunch with a towel and let it airdry. That's how I did my hair when it was long and I still do it this way. At night I just let my hair loose and in the morning I section my hair ,spray it with water and fingercomb some more product through my hair. 2nd day hair looks like first day hair.

She cut up to 6 inches, I think. It's really short in the back to get that inverted look.

xoxoxo and thanks again

That is so pretty. I had a style like that in the early 90's . I liked it but maintenance was a bear. I was in school with no funds for keeing the cut up. Folks really liked it though.

Great cut! When I had a perm I used to get my hair cut like that all the time. Now you are giving me ideas......

I'm envious. When ever I go in for a cheap cut, I almost always get a curl-tard who butchers me. You, on the other hand, look fabulous.

What a great cut - looks fab - BTW I love the use of the term 'curl-tard' that someone used in this thread - unfortunately a lot of stylists could be labelled with this term!!

Thank you so much! I feel the curly-love here!

The only thing that gets on my nerve (but then I don't care anymore) is that I can't tie my hair back. I'm letting it grow again anyway, but unlike my transitioning/growing out phase back then ,I'll enjoy each and every length of my hair.
When I had a short fro back then I used to think that I'd only be pretty and feminine when I have long hair. Everything in between was not acceptable. What was I thinking?
Even my dbf said that he liked short hair a liiittle more than long curls.

So all you short haired curlies: You look fab!
